And a message from DG Mark courtesy of the Mt Eliza Bulletin
Greetings to all members of the Rotary Club of Mt Eliza and other readers of this Bulletin.
This week, for this information of readers, I thought that I would provide some information about Rotary International's operations and offices around the world.
The World Headquarters of Rotary International are located at One Rotary Center, located in Evanston, Illinois, USA.
Rotary is a global service organization for people who share a passion for, and a commitment to, enhancing communities and improving lives both locally and around the world. Tours of the headquarters are open to Rotarians and members of the public.
Hopefully in a post COVID environment we will be able to begin travelling again and now is a good time to think about and plan a visit to RI in a couple of years time.
At One Rotary Center Rotarians can learn more about our global activities, explore interactive exhibits, and be inspired to take action.
If you visit the RI website you can take a virtual tour of One Rotary Center.
Evanston is a city in the Chicago area in the United States. Located in Cook CountyIllinois, United States, it situated on the North Shore along Lake Michigan. Evanston is 12 miles (19 km) north of Downtown Chicago, bordered by Chicago to the south, Skokie to the west, Wilmette to the north, and Lake Michigan to the east.
Incorporated in 1863, Evanston has a population of approximately 75,000 people.
Evanston is home to Northwestern University, founded before the city's incorporation in 1855, and is one of the world's leading research universities.[7]
In addition to our world HQ, Rotary has regional offices in the Phillipines, Australia (at Parramatta, NSW), India (New Delhi), South Korea (Seoul), Japan (Tokyo), Brazil (Sao Paulo) and Switzerland (Zurich).
If any Rotarian is travelling to any of these places into the future, I encourage you to consider visiting our international offices.
Until next time
Warm regards
Mark & Linda
Happenings at the last meeting
Rick opened the meeting and introduced Adrian as the Chair for this evening. He then went on to speak about the spinner at the Mornington Library, which is to be removed and possibly transferred to the cafe at the Eagle. Rick is meeting with the cafe management to discuss.
After dinner Adrian invited Secretary Bob to give his update.
Bob, as normal, spoke on a number of subjects: NYSF 2022 and it’s closing in July; the spoke on the Santos Experience which is open to years 9 and 10; the District Changeover on 27th June in Morwell; and the request we have received from Rotary in India to help with the Covid crisis.
After Lotto and fines, Mike spoke about the latest social media updates and the emphasis on promoting our new sponsors. He also extended our thanks to Roger Macmillan for all his support for the Market.
Director Tyrell spoke on Latitude 38 Projects, especially those in Cambodia and Vietnam. He put forward the opportunity for our club to participate in any, or all, of these projects. Lastly, he added his endorsement to assisting in the Indian Covid response.
Next, Director Harry announced that he would be unable to attend the District Assembly, because of a medical procedure, but suggested others attend the Sunday session via Zoom.
Lyn took the opportunity to give an update on the progress of the David Buchanan memorial.
Director Greg announced that the Market flyers are updated and available.
This weeks speaker was Andrew Haley, the Principal of Dromana Primary School. Andrew introduced himself and sketched his early life before taking up teaching. His spoke of his philosophy around teaching and showed us a number of books which have underpinned and developed that philosophy. He covered the schools at which he has worked, including two years spent at a school in Oman teaching children of the “richest of the rich”. All this informs his approach to his profession and he works with his staff to instil in them the same approach to giving the children the best education possible. Lastly, Andrew spoke of the schools future and how state governments grants have enabled the planning and future execution of new capital works.
After taking questions from the meeting, Adrian and Rick thanked Andrew and the meeting was closed at 8:20.
