As my second week as Club President comes to an end, I would like to say how much I have appreciated the support and best wishes which the Club members have given to me.
This support is very reassuring, as I start off on my special Rotary journey as Club President for the very first time.
On behalf of all the Club members I send very best wishes to Mary, recovering from a knee replacement operation and to Kim, now home from his hip replacement operation. In addition, our best wishes go to Rob, getting treatment for a very painful back condition and to Colin, for an upcoming eye cataract operation.  I hope all of you are able move through these medical treatments and get back to a more normal life as soon as is possible.
At this week’s Zoom meeting it was great to welcome Vas Samaltanos and Paula Kudi again. Vas and Paula, you were able to tell us a little about yourselves and answer some questions. We look forward to having you come to more of our meetings.
Our next meeting on Tues July 21st will be a Club Assembly, with no guest speaker. This will be an open forum focussing on the Rotary year ahead. Members will have the opportunity to freely discuss and raise any issues they wish, whether negative, positive or in-between.
I will be presenting my ideas about
  • Starting time for our Zoom meetings
  • Activities which we could be undertaking during Covid lockdown
  • Supporting the local Werribee/Wyndham community   
  • Telling the Rotary story to Wyndham                                                                               
The July Board Meeting has been set back a week to Wed July 29th at 7.30 pm. Details will be sent to Board members.
Enjoy the week,
This Weeks Zoom Speaker
We were expecting a presentation by Natalie from Blazeaid, but Natalie was ill, and asked her colleague Chris to do the presentation for her.
Chris resides on the NSW south coast, and at the time she was dialing into Zoom, a substantial storm was passing thru her area. Unfortunately the quality of the line was poor, and the line kept dropping out. 
Chris called Debbie from Blazeaid who dialed in & did the presentation.
Blazeaid commenced in 2009 after the Black Saturday bushfires, and its sole purpose is to replace fencing after bushfires and natural disasters. Volunteers register with Blazeaid, and join a workteam which is set up in disaster areas.
Teams stay in council areas in caravans, trailers & tents. Volunteers usually stay a minimum of a week, and many stay for much longer.
Teams have a safety briefing each morning, and Blazeaid provide all tools & equipment. Fencing materials are purchased locally where possible.
Blazeaid facts:
  • Their have been over 30,000 volunteers
  • Equivalent of 218,000 volunteer days
  • Currently 25 work camps (many are on hold due to Cavid)
  • More than 17,000 kilometers of fencing erected
Next Week
