President's Notes
Dear Members,

Thanks for this opportunity to lead our club again this Rotary year.
I would like to encourage all members to consider standing for President , currently we have a PE a PE Nominee, we will in November at our AGM select a PE Nominee. If we can maintain this level of commitment to the club management program I am sure other members will reconsider WHY THEY have held back, we will need to recycle some passed Presidents.
If you consider the job of President, it is one of the easiest jobs in the club. You set up the clubs program from the information supplied to you by the clubs service chairpersons. Report the program to the DG then you just encourage and support the chairpersons and the program and once a week you stand up and welcome members and guests.

This year we have a Fellowship Chairperson, this was once always part of any Rotary club. Fellowship has always been a part of Rotary but over the last 10 years we have forgotten this important part of what Rotary has to offer members, fellowship. This year I would like us to have 3 or 4 outings these can be just social or could be part Vocational.
Please all think about how we can build on what we currently do and how we can improve and grow this year.

Remember what I said at our Changeover , what I would like to achieve this year.

Consolidate / Improve/ maintain/ Build.
To night was just a social get together and we should do more of this.
I look forward to catching up again next Monday.
Yours in Rotary


Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN)
Year 9 Student Dassakorn (Dass) Saton attended a weekend RYPEN camp in Mansfield and had a wonderful experience. Dass presented a recognition certificate (shown below) to President Bronnie.

Thanks to Past President Jan Douglas for organising such a wonderful social outing for Altona City Rotary.
Bay Running on the Bellarine Express...
From low gear leaving Docklands at 5 knots, the Port Phillip Bay crossing at an effortless 32 knots (into a howling headwind) was exhilarating for those who wanted some sea air... Melbourne is just visible in the distance.
 Did You Know........
The RYLA program began in Australia in 1959, when young people throughout the state of Queensland were selected to meet with Princess Alexandra, the young cousin of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Rotarians of Brisbane, who hosted the participants, were impressed with the quality of the young leaders.
It was decided to bring youth leaders together each year for a week of social, cultural and educational activities.
The RYLA program gradually grew throughout all the Rotary districts of Australia and New Zealand.
In 1971, the RI Board of Directors adopted RYLA as an official program of Rotary International.
Here is some information about our District RYLA program
Thinking of connecting with Rotary?
Meet on Mondays at Kooringal Golf Club, Wilga Avenue, Altona at 6.00 for 6.30 pm. Apologies: Phone 9315 0858 by 3.00 pm.
If you cannot perform your duty, please find a replacement or contact the Sergeant.
