As another Rotary year ends, we now look to the future to “Imagine” what Rotary will and can do in the future.  Several challenges remain:

•District and Club succession


•Implementing change to meet our community’s expectations

•Regionalisation Pilot Program

•Increasing our work in the Environment focus of Rotary

•Increase use of technologies

Focus on these will enable Rotary to have more impact whilst at the same time expand our reach.

“Small seeds, that are fertilised, watered and have rays of sunshine showering them with warmth and hope result in productive, supportive forests. “
This analogy can articulate the wonderful Environment gathering on Monday 6th June for the clubs from Groups 9 and 10 to celebrate World Environment Day.
The evening was hosted by a small group of committed environment Rotarians Maggie Isom - Torquay, Barb Sheehan - Highton, Linda Carr - Geelong Central, Aileen Brown - Bayside, Stephen Yewdall - Geelong West, Beryl McMillan - Geelong and Rhonda Anchen - Torquay
102 people attended the event, including  DG John Clue from Port Fairy,   Assistant Governor Group 10 David Sykes, Chair of the District 9780 Environment Committee David Sanders from Wendouree breakfast ,  Jed Castle from Interact  & Djilang Rotaractors.  
Displays from OZ FISH, Rotarians for Bees , Bee Hotels , Lids for Kids , posters  to give away – e waste bags  were just some of the things that Rotarians could take away from the event.
Fun was had with social bingo as an icebreaker – asking attendees to find answers to a suite of environment actions, which encouraged great mingling and chats.
