The Werribee Incinerator in Bulban Road. That't how we recycled in the 1970's.
Presidents Message for Weekly Meeting 30 Aug 22
Exercise Walkaway Jubilee Estate Wyndhamvale
Five Werribee Rotarians provided catering support for a Multi-Agency Exercise in partnership with Wyndham Council and Victoria Police held at Jubilee Estate Ballan Rd, Wyndhamvale.
Several emergency services and community support organisations were also in attendance.
Rotarians provided free sausages to exercise participants and the public. It was interesting to watch a full exercise in progress and have a chat with other volunteers.
Thanks to Roly, Ross, Colin, Mary, Paula, Nusrat for the cooking and conversation.
Coming Up – Club Assembly
6th September at the Bridge Hotel we will conduct a Club Assembly so please have your ideas ready to present on projects and activities that you would like the club to consider.
That’s it for now, enjoy the Footy and some spring weather as we “Imagine Rotary in 22-23”

District 9800 Membership
District 9800 membership as at 30.06.2022 has fallen to 1,943.
Weekend Away - Silo Tour
It looks like the proposed weekend away/silo tour will not go ahead. The two proposed dates are close to Christmas, and many members have other things booked for the time.
The organising committee will consider the feedback, and maybe consider another date - maybe mid-late February.
Mental Health Seminar
We have had to defer the Mental Health Seminar for Young Females.
With school holidays approaching, we haven't got time to get our message out and confirm speakers. We are mow looking at a suitable date in late term one or term 2.
Tuesday 6th September
Club Assembly - Bring your thoughts on potential projects the club can undertake during the remainder of 2022/2023.

Footy Tipping - after 23 Rounds

Well done Graham Roper who won easily with 149 winners.

Floreat Picca - aka Shane Noonan got up for second with 144, and Ross Conley third with 142.


Alphabet Racing

Alphabet Racing starts again on 17th September. $50 to join, and lots of good fun.

Remember it is not gambling. It's like a sweep, and you don't get to choose your horses.

There are 24horses taken, and only another two to go, Let Ian Hovey know ASAP, if you want one of the two remaining horses.




WERN provides recycled/second hand furniture to people in need. It operates from a factory in Ravenhall, and is open three days a week for people to visit the warehouse and select goods that they need.
Demand for WERN products continues to increase, and we are reaching a point where we do not have enough stock. The WERN Board is considering how we can get more stock, and they are considering a suggestion for the three Rotary Clubs - Werribee, Hoppers Crossing & Wyndham to provide volunteers, to do goods pickups on a Monday.
Collections will be organised by WERN staff, so on a Monday two volunteers arrive at WERN in Ravenhall, pick up the truck, then pick up stock from the Western Suburbs, and bring it back to WERN. The truck would be unloaded and left in the warehouse. The truck only needs an ordinary drivers license. Hours are roughly 9.00 till 3.00.
If the three clubs can provide 8 volunteers, each person would only need to work 1 day a month. People could work weekly, or fortnightly as well.  Ross Conley has indicated an interest. Speak to Rob Fava or Ross Smith if you can help.

Covid Protocols from the Coronavirus Website

Influenza & Covid are both contagious respiratory illnesses. They both have similar symptoms, and you cannot tell the difference between the two by looking at the symptoms alone.

For the safety of all Rotary members, if you or a family member are sick or unwell, or have been in contact with somebody who has Covid, please follow extreme caution, and stay away from Rotary until your illness passes, or you have met Covid isolation protocols.

Covid is incredibly contagious, so lets err on the side of caution.


Guest Speakers

Everyone knows someone with an interesting story to tell. Please pass their details on to Brian Ahmed so we can follow them up to speak to us in person or on Zoom at a later date.
