President Usha's Notes

14 October 2020


Dear fellows,

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”

Sausage sizzle
This was on wonderful display at our weekend Bunning's sausage sizzle. Many thanks to our Community Service Director PP Allan Teale and his team for accepting the offer at such a short notice and making it not only a successful fundraiser but a very pleasant outdoor event this year. I am most thankful to members who were so willing to give many hours of their valuable time on a Sunday to be there in the service of the community. Read more in the Bulletin (click).

Last week's guest speaker
Last week, we heard from a young women Danijela Prahovic who demonstrated incredible entrepreneurship in starting her business from scratch and building it up step by step into where it stands today. Read more in the Bulletin (click).

Board meeting
The monthly Board meeting was held on Monday this week and many important matters came up for discussion:

  • It was unanimously agreed that the current format of alternate meetings will continue to the end of the year and reviewed at the start of the New Year;

  • Our club will now be signing a sister club agreement with the club of Fusagasuga, Colombia. 

Sister clubs

Rotary International defines sister clubs as clubs from two different countries that form a long term relationship to promote international understanding and good will and carry out service projects in their communities. When looking for a partner, consider clubs that:

  • share similar interests, challenges or history;

  • you've worked with in the past;

  • are located in a place that matches your club's service interests; and

  • speak a common language.

This week's meeting
Our upcoming meeting this week is jam-packed with interesting features:

  • We get an update on the catering/hospitality/events industry from the managing director of Forte Catering and Events, Ross Mitchell. This company along with sister company, Nosh Hospitality Personnel, has become one of Australia’s most successful catering companies. This is a great opportunity for our members to hear first hand and ask questions from our regular caterers at meetings.

  • October is also the month to discuss and fundraise for mental health issues. This meeting, we are also hosting the "Hat Day" to support Australian Rotary Health. All funds raised on the day go towards research helping the one in five Australians affected by depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and many other illnesses.

  • This is a partner's night and I hope to see many members and partners don their favourite hats for the evening. With talks, hats and many prizes to go, we look forward to a great time. Just a reminder that booking (click) is essential.

Look forward to seeing all members and partners with friends on the evening.

Usha Garg
