Last Week's Program


Chair Kris Adam opened the meeting and Acting President Tony welcomed all.

President David continues to provide updates on the weather in Toronto as the Rotary Convention kicks off.

Kris Adam advised no Swiss exchange student for us, sadly, but we have established a connection with Newcomb Secondary College who have expressed enthusiasm for the Youth exchange program.

News from the Rotary Club of Epworth
Our past member and great friend Diana Marshall is enjoying some quality time in the Bill Pratt suite in the Frank Pinder Wing. 
Pop in and see Diana if you're Epworthy!

Peter Cook has scarves looking for good homes.
They are red and white which happens to the colours of a particular British football club. Do you know which?
If you answer correctly, you'll take home a box full of the tags which Terry Thornton and others who would like to spend some quality snipping time are removing on Saturday 14 July at Terry Thornton's home at 6 Caudry St, Highton at 2.00 pm. Bring scissors and food to share.

Adrian reported that on the previous Saturday a group of our members catered at the Hamburger Stand and cleared $642.00.

Defying The Drift
Stan Deans reminded us that The Defying the Drift program will be held at the end of September this year.
It is a Sunday to Wednesday residential program this year at Horsham.
It aims to keep young people in rural communities by demonstrating the employment opportunities in their home area.
Stan Deans reminded us that we seek Year 10 & 11 students to attend the course and inspire them to take a career in agriculture, horticulture or animal husbandry.
Think about the growers.

Tree Planting Day
Peter Funston advise that we are tree planting again this year and the date is 29 July, likely at the same location as next year.
Peter will provide more details.
Rotaract Club of Barwon Change Over

An invitation has been received from the Barwon Rotaract Club to its Changeover Meeting to be held on Friday, 13th July, 2018 at The Deck, 2 Gheringhap Street, commencing with dinner at 7.00pm. 

Geelong East Rotary Club inducted the Deakin University Rotaract Club in the 2006-2007 Rotary year.  Since then, our Club and the Barwon Rotaract Club, as it is know now, has had a very close and productive association.

It would be good if half a dozen of our members could be present at the Barwon RC Changeover.  The RSVP is by 10 July, 2018. (No underscore.)
