President's Message

June is Rotary Fellowships month. What are Rotary Fellowships: Rotary Fellowships are international groups that share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world, explore a hobby or profession, and enhance your Rotary experience. So why not join a Rotary Fellowship?

Again I remind you that our club changeover meeting will be held online on Sunday 8 July 2018 at 12.30pm. I hope you will all logon. Details have already been sent out but a reminder will be sent closer to the time.


The District Changeover will be held on Sunday 17 July 2018 in Traralgon. If you are interested in attending please contact Brian N. at We hope to get a club table together for this event.  The table already has six members on it! We can fit more on.


I hope you all have a good week.

President 2017-18


This week's meeting material 
Join a Rotary Fellowship 
Like President Deanne I encourage you to join a Rotary Fellowship. I am already a member of the Railroads Fellowship and the Past District Governors Fellowship. Go to this link for more information. I recommend that you don't try to join the EClub Fellowship as the site seems to be inactive. I am investigating.
Hiding in plain sight - My life as an undocumented American  - Leezia Dhalla -This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. An executive communications specialist at Rackspace Hosting, Leezia oversees the company's speaker’s bureau for the Americas region. She is a first-generation American, of African and Indian descent, who immigrated to Texas from Canada in 1996. Leezia's interest in writing and foreign affairs led her to Northwestern University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and political science. Leezia is also the weekend cops reporter for the San Antonio Express-News and serves as secretary of the SA2020 Commission on Education. As a news reporter, her work has been published in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and the San Antonio Express-News, among other media. In April 2014, Leezia’s research with Northwestern University’s Medill Innocence Project, a journalism think tank that investigates cases of potentially wrongful convictions, contributed to the release of an inmate who spent nine years incarcerated in an Illinois prison. Her work helped Medill to win the Investigative Reporters & Editors Award and the Peter Lisagor Award for best online feature story.
