Florian Wertenauer inducted

Our meeting on Monday was highlighted by the induction of Dr Florian Wertenauer, who was accompanied by his wife, Alison. Florian comes to us with a strong knowledge of Rotary, having been an Ambassadorial Scholar in Canberra for nine months in 2002 (when he met his future wife, Alison). Fortunately for Australia and for us, Alison and Florian chose to make Canberra their home. Florian has a very impressive CV and aslo has a wife range of talents, including in music, sport and community involvement. Florian is currently the Staff Specialist Psychiatrist at City Mental Health Unit and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, and so will hold the classification of Mental Health and belong to the Community Service Group. Welcome Florian, and we look forward to your involvement and input with our Club. (Florian is pictured above, on his induction, with President Jeff Bradley)

October is Vocational Service Month in Rotary, and Vocational Director Govert Mellink has been handling the nominations for Vocational Service Awards. We hope to be able to present these when recipients can be lined up to attend our Club meeting.

Members are reminded that this coming Friday is World Polio Day. Hopefully there will be further publicity and enhanced community awareness of our wonderful Rotary initiative on that day.

Members are also reminded that our major community initiative, Seniors Concert, is coming up in a month's time. The organising committe is now into full operating mode, and will be contacting you shortly to discuss your involvement.

Another reminder to all members to please consider registering for the District Conference in Canberra from 14 to 16 November. This promises to be a wonderful event, and given the absence of any accommodation costs for our members, we should be aiming for a strong attendance from our Club. New members do not pay any Conference fee (apart from any function costs).

Finally, a note re the upcoming Club meeting. Our guest speaker is Professor Chris Baggoley AO whose topic is "Australia's response to Emerging Infectious Disease". Given the ebola crisis at present, this should be a "must attend" event.

- President Jeff
