A Word from the President
“Last week I had the great pleasure of inducting two new members namely Noel Sturgeon and Emma Jane De Luca. Noel, a former member of the Rotary Club of Hawthorn, has been a regular attender over the last couple of months so most members would have had an opportunity to be introduced and to get to know him. He will join the International Service Committee. Emma Jane is Giuseppe's daughter and has attended several meetings. She will join the Vocational Service Committee. I encourage all members to get to know her and to make both of these new members feel welcome. I also encourage everyone to seek out people who may be candidates for membership.
At the last two meetings there have been only 12 or so in attendance. Whilst we do have a number of members away we do need to consider the position of Vasko's. It is unfair if they open for us especially, anticipating perhaps 20 coming along. If you know that you are not going to be able to attend please let us know.
As members may recall I have come back from 10 days in Bali. One thing that struck me (apart from the weather shock when we returned) was the unending courtesy of the local drivers. Not once did we hear a blasting car horn. Any time a driver wished to change lanes all to enter from a side street all they did was to indicate and then move slowly. Other drivers would let them in, sometimes with a soft “beep” from one or the other. What a contrast to our roads! If only our motorists would behave in the same fashion. Our road toll and the blood pressure of the drivers would undoubtedly be reduced substantially.”
