President’s Message
A new year, a new beginning.
Who would have thought that we will be talking about the same health issues in 2022 but this time it’s closer to home! Several members, families and close friends have already been infected and I wish you all a speedy recovery.
On a positive note, Rotary kicks off again on the 19th January at our new venue the Mercure Hotel which I am looking forward to.
The night will be informal, and partners are welcome and for those that couldn’t make the cocktail party last year, they missed a great night however we will be doing a tour of the hotel to familiarise ourselves with the facilities available.
Barry and I met with the hotel on Monday to sample the food and set the menu for the meetings going forward, hopefully everyone will be happy and we have been successful in keeping prices the same as last year with the addition of desert.
We received great feedback from the recipients of the hampers that everyone prepared at our last meeting. Hopefully we can continue this tradition now and look for similar projects that we all can get involved in on the night, I enjoyed it and the buzz in the room showed that it was a success. A special thankyou to those that went out of their way to purchase the goods and deliver the hampers.
Our next event will be the Bunnings BBQ on Saturday followed by the “Australia Day Lunch” which I will provide more information on later.
Happy New year everyone and Stay Safe!
Remember if you feel sick or have symptoms stay home and get tested
 
Yours In Rotary
Brendon Woods
President RCD

BUNNINGS Doncaster BBQ January 15
With the help of a cast of thousands from RC Doncaster, Manningham Rotaract and Kiwanis we raised over $600 on the day.
Hi Team (Anthony, Barry, Brendon, David G, Graeme, Joady, Niranjan, Paul, Liz, Kevin, Rod, Alma, Tony, Sonja - and Bruce)
Thank you so much for giving your time and energy yesterday.  It really is very gladdening (is there such a word?) to see such a positive response from so many members. Although - I’m not sure there would be many more enjoyable things you could do on a Saturday (!)
And it was great to meet our new members James and Grace Bae (and their new baby) who called in to say hello.
So not a bad result - but not great either.  But then, we had the new Covid concerns and a range of mitigating factors working against us today.
David McIvor

Welfare
While we’re getting on with the business of helping others, let’s take a moment to remember our fellow Members, Partners and Friends of the Club, who may be doing it a little tough.
We’re also thinking of our long-term absent Members whom we don’t see often enough.
I’m sure all of us know an absent or ex Member who would love to have a call from any one of us as Members of the Rotary Club of Doncaster.
If you do know anyone who is unwell, or is going through challenging times, or even if you’re up against it yourself, contact our Welfare Officer, PP Frank Evans on 9337 8493, or email frank.evans1@bigpond.com.
