Club Bulletin 19 and 24 June 2018

Meeting Numbers 1498 and 1499

Future Meetings On Tuesday 19 June we will have as Guest Speaker, Rob Christianson from the Orange Sky Charity Laundry. Members would be aware that this charity provides a clothes washing and drying service to the many homeless people living on the fringes of our communities. This is a mobile service and travels to where it is needed to uplift the personal hygiene and health of people living on the streets. This attendance was arranged by PP Peter T many months ago and the presentation should be very interesting. Also at this meeting we will see the induction as a corporate member Cathy Miller, CEO of Minda Inc. Cathy spoke to a Club meeting a couple of months ago and has accepted our invitation of corporate membership with the same terms as for Melissa Priest of the City of Holdfast Bay.

Past Meetings (1) At our meeting on Tuesday 15 May, we had Barry Heffernan from the William Kibby VC Veterans’ Shed as Guest Speaker. Barry is well known to us as spokesman for the veterans who are in contact with him and he spoke of their project of providing “care dogs” to those veterans who are at risk of self harm. Barry advised that 95 suicides took place last year and care dogs provide companionship and warning of impending disaster. The dogs require intensive training and veterinary care throughout their life and the project being promoted by Barry is called “Vets for Vets”. The club Board has agreed to donate $1000 towards dog training and/or the “Vets for Vets” program.

Sunday 24 June will be our Changeover Lunch at the Glenelg Golf Club, 12.00 for 12.30pm. Cost is $45.00 per person and your RSVP is required by Tuesday 19 June. As with all Changeovers, we will recognize the many achievements of President Rob and his Board over the past year and welcome in as President for the next Rotary year, Bill Rawlins who will introduce his team.

On 15 May, as well as Barry Heffernan, we were privileged to hear from one of our newer members, Wayne Leaves. Wayne spoke about some of his activities during his life in Australia and New Zealand. He is very keen to contribute to the community through Rotary and has become involved in a number of projects so far. We look forward to a long term association with Wayne.

Quiz Night Our annual Quiz Night on Friday 25 May was a HUGE success thanks to the organisation of Marianne and her team and the support of members and friends. A total of almost $6000 was raised on the night; a figure to be justifiably proud of.

Christmas Raffle Prizes Wayne Leaves is currently working on obtaining donated prizes for our annual raffle. It was agreed at Board level that we would revise this year’s raffle in two major ways. 1.

Prizes on offer are to be obtained at no cost to the Club to minimise financial risk We have already had the major prize donated, a week’s stay for two people at Mildura. Wayne needs your help in getting more “travel related” prizes to fill a substantial prize list.


Most tickets will be offered to local community groups to sell and then keep the entire pro ceeds of their sales. Tickets sold by members will cover the cost of running the raffle (licence, ticket printing). Any surplus will go into our Pro ject account
