Our home is girt by sea,
Our land abounds in natures gifts,
Of beauty rich and rare,
In history's page, let every stage

Di's Dialogue #6

I am feeling a bit more optimistic this week!
When you are positive, good things happen. Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.
An optimist understands that life can be a bumpy road, but at least it is leading somewhere...
We are doing really well in that we are meeting together and enjoying fellowship, albeit online.
A warm welcome to Ross Maxfield who will be zooming with us for the first time on Monday night! 
Thank you to members who are making time to connect with Rotary mates. It is really important that we support each other through these trying times! Oh, how I wish we could be back at the RSL again...
On a sad note, I wish to inform members that PP Wendy Farmer has advised the Board of her decision to resign from the Rotary Club of Moe. 
Her thirteen years of service to the club are much appreciated. Wendy has contributed not only as President, but also as Chair of Youth/Vocation; International Service and Program Chair. Wendy was also actively involved at District level with the Youth Exchange program. So, on behalf of members, I thank Wendy for her service to Rotary and wish her well in her future endeavours.
Behind the scenes, there is much happening, and our committee Chairs will be sharing what their respective committees are planning for the coming year. It is an optimistic outlook as we don’t really know what we will be able to do during these pandemic times. Nonetheless, onwards and upwards we will head!
At our Club Assembly on Monday night, Barry Dunstan will be reporting to the club about grant applications he has completed on behalf of members to secure further funding for our staged Botanic Gardens project. The Board has endorsed applications to Latrobe City Council and Energy Australia. An exciting time for our club and full of optimism that even during these times of social distancing and isolation we can still forge ahead and be positive. Thanks Barry and the team, Alan Bishop and Bill Connell, who are working to assist Barry.
Diane Wilkinson will also update members about the By-Laws and what is happening with our Club Constitution. Thank you to members involved in this important hard-working group: Diane, Len, Bryon and Peter. I sincerely appreciate your efforts.
Maureen Bishop has been busy writing up two lots of Special Minutes which will be available for members to read on our club website: the first lot relate to Botanic Gardens funding applications; the second lot relate to a Steve Bechaz and his grant application. She has also had Club Administration minutes to do as well! As the immediate past Secretary, I know how hard Maureen has been working and I thank her!!
My thought for this week is inspired by A.A. Milne, an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh.
“What day is it?” asked Pooh.
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favourite day,” said Pooh.
Hoping that the coming days are your favourite days and that you can maintain an optimistic outlook.
See you all in zoom-land on Monday night.

Website Wonders

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be publishing information about our website. 
Some members regularly access the website, some occasionally and some very rarely or never. 
This week I’d like to invite all members to have a look at the Rotary Club of Moe website. 
There is quite a lot of information on there and many links that take you to other pages.
To access the site go to
This takes you to the front page of the website. 
From here you can view the latest information about our club. On the left-hand side is a series of sections entitled Upcoming Events; Bulletins; Sites Pages; Club Link; Downloads. 
All of these have links that takes you further into the site and provides additional related information.
Once you hit a link you can return to the front page by hitting the back arrow located at the top left hand side of page.
Please take yourself on a tour of our website. 
I would love to see that everyone has visited and discovered the volume of information that is stored here.
Next week I will publish information on logging in and looking at your profile. In the meantime, should anyone wish to login and cannot remember their login details, please let me know and I will assist.
Have a good week
Maureen Bishop

Public Image Q and A

Got a Burning Question about Public Image?

Do you have a question about Public Image you would like answered?

Then, join us (virtually) for a Q&A Webinar and have your question answered.

A panel of the public image coordinator team will be available to answer any questions you may have to do with how your Club can raise its public image, tell its Rotary stories, get its branding compliant, or maximise its impact through social media.

Details:  Sunday, 30th August 2020 at 1pm AEST  by ZOOM

As public image is every Rotarian's responsibility, the Q&A is open to ALL Rotarians , not just your public image director. Participant numbers will be restricted to allow for maximum interaction and discussion.

To register your interest contact Rotary Public Image Cordinator, Gina Growden on or mobile 0412 128 106,  and the Zoom link will be forwarded to you.

Please forward this email to members of your club who may be interested in attending.

We look forward to seeing you on 30th August.

New District RORP Champion
It is with great pleasure to welcome Wayne Jenkins from the Rotary Club of Mt Martha to the new role of District RORP Champion. RORP is Rotary Overseas Recycled Playgrounds and is involved in removing playgrounds within the District and shipping them to Rotary Clubs in countries such Sri Lanka, Timor Leste, Tanzania and soon to be in Nepal and the Philippines. The playgrounds are then   re-assembled and used by children that would not have had the opportunity to use such equipment.
The Program commenced in 2017 by the Rotary Club of Kensington / Flemington and was adapted by Wayne who has been leading this program in the Peninsula Cluster where they have relocated 6 of the 30 playgrounds to date from Councils, Schools etc , repaired them and transported overseas (using DIK).
Wayne and his team have developed great systems, techniques, structure and equipment needed for rolling the program out for the whole District.
This is a ready made International project for Clubs. Wayne is available to speak at Club Zoom meetings and to share the process and the program.
Please add Wayne to your Speakers List for 2020.
Wayne can be contacted at email:
Best regards,
Colin Byron
District International Service Chair (DISC)
Keep smiling!
