Welcome to Meeting No. 153 of the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38 

President's Message


Thanks you all for attending the general meeting of the club on 24 September 2018. It was a good event and the subject matter was very informative if not a little disturbing. It’s great to see everyone mastering the technology; it’s the life blood of the club really. I encourage you all to login again on 22 October 2018 when we will hear from Vivienne Armstrong about Australian Rotary Health.

It is also good news that we have a candidate for the RYLA weekend on 19-21 October at Trafalgar. The nominee is a South Sudanese student making a new life in Australia with her family. We wish her well for the weekend and look forward to her report to us afterwards. Her name is Grace. If you wish to contribute towards the cost go to our Go Fund Me page

Have a good week

Brian Norris
