Last Week's Program



Our meeting of 11 June
Past President Tony Alsop was our chair for the evening.
We welcomed Anna Fletcher and we welcomed back Jonathan Hepner.
Karl from River’s Gift was our special guest and received a cheque for $6,500.00 from our Club’s recent fundraising dinner auction which will go to support research into the causes and prevention of early infant death including education in safe sleeping practices to reduce the risk.
To date, River's Gift has raised over $1.2 million.

Rotaract News
Brendan Holland on behalf of the Rotaract Club of Barwon invites members of our Club to attend the upcoming Rotaract Club Changeover.
This event will give us the opportunity to thank Michelle Conner for her year as President and wish incoming President Duncan Silcock all the best.
The event is on Saturday 29th June at 5.00 pm at Little Creatures, 221 Swanston Street, Geelong.
We can order food and drinks ordered off the menu at our own expense.
This year, the Rotaractors are aiming for a relaxed social and informal changeover event and will have a short 15 – 20 minutes of changeover formality before enjoying the vibe and atmosphere of Little Creatures.
We are encouraged to invite anyone along who might be interested in meeting the Rotaractors and joining Rotaract.

Membership fees for 2019-2020 will be set at $270.00 full fee and $245.00 with concession.
Our Club Treasurer will send out invoices to members in the early part of July so we can pay direct in the Club’s Bendigo Bank account if we wish to do so.
Vocational Visit and Pride and Professionalism Award
Members interested in attending the presentation of Pride & Professionalism Award to the Andrew Love Cancer Centre (“ALCC”), please advise Warren Norton by email ( of you intend to attend.

We then have an opportunity to speak with a number of people who work in different fields within ALCC.
