President's Message

Dear  Club Members and Friends,
I attended the District 9685 Conference held in Newcastle last weekend along with Garry, Mandy, Ian , Helmiina, Pam and Tom Bennett. It was very enjoyable with truly inspiring guest speakers. The conference dinner was great fun and highly entertaining with many creative costumes and a fabulous band, the Enormous Horns.
The decorated gnome display had to be seen to be believed! Thank you to Pam Bennett who did an outstanding job decorating Gnomez for our club. One of the highlights was a Walk Against Polio along the foreshore of Newcastle to Nobby's Beach. There was a sea of red End Polio Now t-shirts as most of the delegates joined the walk. Congratulations to District Governor Susan Wakefield and PDG John Wakefield and their fabulous team for a very successful conference. I have included some photos from the conference in this bulletin.
Registrations for 2020 District Conference are now open. It will be held in Wollongong and is a joint Conference with District 9875. See more information in this bulletin. I can highly recommend the conferences to members as informative, inspirational and a great way of getting to meet other Rotarians and have some fun.
Our guest speaker this week will be Dr Denise Meuldjk from the Centre for Emotional Health. Some of the funds raised from the North Ryde Fun Run each year go towards the Centre for Emotional Health to support the Cool Kids program. The next meeting for the Club Fun Run Committee will be next Tuesday 9 April at my place, 93 Park Road Hunters Hill commencing at 7.30p.m.. All members are welcome to attend.
The Rotary Club of Macquarie Park's Trivia night is on this Saturday 6 April. please let me know if you would like to join us on a table. For more information see the article in this bulletin.
Kind regards
Pam Wood

Advice of Phising Email From President Rassin

We wanted to bring to your attention an email circulating purportedly from President Rassin asking for donations to help the grieving families of victims in the recent shootings in Christchurch. These are definitely not an authentic Rotary communication but a phishing attempt sent from a different email address. 

 While such phishing attempts are impossible to prevent for email addresses that are publicly available, we encourage all parties to exercise caution and disregard any content that requests money or personal information. It is also helpful to pay close attention to the detail of the sender’s email address and signature to confirm authenticity, and avoid opening attachments or clicking on links from emails that are suspect. If you ever have questions as to whether an email is authentic, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please feel free to circulate this advisory to your clubs and other district officers.
