                                                 PRESIDENTS MESSAGE.
Well Hello everyone from your New President.
As this is my first meeting as President, l will be finding my feet and treading a new path for myself and our club, the direction will be to hopefully start a satellite club, a Rotaract club with the cluster group and make this year a social and enjoyable year, our directors all have a great team to support them and spreading the load will make it easier for all ,l will be going to other Rotary club meetings and also going to learning seminars and conferences.
PLEASE NOTE. If anyone needs to contact me during work hours, please SMS or email me ONLY, l does not answer my mobile, or discus Rotary business while l am with a client, leave a message and l will contact you as soon as l can, thank you for your understanding.
I hope you all have a great year, l will be doing my best, and thank you for your support.
I will also be logging in Attendances and work hours for our members for the next 12 months, if you do anything related to Rotary please let me no how long you did it for, this will give Rotary an indication of how many hours our club has done combined. And remember if you want anything added to the Bulletin, please email it to me bye Saturday at the latest.
 President Peter has organized The satellite meeting at our club for the 16th August, guest speakers for the evening will be Mark Humphrey’s and possibly Merv Williams (still to confirm), Rosebud /Rye President Brian Allen will be attending, as well as interested guests.
President Peter went to Rosebud/Rye for there meeting on Wednesday night, they had a club night, so l sat in to hear what they did, l learnt that there were 400 homeless people, living in cars and on the street in an area from Dromana to Sorrento, very disturbing, they donated money straight away to help the situation. They discussed their board and what they were going to do to help in all areas of Rotary, especially with youth programs, l enjoyed the evening and they made me feel most welcome.
 We are all in this together—and together, we will Be the Inspiration. (A quote from Barry Rassin ).
                         BE THE INSPIRATION.



Chairman for the night was Merv Prossor.
Invocation was done by Harry
To the Queen, Rotarians and family and those volunteering locally, nationally and globally, we drink to your health. Please raise your glass.
 Thank you everyone for your attendance tonight, as this is my first meeting as president, l will do my best, l have been very busy this week in setting my goals for the club, and so far everything is going very well.
Chris booth and myself went to Mornington to organize the car raffle, we had a positive response from both Mornington Toyota and Mornington Mazda, we feel we are looking around $17 to $18 thousand for either a Mazda 2 or a Toyota Yaris, they will give us a final price in the next few days, then we will discuss with the board , then members to see if we are going to run with it, we will be selling tickets inside the IGA complex, not outside this year, Toyota said they might be interested in paying for the tickets, and Mazda said we could have a BBQ there on their M DAY and sell sausages for a gold coin donation, they provide everything, so whatever we make is profit.
There has been some talk between Tony, David, myself and others regarding a BBQ trailer, l have had a chat with Alyce from Bunnings and told her we need a 6 burner BBQ and 2 large eski’s to be fitted to the trailer, Alyce said Bunning’s would be glad to support us, so all we need to do is see if Zen our trailer man will make what we need and for what cost. I am hoping that with Bunnings supplying what we need, Zen possibly making it for cost, that Hill view Quarries’ and Bendigo Bank will cover all costs, that way Rotary has paid nothing, in return, we will be advertising them on all 4 sides of the trailer at every event it goes to. I found one on EBAY for $3,000 but it didn’t’ fit our requirements, Brooks trailers on Boneo rd. was out of our price range and not covered.
Another project I’ve been working on is advertising in our Bulletin, this is to cover the cost of our club runner magazines, so far l have 8 confirmed ad’s and 2 others have said yes but haven’t provided a card for the add, l will be meeting with Rick next week to put these in the Bulletin, this will give us $500.00
Secretary Chris spoke about all incoming mail he received, and a thank you from Libby Wilson for President Peter’s attendance at Rosebud/Rye’s Meeting on Wednesday.
Director Tony spoke about the new Market proposal, as objections finished last week,  we should have  a better knowledge of how it is going, great job Tony, A lot of work has gone into this.
Director Rick handed out a form for members to fill in about Guest speaker preferences to assist Greg with getting people the members might be interested in hearing from.
Don’t forget August is MEMBERSHIP MONTH..
We all need to help Harry our Membership Director to increase our membership, not only this month but every month, if you have a friend or someone you know that might be interested in coming to our club, remember their visit is free, they have nothing to lose, but hopefully a lot to gain, and we might even get a new member.

1. Community & Fundraising Update
I appreciate the opportunity to take a lead on the Community and Fundraising (C&F) projects for the upcoming year and I look forward to developing a "Inclusive Structure” that takes advantage of the skills and knowledge of the broader club membership base. 
Discussions are yet to be held with all members that have been allocated a position on the "C&F Implementation Group” and I look forward to discussing the way forward with team members over the next fortnight. 
At this point, planning for the year has commenced with the C&F group being separated into two teams to help us focus on the activities that the team is to lead.  It is expected that there will be cross-pollination between the groups on specific project and I am thankful that Mike Smith and Col Byatt have taken on the Chairperson role for Sub Committee A & Sub Committee B respectfully as their experience will be a great asset in helping to manage the outcomes.    
I look forward working with such a capable group of people to achieve the clubs targets and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
2. Community Market Update
Objections against the Community Market project had to be submitted to Council by C.o.B. on Thursday 5 July and Council will review the objections. 
It is understood that the council will make a decision on either to advise the objectors that the decision is in favour of the market, or alternatively that there will be a Public Information Session held on the market proposal. The club would be involved in this process. Once this phase is complete it then moves into the approval phase and signing off on terms and conditions of use of the Park for the market. 
Immediate requirement is to commence developing the Market website etc. in reparation for commencement. 
Further information will be provided when it comes to hand
