Our club's most recent guest speaker, Sarah Watts, presented on her newly published book 'Marvellous Miles', a book which seeks to raise awareness of epilepsy and to support people living with the condition, especially children.  Our club have available for purchase (at cost) a supply of the books at our book shop, 30 High Street, Eaglehawk.
Our club have a strong history of involvement within the Rotary Youth Exchange Program.  At last week's meeting we were treated to a visit from Victor Saelens, a former exchange student, from Lille France, who was hosted jointly by our club in 2017-2018.  Seven years later and Victor surprised many of his former host families and Rotarians with a visit.  Here is Victor presenting to the club about his experiences since being here.  A strong message in the benefits of the student exchange program along with an invitation for any of us to visit him in France.  Now, there are some of us who just may take him up on that offer...... !
We celebrated the past rotary year last Friday night - (see some great photos of the night - Photo Albums menu on the right of this page)  Our club thanks go to Immediate Past President Eric, the board and to all members who have made the past year such a success.  A huge year in terms of our club within D9800 with PP Ron Payne and Deb having taken on the role of District Governor.  Whilst it's not the first time one of members has been led the district, it's definitely a year that our current club members will remember with a lot of pride.  We were the home of the District Governor and it was an absolute honour.
We salute you Ron and Deb, you definitely rose to the occasion and conducted yourselves with enthusiasm, professionalism and a great deal of respect and pride in the position.  We are proud of your achievements and look forward to you now having some rest and relaxation, including some additional family time.  
Fellowship is an integral part of Rotary.  Friendships are formed, colleagues are found and a lot of excellent 'service above self' is undertaken.  Rotary is an amazing organisation and we are so fortunate to be able to be involved and share these experiences.  
It's always exciting to see someone discover how great it is being involved in Rotary.  Kylie Campbell recently discovered just that.  Having been volunteering alongside us for several months, she was inducted into the club last night - welcome aboard Kylie!
