                                 THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SPONSORS.
Great Start to the first ever Rotary community Market developed and organized by Tony Viney and his steering commity, l know all members are grateful for the work and effort Tony has put into this project, and as Presidant l am extremally honoured and proud to have him as a member of our club as l am with all the members of Dromana Rotary,  they all chipped in with the Market and the Election day BBq at the Dromana Primary School, we also had Honorary members Geoff Hosking and Tyrrell and Maggie McGeever help out on the day.
Cost will be $30.00 per head, Rick has allowed us to use the club account to subsidise the rest, we will also be providing our own fruit platters on the night but remember drinks will be at bar/venue prices paid for by yourselves.
RSVP and ALLERGIES and PAYMENT to Mary or Peter by the 29th Nov at the AGM, thank you, Peter
Hope to see our Honorary member's and their partners on the night.
We are all in this together—and together, we will Be the Inspiration. (A quote from Barry Rassin ).

Hi everyone, Dromana Community Market and Guest Speaker Pics bellow at the bottom, please enjoy.
Meeting was opened by Seagent Murrey
President Peter welcomed guests and did apologies.
Secretary Chris spoke about all correspondence and handed Treasurer Rick all bills and receipts, Chris also mentioned about a BBQ request that Peter had received from the Dromana Primary School, they needed our help on Wednesday the 5th Dec from 3.30 till about 6.30ish, Peter has 4 members to help on the day. Chris has also been dealing with all our insurance issues, lot of work to get it all ready in time, but all ok.
Fundraising Director Tony has been working long hours to with his steering committee and others to organise stall holder, reply to their questions etc, he has a good number of stall holders for the first one with a over 70 expressions of interest, a number of these will become stall holders. Tony and Michael will be going to the site on Friday to do a trial run of all the signs and banners. Some stallholders are asking for power, so Peter bought a new 9 kva generator for one stallholder to use and David Buchanan will hopefully supply a few more for the others.
Pres Pete asked Tony to write up a flyer to give to the neighbours directly opposite the Market site explaining that we are going to do something about the noise issue with generators, this noise issue will be temporary until the shire installs power outlets that Tony has requested and looks like they have approved, another great job done by Tony.
Pres Pete and Tony have organised the Election day BBQ at the Primary School, Peter has spoken to Principal Bruce Messley about getting into the school to set up our BBQ Trailer under cover, we have a number of members doing the shifts and hope everything goes to plan, with all the pre voting we hope we will still sell a lot of egg and bacon rolls and snags, but we always have AGM to use what’s left over.
UPDATE ON BBQ. Due to a lot of pre voting the numbers were down this time in sales, this could be a sign of the times with elections and stock for next years Federal election.thanks to all those that helped out with both events.
UPDATE ON MARKET. There was a great turn out for the fist Market with Tony and Mark getting about 22 stall, the weather was wet for the Market ,but good feed back was received by Members, Tony has sent an email out to members to get there feedback for the next Market in December.
Director Harry has asked if we could help with a BBQ in Frankston, he needs only a few members and its on Wednesday the 12th Dec, please speak to Harry if your interested, Harry and Peter are helping so far.
LOTTO was won by Rick.
Fine session went well and quickly.
