Moderator Robin Noakes' New Information
Meeting on SKYPE 25th May, 2020
Hi all,
So here are some repeated requests.
Once you are successfully logged into the meeting, please leave your mouse or touch screen alone, other than to turn on and off your mike, when speaking or not speaking.
The reason is that someone may inadvertently share their screen, turn on video,
cut themselves or others out of the meeting (all of which we have done), or any other clunkers we have yet to experience.
During the structured part of the meeting where we are getting updates etc, please just say your name if you want to say something. I will then invite you to speak.
I plan to do a run round everyone during the meeting to see how they are going, so here is your chance to fill us in on some, hopefully, good news, good movies or ideas you have for coping with isolation.
Remember, leave your mouse or touch screen alone.
I again commend you to watch the video on this link, it demonstrates the issues we face. Based on our own experience you will recognise some mishaps!!
May is Youth Service Month
The link between Rotary and youth for many clubs (including our own) is amazing. 
Clubs engage with Youth Programs through Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA),
Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN), Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA),
Rotaract, Interact, District Scholarships, Rotary International Youth Exchanges,
Peer Support Programs in schools, Cure Kids, Life Education vans,
Literacy Programs in schools, and many others.

As your Club Historian I am still seeking member profiles (personal including positions held in Rotary).

The following members have completed their profiles- Len Cairns, Ross Maxfield, Robin Noakes, Bruce Paull,Roger Taylor, Diane Wilkinson, Julian Yeatman, thank to those members. For the following members I have their profile from our 50th Anniversary Report 1949-1999, I now need them to provide an update from 1999. Barry Dunstan, John Hutchinson, Michael Koch, David Power, Bryon Puddy, Dave Wood.


To all other Club Members please during this time of lockdown it’s a great opportunity to complete your profile and email it to me.

Thanking You in anticipation.


Helen’s Herald #42
Last week we decided to have the Board meeting instead of a normal meeting. I hope everyone kept in touch and all members are well.
The Rotary year is nearly over and soon we will have a new President and a new board. The next board meeting has been scheduled for June 15th 2020 via zoom and will be a combined meeting with the current board and the incoming board members. The official changeover will be different this year but is scheduled for the 6th July 2020.
The board discussed ideas for the Botanic gardens and we would like all members if possible, to meet at Pashies Pavilion in the gardens at 10am on 29th May. We will look at what needs to be done for improvements and any projects we can put our money towards. If you cannot make this and have some ideas, please forward them to Maureen.
In the 1920's in rural America, Fred and his wife Edna went to the State Fair every year.
Each year Fred would say, "Edna, I'd like to ride in that there airplane."
And every year Edna would say, "I know Fred, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars and ten dollars is ten dollars.
In 1928 Fred and Edna again went to the Fair and Fred said, "Edna, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride in that airplane
this year I may never get another chance."
Edna replied, "Fred, that airplane costs ten dollars for a ride and ten dollars is ten dollars!"
The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride.
If you remain quiet for the entire trip and do not say one word you can fly for free.
However, if you say one even one word the cost is ten dollars.
Fred and Edna agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all types of twists, turns, dives and barrel rolls. Not a word was heard.
He did all of his tricks a second time however again not a word was spoken.
The pilot landed the plane and he said to Fred, "By golly, I did everything that I could to get you to yell out
however there was nothing."
Fred replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Edna fell out of the airplane, but ten dollars is ten dollars!"
Two old codgers took their wives along to a ladies evening at an exclusive Melbourne Club.
They chose the Club's speciality from the menu - a thick blue boiler pea soup made with lashings of ham from the bone.
An hour later while they were enjoying port and cheese the inevitable happened .
One of the gentleman emitted a sound from his nether regions which is best described as a massive breaking of wind.
"I say, old boy," said his startled Club mate, "not in front of my wife."
The deadpan, but contrite reply came, "Oh, terribly sorry, old chap, I wasn't aware that it was her turn."
During the Queen's second visit to Australia in the 1950's she was taken to see a football match between the Melbourne Demons and the Essendon Bombers.
At half time she was introduced to the players.
Her Majesty had been very impressed by one of the Essendon player's long drop kicks that were travelling over 60 metres.
She asked the boy who was from Dimboola, "How did you learn to kick the ball so far?"
"Ah, jeez", he replied, "when I was knee high to a grass hopper, I learned how to kick bloody Mallee roots over 50 metres."
The Essendon President who was standing next to the Queen quickly said, "I say, that a bit strong."
The young lad was a little embarrassed and he replied, "Ah well, bloody forty metres then!"
An Irishman took up golf. However he wasn't very good at the game and his lack of success was most frustrating.
One day as he went to the practice fairway a leprechaun appeared and said, "I'll help you to become a champion golfer however you will have to give up your sex life."
The golfer agreed. 
After a month's training and following the leprechaun's advice his game dramatically improved.
Within two months he was champion of the Club and three months after that he won the Irish Amateur.
The leprechaun came back and said, "I have kept my part of the bargain and now it's your turn to pay. Remember from this day forward you are not allowed to have sex."
The golfer nodded and the leprechaun said, "I'm just going to record our deal in my diary. What's your name?"
The golfer smiled and replied, "Father O'Flaherty!"
Tarzan came home exhausted. He flopped down on the couch and said to Jane, "It's a jungle out there!"
What do you call a multi-millionaire driving through a working class suburb?
Keep safe everyone
President Helen Morrison
