Message from our President

As I write our Change Over Dinner is set to proceed this Saturday night at the Bentleigh Club, thanks to Helen, Linda and Margaret for all the time you have put in to organising the event under very trying circumstances.
Of course the change over itself is cause for reflection on the past and excitement about the future.
There is no way I can adequately express my feelings about my time as the President of the RCBMC in a few words in the bulletin so that will come later. For now I want to say thank you to every club member and in particular all the board members I have served with over the past two years. It has had its challenges for sure but then again Rotarians are always up for a challenge aren’t they! See you Saturday night.
 See you in the morning on Zoom. Meeting starts at 7.30 but Zoom meeting starts at 7.15. Meeting details here.

Please check details of each week's meeting here or elsewhere in this Bulletin to confirm venue. You are very welcome to join us.
This notice was meant to go in last week's Bulletin and I apologise for it's omission. Members will be saddened to hear of the passing of Jill Richards, wife of past District Governor Bob Richards(2006-7). Jill has been battling illness for some time. IanB
