Club Members who have not given notice of their inability to attend the meeting are expected to pay the cost of the dinner being $20.  Members can pay by cash or EFTpos at the fellowship table on arrival or online to Maryborough Rotary. 
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
We wish every member and reader a Happy 2018!
As we head into a new Year and a new Month this month is Rotary in Vocation Month. It is important for us to recognise that every vocation requires different talents, some of which each does not possess. It is just as well we are all different so we are able to bring different gifts to the table in anything we do. I personally have the deepest respect for all the members of Maryborough Rotary and their talents.
I hope that each member and reader has had a great Christmas and New Year.

CEO Terry Welch will this week lead us into a new world of learning for medical staff. Look forward to seeing you there hopefully with your wife/husband/partner etc. - even your children if they are interested.
Thanking you for your contribution to making a difference.
President Karen McCarthy

Fun Night at the Golf Club
Rotarians enjoyed a fun night out at the Maryborough Golf Club last Thursday. After a generous three course meal, some of our members tried their hand at lawn bowls - with varying degrees of success.
Rotarians Rock in the New Year
Almost ninety Rotarians and guests rocked in 2018 at the Maryborough Town Hall on New Year's Eve. Participants danced to the music of "Seriously Sixties". The "Lucky Draw" winner was Andrew Harman from Ballarat, and "runner-up" prizes went to Bob Osborne and Ben Haywood. Others won prizes for the "Lucky Door" and "Lucky Spots". A big "thank you" to PE Meryl for organizing the event, to those Rotarians or friends who helped to set up and dismantle the hall - including Jackie Dellavedova who mopped the whole floor, as well as Shane, Derrick, Karen, Rod, Peter, Geoff & Meryl, to Margaret Rumpff who set up the winning hamper, to Derrick and Karen, Geoff and Meryl and the new Paramount Theatre for prizes, and to the band - some of whom donated their time and others who played for significantly reduced amounts. A good time was had by all, and we should raise well over half a grand for our Club Youth Programs. Pictures show the band in action, Rodney and Sue, Tom and Rosemary and PDG Jessie Harman who was part of a large table from Wendouree Breakfast Rotary.
Update of State of My Vocation Roster
Members are urged to look for the updated list of "State of My Vocation" talks that will be sent to everyone around the same time as this week's bulletin. It lists SUGGESTED times for the next six months for members who, as far as we know, might still be willing to do a 3 minute talk on what is happening in their vocational area at the moment (if they are in employment) OR what they are currently doing to fill in their days (if in retirement). If you do NOT want to do one of these talks and your name is on the list, just send Geoff James an email saying you'd like to be crossed off the list - no problem whatsoever. If you have already told Geoff you don't want to do a talk and your name is still on the list, please email him again.
Remember a "Taste of Gold" in February
