President's Message - Carolyn Such

Message from President Carolyn
This week I was reminded about the benefits of our home hosting program.  Chris and I enjoyed a beautiful Friday lunch with Brendan and Marilyn Hoban at their home and Carol Allen joined us.  It is a great way to re-connect with old friends and hear what is going on in their lives and also get to know newer members much better.  I recommend it to everyone. 
Friday night I attended the film night was organised by Dromana Rotary with proceeds to go to polio eradication, a major Rotary International project.  Approximately one hundred Rotarians and spouses enjoyed the film about a very stubborn man who decided to walk the famous 800km Camino de Santigo pilgrimage in Spain.  He made it in the end, but it was interesting to see the people he met along the way and the way they influenced him.
Well, the busiest Rotary weekend of the year is behind us.  The combination of a Bunnings BBQ and filling in for Lions at a Farmers Market was a real challenge for us.  Congratulations to Annette Ferrier for being able to build effective rosters for both events with the help of a few spouses, friends, children as well as willing satellite Club members.  Thank you to everyone who helped us.  At the time of writing the financial results are not available but Chris reported that the Farmers Market BBQ people had to go off and replenish supplies so I am expecting a good combined result.  
This week we have our Club Assembly as usual.  I do hope that we can get good attendance.  This is the best way for everyone to hear what is going on in the various committees and have a say about setting priorities.

Change Over Mt Eliza 2024
Rotary Club of Mt Eliza 2024/ 25 Changeover Event
As President Carolyn is staying on for a second year, this year we will be having a more casual Changeover Event, rather than a Changeover Dinner.
All Rotarians, Friends, Family and others are invited to what should be a great evening of Fun & Fellowship at the Mt Eliza Bowls Club on Tuesday, 25 June from 6.00 pm for a 6.30 pm start.
Highlights of the evening will include:
* A Spanish theme with a delicious Paella meal (vegetarian option available) prepared by Juan from Peninsula Paellas
* Under the leadership of President Carolyn, confirmation of Board Members for the 2024/25 Rotary Year
* Announcement of Major Vocational Award winners - Community, Shine On & Stan Spencer Awards
* Quizzes and other competitions with bottles of wine and/ or chocolates as prizes
The cost of the evening is $40 per person with drinks available at bar prices.
Please use the Humanitix Site below to book.

Brynton's Joke of the Week
Brynton's Joke of the week 
A crew of volunteers comes together to build a new church using donated materials. They work hard and soon have the structure completed. Now it’s time to paint the church. They look at the paint that’s been donated and realize they don’t have enough to cover the entire building. One man says, “We have lots of paint thinner. Why don’t we thin the paint so it will go farther?” So that’s what they do. They’re almost finished covering the walls of the church when a big black cloud gathers above them. Boom! Crack! Lightning flashes and thunder rolls and rain falls in a torrent until it washes all the paint off the church. Then out of the cloud a deep voice thunders, “Repaint! And thin no more!”
