Bulletin No. 50 – From the President
Hello everyone
As this is the last Bulletin for this year, I would like to say thank you to each and every one of you for your efforts, involvement, enthusiasm, friendship and support through this year.  We have achieved a lot, as represented in the District Citation presented to us by District Governor Stephen on Monday night.  I hope you are pleased with our achievements and proud of the Rotary Club of Torquay. We are a testament to Rotary Serving Humanity.
A special thank you to Greg Plumridge and Rudi Schols for putting together and publishing this Bulletin every week.  It is not always a simple task and is a constant one.  Yet again, you have done us proud.
PLEASE NOTE:- There will be no Bulletin published next weekend, The next issue will be published in the week after Changeover of our Club Executive.
Our 100th Birthday party for Rotary Foundation
Thank you to everyone who came along to our meeting this week and celebrated 100 years of doing good in the world through our Rotary Foundation.  It was a pleasure to welcome so many guests and there was so much to talk and think about with the Foundation history, the End Polio Now presentation by Chris Sims, key insights from our District Governor Stephen Lamont, the presentation to our newest Paul Harris Fellow, Rose Hodge and, of course, the cake.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
RSL Cheque Presentation
It was pleasing to present Ian Gilbank from the RSL with a Cheque for $3,000 being the proceeds of our Club's efforts from Raffle ticket sales and donations from Program distribution at this years ANZAC Dawn Service. This amount was significantly down on the 2016 amount due to the weather conditions and the introduction of the inaugural Geelong Dawn Service.
Here is a thank you from Rotary Foundation for our club donation this year.
Thank you for your recent gift to The Rotary Foundation.  As our Foundation celebrates 100 years of Doing Good in the World, we are especially grateful for donors like you, who empower Rotarians to make a meaningful difference in the lives of people in need.
Do you want to see how your gift makes a difference? Watch this.
