Altona City Rotary eBulletin: 14 Jan 19
President's Notes
Hi Everyone,

We had our Christmas break up on Monday and it was lovely to welcome all our guests – PDG John King and Elaine and partners, our Honorary members and friends and family including my Rotary Mum, Barb Board. Thanks to everyone who made it happen – Frank liaising with Kooringal, our MC and trivia master Charlie H, Charlie M for organising the raffle.

A highlight was presenting Leon with a Royce Abbey Award, acknowledging his contribution to increasing membership in our club. The award acknowledges members with great enthusiasm for Rotary and the club contribution allows community leaders from developing countries to come to Australia to learn about agriculture to aid their communities back home. I admired Past RI President Royce and he always greeted me with great warmth.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered at our record-breaking Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on Saturday. As always, we had fun and fellowship, as we raised money for our community.

We will return after the Christmas break on the 14th of Jan with a social night and need to confirm numbers with Frank via email.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and restful break.

Yours in Rotary,

P Bronnie

Multi-District Conference-Update

Dear On To Conference Champion

Thanks again for your help with promoting out Multi District Conference.  There are over 1300 registered from across Victoria and around 500 from District 9800.

It's not too late for members to register and we will be offering the Early Bird discount until next Sunday. Payment from now on will need to be by credit card.

Attached is a list for all D9800 Clubs up current until Sunday morning.

I have attached details about the Rotary Showcase “What Rotary does?” which is a fantastic opportunity for your Club to share its favourite projects with other clubs.

I will be emailing all those registered for the conference next week with details of:

  • Final Program
  • Leadership and Foundation Breakfasts
  • Details of dietary requests on file requesting any update of details.
In mid-January I will update information on venue access, carparking, dress for the Gala Dinner etc but most of this information is available on the website www.rotaryconference.org.au

Regards

 

Mark
