Good evening Rotarians and Friends of Rotary.
At our meeting next, we will be having Antonella Celi, and the Salvation Army and others to our meeting, IF YOU ARE BRINGING YOUR PARTNER OR GUEST PLEASE LET ELAINE AND/OR PETER NO FOR CATERING PURPOSES.
This week was our first meeting back at our hall, good to get back into the swing of things, Helping the community.
Good to see all Rotarians looking better after the break, a couple members have been unwell over the last couple of months and recently, and we hope they get better soon.
Secretary Elaine spoke about the Bunnings BBQ over the long weekend in March and has asked for volunteers to do 2 1/2 hour shifts, Elaine also mentioned the mens shed , and how they want a donation to purchase a new rip saw for there shed.
Director Ray, spoke about the Australia day event and how he would like as many members to attend as possible to help in setting up and also running the event.
It was also mentioned about the Trailer raffle and how it was going, we still have more tickets to sell to make more money to donate, and as we don't have the Art show any more, we need more events to make money.
We had 2 guests this week, Ross brought a lady friend and there was also a gentleman invited as well, great to see new faces.
Tonight our guest speaker was Bob Donaldson, doing THE MAN BEHIND THE BADGE.
(forgive me if l miss something as my recorder on the night failed to save.)
Bob spoke about being brought up in Western Australia for many years, were he and his family were brought up on the Hancock farm, he said in the area he was there were only 2 white children there, him and his sister.
after that he moved away and worked for Stihl he enjoyed working for them for many years and then went on to work for Honda, witch Bob also enjoyed, he was very successful working for both Stihl and Honda and then went on to try his own busines.
Bob also had a flower garden on the Peninsula, which he ran with his Wife Frieda for a while.
Bob wanted to do something and put back into the community, so he joined Rotary, he was living in Sorento at the time, but has since moved to Dromana.
Bob does a number of things as does his wife, like riding for the disabled and also driving them.
