ROTARY CLUB OF BEAUMARIS WEEKLY BULLETIN Number 25 24 December 2018

President’s Report Next Meetings


We celebrated the end of the year with a fantastic party on THURSDAY 17 JANUARY 2019
Thursday night. We welcomed 80 guests, including our AG
Lorraine Nicholas, three Hon members, and guests Margot,
Mark, Gail and partners. At Beaumaris Rotary we know how to
have a jolly good time. The tables decorations looked beauti-
ful. Thanks to the VGC for the delicious Christmas feast, and
to Megan for the flashing hats. Debra’s delightful music enter-
tained us during the night, and Santa and his helper were wel-
come visitors, delivering Kris Kringle gifts to everyone. But the
highlight of the night was the Christmas Message from the
Board that brought the house down. It was a complete sur-
prise and cleverly put together by Bob McArthur. We ex- SEE MAP PAGE 5.
pressed our gratitude to Margaret Mognahan and the Victoria
Golf Club staff for the excellent service, the great food and the
friendly relationships that we have with them.
I would like to acknowledge the contributions from our mem-
bers and partners who have given their time and have support-
ed our many projects during the past 6 months. We give our
support in different ways. It could be jumping out of a warm
bed at 5 am to set up the BBQ and the marquees at the Farm-
ers Market, or getting hot and sweaty cooking the sausage
sizzle, or chatting to the shoppers and stallholders. It’s about
the many hours that our golf day team spent negotiating and
planning to secure The Bayside Charity Golf Day, a huge suc-
cess for both Beaumaris Rotary and the Black Rock Sports
Auxiliary. We are seen out and about in the local community
at events such as the Concourse Car Show, the Christmas
festivals at Beaumaris and Black Rock, and selling daffodils at
the Concourse for the Cancer Council. We continue to support Unless stated otherwise venue is

Congratulations to the Graduating Class


of 2018

Last week, 21 extraordinary young people from


remote Top End and regional Victorian communi-
ties celebrated the completion of their MITS
year, cheered on by family members who travelled to
Melbourne for the occasion. In 2018 each of these
students has taken on the immense challenge of
schooling away from home, acted as ambassadors for
their communities, and enriched our community here
in Melbourne.

Again this year our students have grown and learned


through so many wonderful partnerships: they've told
their stories through stop-motion animation with Swin-
burne University's Marngo Designing Future program,
learned on-country with Indigenous rangers at the
Royal Botanic Gardens, tried their hand at cooking
new cuisines with food&desire and taken on new chal-
lenges with the Outdoor Education Group.

Through these experiences, and consistent classroom


learning, they are ready to step into their new Partner
Schools and continue their educational journeys in
Melbourne. Next year, we welcome four new Partner
Schools: Firbank Grammar School, Siena College,
Forest Hill College and Ruyton Girls' School.

You can catch up on everything the students have


been doing through our recent newsletters, and via
our MITS Facebook page. You can also watch
a short Channel 7 News story on our Richmond Foot-
ball Club Graduation Lunch.

Our alumni have been taking on amazing challenges
