Education and Literacy Month

Di's Dialogue #8

Monday night saw several members share memories of their first ‘car’ and many funny stories were told. Photos of those first ‘cars’ are included in this bulletin edition. Thank you Robin Noakes for providing an opportunity to reminisce. 
This coming Monday (1st Monday) is scheduled to be a Fireside committee meeting. There is very little happening in Youth/Vocational or Community Service, and Chairs of those committees have decided to cancel their meetings. The International/Foundation committee will meet and Chair, Diane Wilkinson, will send out a Zoom invitation.
I am anticipating Sunday will bring good news regarding our Stage 3 and the metropolitan Stage 4 lockdown. It has been a really difficult time for so many people and I am hoping the ‘roadmap’ out is not littered with potholes!
Sunday is also Father’s Day. It will look and feel very different this year so enjoy the memories of past Father’s Day gatherings and hopefully we can see family members soon...
With the onset of spring weather, life seems a bit brighter. No doubt seeing all the beautiful yellow daffodils is uplifting.
The news that really lifted my soul this week was that the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced the transmission of the wild poliovirus has been officially stopped in 47 countries of its African region. This is historic and a vital step towards global eradication of polio, which is Rotary’s top priority!
Rotary members have contributed nearly $890 million towards polio eradication efforts in the African region. The funds have allowed Rotary to issue PolioPlus grants to fund polio surveillance, transportation, awareness campaigns, and National Immunisation Days.
So proud to be a member of this amazing organisation!
A fitting English proverb for this week:
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.”
Stay safe everyone. See you all virtually soon.
President Di
Strategic plan
A copy of the amended Strategic Directions Plan 2020-2021 was sent out by email.
As 'Fireside' Committee meetings are scheduled for this Monday 7th September, Chairs are encouraged to table the Plan at their meetings and discuss the areas relevant to their committee.
President Di is seeking endorsement from members and will table the amended document at the September Board meeting.
Please read and provide your comments to President Di as soon as possible.
Maureen Bishop
Constitution draft
A draft new Constitution for the Rotary Club of Moe has been sent by email for your review and feedback. The Constitution and By-Laws working group has reviewed the standard Constitution that has been developed by District and has made some minor changes to make this document applicable to the operation of our Club.
We would appreciate your feedback on this document within the next two weeks please to enable the working group to review all comments and made any relevant amendments and recirculate for further consideration.
This time-frame is necessary if we are to complete the document and have it ready to present to members for adoption through a special resolution at the AGM.
Happy to discuss either by mobile phone or email if you would like any further clarification.
(Chair, Constitution & By-Laws Working Group)
Guest Speakers Sept 14
Guest Speakers:  next Monday September 14
Julie completed her teacher training at Monash University Gippsland. She remains a local educationalist, having followed appointments at Albert Street and Newborough Primary Schools with her current placement at Newborough East PS. She rapidly advanced from classroom teacher to Assistant Principal (for approximately 10 years) before commencing as Principal 2 years ago.
As well as providing strong leadership, she is passionate about driving school improvement, both at NEPS and also across the Moe network.
Janine is another local product, teaching in Traralgon, Newborough and Moe following teacher training in Frankston. 
After her first stint at NEPS, she was enticed back following family leave during the 1990's. Subsequently she has enjoyed lengthy placements as Teacher Librarian and Generalist Teacher (predominantly Preps).
Our two presenters will comment on how they have dealt with Remote Learning (twice now) from both management and classroom perspectives.

Guess who's first car
The sergeant will be out fining members for trying to guess the Rotarian with their fist car (A great Round Table Chat organised by Robin Noakes on Monday 31 Aug)
 This member claims to have started driving a motorised vehicle at about age 5, also claims to have a perfect driving record
 Looks are not deceptive; this car is definitely much older than its current proud owner
 Flower power? First love with the first car.. Good old uni days.. but whose first car?
    A rebel with a good cause? Some (memorable?) disagreements with dad revealed by this member
  this old boy unable to find any photos as they as still in the Old Country (stock photo.. Wikipedia)
  From little things, big things grow .. she was good while it lasted
   No explanation needed for this famous "panel van", but she held plenty of tools in the back
Keep smiling!

These lockdowns are getting annoying and quite frankly I’ve had enough.

’ve discussed the matter over a cup of tea with the kitchen sink, and we both agree that the experience is draining.

I didn’t mention anything to the washing machine as she puts the wrong spin on everything.

Same with the fridge. He only gives cold shoulder.

I asked the lamp, but she couldn’t shed any new light on the situation.

The vacuum cleaner was rather rude and told me to suck it up Princess.

The threshold was no better, it suggested I get over it.

The carpet advised me to sweep my feelings under the rug.

But the fan was more upbeat and thought that the crisis would soon blow over.

The toilet looked a bit flushed and didn’t offer an opinion.

The wall didn’t say a word either, just gave me a blank stare.

The doorknob was more forthcoming - told me to get a firm grip on the situation and move on.

The front door declared I was unhinged and so the curtains told me guessed it right - pull myself together.

Then the chair told me to table it, and the table remarked , I didn’t have a leg to stand on.

When I told the table to break a leg, the mirror said that my comments reflected poorly on my thinking .

However, in the end, the iron set things straight . She said everything will be fine .

No situation is too pressing for long anyways.

Stay safe everyone
