Have you thought about prepaying a block of meeting fees online?  Club Treasurer Peter Haywood would be interested in hearing from members who would like to adopt this method.  

Each week four Club Members are rostered for Fellowship to assist in greeting attendees, collecting monies, managing the drinks table and putting away meeting items. If you are rostered and unable to attend the meeting, please arrange a replacement.

 Riseley's Remarkables Ramblings
What a remarkable weekend I had, BBL and talking to Brad Hogg again, then meeting Daryl Braithwaite. I know I am very lucky in so many ways. But there are so many less fortunate than ourselves and that sobers me up. 
This week is the committee meetings, both the Service and the Governance committees. Please come along to these important meetings, we need your voice and your opinions, they are valued very much.
UNFORTUNATELY    we have had to postpone 
" A Taste of Gold" Gourmet Food and Craft Cider Festival due to circumstances beyond our control. We will advise you when a date has been selected.
Next week we miss our usual Thursday meeting after just getting back as we are doing Pancakes on Australia Day, this will be considered a normal meeting.
The first 2 meetings this year have been very enjoyable as the meetings for the rest of the year will be. I look forward to seeing your smiling faces this week.

Rotarians Inspired at the New MDHS Centre
Our Rotarians and spouses were inspired by their visit to the MDHS last Thursday. After being hosted by MDHS for a delicious dinner, members were shown through the brand new Centre of Inspired Learning by CEO Terry Welch. This is a dedicated learning centre where nurses can be trained using state of the art simulated training methods using fully functional medical equipment and personal video feedback of everything they do. It is the first centre of its type in Victoria, and is likely to inspire many other country hospitals to follow in its path.
Be the Inspiration in 2018-19
Rotary International President Elect, Barry Rassin has just announced his theme for 2018-19 - it is, "Be the Inspiration". Apart from urging us to be inspirational during the next Rotary year, this will be the theme we need to address at the D9780 Conference here in Maryborough.
Cider Festival Postponed
Due to circumstances beyond the control of the club, we must unfortunately postpone our Taste of Gold Cider Festival until another suitable time, late this year or early next year. All patrons who have paid money will have it refunded.
