Congratulations to PDG Dennis Shore, of the Rotary Club of Hawthorn on his appointment as a Rotary Foundation Trustee. In Rotary Foundation month, I was pleased to be invited to the 30th Annual Paul Harris Breakfast, last Tuesday. Jeroen Weimar, the former Commander of the COVID-19 Response in Victoria, and the CEO of the Victoria 2026 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, gave a pleasant talk of A Journey of Leadership and Self-Transformation to Rotarians. At the meeting. PDG Dennis Shore from our parent club, Rotary Hawthorn, was announced as a Trustee of the Rotary Foundation.
