Last Week's Meeting - 9 September 2019

There is an opportunity to attend a dinner in Ballarat with the Rotary International President on 24 September. Please see  Lili-Ann if you would like to attend.
Ted Waghorne has  a number of donated boxed of toilettes which he would like  to distribute to women who could benefit and appreciate  a small gift. Please see Ted or Lili-Ann if you have any suggestions about how best to distribute the boxes.
Finally Lili-Ann is looking for one or more volunteers to be the "Onto Conference Coordinator" for next year's District Conference in Bendigo  on 27 - 29 March 2020.
Last Week's Meeting - Trivia Night
Tash Facci and Austin King took on the role as MC's for our trivia quiz and did a great job.
Karin and Rob Simpson had prepared a  number of very difficult set of questions covering topics including geography, national drinks of countries, general  knowledge and matching pictures to film titles. Tables competed against each other for prizes of bags of chocolates. The competition was robust, some answers would have been referred to the independent judge, but there was no such  person and some people seemed to have an awesome knowledge of the national drinks of very obscure countries (they must have done a lot of overseas travel and possibly drinking!).
We were also very fortunate to be entertained by Helen Schiele who did some great impersonations which linked in with the quiz topic of drinking  habits of counties around the world.
It was a great warm up for those members and friends who later headed off to be part of the audience at the Q&A program.
Next Week's Speaker - Bryan Wood
Bryan Wood has achieved the ultimate in his sporting career, becoming a four time, premiership player for two clubs, Richmond 1973, 1974, 1980 and Essendon in 1985. He was appointed captain of Richmond in 1981 and was inducted in the Richmond Hall of Fame in 2006.

Bryan played on the wing throughout his career. He started his senior career in great fashion by winning the Best First Year Player award, in 1972. He then developed into one of the best wingman in the VFL in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  Bryan was a fine high mark and long penetrating kick. At 22 years of age, he became the youngest Richmond player to reach the 100-game milestone in 1976. 

In 1981, he captained Richmond and was awarded Life Membership.  Bryan also represented Victoria on two occasions. His moved to Essendon in 1983  and the move was successful as he added his fourth senior Premiership win to his list of honours in 1985. He later worked as an “around-the-ground” man for Radio 3AW, after retiring as a player. He was Kevin Sheedy’s runner at Essendon for several years. He now lives in Burwood, and works in the graphic printing industry.
To keep the footy final's theme going please come along to the meeting in your footy colours.
Police Mentoring Program
We are looking for mentors for the 2019-20 cohort of senior police sergeants.  Senior sergeants manage around 70% of the VicPol workforce.  In summary, the objective of Leaders Mentoring program is to:
  • Develop leadership skills in a community service setting
  • Build community partnerships, managing stakeholder relationships and building networks
  • Apply business management approaches to community service planning and delivery
The mentees are expected to develop a community engagement project during the program, which is where Rotarian experience is invaluable.
Mentors need:
  • sound knowledge of how Rotary is managed at Club and District level
  • current or recent business management experience
  • sufficient time to commit to the program – it starts with a mentor briefing on 7th October and there are a few ‘touch points’ with the Steering Committee through the year.
  • been personally involved in meaningful community engagement programs or projects
  • the endorsement of their Club President and the support of their club
Applications are due by September 16th. 
A mentor guidelines document and an application form are available from Rosemary Waghorne or Steve Wylie who are happy to answer any queries and forward the forms to anyone who is interested.

Restoring Hope Golf Day
Restoring Hope is a Melbourne based charity that helps young people who have been sexually abused.  They are holding a fund raising golf day at the RACV Golf Club in Healsville on the 10 November.  
The mission at Restoring Hope is to distribute Crisis Care Packs and Comfort Care Packs to young people who have been abused.  Typically a child would receive these items at a police station or trauma hospital.  The Packs provide new clothes (necessary for when the police remove clothing for forensic testing), toiletries, a blanket, a colouring book, pencils and a “Hope” teddy bear. The aim is to use this simple act to bring some comfort and a sense of normality to a life that has been turned upside down, and restore a sense of dignity and hope at a time when it is needed most. The details about the golf day and how to book are at the Restoring Hope  website at:
