Dear Fellow Rotarians,
“This too shall pass, so stay in touch and look out for others”. This is the title of an article written by Bianca Hall and worthy of a read in today’s Sunday Age. As the Government imposes more shutdowns to slow the spread of COVID-19 we will find new ways to communicate and continue our work in Rotary. Please see Richard’s article on meeting “virtually”. Rotary activities will be affected. As many of you would know the Farmer’s Market scheduled for Saturday was cancelled.
Over the last month the Club has been very active with well attended dinner meetings, a special BBQ on the deck, induction of Kennath George, a Board meeting, further progress on the Rotary 100 project, and a weekend of bushfire clean-up work in East Gippsland. Don Heath and Cheryl will provide a report on the EG weekend.
Report from the Board meeting
Let’s stay connected, positive and active so we can come out the other side of this unprecedented event even stronger. Stay safe and healthy.
A proposal has now been tabled that we recommence meetings virtually, using the online meeting application ZOOM. ZOOM is the virtual meeting tool used by the Rotary E-Club of Melbourne, by the various District committees and by the Board of the Rotary Club of Glenferrie.
The proposal is that, in the event that we are unable to resume regular physical club meetings in the foreseeable future, that we meet via ZOOM:

Excited by the number of potential new members at the meeting on March 10th, and stung into alternative action by the presentation on bees, I completely forgot to note who won the raffle at the last club meeting. I apologise for this inexcusable oversight and beg forgiveness. Would the person who won the raffle please email me at: Richard.firstname.lastname@example.org and own up.
The idea is to provide scholarships to individual students in the village, install services such as water, toilets, libraries etc. in the schools, and generally promote welfare of the village.
Mr Moui, the head of Education for the Ha-hoa District, has suggested to Rowan that the village of Vo Thanh is desperately in need of help and would be the ideal candidate to be the next village adopted by a club.
The board of Glenferrie Rotary has voted to adopt the village of Vo Thanh as its contribution to the project. This will be an exciting overseas project with plenty of opportunity for personal involvement of Rotarians and a rewarding experience for the whole club.
