July – The Start of a New Rotary Year Congratulations to all outgoing Presidents on the successful completion of your Rotary Year and Best Wishes to all incoming Presidents as we commence a year of Rotary: Making a Difference.
Pres. Bryan & Rtns. Noel L & Graeme reported on the Changeovers they have attended within the Goldfields Cluster as well as the DG’s Changeover when the District celebrated Neville & Rebecca’s year and welcomed Peter & Anne.
Congratulations to all, Rotarians & friends who have been honoured by their clubs by being named as Paul Harris Fellows. Noel & Robyn were thrilled to be present at Echuca Moama’s Changeover when Gwen Barrett was named as a Paul Harris Fellow.
FARSE: Planning continues and Sec. Heather was pleased to announce that 21 exhibitors have committed to this year’s event while she is still negotiating with several others. It is possible that we will have a total of 35 exhibitors, the largest number since the inaugural event 19 years ago. Amongst the new exhibitors is the local business “Splash & Learn” which is known for its promotion of water safety. Heather is still investigating the provision of the Rotary Logo & Club name on the new gazebos.
Guest Speaker: Jenny Turner, Community Planner, Shire of Campaspe informed members of her role within the Shire and discussed ways in which she is able to assist community groups. Of interest was the way in which the Court House may be better utilised through the activation of space.
