President's Message

Rhonda Abotomey delivered a strong message when she spoke to the club, that though we might be in our darkest hour there is always hope and good often eventuates. Rhonda is a member of a Melbourne University team that has focused on Post-Traumatic Growth following the Black Saturday fires. Their work has just been released and it’s well worth making the effort if you want to try and understand what those who suffered severe trauma at the time think about their lives since.  Christmas is only a few weeks away and I would like you to spare a thought about what we should do for our final meeting of the year December 14. Before that we have our annual meeting on November 23, following shortly from the District’s annual meeting which was attended by Bill and David. Thanks gents. Peter.

Club member Anthony Mayer PHF and friend of Rotary Blake Stanton completed the Eureka Climb yesterday.  The Eureka Climb is Australia’s biggest vertical race held at one of the world’s tallest residential buildings, Eureka Tower in Southbank, Melbourne.  The event raises much needed funds via donations for Interplast & Whitelion, who are both committed to helping disadvantaged people. Eureka Climb participants  ascend 1642 steps to level 88’s observation deck known as Eureka Skydeck (the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere). Eureka Climb is in the top 20 (amount of stairs) of stair climbs in the world and is host to an Elite Race for some of Australia’s best stair climbers.  Well done Ant and Blake on raising so much money for Interplast!  You can still donate to the team here

Registrations are now open for District Conference 2016 and you can register on line.  The Conference will be held in Wangaratta on the last weekend in February. Accommodation bookings are going to be best made early. Make sure in 2016 you "Get Into Rotary".
