Message from our President

Well, here we go again fellow members. Victoria in lockdown - and who can know for how much longer? The numbers today appear to be improving but we need to prepare to be in lockdown beyond this week. Our Club has coped quite well in lockdown and will continue to do so. Meetings can still proceed on Zoom but unfortunately our Market must close. Please keep in contact with each other and family and other friends. Many have health concerns and need our support.
Our Changeover is still planned to be going ahead on the 19th of June so i encourage you to book with Helen Nodrum as soon as possible. Likewise District Changeover is still expected top happen on the 26th.
 See you in the morning on Zoom at 7.30 although I know Ian kicks off the meeting at 7.15. Meeting details here.

Meeting this week
This week will be a Zoom meeting, details here. Unfortunately our guest speaker from Men's Shed has had to be postponed to a late date. We still hope to have a guest speaker - he or she will be a surprise guest. Also, have a look at the article below on subscribing to our Events Calendar. Have all events update directly to your phone.

Members with good memories will remember the Market Strategy Plan from 2020.
Whilst COVID has delayed most of the implementation process, some progress has been made on
the proposal to erect a sign on the rear of the Commonwealth Bank Building.
You may be wondering what happened to this proposal…well-...

In 2007, Agnes Kiraithe was invited to speak at the Rotary Club of Muthaiga, in Nairobi. At the time, Kiraithe was the chief administrator of what is now the Kenya Children’s Home, and she had come to talk about the organization, which takes in orphaned children from around the city. After her presentation, she looked around the club.
