President's Message

Greetings All,
At last Monday’s meeting I circulated a listed as a starter to seriously think about our information night/membership drive. It was meant to be a contentious document to engage discussion and set a course to get moving.
 
We cannot keep resting on our laurels expecting others to take up the running.
 
Action is required now, not next week or the week after. I would like us to continue the discussion this week with the aim of coming up with a format to proceed promptly.
 
Work has commenced on the Salvo’s kitchen and shower renovations. There appears to be a problem with the top provided for the kitchen cabinets. Jeff is negotiating with the builder and will report to us on Monday night.
 
The touch up painting has of the salvo’s hall has been put on hold until all other work is completed.
 
Confirmation has been received from Fran Chambers of the Rotary Club of Mornington that Edwin’s transfer to them paperwork has been completed.
The Shire of Mornington has been followed up with reference to no response to our request to tidy up the local parks bearing our name. It appears no contact will be made until a Shire Officer has inspected the parks. To that end I have been given a service request number 1921739 and “personal contact will be made in due course.
 
I sincerely wish to thank Mark for his agreement to do a newsletter very now and then provided copy is sent to him.

ATLANTA, Ga. (Feb. 14, 2017) – Rotary’s 108th annual international convention June 10–14 is expected to attract 40,000 Rotary club members from over 160 countries, and will inject an estimated $52.3 million into Atlanta’s economy.

Bill Gates will speak at this year's Rotary International Convention. 

Often described as a “mini-United Nations”, Rotary’s third convention in Atlanta will transform the Georgia World Congress Center into a cultural kaleidoscope as the organization’s global network of volunteers gather to exchange ideas on how to improve lives and bring positive, lasting change to communities around the world.

Foundation Gala Dinner
November 26 November District 9820 celebrated 100 year of Rotary Foundation
 

100 Years of Doing Good in the World

Arch Klumph’s idea for an endowment fund dedicated to “doing good in the world” planted the seed of The Rotary Foundation in 1917. Thanks to his vision and staunch advocacy, and the extraordinary generosity of Rotary members worldwide, that fund has become one of the world’s leading humanitarian foundations.

On Saturday, 26th November, Rotarians and friends from across D9820 gathered in support of the Gala Dinner held at the Cardinia Cultural Centre to celebrate our Rotary Foundation turning 100 years. 


That’s a century of Rotary members changing lives and improving communities all over the world. And that’s definitely something worth celebrating.  All of us in attendance enjoyed a great night of fun, laughter and dancing ‘til we dropped, to the music of The Baker Boys.  Past District Governor and The D9820 Rotary Foundation Chairman Tony Spring, along with Past District Governor David Louden and District Governor Lynne Westland cut the cake which was enjoyed by everyone.

Through our Foundation Rotary members have supported thousands of projects to provide clean water, fight disease, promote peace, provide basic education, and grow local economies. We’ve also been a leader in the fight to eradicate polio worldwide.  The centennial is the perfect time to share this impressive record with the our community and the world. Join us in making sure that every Rotary member and people in every community know about the vital work of Rotary and its Foundation.
All of us in attendance had a great night and sincerely thank TRF Chairman Tony Spring, DGN Janne Speirs and PDG Charlie Speirs for all the hard work that went into an extremely successful night.  Well done, and ‘thank you’.

District Governor Lynne Westland
