Di's Dialogue #7

Thank you to Alan Bishop PE and Sergeant-at-Arms for running a tight Club Assembly meeting on Monday night!
Bryce Eishold was the ‘At the Podium’ and delivered a very interesting talk about car restoration. I particularly enjoyed the historical research that Bryce shared and background information about past owners who have had the joy of driving his beloved little Morris. I enjoyed also hearing Bryce speak about his restoration and what he has achieved. The Morris is a little beauty and there were several members who spoke wistfully of their first Morris car.
So good was the presentation, that Robin Noakes has been inspired to organise our fifth Monday to be a road trip back in time for members to share stories about their first car.
So, my quote for this week is about storytelling…
“I think the best stories always end up being about the people rather than the event, which is to say character-driven.”
― Stephen King
I am looking forward to hearing some great ‘first car’ stories and learning a little something about my fellow Rotarians.
Enjoy the weekend: sunny on Saturday, stormy on Sunday. Bit like 2020 actually!
Stay safe,
President Di

It was great to see many hands go up when I asked who had taken a tour of our Website. For those who still haven’t visited the site yet, please have a go by going to

Even without logging into the member area, there is plenty of information that can be accessed from the front page of the Website.

For this week’s exercise, check out the following links located down the left-hand side of page:

· Upcoming Events – hit a link to find out about future club meetings

· History – located in the ‘Site Pages’ section – hit the link and read about the history of our club.

· Search for the ‘Club Program’ for July to December. The program can be found in two difference locations – can you find them.

Remember, if anyone wants help with the Website, please give me a call

Round Table Chat

As you know Monday the 31st August is a stay at home and watch a movie night, - No scheduled Rotary meeting.


As Bryce had done such a good job yesterday talking about his interest in restoring cars, which generated a lot of discussion, it occurred to me that we all have memories of our first car. Some good, some bad.

Perhaps we would like to share them at an informal “Round Table Chat” meeting on 31st August.

Hence I am running a meeting on 31 August.

TOPIC “MY FIRST CAR” or motor bike or moped or........ 

I will invite everyone to chat about their “FIRST”.

If you can, please find a photo(s) and scan it to jpg ready to share. Or use your phone to take a photo of a photo and copy it to your PC “Pictures folder” ready to share during zoom meeting

We will try and share screens like Bryce did, so we can all see the mighty machines.

Don't feel under pressure to be there, no attendance report, no apologies needed. Just join if you want to.

Please invite your partners, they may have a contribution they might like to make too.

I'm sure we will hear some interesting stories. Call me if you need help with the photos.

See you then.




Crocus Flowers – Request for Photos

I hope that Club members who purchased crocus bulbs are starting to enjoy some purple Spring joy to brighten up our lives.  If so, could you please take a photo and forward to me so we can put together something to put on the Rotary Club of Moe Facebook page.   Think we could all do with a bit of joy right about now.

District News
NIGERIA- Polio free
Email sent to: All Rotarians (on behalf of DG Mark Humphries)
Response: Share the great news
On 25 August, the WHO African region has been declared officially certified free of wild poliovirus. This certification will come four years after Nigeria – the last polio-endemic country in Africa – recorded its final case of wild polio.
This milestone is an incredible public health achievement for Rotary members, the African region, and our Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) partners, and a huge step forward on the road to global polio eradication.
Rotary members have played an invaluable role in the effort to rid the African region of wild polio. We should be proud of all the hard work that we’ve done to eliminate the wild poliovirus throughout Africa and in nearly every country in the world. 
To celebrate this incredible achievement can you please share this news via social media.  Please go to the District 9820 Facebook page and 'like' the post announcing the news.  You can also share the post so more of your family and friends can learn about this fantastic news. 
We will certainly be celebrating this news at my Fireside Chat tonight.
Email sent to: All Rotarians (on behalf of DG Mark Humphries)
Response: Log in via Zoom link
The 5th Fireside Chat next week will be a slightly different format with a guest speaker presenting on the history of gin.  So come along and bring your favourite tipple to hear the presentation and share in informal discussion with other Rotarians.
Mark Humphries is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
