President’s report 20th December 2022 
Hello Fellow Rotarians,
Happy New Year to all.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New year. We had a great family time, too much food as per usual but great excitement and joy with the grand

Our year started with 42 Rotarians enjoying the traditional New Year's breakfast at Rotary Park in Mt Eliza. A very great thanks to Linda, Jim and Rhonda for
organizing and setting up the function and to all who attended.

Our first dinner meeting is on Tuesday 17th. Our guest speaker is Rob Amro CEO of Green Legacy Gardens.
A couple of points to remember. We have the DG attending our club on the 7th of February. Which would be a good opportunity to hear what is happening in our
district. Conference is on 24th to 26th February. If you intend to go, please register soon.

The board met on Wednesday for the first time this year. We discussed a number of items and look to set in place an enjoyable and effective year.

I look forward to seeing you next Tuesday, all the best to you and your family for

All the very best

In lieu of Brynton's Joke of the week - here are some New Year's Thoughts

The average age of people living in our military retirement community is 85. Recently, a neighbour turned 100, and a big birthday party was thrown. Even his son turned up. “How old are you?” a tenant asked. “I’m 81 years old,” he answered. The tenant shook her head. “They sure grow up fast, don’t they?”

I raised my left leg before the ball dropped so I could start the New Year off on the right foot.
