Welcome from the District Governor Antoinette and I are pleased to th welcome you to the 20 D9520 Conference. We hope that you will have a “Golden Experience” here in Bendigo. Special thanks is extended to PDG Noel Trevaskis and Sue for agreeing to attend our Conference as RI President Ray Klinginsmith’s representative. This year is the first year that DGs have been able to choose the RI representative and I am pleased that Noel has accepted the offer to join us. Noel has a wealth of Rotary experience and is currently chair of Australian Rotary Health. There is so much pressure on clubs to spend their hard earned dollars these days and so many worthy causes. The committee has asked speakers to keep in the back of their minds what their organisation could do with a thousand dollars. We have also introduced into the program “Soap Box“ sessions. These will allow clubs and committees to highlight their programs and seek support if required. The program includes a number of speakers who have been “white Knights” and established programs which have inspired others to come on board and support those who are in need. I am grateful that they have given their time freely as they make us aware of how lucky we are to be able to be present at this conference. I would like to acknowledge the tireless work of Conference Chair Bill Davies and his committee and members and partners of the Rotary Club of Brownhill Creek ably led by President David Rusk and PP Bill Giles. We hope that “Conservatory Capers” on Friday evening will give you an opportunity to relax and dance the night away. I hope that you will go away from this conference full of ideas to assist you in Building Communities and Bridging Continents and reflecting on new friendships established and old ones revisited. Please support our wonderful sponsors! Regards DG Malcolm -2-

Our club has a strong tradition of service to people and local community, along with an ongoing commitment to International peace and understanding. We have worked hard to “Build Communities and Bridge Continents” over the past 30 years. Our club members value long standing traditions but we have also responded to changing expectations and different times. We hope that the conference program will allow us all to celebrate the past and to focus, with confidence and enthusiasm, on our plans for the future. The Conference Organising Committee and members of our club have been working tirelessly over the past twelve months to ensure that the District Conference is one that you will enjoy and remember for many years to come. We believe the speakers will entertain you and provide valuable information, but will also present some challenges for you to consider. We hope that you will leave this conference with renewed energy and enthusiasm for the programs, priorities and aims of Rotary. In the words of our International President, Ray Klinginsmith, we trust that the conference will help your club to become “bigger, bolder and better”.

Guest Speaker Ms. Moira Kelly AO Founder, Children First Foundation Moira Kelly, the Executive Director of Children First Foundation, was just eight years old when she watched a documentary at school about the life and work of the late Mother Theresa. Moira vowed to her mother that she would work with the Calcutta Saint, and she did some years later. It was then the seeds of her own personal philosophy were sown – “Wherever there is the greatest evil, the greatest good can be achieved.” The lessons Moira learned from the diminutive Sister, coupled with her own inner determination, set the foundation for a lifetime of charity work. Moira has worked with crack-addicted babies in the Bronx, with children in remote aboriginal communities, with Romania’s AIDS orphans, and in Bosnia and Kosovo during the crisis. Moira made it her mission to offer hope to children in developing countries who need life-saving and lifechanging medical treatment they would otherwise be deprived of. She slowly developed a network of hospitals and doctors in Australia, England, Ireland and the USA who would treat these children. During their treatment in Australia, these children are cared for at Moira’s “Children First Rotary Farm” outside Melbourne until they are well enough to return to their homes. In 2001 Moira was made an Officer (AO) in the General Division of the Order of Australia in recognition of her “outstanding service to the Australian community through the provision of social support and service for disadvantaged people, and to the international community through the provision of humanitarian relief and assistance and the organisation of medical treatment for those affected by war or insurrection.” - 13 -

The beyondblue butterfly logo was designed in 2000 by leading identity management and design experts Cato Partners. They, and Fineline, donated their services for this project in support of the work being done by beyondblue: the national depression initiative and in recognition of all Australians living with a depression-related illness. The logo reflects release from heaviness and darkness through the uplifting, gentle butterfly. The shadow falls below the butterfly to resemble a human profile, reinforcing the intimate nature of depression and the need for greater understanding across the wider community. Cato partners chose the colours to establish a contrast between the butterfly and the shadow. They also suggest calmness, confidence and subtle reassurance.
