Presidents Report 16th May 2018

Ian Bushby rosanna rotary president 2017-2018

Dear Rotarians and Friends,

Once again we hear and see from one of our own, Evelyn Woods, and a great ‘guest speaker’ she was and is. Hearing about our members and their stories is always interesting and usually proves of more interest than many outsiders!

What’s going on around our Club at the moment?

Brian has returned from East Timor helping out with the RAWCS project on the establishment of a dental practice. Well done to Brian for his great efforts.

The market last week seemed busy but from our takings was again down on what we have been used to. The trend does not look so good and some thinking is need- ed on how to reinvigorate and rejuvenate the market back to its former glory. Better and more publicity, fort- nightly or what else can we consider?

In terms of the market we should acknowledge the efforts of Neil Watt. On holiday in a warm and sunny Queensland but flies back to us especially for the market. After the flew back to continue his sojourn in the warm parts. Many thanks Neil.

Unfortunately, at this time we have not heard about how the BBQ went at Melbourne Polytechnic on Thursday but thanks to Brian, Chris, Peter and a few other members for putting the effort to help.

Congratulations to Peter on receiving a further sapphire pin to his Paul Harris Fellow acknowledgments, well- earned and deserved. Thanks to Noel who was kind enough to say a few words and present the recognition. Peter is pushing on with the Bali project and the bus has been scheduled for delivery in May with Peter making a visit at the handover. Again, a big CONGRATULATIONS and thanks to Peter and Ruth for the finalisation of a wonderful project.

Our meeting this coming week, May 16 will be all about technology as here about the latest and greatest, from one of own, Florin. Remember, it is 6pm for 6.30pm start night. I look forward to seeing you all there. Following the meeting there will be a joint Board meeting at the home of Barrie and Val Williams. Thank you to Barrie for offering to open his home for us.

As our Rotary year is in the last quarter now, we need to make every item count as we complete a good Rotary year. We’re not there yet, but we are in a winning position so let’s keep up the hard work and remember our theme as we go about our daily business – ‘Making a Difference’ – a motto that I have no doubt we are all living up to.

Yours in Rotary,

Ian Bushby
