Presidents Report – 21st Feb 2018


Dear Rotarians and Friends,

Another good week at our Club and an interesting talk from PDG Peter Gilbert who talked with us about the Rotary Foundation and their million dollar dinner, which may not have been what people had thought it might be. In a nutshell, Rotarians can promise to leave $US10,000 from their will and be awarded a Rotary Foundation Benefactor now. What a nice legacy to leave after we are gone. We also heard about the great work being done around the world via donations to the Foundation and through Clubs that put in the efforts for projects that help those in need.

Next week we will have the honour of hearing from one of our very own, Chris Bence. No doubt Chris has a very interesting and informative story to tell and we will learn a great deal about our newest member. Come along and soak up some great fellowship and get the low down on Chris.

Prior to next week’s meeting we will have a Board meeting starting at 5.30pm. Board members – please forward your reports to other members prior to the meeting.

Nice to see Evelyn continue to enjoy our company and we also welcomed Georgelina back with us again.

Going to the Conference? Please remember to register at Try Booking. Reserving the room via Merle is not registering for Conference.

Well folks, the Footy Tipping is on again!! Please help to get bigger numbers into the competition, please ask your reli’s, neighbours, friends or people you meet in the street! The more the better; we are not so fussy about who joins. We attach the flier for your promotional efforts.

There is still a lot of work do, so…… Remember our theme as we go about our daily business – ‘Making a Difference’- a motto that I have no doubt we can all live up to.

Yours in Rotary,
Ian Bushby
