President’s Message for January & February 2019 Bulletin
 
Welcome to the first Bulletin in 2019.
Our last bulletin was for November 2018. In December, there were so many parties and holidays, most of all, the pleasant time to spend with families and friends. Trust everyone had a great festival season.
Two months passed already and below are some highlights of our club activities in January and February.
  • It is all about Service:
    We started the New Year with a Combined Service Dinner on 16 January. There were 28 service clubs and 143 people attended the event. Our guest speaker Dr Helena Popovic rocked the event with her informative and humour speech about "The Brain". She gave 15 tips to keep our brain young and healthy. One of the important tips is to serve as a volunteer. We are all volunteers and “Service Above Self”.
  • It is all about the community:
    Our first community service this year is the annual Citizenship Ceremony at the Hamilton Townhall. This year is the 17th Citizenship ceremony organised by Hamilton Rotary Club. We have welcomed hundreds of new Australian citizens in the past 17 years. This year we welcomed 25 new citizens.
  • It is all about our club and Rotary:
    A strong club is a foundation to offer services and help the community. We now have a strong board for 2019-2020 leading by President-Elect Hugh Springer. Thanks for all the members who involved in the new board election. We also had two joint meetings with our cluster clubs. One was with Nundah Rotary club on 19 February and another one was with Albion Rotary club on 26 February.
We also have a very busy March ahead:

Gary Fenner will add more meetings on Club Runner, so please check on your phone. If you have not yet downloaded the “Club Runner” App on your phone, please ask Marcel for help. It is a great App to keep all the club information at your hand. You can make phone calls and send messages from the App as well.
 
Changeover date:
Our Changeover will be a joint event with Nundah Rotary Club on 13 July Saturday this year. Thanks Norm and Travis for working on this joint event. The more details will be updated at the club meeting.

Main Projects:
We will focus on actions at the 2nd half of 2018-2019.
  1. Ivan Holm Award: Marilyn Horneman is working hard on this and It is scheduled for 26 March.
  2. Youth Project: Mike Byrne is working with local schools to promote youth projects. We will have our youth night on 2 April.
  3. Senior Citizen project: Gary O’Connor is working on a Senior Citizen project using Hamilton Seniors Trust. Please talk to Gary if you have any suggestions or ideas.
District & Cluster:
  • 28 Feb: Due date for District Membership Development Grant. We will apply for the grant to bring more members to our club.   
  • 22 – 24 March: District Conference at Grand Chancellor Hotel Brisbane. Please register at the website: https://www.conference9600.org
Rotary International Calendar:
  • 23 February: Rotary’s 114 anniversary.
  • March is Water and Sanitary Month (We had a “SPA TAP” evening on 12 February by Mary Grant)
Birthdays & Anniversaries:
Happy Birth Day in January to Glen Kinross, Marilyn Horneman and Peter McPhee. Happy Birthday to John Marr in February.
Congratulations to all. 
 
Until next month, yours in Rotary Service.
Yours in Rotary Service
