I was very pleased to induct Virginia Keenan as a member of our club at last Tuesday’s breakfast.  All of us welcome Virginia to our small but vibrant club and look forward to her input on our varied projects.


Our Club Forum at the same breakfast allowed members to join in the discussion on what our club has achieved and our future goals. We also viewed 2 videos which informed us on the proposed amalgamation of Sydney’s two Rotary Districts, 9685 (our district) and 9675.  After viewing these videos, we discussed the pros and cons of such amalgamation and a show of hands indicated that we did, in principal, agree with the proposal.  I will be advising our AG Ward Pollard of our agreement and all club’s in both districts will be asked for a formal vote mid-year to enable further discussions to proceed.


Our speaker on Tuesday, 12 February, Doug Cato will be a familiar face to all members and his topic will be “How to keep your house cool in Summer and warm in Winter”
