Latest Meetings
Here we were at 7:30 pm sitting very comfortably at home looking at each other through the magic of Zoom and amongst us were two visitors Richard Buhrer and Alex Zahnd, our two guest speakers meeting with us in Switzerland. It would have been 5:30 am and as they said while were in the dark in the evening, it was still dark in the morning. As was mentioned the magic of Zoom! Kevin D hosted the meeting and while welcomed our special guests, he also welcomed President Ian Kirkwood and   PP wife, Faye, Dora, Sophie and PP Merv from the Rotary Club of Caulfield. President Geoff also welcomed us all and thanked Richard and Alex for their time. He announced how pleased he was for the lifting of restrictions so we can be starting the market on Sunday. He reminded us that plans for familiarization of the market rules will start on Saturday. He reminded us that will be doing somethings that we have not done before but we need to make sure we are following COVID rules, and more than likely we are better to err on the side of caution.
There was an air of a little bit of light heartedness and hope as we enter into a new phase of life in Victoria. The shops and beauty, hairdressing and more freedom to all of us is happening or about to happen. There is positive talk about the market re-opening and there is talk of mini-meetings face-to-face. WOW! Well done us. This was re-iterated by Pres. Geoff as he addressed us on his way to the country. We have more scope with what we can and cannot do. He continued by reminding us to follow all the rules and be observant of the guide lines and look at more positive ways of moving forward.
It was once again a wonderful morning and for those members who logged in earlier than 7:30 we had cheery fellowship with talk of how to get together in groups in parks so we can have friendly face-to –face time. The date of 13th December arose as a possible time to have our annual Christmas gathering. We were already 20 members at 7:30. Our speakers this morning were Edward Tudor, Executive Director and Paul Barcham Development Manager of MITS, Melbourne Indigenous Transition School. Pres. Geoff managed to log in to us while driving to work. He welcomed Ed and Paul and stated that we honor our partnership with the important work that MITS was achieving.
It was a beautiful morning and we were all gathered to listen to our Paul Ferguson who is the CEO of Moorabbin Airport. Pres. Geoff gave us a brief good morning greeting while on his way to work. He welcomed Tim L back and as we all do wished him a speedy recovery from his disastrous road accident and welcome our AG Heather Chisolm to the meeting. He explained that his introduction in the bulletin is short because there was not a lot happening and like the rest of us looking forward to some sort of change although not to expect too much.
The wonderful things about Zoom meetings in the morning are firstly that one can get up dressed for the day but do not have to hurry to be somewhere else, secondly we can perhaps enjoy the early morning freshness without the “hurry” stress and thirdly, best of all, that we can have visitors us from far-off places such as our Guest Speaker Rotarian Delia Rothnie-Jones from the Rotary Club of Savusavu, Fiji. We also welcomed Kevin Berry, friend of Geoff Gartly. Kevin is a builder who was involved with their Venturer Scout group who were involved in putting together a playground for the Batibalavu School.
What fun! How much fun was it on Wednesday September 31th evening, a glass or two of wine, 2 very enthusiastic and passionate Guest Speakers and many members with apologies from Peter L and John L. and appearances from Leonie R and Angie G. Welcome Terry! We have not seen Terry for a while as she has to work long hours from home and lives a long way from us. Pres. Geoff welcomed us all including Vishal, Angie and Leonie and Karin who at last has a camera and therefore can be seen.
Happy Birthday Helen, Ian’s Partner. By 7:30 there were already 23 participants who included Sossi, Tony Fitzlapp, Rotarian Merv from RC Caulfield and our Tim M who is not able to join us often due to his children’s commitment. Pres. Geoff welcomed us all and made mention that we were having a very, very busy day due to our meeting, 7;30 in the morning and then again 7:30 in the evening.
