Last Week's Meeting - 19 April 2021
Haiku Day celebrations brought a different vibe to our Monday meeting.
We had members who went all-in with their famous author or actor outfits, some who came as themselves, and some who came wondering what Haiku Day was all about.
Lili-Ann gave a us a history lesson and read several haiku's that members had composed. There was a variety of themes from train travel,  the weather, the joy of rotary to the hawks. Well done to all who got into the spirit of the day.
Above are Cathie, Gilly and George who were part of the "all-in"group and looked tremendous in their outfits.
Some matter of interest were raised at the meeting:
  • Cathie advised that the change-over night will be at the Amora Hotel on Monday 28 June  - more details to follow soon
  • The Club Board has decided that it will incorporate a welcome to country acknowledgement as part of Club meetings
  • Please remember the "bring a friend"" night on Monday 3 May - see further details below
  • Jenni is looking for assistance with the Busyfeet classes - if you or a someone you know is able to assist please contact Jenni
  • The Club has agreed in principle to join the Rotary Inner Melbourne Emergency Relief Network which will provide donated furniture, appliances and household essentials to people coming out of homelessness, domestic violence, jail, natural disaster and other situations of need.
