Good evening all Beechworth Rotarians:
FIRST PRIORITY :  PLEASE PHONE OR EMAIL SECRETARY GEORGE BY TOMORROW (MONDAY) NIGHT TO CONFIRM YOUR ATTENDANCE OR APOLOGY FOR THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT’S DINNER
PAST EVENTS:
Wednesday 5 February: We had a great “New Generations” dinner meeting at our Rotary Hall.  Our Jack Tully Scholarship Awardee Meaghan Kearney attended with her mother and father.  Also Jack Tully’s daughter Debbie was present to participate in this award keeping the memory and legacy of her late father and our Club member Jack alive.  Meaghan received her $2,000 cheque (first photo) and then spoke to us about her university studies starting this year and how the scholarship will assist her.
 
After another nice dinner provided by chef Peter Rushford, we were treated to a very confident talk by Eimhin Moore on the benefits he received in leadership development by being chosen by us to attend our Rotary District 9790 week long RYLA Conference last November.  We were pleased to have Eimhin’s grandfather join us to hear Eimhin’s experiences at RYLA.  Eimhin’s employer and co-owner of Beechworth Bakery Marty  Matassoni also attended and spoke highly of Eimhin’s talents and expressed his confidence in Eimhin’s future progress as a leader. (See remaining photos).
 
Patrick O’Shea from Bright Rotary Club also spoke briefly of the “Ride to Conference” event – a team of about 20 cyclists riding in North East Victoria for 3 days to finish at our Rotary District Conference in Albury on Thursday 19 March after overnight camping at Beechworth Wednesday 18 March.  Patrick asked our Club to assist by providing the team with meals that night.
 
Wednesday 12 February: Board Meeting.  We had a good roll up of 10 members.  Secretary George will get minutes out to all members shortly but in the meantime please note the following:
  1. We will help the “Ride to Conference”  cyclists by providing early dinner of lasagne, salad and sweets at @20.00 per head on the Wednesday 18 March where they are camping at Silver Creek Caravan Park before we go to our scheduled Board Meeting that night.
  2. We will provide lunch of salad rolls for the B2B walkers on 27 March.
  3. We will have our past members night on Wednesday 22 April.
  4. We will have a progressive dinner to raise money for Rotary Foundation on Wednesday 20 May.
  5. John Costello now has 36 bookings for 53 sites for our Easter Market – a good sign this early for a successful market.
 
COMING EVENTS:
 
Wednesday 19 February:             District Governor Brian Peters and our cluster Assistant Governor Richard Lovett will be visiting us to meet with present and next Board members from 5.30pm at our Rotary Hall which will be followed by them attending and DG Brian talking to all members at our 6.30 for 7.00 dinner meeting.  They will be bringing a member of ROTEX (the Rotary Youth Exchange Group) with them.
Wednesday 26 February:  Social Bowls Night – we have reserved this night with Beechworth Bowling Club for a bare foot bowls night to raise funds for our Rotary Bushfire Relief Fund and have invited neighbouring Rotary Clubs to attend.  Further details will follow but it is shaping up to be a big event.  Our friends at Appin Park, Wangaratta, Rotary Club have already told us they will have 19 members including partners coming.
These dates will be followed by a full program in the following weeks including the Canadian RFE visit Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 March, District Conference at Albury Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 March and our Easter Market Saturday 11 April.
 
See you Wednesday night !
Jim
 
 

Tonight the Jack Tully Scholarship was awarded to Meaghen Kearney who is off to La Trobe University to study. It was wonderful that Debbie Tully, Jack's daughter was with us to make the presentation.

At tonight's Dinner Meeting our RYLA participant Eimhin Moore gave an amazing presentation of his experience at the RYLA Conference in November last year. His enthusiasm for the programme gave members an insight into this worthwhile Rotary project.
