Angel Flight Australia is a charity which coordinates non-emergency flights to assist country people to access specialist medical treatment that would otherwise be unavailable to them because of vast distance and high travel costs.

Our guest speaker will be Rex Booth who is a volunteer pilot. He spends much of his time in the air carrying hundreds of patients around Australia.

He and his colleagues pick up patients in remote areas and fly them to the city for non-emergency treatment.



Members, partners and guests got the new year off to a pleasant start with a casual evening held at Tino and Robyn Ballan's house.

All who attended seemed quite relaxed after the Christmas break and ready to fire up in the New Year.

We even had a couple of prospective members there who joined in the spirit of the occasion. The Bulletin editor was in such a relaxed mood that he forgot to get their names. However, we are advised that they will be attending future meetings so the error will be corrected

Thanks to Tino and Robyn for opening up their home to us. They are very generous and gracious hosts.



Just in case you had forgotten, this is an image of the winning team at the Werribee Rotary Golf Day last year. The group includes our very own President Graham Roper and Ian Hovey. They have been bragging about their achievements ever since.

Now is the time to put them in their place. The 2019 Golf Day will be held on Friday 1st March at the Werribee Park Golf Club. The organisers, ably led by Ross Conley, have been working hard to prepare for another successful day. This time, the majority of the proceeds will go towards the upgrade of the Dementia Unit at Manor Court Aged Care.

Don't forget that we will be also conducting the Hole-in-One competition on the 15th tee. You have a chance to win a brand new car thanks to Ballan Holden.

Apart from players and sponsors, we are also looking for volunteers who would be prepared to help out on the day. Please contact Ross if you can assist.

IN BRIEF........
  • Thanks to the hard-working team at last Thursday's Bunnings BBQ who sweltered and sweated through the heat of the day to raise $725. Chief organiser Geoff Smith expressed his gratitude to Brian Ahmed, Rob Fava, Adrian Burt, Graham Roper, Kim and Glenyce Deneys, Mary Macaulay, Ann Smith, Therese and Charlotte Daddy, Phil and Barb Purdy, Jeff Garfield, Carlo Vimercati and Pam Lang for their efforts. The next BBQ is on Thursday 21st February.

  • The following photo shows a happy Mim Micallef towering over a vertically-challenged Phil Purdy. Honey, I've shrunk Phil.

  • Congratulations to Colin Muir who has accepted an invitation from District 9920 in New Zealand to be the RI Presidents Representative at their conference in Napier in May.




A man is walking home alone late one foggy Halloween night . . . all of a sudden he hears from behind: 
 “BUMP . . . 

BUMP . . . 


Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog. He makes out the image of a casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him: “

BUMP . . . 

BUMP . . . 


Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket continuing to bounce along behind him: “

BUMP . . . 

BUMP . . . 


He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him.
 However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping: “

Clappity-BUMP . . . 

Clappity-BUMP . . . 


The terrified man runs.

 Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; he’s gasping.

With a loud crash, the casket breaks down the door.
 Bumping and clapping toward him.

The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup. Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the casket.

The coffin stops.
