Greetings fellow Rotarians and welcome to a brand new year. The new leadership team and I are all excited and very humbled to help steer our club over the next 12 months doing what we do best; service above self. Please join me in extending a huge thankyou to Immediate Past President Rowan Johnstone and his team for the fantastic work they did.
We will strive to continue upholding the highest of standards in all that we do.

If you didn’t make it to our first meeting under the new team on Thursday via Zoom you missed a great night but don’t worry, you can catch all the highlights by clicking on the following link

Amongst our guests was Jan Sky who gave a very informative and interactive talk about how to Break the Stress Cycle, a definite must watch if you missed it.
It was a tie for our trivia game with Glenn Wran and couples team John and Louise Davis both coming up with a perfect score! Congratulations your bottle of wine awaits you. Meanwhile, some of us have some studying to do…..

Be sure to join us for our next and last Zoom meeting on Thursday 16 July for another fun and informative evening and don’t forget our first official get together in person will be
our Change Over Dinner on Saturday 25 July starting at 6pm so be sure to clear your calendar. The official invitation has now been sent but to make life easier, please see a copy of the invitation below with a link to the Try Booking web site. 
This is a double celebration; changing over to the new team and freedom from lockdown (with restrictions of course).

Hope to see you all next Thursday 16 July on Zoom but if you would like to speak to me beforehand please feel to contact me on 0433069174 or
