On Monday night we had a Vocational Service visit to Arthur Reed Photographics in place of our normal meeting. Michael provided those attending with an informative and entertaining tour of his place of business. He gave all of us an insight into the influence of technology over time in the business of photography. Members asked a number of technical questions and were given comprehensive responses. At the end of the evening members retired to the canteen for some excellent food prepared by our usual caterer. On behalf of the Club I would like to extend a special vote of thanks to all of those who had a hand in organising the night
Yours in Rotary Service,
Rotary Club of Torquay
TORQUAY ROTARY CLUB is again joining in the global fight against cancer.
By being part of OUR TEAM ROTARY you’re helping people from diagnosis and treatment, to recovery and beyond.
You are all affected by cancer – either knowing someone dear to you who has cancer, or having been affected yourself
Last week some of our team members took part in a tin rattling session as a fundraiser for our Relay Team and today Mary & I were busy selling tickets for the Relay for Life Hamper at the Cowrie Market.
If you wish to participate in the Relay you will first be required to register for the event.Registration will cost you $20 for which you will receive your 2014 RFL shirt to wear on the day.
We are 99% of the way to a polio-free world – truly, “this close” to eradicating polio forever. On 24 October, help us get closer by spreading the word about our fight to End Polio Now with our communities and the world. Here’s how:
Share Rotary’s fight to end polio with local government officials and use this opportunity to encourage them to support the global commitment to a polio free world. Download advocacy and event resources.
Show your support for polio eradication on social media and let your friends know that you want to end polio with this new End Polio Now graphic.
Host your own event on 24 October and add your voice to the conversation with the hashtag #WorldPolioDay.
Our global network of volunteers has helped the vast majority of the world end polio. On World Polio Day, let’s show the world that when Rotarians start something, they finish it. Let’s end polio now.

Rotary International President-nominee

Notifying someone about changes to your meeting attendance is your responsibility!
Our meetings have catered dinners, so if you are unable to attend a meeting, or if your partner is unable to attend a designated Partner's Night, YOU MUST ADVISE us of your or your partner’s absence. This also applies if you are attending the meeting but not dining.
There are two ways to do this, either record the information in advance in the "Apology Book" that is available at each meeting or telephone 03-5222-2022. An answering service operates out of hours.
All apologies must be made no later than 9.00AM on the Monday of the meeting (unless other arrangements were addressed in the Bulletin).
If no apology is recorded by that time, the absentee member will be issued with an invoice to pay the Club the dinner fee of $25 for your non-attendance, and/or that of your partner if it is an official Partner's Night.
REMEMBER on "Partners Nights" it is assumed that you partner IS attending unless you apologise for them!
Remember if you are bringing guests or your partner (to a non-partner night) you need to notify us of the extra number of persons who will be attending.
Absence on travel is not an excuse. It must be recorded beforehand in the “Apology Book”.
