President's Notes
Hi Everyone, 
Hi everyone,
Our guest speaker, Penny Ealem was accompanied by husband Stuart and spoke about kidneys, their vital functions and how to promote kidney health - drinking water tops the list for healthy kidneys
It was lovely to represent the club and help celebrate their 70th Charter Anniversary with our friends from RC Willi
Ray reported on the District Assembly and Foundation Grants Seminar
Our club Change Over is Friday 14th of June - please confirm your attendance – Monday 3rd is our last meeting beforehand.
Accordingly, we have cancelled the meeting due on the 17thof June.
Due to the AGM at Kooringal on 24th of June, we will meet in the restaurant for a social night instead.
We have a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle in the Grand Final Eve public holiday and looking to have another Friday in July.
The council has asked us to cook the BBQ on 23/10 for Children’s Week.

On Sunday, 28 April, 24 members, partners and friends gathered at Port Phillip Ferries dock to board the magnificent "Bellarine Express" to Portarlington for lunch at the Portarlington Golf Club.
The lovely Genna drove us to the Golf Club to enjoy a delicious lunch- just ask connoisseur Charlie M. Genna then transported those interested in the local shops, while others continued to enjoy the hospitality and Barry H's jokes and stories. "Onya Bazz." Then another smooth return trip to Docklands. Unanimous vote- a delightful day- and we need more regular "Social Days!"

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.
A Sunday lunch with a difference...
Portarlington Golf Club excelled at catering Sunday Lunch for Charter Members Barry Hanson and Lavinia, Peter McDermott and Jeanette, and the rest of our group.
