President's Message - John Welsh

President’s report 16th February 2023
A small group of members and friends met at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery last Tuesday where we had an opportunity to meet with the CEO Danny Lacy. He explained recent exhibitions and some future ones including the Archibald exhibition which is coming later in the year. We had a private viewing
of the current exhibition and Di Horscroft who has volunteered there for 19 years also showed us her library that she has set up. All very interesting. We then moved to the Rotunda in the Rose garden for snacks and a few drinks. It was a lovely evening, thanks to Judy once again.

If you would like to know “what’s on” at the gallery, then click the link below.
The board met on Wednesday night, the notes will follow shortly.  We meet for the district conference this weekend no doubt will have lots to talk about next week.
Next Tuesday we have our International speaker Paul Roos whose topic is South Africa.
We also have four new members being inducted, it is an important night please come along and make them welcome.


Great Aussie Hike
Great Aussie Hike Notes from Jim Young
Thank you to those Rotarians & Friends who have already volunteered for the Great Aussie Hike on Friday March 24 & Saturday March 25.
The Rotary BBQ will be working on the Saturday from 2.00 pm until 7.00 pm and we already have sufficient volunteers to help.
However, there are still many more volunteers required to act as Course Marshalls.
The attached link below will take you to the Volunteer website.
It is quite easy to select a role and fill in the required information.  If you are able to assist it would be greatly appreciated

Truly Dreadful Valentine's Dad Jokes

"What do you give your Valentine in France?" "A big quiche."
"What do you tell a pig on February 14?" "Happy Valen-swine's Day!"
"Do you have a date for Valentine's Day?" "Yes, it's February 14."
"What did the tortoise say on Valentine's Day?" "I turt-ally love you."
"How did the squirrel get his Valentine's attention?" "He acted like a nut."
"How do you keep a jewellery store safe on Valentine's Day?" "You locket."
"What do you call sweets that can keep a beat?" "Candy rappers."
"What do you call a romance that starts at the aquarium?" "Guppy love."
"How do vampires know if they had a successful Valentine's Day?" "If it's love at first bite."
