Ian Hovey

Dr Leon Lewi graduated as a medical doctor in 1961. In 1967, he started a solo practice in East Keilor where the roads were unmade and there was no sewerage.

General practice in those early days involved all skills. He used to deliver 100 babies per year and even did a few  tonsillectomies.

Leon joined the Rotary Club of East Keilor in 1968 having become acquainted with Rotary on his honeymoon.

Today, after more than 50 years, he still works part time and is still very active in Rotary. In fact, he is the District Chair of Interplast which will be the topic of his presentation.


For the first 24 years of his working life, David Mullins was a mechanical maintenance engineer in the aviation industry. For many of these years, he was a diligent employee for the company, Hawker de Havilland but his heart wasn't really in it. He didn't see it as a long-term career. During this time, David took up photography as a hobby. Eventually, it became more than just a recreational pastime. He was starting to turn it into a business and he ultimately left his job to set up a visual arts operation called Relativity3D.

David, who lives in Point Cook with his wife and two sons, is now a freelance photographer with a great reputation for producing quality images. He provides Wyndham Council with many of the local images that they use for their official magazines and reports. He has also captured some tremendous photos of Melbourne and surrounds. Internationally, David loves to travel to Cambodia and other parts of Asia to photograph many impressive and unusual subjects. His extensive work is now being shown in various art galleries around the world.

But photography is only one string to his bow. He has also immersed himself in using very complex software to turn imagination into real life images and objects. He now has a massive collection of 3D images that he produces for many clients including architects and property developers. He has even done 3D modelling for a New York surgeon who wanted a 3D cross-sectional design of a human eye.

Another fantastic body of work is merging old images of Melbourne with new images. The results are quite amazing. 

To top it all off, David now has a 3D printer which he uses to create exact replicas of items. He is now creating artificial hands for children that are sent to various parts of the world.

The inaugural Cut, Giggle and Sew working bee will take place this Saturday (27th October) from 2pm to 4pm at Mary Macaulay's house - 6 Kameruka Crt, Werribee.

Attendees will be making re-usable cloth bags from off-cuts of fabric and other material.

Apparently, the plan is to do lots of cutting and sewing with some time out for a bit of socialising with a glass of wine or a cup of tea and a scone. So please bring a bottle of wine (if you wish to have a tipple) and a small plate.

Please contact Lyn Fava (0412 353385 or to confirm your attendance.

Happy sewing to all.



Secretary Ross Smith presented a summary of the key items from the Board meeting on 22nd October:

  1. Drought - the consensus was that any funding should be provided to Victorian farmers. Graham Roper will determine if this can be achieved.

  2. Bunnings BBQ - it was agreed that all proceeds up to $1000 from this Thursday's BBQ would go towards the Les Porter Salvation Army 1000km bike ride.

  3. Cancer Wellness Centre - Rotarian Yvonne Moon has acquired a house in Wyndham to establish the ROCAN Wellness Centre. The Board determined that there should be a cluster fund-raiser to support this facility.

  4. Interplast - It was agreed to donate $500 towards the support of a girl in her late teens from an Asian country who has a massive growth on her face as a result of being badly beaten and is being transported to Sydney to have facial surgery.

  5. WERN - We are continuing to support the Western Emergency Relief Network by contributing $1000 towards our membership.

  6. Bingo:

    • Our application to be a registered Bingo provider at the Italian Social Club has been approved.

    • ECHO, the outgoing business, has relinquished their right to run Bingo at ISCW.

    • We have lodged notice of intention to commence Bingo from 29th October 2018.

    • A new Bingo bank account is being established.


At very late notice, the Footscray-Yarraville City Band is inviting you to a beautiful musical theatre production called “The Silent Anzac” that will be performed at the Williamstown Town Hall this Saturday, 27th October 2018 at 7.30 pm.

As part of the Armistice Centenary commemoration, the show features a specially commissioned major work recounting the exploits of the Australian submarine HMAS AE2.

Tickets are very reasonably priced at just $28 for seniors and concessions. 

This is the band’s farewell performance prior to leaving for the Western Front on 2nd November to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice.  The band will be performing a wreath laying service at the Australian National Memorial, Villers-Bretonneux which will be filmed and live-streamed to Australia.

IN BRIEF........
  • Best wishes to Mary Macaulay whose father passed away recently. We offer our sympathies.
  • There are 8 members who still have not paid their dues. Come on guys!
  • Ian Knight is still having a few health issues relating to his recent heart surgery. But he's a tough dude and expects that, after some adjustments to his medication, he'll be fully fit and firing again. Here's hoping for a happy and healthy time ahead Knighty.
  • The next mid-week BBQ at Bunnings will be this Thursday (25th October). Thanks to those who have volunteered. The roster is as follows:

    • 9:30am - Setup (Geoff Smith and Adrian Burt)

    • 10am-12pm - Tony Todaro, Tom Lentini, Barb Purdy, Phil Purdy

    • 12pm-2pm - Joe Cumbo, Kim Deneys, Glenyce Deneys, Graham Simmonds

    • 2pm-4pm - Geoff Smith, Peter Ross, Pam Lang

  • From all reports, our beloved President Graham Roper is recovering well after having a knee-replacement operation at Warringal Private Hospital in Heidelberg on Tuesday. He will be incapacitated for a while but, most importantly, he will be back on the golf course within about 6 weeks. We wish him well. Here's an adults-only photo of him in bed. Please note he is apparently wearing a hospital gown.


  • There are only 4 words in the English language which end in 'dous' (they are: hazardous, horrendous, stupendous and tremendous).

  • If you filled a matchbox with gold it could be flattened into a sheet the size of a tennis court.
