Di's Dialogue # 17

Friday night has come around so quickly.

What a week it has been!  Lots of celebration in response to wonderful results regarding the COVID numbers. I do wonder how many doughnuts have been eaten...

 
For those who made it along to the Melbourne Cup Eve & Australian Rotary Health Zoom meeting, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks again Rog Taylor for all the preparation undertaken for a great night. I guess I am pretty happy as I won the Moe Rotary Club Sweep with my horse, 'Twilight Payment'! Must say I didn't get really excited during the race as Twilight Payment was in front all the way to the finishing post.
 
Thank you to everyone who engaged with the theme for the evening: wearing race attire or hats to promote 'Lift a Lid for Mental Health' Hat Day which is a focus of Australian Rotary Health. I am hoping our Treasurer will be able to report on Monday how much we can send off to ARH from club member donations received. 
 
Australian Rotary Health (ARH) is one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia. What I didn't realise is that ARH is a project of the Rotary Districts of Australia and is supported by Rotary Clubs. So again, thanks to everyone who wore a hat and donated to the ARH. 
 
We had a Club Assembly meeting on Wednesday night via Zoom and members of the Community Committee met face-to-face at the Moe Racing Club on Thursday night. Gosh, it was lovely to actually see some fellow Rotarians and to share a meal together afterwards. Thanks to Bill Connell for organising the Fireside meeting. It was an opportunity to test running a 'hybrid' meeting (face-to-face and Zoom) and as expected, there were some glitches with technology. Not to worry!
 
On Monday, we have Diane Wilkinson and Bryon Puddy address the club and I am looking forward to their presentation about The Rotary Foundation. 
 
Well done Bryon on achieving 37 years in Rotary on the 31 October. Also a special mention to Dave Wood who achieved 30 years on 1 October and lastly to Julian Yeatman who achieved an impressive 45 years as a Rotarian on 27 October!! 
 
My 'quote' for this week is very apt as I have sat around many tables this week engaging with fellow club members and importantly, abiding by social distancing protocols:
 
'For good food; for good fellowship and the opportunity to serve through Rotary, we give thanks'           
 
Enjoy the weekend. Stay safe and hopefully it won't be long before the 'Ring of Steel' is lifted, and people are once again able to move freely.

R.I.P. Lyn Hitchins
It was with sadness that members of the Rotary Club of Moe received news about the passing of Lyn Hitchins.  Jeff, Lyn and the team at TM & H Mitre 10 Moe have been an enormous support to our club and the wider community over many years.
