Presidential Musings
The foundation upon which Rotary is built is friendship; on no less firm foundation could it have stood”.  Paul Harris
Changeover Date – Our Changeover is tomorrow nightWe have over 100 people attending for the big friendship event on our calendar. This is a function not to be missed. Thanks to Richard, we have a fast paced informative night of entertainment to do our club proud. Such a large number is probably the result of people going to make sure “I am really going” or Teresa our upcoming President is very popular!!

Club to Make a Second Royce Abbey Award at Changeover
A number of Paul Harris Fellow Recognitions will be awarded at Changeover on Tuesday night, in recognition of the outstanding contributions over the past year by some very dedicated Rotarians. The Paul Harris Fellow Recognition is named after Paul Harris, the Founder of Rotary. At Changeover this year, the club will also, for the second time, honour a Rotarian for his or her enthusiasm and commitment to the ideals of Rotary with the presentation of a Royce Abbey Award. But who is this extraordinary Rotarian, Royce Abbey, after whom the award is named, and just what is the Royce Abbey Award?
Here is one extraordinary Rotarian receiving his award from Past Rotary International President Ian Riseley. Come along to Changeover on Tuesday and find out the rest.
David Abbey will be at Changeover 2022 to assist with the presentation of the award to a Glenferrie Rotarian. To learn more about the Royce and Jean Abbey Scholarship program, click here.
MUNA - Model United Nations Assembly
MUNA stands for Model United Nations Assembly, which simulates the workings of the UN Assembly by having teams of two senior students from each of a number of schools represent a particular UN country in debates on matters of world political and social concern. It is a Rotary International program and enthusiastically supported by the United Nations.
Who Can be involved in MUNA
MUNA is designed for school students usually in senior classes of secondary schools. Over the years they have primarily come from year 11 students. A team consists of the two students. More than 1 team per school is possible.
Where MUNA will be Held
In 2022 MUNA will be held on the weekend Saturday June 18 to Sunday 19, 2022 at the Mercure Hotel, North Melbourne.
We are entering two teams

Siena College

Students are Abbie Brownless and Sophia Velasquez. They will represent Italy.

Sacre Couer
Phoebe Burke and Polly Hara. They will represent China.
Rotary International Convention Melbourne  - 2023
The last time an RI Convention was in Melbourne was in 1993 and those who were part of it, remember the occasion. This is an opportunity for local Rotarians to experience a Rotary Convention for ourselves right here in our own backyard and share our great city with other Rotarians from all around the world. So why should you attend?  An International Convention brings home the true internationality of Rotary, you meet some great people, there are opportunities to talk about projects and despite the different races, gender, etc. just how similar we are.

David and I were two of the 60+ District 9800 Rotarians who travelled to Chicago for the 100 years of Rotary in 2005. It was fabulous. Another more recent memory is the thrill of hearing hundreds of us in Toronto singing I am Australian (amongst thousands of other Rotarians) as Ian Riseley (past RI President from Melbourne) walked onto the stage.
Camberwell Art Show - Club Meeting - 28/06
Camberwell Art Show – The Board has decreed that we will run our normal club meeting as a social night at the Camberwell Art Show instead of at Kooyong LTC. The Art Show 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. 
“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. 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.
