The #SayNo2familyviolence was originally the a Maryborough Rotary (Victoria) Initiative.
On Saturday the 29th of June the Rotary Club of Horsham East Inc gathered for its 49th Annual Changeover Dinner.  The dinner was held at Baa3400, to celebrate the previous 12 months under the leadership of President Geoff Eagle.  Geoff has lead the club wonderfully during the Rotary year.  During the year the club has been involved in many fundraising adventures to raise money to support local, district and international projects. 
During the year the club disbursed $40,935 for various projects.
One of the highlights of the evening, the club recognised Past President Debbie Delahunty for her 19 years of dedication to Rotary and her involved in many areas of our club especially the area of youth.  Debbie was presented with a Paul Harris Recognition.  We also recognised Dick Gill a friend of Rotary for all his with hands on support over the years, with a certificate of service. 
At the end of the evening Rotarians and guest welcomed our incoming President Tom Gallagher.
The clubs exchange student from Brazil, Gabby gave her final presentation before returning home after her 12 month youth exchange to Horsham Australia.  Gabby's presentation of her year with us was very passionate and emotional.  Gabby has been a great exchange student and the club has enjoyed having her over the past 12 months.   We all wish Gabby all the best on her return home and for her future.   We also had past exchange student Heta visited us at this meeting.  Heta was an exchange student from Finland 3 years ago.  It was great to see her back visiting,
Recently the Rotary Club of Horsham East in partnership with the Rotary Club of Horsham, Wimmera Lodge 70 (Horsham), and the Lions Club of Horsham have commenced work to rejuvenate Horsham Leaves of Love Memorial Gardens at the Horsham Cemetery.  
The gardens were a joint project in 2008 involving the Rotary Club of Horsham East, Rotary Club of Horsham, Apex Club 15, Apex Club of Jardwa, Lions Club of Horsham, Lions Club of the City of Horsham, Masonic Lodge of Wimmera (number 70) Horsham, Quota International of the Wimmera and SIDS and Kids.
The rejuvenation project will consist of installing a new watering system, artificial lawn area, footpath, new plants and general maintenance of the area.   The work will continue over the next several weeks.
On 28th of June our club and kindred organisations gathered at the Horsham Golf Club to celebrate the Rotary Club of Horsham East Inc. 2017-2018 years.   During the year the cub continued to be involved in local, district and international Rotary projects.  We became involved in the sayNo2familyviolence campaign which was commenced by the Rotary Club of Maryborough.  Outgoing President Steve Holmes said, I could list the differences that Rotary is making this year and the years dating back to the beginning in 1905, which would take all the pages available in this annual report. Rotary makes a difference locally in our community, within our district and both nationally and internationally with a combined effort of the 1.2 million Rotarians wide world.
To me the real difference that Rotary is making is the in the people who join Rotary, in taking them out of their comfort zone, from their working life and home life, making them better people to service their community. Rotary gives you skills in public speaking, conducting an effective meeting and managing projects along with the people involved. It has been said that organizing volunteers is akin to herding cats but preserving with this task can help appreciate other people’s abilities and gain the most from their volunteer hours. The difference Rotary makes in your life will depend how much you commit to Rotary.
President Geoff Eagle was inducted as the club’s president for 2018-2019.

Horsham East Rotarians Phil Proctor and Barry Sherwell are gearing up to ride the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) fundraising Ride for a Cure event in the Barossa Valley. They are pictured with exchange student Julian Berthelot.

There are 122,300 Australians affected by type 1 or juvenile diabetes. This disease is not caused by lifestyle factors, and it usually arises in childhood and lasts a lifetime because it destroys the ability to produce insulin, which is vital for life. There is no cure - yet.
