Club News
Last night we had our Rotary Club of Warners Bay changeover. Members and guests all zoomed in as our current President Les Corrigan passed the collar over to President Elect Barry Knowles.
 
We were pleased to have District Governer Graeme and Sue and Area Governer Clarice join us for our formalities and celebrations.
 
 
As you may be aware, each month Rotary celebrates a theme. Each year, April is designated  Rotary Maternal and Child Health Month, which is one of Rotary’s ‘Areas of Focus’.

Around the world, Rotary is involved with many projects which address issues relating to and aiming to improve the health of mothers and children. These include projects which look at improving nutrition, developing better antenatal and birth care, hygiene, school health, and general health issues.
 
Another great meeting tonight with 26 participants logging on.
 
President Les and President Elect Barry gave us some updates on club business. We discussed our upcoming projects for both this year and next year. The club has had working parties meeting on various aspects of our club throughout the pandemic and continues to engage members regularly.
 
Andrew Best Supervisor, Club & District Support from Rotary International, Australia, South Pacific & Philippines joined us with a very informative presentation about his role and many others in the Parramatta office, we all learned something new. He also gave an update on his new club Rotary Social Impact Network, how they have chartered, what they have planned and also showed us how they have been communicating as an online club. Thanks again Andrew. 

Adrian gave us some insight into where he came from and his career and family life. Thanks also to AG Clarice who also joined in after the very first District Changeover of the year.
 
A highly enjoyable evening. Stay well

Hello cyclists

The Rotary Club of Warners Bay has run a cycle event in the Lake Macquarie area for over 20 years.

We feel it is time to rejuvenate the event, but would very much value your opinion to ensure the changes we are planning are what the cycling community and their families want.

If you could take a couple of minutes to complete the attached survey we would be most grateful.

Thanks in anticipation, and we hope to see you in 2021!

Tonight’s meeting had 25 attendees and focused on a very important topic of Child Protection presented by Wilma Simmons.
 
Firstly a little business from President Les on the Constitution update and adoption.
 
Wilma took us through her presentation and an engaging Q&A followed from members. Thank you Wilma. Our getting to know you spot was with Brian Maclachlan sharing about his journey of life long learning.
 
DG Graeme and Sue Hooper also joined to listen in as we were heading into a project meeting on our Charity Bike Riding event and the direction it will be taking in the future.
 
Thanks to our speakers, contributors, AG Clarice and DG Graeme and Sue for attending.
