Message from our President

Thanks to everyone who put themselves forward for any of the elected positions within the club.
It is only through the active participation of all members that our club will grow, and grow we must.
Good reports from last Sunday’s market, make sure you enjoy it when you’re on duty, chat to the shoppers and stakeholders, let’s make it Melbourne’s friendliest market.
Efforts are being made for us to get together prior to Christmas however available indoor space is very scarce so we will see where we end up.
See you all Wednesday
All the best,
Geoff Gledhill
This week's meeting's speaker is Sandra Geisler, a past Rotary Youth Exchange student, currently living in Melbourne.
