The meeting was held on Zoom. The guest speaker was our Market Manager Ron Brownlees.
Ron explained in detail the protocols we have to follow when the market reopens. This is to ensure that we are compliant with the rules and regulations set out by the government as a result of the Covid pandemic. A copy of all the protocols will be available in the market office when it reopens. A special thanks go to Ron who has put in an amazing amount of time and effort in this endeavour.
President Helen welcomed members. She informed us of the passing of Stewart McDonald of the Rotary Club of Healsville. Stewart was the chair of Rotary Youth Exchange for about 30 years and many of the exchange students are indebted to him for their youth exchange experience. 
Helen also gave notice to club members about the impending vote for the following donations. 
$5,000 to Australian Rotary Health for Indigenous scholarship.
$10,000 for Rotary Foundation as our annual donation.
Last but not least, Helen invited all members to join in “The Sale of the Century” quiz night on Friday 20 August at 7.30 pm.
There was a Sergeant’s session and members will be reminded of their fines when we are able to meet again face to face.
Here are some pics from the morning.
