This week our District Governor Ross Butterworth and his wife Annette are visiting the club. This is one night in the year when we need full attendance of members and Partners. So please attend.
Last Week : Was our visit to the Bank Restaurant Yarraville and they certainly pulled out the stops to provide us with an excellent menu for $30. (See Below). But our attendance was disappointing as only 14 attended and no partners came. Despite the fairly expensive wine list it was a great night particularly when Bobby Bright took the stage .
Many of us bought Bobby’s new CD that is being premiered next month.
Last week Mario Vella’s father passed away and the funeral is being held tomorrow at 1:30 at Queen St Altona Meadows and President Kevin will represent the Club. Other members would also be welcome.
Thursday 24th October is World Polio Day and while Rotary, the WHO,UNICEF and the United States Centre of Disease Control have immunised over two billion children, many times in very difficult circumstances, the result is that today only two countries remain endemic, Afghanistan and Pakistan. India has been declared polio free, and this dreaded virus now stalks only limited areas of Nigeria. Our club has been asked for a further contribution that will be matched 2 for 1 by the Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation.
Pink Breakfast This is one of our major fund raisers and if you have not registered please do so with PP Faye. RSVP 21st October. All hands will be required on deck to assist the Royal Yacht Club and our Sub-Committee with setting up on 28th and clearing up on 29th October. (See Brochure below)
