President's Message

Welcome to Meeting No.100

Hi everyone,


Amazing to think that this is Meeting 100!  Bravo to Brian for all these club meetings.  Did you know that Brian puts together the club meeting and tries to keep the content to 20-30 minutes of reading and watching?  Brian and I are both keen for other members to contribute to the meeting content, the same as you would at a traditional Rotary Club.   When the regular papers like the Herald-Sun and Courier Mail all seem to be full of doom and gloom, we have a chance through our weekly meeting to provide a positive spin on the news.  Okay, sometimes there is a sad story to be told, but generally there is a great story of struggling through adversity.  So can I encourage you all to contribute.  Why not pick one Wednesday of the month and calenderise it as a day to find something interesting to forward the link to Brian?


Since this is Meeting 100 and I was thinking about what 100 means to Rotary the Centurion club occurred to me. In our club Ian Sayers is responsible for the Centurion club and we have several Centurions in our club.  I appreciate that not everyone is the in the position to taken on the Centurion challenge but it time for me to get off my backside and put it into action. Taking up the Centurion challenge will mean collecting 100 of the $1 coins and donating it to the Rotary Foundation.  I am going to collect $1 each day, which means come Meeting 115 I should be telling you that I have become a Centurion and made my donation.  So I pledge to become a Centurion by Meeting 115 – and please hold me to it J  If anybody else wants to join in this 100 day challenge, comment on Facebook or let me know.  What a way to celebrate our Meeting 100!  Now I just need to Ian to confirm whether it is 100 AUD or 100USD …


Yours in Rotary,


Deanne S.
