Thank you to all our sponsors, you are welcome to come as guests to our club, just contact Pres Peter and he will arrange it for you, you are more than welcome.
Hi Everyone,
Please disregard the Chairman and GIG duties for the next 2 weeks, thankyou
            At This week’s meeting we had 5 guest speakers, Vivian Armstrong and 2 of her friends all spoke about Elder abuse and other related topics and we also had the 2 students from RYPEN, it was a great night, we got through all 5 speakers, director reports, member reports and also fine and loto session and still finished by 8.00.
            Next week there is no meeting due to a social night at Pig and Whistle Main Ridge, time is 6 for 6.30 start, and please remember there is no meeting on Anzac day.
            Next meeting is on the 2nd May, we have visiting guests from Mt Martha, the Assistant DG is coming to our club with a couple of his members to meet some of our members and catch up with what we are up to ETC.
          Thanks Rick for emptying the spinner, 36kg of coins would of been heavy to load to your car, and welcome back.
 Pres Pete also contacted John Barnes to see how he was going, he said he was on the improve and was missing Rotary.
l also contacted Rod Troatbeck he is currently having treatment and sounded positive, great to speak to them both.
l payed a visit to Tyrrell MgGeever a past member who has been in hospital having back sergery, he has lost 17kg and is very unstable with his movement at the moment, but feels a lot better in his back, so overall it was all fairly positive with all 3 guys, we wish them all well and look forward to seeing them again,take care all.
Late News-- Adrian and Roger are doing a sign to go on the raffle card table and other spots saying what Rotary is about and what we do, great idea guys, people still don't no what we are about, so might help and also get new members.
Also a new guest who's looking to join, Robert Clarke, spoke to me after Rotary and said he was going in for heart sergery, we wish him all the best,
We are all in this together—and together, we will Be the Inspiration. (A quote from Barry Rassin ).
                  BE THE INSPIRATION.
