Message from our President

As we slowly emerge from the grasp of Covid I think it is crucial for our committees to reach out to those that our club have supported in the past, see what the need, investigate how the people and families they support have fared over the past 12 months, my feeling is that the answer will be “not well”.
Evidence in the media and gained through general dialogue throughout the community strongly suggests that the cost of this virus is wide spread and deep seated so please ensure that your committees are considering a wide variety of projects.
I hope to see as many of us as possible at breakfast this week to be held at – Virginia Park Café  262 East Boundary Road ,East Bentleigh, 7.00am for 7.10 (venue details here) and don’t forget to Ron Brownlees email regarding pre-ordering your meal.
