Anne Brown President of the Yarra Bend RC, pictured above with acting President Rob Simpson,  distributed prize money to the winners of the Calcutta held on Oaks Eve at the Auburn Bowls Club. In a very much appreciated gesture Anne also passed  over a cheque to the Canterbury Rotary Club being the profits from the terrific social evening which the Yarra Bend hosted on the night.
As mentioned Rob  was acting President on Monday evening as Lili-Ann was away on a short holiday. A number of matters were raised;
  • Doug Hawley advised that he attended LaTrobe University to hear the presentations by the graduating students who were part of this year's Philippines Eye and Ear Mission to the Philippines. He was very impressed by the quality of the presentations and the glowing reports of their experiences of being part of the Mission to the Philippines.
  • Rob Simpson again called for volunteers to assist with the Maling Road Kriskrindl on Friday 6 December.
  • John Braine  asked members if available to assist with the loading and transport of DIK material. Please contact Lauire Fisher on 0428550574 if you can assist.
  • Please see the flier below for the Club Xmas part being held on Monday 16 December at President Lili-Ann's home in Balwyn.
  • Fabrienne Nichola from the Camberwell RC joined us and spoke about the film Homeland Story being shown at the Balwyn cinema on  Thursday 5 December. Please see the flier below.
