“Talent wins games but teamwork and intelligence win championships” – Michael Jordan
Hence, we need your participation to come to the RC Glenferrie Changeover June 14th. See below but please book.
Winter is coming – a famous quote from “Games of Throne” for some but also heralding a close of another Rotary Year and the exciting beginning of a new year for our club under the strong leadership of Teresa Liu. BUT there is a month to go and so you will have to be content with my reign for a few more weeks!!  I hope that I have lived up to the Rotary ethics. Trying to learn what a leader is about - Maybe one of my thoughts are expressed thus “A leader is best when people barely know he exists…when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will all say: We did it ourselves”.  Lao-Tzu.
I have always admired a Winston Churchill quote – “We make a living by what we get, but a life by what we give”. However, I have always stated that “In volunteering, you usually get more than what you give”.  Mark Ellis
Member Behind the Badge - Paul Shekleton
It was a pleasure to listen to this presentation by Paul who became a member during November 2021. At the outset he stated that he was delighted to be a part of such a talented and energetic group of individuals. Furthermore, he modestly downplayed his life's journey when compared with the struggles experienced by others in the Club. After a stable childhood and schooling in Camberwell he commenced the study of Medicine at the University of Melbourne, graduating in 1973. The usual intern jobs were followed by training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology including some time working in the U.K.
He commenced practice as an obstetrician and gynaecologist with an appointment at the Monash Medical Centre during the early 1980's. At this point, he paid tribute to his wife, Caralyn, who was an enormous support and essentially ran the family for many years because of his work commitments.

Welcome to Rotary Mahroo and Weranja!
The club welcomed two new members to Rotary at the club meeting May 31st, professional couple Mahroo Parsi and Weranja Ranasinghe. Recently married, Mahroo, was born in Teheran, Iran and Weranja hails from Sri Lanka. Two young people who have already made their mark, Mahroo works in public policy development in the area of Health with the Australian Government. Which is just as well, as Weranja is an outstanding urologist working at Monash Health and is currently establishing his private practice as well.
Mahroo and Weranja, we welcome you warmly to Rotary and the Rotary Club of Glenferrie. We look forward to many years of working along side you to do good in the world.
Mahroo Parsi, second from right, and Dr Weranja Ranasinghe, were inducted into the Rotary Club of Glenferrie May 31st by President Dr Mark Ellis AM. Rotary mentor Dr Alex Marshall, right, rounds up the medico component!
Rotary Glenferrie Receives Companion Award from Australian Rotary Health
The success of the clubs' Lift the Lid Golf Day at Kingston Heath Golf Course has resulted in the awarding of a Companion Award from Australian Rotary Health. The club is proud to be a strong supporter of Australian Rotary Health, one of the largest non-government funders of mental health research in Australia. Thank you to everyone who supported this major fundraiser for the club, from organising, playing, attending the Gala Dinner or buying and selling the raffle tickets. Well done Rotary Glenferrie. You really are making a difference!
The club's collaboration with Australian Rotary Health will feature at Changeover on June 14th 2022. Book Now!: Click here.
Don't Forget to Renew your Working With Children Check
It has been some years since it became mandatory in Rotary District 9800 to hold a valid Victorian Working with Children Check, and some member's authorisations will expire this year. Normally you will receive an email from the Department of Justice reminding you to renew your registration, but it is recommended that you check,  just to make sure you remain compliant.
Renewal takes only a few minutes on the Victorian Government My Check website. However, if you miss your renewal date you will get a call from the Club Protection Officer and, let's face it, no-one wants that!
Be safe. Check now. Renew now!

Your Club Bulletin to Go One Down From Next Month
From July 2022 The Glenferrie Rotarian will not be published in the first week of the month. Given that the club does not meet in the first week on the month, the change of bulletin schedule brings it into line with the meeting schedule.
So no bulletin in the first week of the month from next month. However news stories will continue to be published as they happen and can be viewed on the ClubRunner App on your phone at any time, on the club's Facebook page and, for major stories, on the website homepage.
So no bulletin? No problem. Club news is instantly available on the ClubRunner app as soon as it is published!
