Presidential Musings
So the club moves on – It is almost like opening the front door and the back door simultaneously to let the new year in and the old year out!!  A Scottish New Year tradition at Hogmanay, which we learnt about when my family lived in Glasgow in 90 and 91.
Our Changeover on last Tuesday night was a great night of fellowship, and a celebration of our club’s years’ achievementsWe had over 100 people attending for the big friendship event on our calendar. We had many notables from the Rotary hierarchy, the Boroondara Council as well as politicians of many persuasions. Thanks particularly to Richard Blakeman, we had a fast paced informative night of entertainment, which ably displayed our club’s worth. Feedback from one non Rotarian was that the presentations strongly showed Rotary’s relevance to our community, which I felt was a good indictment of our position in our society. Rotarians do make a difference.
Changeover 2022 a Night of Fun and Celebration
Changeover 2022 at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club on June  14th will long be remembered as one of the best ever Changeover dinners at The Rotary Club of Glenferrie. In a night that celebrated the impressive achievements of the club over the past year, over one hundred Rotarians and guests, including the District Governor and three past district governors, with Mr John Kennedy MP, Member for Hawthorn, and Councillor Jane Addis, the Mayor of Boroondara, witnessed President Dr Mark Ellis AM hand over the president's chain of leadership to incoming president Teresa Liu. District Governor Dale Hoy delivered the District Report.  It was an impressive night, with much fun and friendship and a well paced, entertaining program that made full use of the new meeting rooms and facilities at Kooyong.

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!
Camberwell Art Show - Rotary Club Meeting 27/06
The Board has decreed that we will run our normal club meeting instead of Kooyong TC, but as a social night at the Camberwell Art Show which is being held at the Advanced Technology Centre of Swinburne University. So, Tuesday night 28th from 6.00 pm onwards. Entry fee is $15, and wine and cheese are provided.  
From Murray Anderson   - The Chair of the Camberwell Art Show
“To purchase tickets, please go to the website www.camberwellartshow.org.au and select the Tickets Page. Then select Evening Sessions and choose the appropriate date (in your case 28 June). Can you advise your members that, although we will be able to process cash and credit card payment on the night, we encourage purchasing tickets as above, so we get an idea of numbers for catering purposes.’
The plan is then to meet for a meal after at 8.00 pm. Since the Glenferrie Hotel is just down the road, I propose to book one or two tables for us to go there at about 0800 pm. I will need an idea of numbers in the week coming up so to book enough space. Please let me know if intending to come to the hotel.

Ukraine Concert - North Melbourne Rotary
How did the seed of an idea to run a small local concert in North Melbourne to raise funds for the Ukraine crisis, grow into a concert in the Melbourne Town Hall, with over 700 people attending and raising so far $29,000?
As I (Ted) was singing with the Homebrew Verandah singers, this idea took hold that I could help my Ukraine family along with my cousins both in Poland and Ukraine. My Rotary Club loved the idea so I approached the Ukraine community, to invite their amazing choir and dance group Lehanda who also brought in the Association of Australian Ukraine in Victoria (AUV).
June is Fellowship Month
Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
