CLUB MEETING 06 FEBRUARY 2024
 
From President Kim:                                                                                  
  • Peter Ross is due home this week, after a five week stint in a Geelong Hospital, after a fall on New Years Day. His pelvis has healed well, and he is up and walking around. His broken shoulder had to be immobilised for 4-5 weeks, and he is starting and exercise program to get the arm working again. Get well Peter.                                                                                                                                                                                                           
  • Bingo is back, with 128 players and a profit of $2,000 yesterday. We expect numbers to pick up as people are returning from holidays.                                                                                                                  
  • The Board has agreed to provide $5,000 to Team Sports 4 All, to sponsor a number of Wyndham kids into a sporting team. Werribee Rotary will be recognised on the Team Sport polo shirts.                                                                                                                                                                                  
  • We have been allocated three Thursday BBQ's at Bunnings. 29th Feb, 28th March & 18th April. 28th March is the day before Good Friday and should be a good one.                             
  • Last week, the state government held a press conference ay Wyndham Park Primary, to recognise Foodbank providing the 40 millionth breakfast meal to state schools. How they came up with the 40 million is questionable. Unfortunately the press conference hardly mentioned Breakfast Club, and focused on other Government business.                                  
  • Next week our meeting will be at the Italian Sports Club on Thursday 15th at 6.30pm. All of the successful Community Grant Awardees, will give a presentation on hoe they intend to use the grant funds. Five Werribee councillors are coming as well as the DG elect & our Assistant Governor. Partners are welcome. Rob Fava needs to know if you are coming for catering purposes, so give him a call. The meal will be alternate Fish or chicken, so let Rob know if you have dietary requirements.
