9 July 2021
Hello Fellow Rotarians and friends,
This is my first President's report and comes from a COVID bunker and I hope you are all staying COVID safe and well!
As a result of this lockdown, we missed our annual Change-over celebration, however hopefully we will be able to celebrate on the 23rd of July (we will need to keep our fingers and toes crossed).
I would like to start by saying thank-you to past president Mandy and her committee people for a successful year under trying conditions. I would also like to welcome the new committee and look forward to working with you to make it another successful and enjoyable year.
On Sunday last (4th July) Mandy, Bernie and myself were to attend the District Change-over, however the lunch at Castle Hill was cancelled and replaced with a zoom presentation. A thank you was made to the out-going committee members and a welcome to the new committee members was presented by our past DG David Clark and our new DG Lindsay May. There was also an introduction to our new RI President – Shekhar Mehta and his theme is “Serve to Change Lives”.
This Friday, Rob Wilkinson has arranged for some long-time friends to regale us with some stories from the music scene of the 1960’s, ’70’s, 80’s, and beyond. This should be very entertaining and stir up some old memories.
The Macquarie Park Change-over dinner booked for this Friday, 9th July, has been postponed due to COVID lockdown. When revised details are available, these will be advised.
Our new DG, Lindsay May, will be visiting our club at Dunmore Lang College on the 30th of July. We will be enjoying a hot breakfast and return of Heads and Tails.
We were lucky to have had our Bunnings BBQ on 19th June. Thanks to Garry for his coordinating and all our participants who helped make it a success. 
Please be reminded to complete and return the Member Survey, to help guide us through the next year and beyond.
The next scheduled Club Meeting is on 9 July at 7:15 am by Zoom. The Guest Speakers are:
Mario Millo - guitarist, singer, song writer, movie and television composer.
Jim Towers - band booking agent, venue entertainment agent and promoter.
