President's Message - John Welsh

I can’t believe how quickly this year is going, the end of June already! The club meeting on Tuesday was very constructive, Carolyn and I were able to receive great feedback on each group and ideas for the year. The international group decided to have an Irish night close to St Patricks day next year, we will have to get Jimmy Lardner back for this one.

The communication on the evening was very good. As Carolyn stated, we will have a club night every second month. We aim to have fireside meetings from time to time with our aim for input from all club members and an opportunity to communicate our thoughts and info on a regular basis. These are important meetings so please try to attend.

It is changeover time at the moment, Somerville on Saturday, DG at Warragul on Sunday and
Mornington next Wednesday lots on the Go. I met with Peter Rawlings our AG during the week, his aim was to tell me what was going on with the clusters, Bay trail, environment, Interplast and he was interested in our plans for the year.

Thanks to Crackers for the roster for Bunnings sausage sizzle on Friday, I hope he has overcome his covid!  We had a few little hiccups, nothing major and all went well. We had a profitable day, thanks to all for their participation particularly to Ross for doing a double shift and Janet for a last-minute shift at 11.30.

Next Tuesday we have Charlie and Janne Spears to talk to us on Foundation. Chris Angerer who is our Foundation rep is interstate this week but I know he has been in touch with the Spears to gain some information from them.

Please check the roster for next week, I look forward to seeing you there.
Cheers for now

Brynton's Joke of the Week

Nun In The Bar

A nun, desperately needing to use the restroom, walked into a local bar.
The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and occasionally, the lights
would go out. Each time this happened, the place would erupt into cheers.
However, when the revellers saw the nun, the room went dead silent.
She walked up to the bartender, and asked, “May I please use the restroom?”
The bartender replied, “Okay, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man
in there wearing only a fig leaf.”
“Well, in that case, I’ll just look the other way,” said the nun.
So, the bartender showed the nun to the back of the bar.
After a few minutes, as the lights went out again and the nun came back out, the whole
place stopped to give the nun a loud, enthusiastic round of applause.
She went to the bartender and said, “Sir, I don’t understand. Why did they applaud me
just because I went to the restroom?”
“Well, now they know you’re one of us,” said the bartender. “Would you like a drink?”
“No thank you, but I still don’t understand,” said the puzzled nun.
“You see,” laughed the bartender, “every time someone lifts the fig leaf on that statue,
the lights go out.”
