A Word from the President

Last week’s speaker, Judy O’Donohue, spoke inspiringly about jobs and young people. More of that inside. Just the sort of person we would love to have in our Club!

 

Max Chester has been heavily involved in a project with a group of Turkish Rotarians who are coming to Melbourne for Anzac Day next year. Last week I received an email from our Assistant District Governor, Bruce Anderson, seeking expressions of interest for hosting these Rotarians for a few days. At the Board Meeting on Tuesday, we decided that we would like to be involved, so I have advised him accordingly. Obviously the details are very sketchy, but it could be a wonderful exercise.

 

Our numbers are still very low, although some of the wandering members are returning. Please make an effort to join us on Monday. Tony Sheilds from the Rotary Club of Greensborough will talk to us about his business which is buying and selling stamps and coins. Who knows, that collection from your childhood might even be worth a ‘few bob”!

 

Vasko’s are unavailable on 2 October, so we shall take the opportunity to follow up our recent connection with RSL on Bell and meet there instead. Pencil it in – it is only 2 weeks away.

Judy O'Donahue

Guest Speaker:  Monday 18th September 2017

 

Judy gave us an excellent presentation entitled “Future Careers for Young People” in which she provided a wealth of valuable information regarding current global impacts, future employment trends, employer expectations and what young people need to do to “get on”.   She also had advice on what we can do as parents and grandparents to help.

Judy’s own background, education and life experience make her an ideal Careers advisor and her enthusiasm for life and her positive attitude shone through.

Thank you Judy for an inspirational address.
