President's Message

Hello everyone,
Wow what a mixed bag to the start of spring.  Bushfire in NSW, cold and wet in Victoria yet East Gippsland is really dry and looking like it will go into summer early.  Hopefully Ian has enjoyed some warmth holidaying in Queensland and away from the extended Canberra winter.
Do you ever read the emails from Rotary International? I know at first glance they can sometimes look like a promotional email that you don’t have time to read, but I challenge you to go one step further and open them for at least a quick glance. This week I saw the link about ‘Rotary Ideas’ a crowdsourcing platform for projects.  As a club without a traditional fundraising base I think we really should explore this option further to connect with other clubs that have funds earmarked for projects but aren’t able to run the project themselves. Have a look and let me know what you think via email or on our Facebook page so we can explore this further as a club (See also below)
