Dear Fellow Rotarians,
I hope you've all had a great weekend!
Please remember to register your attendances or apologies (decline) on ClubRunner asap for Tuesday night, which is our Vocational visit to The Andrew's Centre, 2 Hanna Drive, Endeavour Hills. Off Heatherton Road.
Partners and friends are very welcome. We will enjoy a tour and a 2 course dinner, cost is $35.00 per head.
Please transfer your payment into our CHARITY account- BSB 013312 A/C 305698868
OR you can pay on the night CASH or CARD (on the square).
REMINDER: Our guest speaker Frida Umuhoza is scheduled for Tuesday 11th April and I'm hoping to have a large number of people in attendance.  
  Please invite your family and friends, they are very welcome. 
 It would be great if you could all get your RSVP's in early for this event.
We have another 'ladies morning tea' at the St. James Church Hall on Wednesday morning. 
Val has been kind enough to offer to help me out with this one, if anyone else is free and would like to join us, we'd love to have you along. Please text me on 0402 242 743 if you can help in any way.
If anyone would like to do some baking of cookies or slices for our morning tea, it would be appreciated. Any donations can be brought along on Tuesday night.
Hans, John Ternel and I, will be attending a Graduation Ceremony for Operation New Start 
Casey on Thursday morning.  This is a fantastic Youth program which we are very keen to be involved with and to offer our support.
Operation Newstart provide personal development programs for young people considered 'at risk' of disengaging from education.  Participants are between ages 13 - 16.
I hope to see many of you on Tuesday night at the Andrew's Centre.
Kind regards,
Rotary Month
Club Night - 21st March 2022
Last Tuesday we heard updates from all the Service chairs on the wonderful work that has been happening this Rotary year.
Cornerstone Meal Service
The Cornerstone meal service last week was very different with the new kitchen still a work in Progress.
District Assembly
Action required: Register for this District event
Assembly and Avenues of Service is an excellent opportunity to explore new views and engage with fellow Rotarians, particularly new Rotarians who can learn so much about our amazing organisation.
All Presidents-Elect are required to attend to vote for the District budget. Incoming Treasurers and Secretaries will find attending Avenues an essential education for the incoming year, even for those repeating club roles with years of experience. Your sharing of knowledge and ideas will benefit everyone.
Our 1-day event at Nossal High at Berwick on 22nd April starts at 9 am for Assembly and Avenues beginning at 10 am. Lunch is provided and the day will finish off with a BBQ tea at 5 pm.
I invite you all to join me on this learning and networking day.
RSVP 17th April 2023  for Catering.
Companionship over morning Tea
Surprise catch-up at the airport
Kam and Peter ran into each other at the airport last week. Kam and Christine were off to Japan and Peter and Tina were heading to Thailand.
Peter wanted to know if this counted as a Rotary meeting.
