Altona City Rotary eBulletin: 4 February 19
President's Notes
Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year!

Once again, we hosted the cluster BBQ – welcoming everyone back after the break. It was lovely to welcome Rotary friends from Altona and Williamstown Rotary Clubs as well as our AG Paul and (his partner) Louise. Thanks to everyone who made it happen. Our chefs – Charlie, Bob and Barry on the BBQ and Kay with salads and awesome fruit platter. To Barry selling the raffle tickets, cashier Ray and Bryan organising bookings.  

Preparations for our Charity Golf day on Friday 22 Feb. are underway. If you can assist in any way, either volunteering on the day or with sourcing teams or sponsorship, please let Charlie M know.

There is no meeting next week on Monday 28 Jan., due to the Australia Day public holiday.

Yours in Rotary,

P Bronnie

RI Convention- 2023
It is with great excitement that we announce Melbourne as the host city for the 2023 Rotary Internationl Convention, attracting over 20,000 delegates and the largest conference secured this century for Victoria. Thirty years since Melbourne last hosted the same international event.
This is a big deal!
Melbourne is a Big Events City! The global spotlight will be on Melbourne and how we present ourselves to the world.
The Convention will take place in late May 2023 using superb venues: Rod Laver Arena and the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. All activities and events are within the Heart and Soul of Melbourne.
This is now a multi-district project initiated by RC Melbourne and D9800. A vital part of hosting is to have an engaged and energised volunteer team to assist all visitors during the Convention. So, "Save The Dates" 27-31 May 2023!

(This achievement was the culmination of a lot of work by people in the Rotary Club of Melbourne, the Melbourne Convention Bureau and the Host Organising Committee).

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

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
