Greetings Members and Rotary Friends

I hope you enjoyed our meeting last Monday. Workers’ Compensation and by extension Public Liability, it is one of those subjects that we all know a bit about but given our exposure to the public through our Community and Fund raising activities, we should know a bit more about. Thank you to Kehela Vandenberg for giving us a great overview and more importantly, volunteered to be a continual resource for Manningham Rotary.

This week we have our much-anticipated Trivia Night. If you haven’t registered, please do so. If you can round up a whole team even better. I am looking forward to a great night of fun and fellowship.

5 th-11th October is “Reconnect Rotary” week. It is a great opportunity to remind us of those who are no longer associated with our Club. It is one of the projects of the Board this year to reconnect with those who have been associated with Club in the past. This includes past Rotarians and their partners, GSE, Youth Exchange and RYLA Alumni and those we have sponsored for other Rotary programmes. Thank you, Jim McIldowney who has given me a list of past members that he is aware of and I would ask that all members who have details of those who have been associated with our Club pass them on to me. Thank you in anticipation of receiving your responses.

Thank you to Dean and Soula who are constantly making updates and improvements to our Club website. Please pass on our web and contact details to people you think might be interested. We have been able to secure some very interesting speakers and we always welcome visitors to our meetings.

As a bit of forward promotion, the speaker at our meeting on 28th September will be Ursula Callaghan. Ursula is an Irish Genealogist. She will Zoom in from Ireland and talk about tracing ancestors of Irish decent. I am sure you know someone who is tracing their family tree and has Irish ancestry and they will be most welcome at our meeting. Remember our meeting this week is 7.00 to 8.30pm – see you all then.

Stay Safe Kathy
