Engaging Friends ... Changing venues, distance... one spirit!

Dear Friends,

It's been a while since my last update... Easter is upon us. this means different things to many of us... be it the that winter is near, celebrating the sacrifice of Christ, time with family and friends, spring is in the air - for those in the northern hemishpere... what ever it is, and how ever you are celebrting... please make the most of the time ahead.

As you can see, our friends in Europe, seem not to have changed... a joyful reunion we must conclude. thank you PE Jeff for sharing ... albeit at 4:30AM on a non silenced phone... I had to get up early... but not that early...

We won't be meeting this Monday due to Easter Monday, I would like to draw your attention to a few items nevertheless. 

Please consider registring for the District Assembly in Bega, it's always good to learn from other clubs that deal with similar issues and have solved them innovatively.

RIAC is going ahead and it looks like we will have a splendid program on offer, including a great guest speaker on the day. Cloe Munro of the Clean energy Regulator. 

Speaking of Speakers ... on the 19th of May we will receive Peter Varghese the Secretary for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

But before then, Food and bio security is on our agenda... Mr. Les Baxter will be speaking to us.

Register quickly and bring a friend that may wish to learn more and see what our club is like. 

Happy Easter, have a great Rotary week (or two).
