President's Notes
Dear Members,
At last nights meeting I reported to the club an up date on the health of Jack Davidson. Jack will soon be going to a rehab centre at Waurn Ponds near Geelong. After a week or so there he will be allowed to return to his home - expect it will be a few weeks before we see Jack at a Monday meeting.

It was also great to have Loretta at our meeting, we had missed her a lot. She still has some health issues but looked well.

Our speaker was also a prospective member Sol Sahhar. Sol told us about his work in his chosen field and the lead up to his setting a practice in Queen St Altona.
Sol also told us about the interesting positions he has held over his 50 year career. It was a very interesting story. Thanks Sol.
Monday the 7th October DG Grant Hocking and Melissa will make their official visit to our club. Grant would like to meet with the clubs management team at 5.15 pm to talk about our clubs program.
I have proposed the 7th October be a partners night.

Have a good week, see you next Monday at 6.30 and after at the board meeting, all members of the club are welcome to attend.
Something to think about and give me some feedback. How would members feel if we had meeting between 6.30 and 7.30 as part of the normal meeting.

Give it some thought.

Yours in Rotary

Rotary Samples Port...(Arlington...)
Enjoying the Sun at Portarlington, on the back deck of the Bellarine Express- President Bronnie and Immediate Past President Maureen. 
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.
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.
