Club Assembly - Tuesday 16 June.

President Tony informs us that the first half our next meeting on Tuesday 16th June will be a Club Assembly.
If there are items that you would like discussed, please send Tony an email.
The first two items already on the list are:
Item 1 – as we are already making significant savings on our personal costs for meals, pig, fines and raffles that we were paying at our face to face meetings – can members pay a small cost per week to help cover our ongoing costs including zoom as well as contributing to our significantly reduced funds to support our programs?
Item 2 - once we are back to face to face meetings do we still have some meetings by Zoom?
Committee Reports Please
Janine reminded committee chairs that 2019-2020 annual reports are now due.
No Quite So Young Talent Time
Kris Adam advised members that on 16 June members will be asked to reveal their talent – 5 minutes each presentation.
The Last Hurrah Polio Zoom Dinner for 2019/20
With the drive to reach US$50m (to guarantee the Gates Foundation bonus) this Rotary year, a novel scheme is in development across Rotary in Australia and New Zealand in which every Rotarian ‘down under’ has the opportunity to make a modest donation to the cause of polio eradication at the end of June through what has been tagged ‘The Last Hurrah Polio Zoom Dinner for 2019/20’.
This Dinner will be staged in two parts – the first on Tuesday, June 16, involving District Governors and senior leaders, and the second during the last week in June – Monday, June 29, and Tuesday, June 30, to stream the program via the new RDU Youtube Studio to all clubs and members in Zone 8 (NZ and Australia) to be part of a 35,000 strong Zoom meeting and fundraising opportunity to help reach Rotary’s goal of US$50m in 2019/20.
Further details will follow and will be provide so those members of our Club who would like to view the program can do so and, if they wish to do so, to make a donation to the polio eradication program of Rotary.

District Governor Rosanne Kava is inviting us all to attend a Presentation by RI President Mark Daniel Maloney at 11.00 am on Saturday 20 June.  Mark will be reflecting on his year as RI President but also sharing some insights on the impact of COVID-19 on Rotary moving in to the future.

This is a unique opportunity to meet (virtually) with Mark and to ask questions.
If you do have question, please ensure you send them to DG Rosanne by 18 June. ( so they can be put forward for response.
Of course, not every question can be answered but DG Rosanne will endeavour to include as many as possible.

Barwon Health Foundation Men's Health Week Webinar

Next week is Men's Health Week - an extremely important week which focuses on getting crucial health messaging to males.

We are invited to join a special webinar that the Barwon Health Foundation is presenting via Zoom on Thursday 18 June from 2pm – 3pm with special guests presenters :
•             Kate Rankin, Consultant Cardiologist at Barwon Health
•             Nino Di Pasquale, Director of Nursing, Mental Health
•             Richard Grills, Barwon Health Director of Urology
- obviously three areas of health concern for males.  The meeting is being hosted by Barwon Health Director, Ken Harrison AM, chair of the Foundation's Leadership Circle.
Interesting facts on men’s health include -
  • A boy born in Australia in 2010 has a life expectancy of 78.0 years while a baby girl born at the same time could expect to live to 82.3 years old.  Right from the start, boys suffer more illness, more accidents and die earlier than their female counterparts.

  • Men take their own lives at four times the rate of women (that's five men a day, on average).  Accidents, cancer and heart disease all account for the majority of male deaths.

  • Only 30% of a man's overall health is determined by his genetics and 70% is controllable through lifestyle.

Register in advance for this free webinar as soon as you can:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
As a webinar, it will simply be a matter of logging in via the link provided to view and hear the webinar. You will not be on camera (so, as is a male's right from time-to-time, no need to shave) and your microphone will automatically be on mute (so any background noise or interruptions will be unnoticed).
Participation (in terms of asking questions of the presenters) in a webinar will be explained but it is simply done by clicking on "Raise Hand" button in the Zoom window and the facilitator will turn on your microphone so you can be heard.
