President's Message - John Welsh

President’s report 28thJanuary 2023
Hello Fellow Rotarians,
I hope you all had an enjoyable Australia day. Thanks to all who helped with the function in Mt Eliza.  A special thanks to Linda for all her huge efforts to set it all up. It was a great success with all the community involvement, lots of people and wonderful coverage for Rotary.
Neil set up a notice board with information sheets with for membership, a great opportunity to explain who Rotary is
and what we do. A really positive event.

By next Tuesday meeting there will be only 10 days left to register for CONFERENCE. Being held on the Peninsula, it is a great opportunity to just pop down on the Saturday for the speakers, 9.30 start.

The cost for Saturday is $220.00 which covers the cost of morning tea, lunch and a special dinner.
Sunday breakfast’s speaker is Kevin Sheedy the cost is $40.00. If you are thinking of going, please register shortly, car pooling can also be arranged.

Last Tuesday’s speaker, Iain Buckland has talked to us before about Beleura House, once about the
car collection there and this time on his main subject the history of food and how it relates to Beleura house. Being a food guy, I found his talk very interesting, and I am going to set up a look at the kitchens with him shortly.

Next Tuesday we have Rachel and Glen Saunders,” the perils of running security business”. I hope you will be able to make it.

Thanks to all for your commitment to Rotary, I look forward to catching up with you next Tuesday.
Warm Regards,
This Week's Speakers
There was no 3-minute speaker this week - I'll say it AGAIN, if you can't do any of your rostered duties, please organise someone else.
Our main Speaker this week was Dr Iain Buckland who gave a very interesting talk on how history can be very embellished by researching the food that were eaten and how they were prepared through the ages.
Australia Day Celebrations were very well attended again this year. Here are some happy snaps thanks to Mike Weber and including John Welsh's grandson being turned into a tiger
