Last Week's Meeting - 20 April 2020
Last Monday the Club held its second online Club meeting using the Zoom app. There were more than 30 members who joined the meeting - a fantastic effort.
The night held special significance as it was the celebration of the Club's 33rd anniversary of its being chartered in 1987. Helen Hartnett gave a us a short history of the Club's beginnings, developments and achievements over the years. We also had a short video in part using footage from the event at Box Hill Golf Club where the Club held its 30th anniversary celebrations.
We had an online quiz session where Cathie Macmillan asked very challenging questions focusing on potatoes, bees and the Philippines. Tony Laycock took out the prize with an unbelievable score of 7 correct answers.
Other matters of interest included:
  • Peter Stewart, a dentist in Kew, member of the Kew Rotary Club  and friend of Kyle Wightman, has very generously donated dental equipment which the Club will arrange to be shipped to the Philippines  - thank you Peter
  • Plans are progressing for the Club to hold its waggle dance on World bee day on 20 May. This will now be an online event and our Club will link up with events held around the world to celebrate bee day
  • The Club hopes to continue to hold weekly online Club meetings. Members with any ideas about topics and meeting agenda should email these through to John Braine at
Donations to the Club
Doug Hawley announced during our on-line meeting that the Club had received two very generous donations.
The Club has a facility setup through Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS)  where tax deductible donations can be  made.
One donation of $30000 will be used for the Club's FORaMEAL project and the second donation of $19000 will be used for the Philippines Eye and Ear Project.
These donations, both from the same generous family, are very significant and hugely appreciated and will enable these projects to go from strength to strength.
Anzac Day Commemoration
People standing on driveway at dawn commemorating
There is a move to commemorate ANZAC day by being in your driveway at 5.56am on Saturday 25 April holding a candle or playing an instrument to "Light Up the Dawn". For more information go to
Members and family are encouraged  to be part of the commemoration and to take a photo or video which will be part of a montage of any of our members who do this on Saturday morning. Please send your photo or video  to Lili-Ann Kriegler at if you are up for this. 
Then,  let’s have a  zoom coffee and breakfast meeting at 6.15am to have a moment of silence and remember the departed. If you have any poppies, bring them to the Zoom breakfast. An invitation to a Zoom meeting will be emailed prior to Saturday. If anyone has family medals to show, bring those too.
Monster Mash Competition Winners
The Monster Mash Potato competition has finally been judged and won.
The judging undertaken with great integrity to Olympic standards by a panel of one judge, President Lili-Ann Kriegler, awarded the winning entries to:
Biggest potato - Rosemary and Ted Waghorne
Best potato photo - Anne Josefsberg for her koala shaped photo of her potato crop
Congratulations to everyone who participated and even if you didn't grow the biggest potato it is hoped they tasted great when they were cooked.
Isolation Entertainment
In these long days of isolation everyone needs to find even small ways to keep themselves on the up and up.
Club member David Zrna and his wife Bronwyn took advantage of the recent sunny weather by having a Tim Tan slam in the backyard. Well done.
