The meeting was held at ‘The Healy’, a newly built retirement complex at the corner of South Road and Healy Street Moorabbin. Sue Loeliger was our host.
President Helen welcomed Leonie Ryan and thanked Sue for hosting the meeting. Helen then updated members on matters relating to the club and the board meeting held on 8 February.
The club has acquired an Eptfos machine which will initially be used for club meetings and events.
The club’s commitment to assist in the Storm Recovery Festival in 27 February.
Some details on the District conference on March 25 and 26.
The Board voted unanimously to donate an old money spinner to the Rotary club of Whittlesea.
Sue Loeliger then presented an overview of The Healy. She indicated that it took 7 years to purchase the properties required for the development and complete construction. The complex has 54 , one, two and three bedroom self contained units. A unit has been set aside for use as a “hotel” unit.
Facilities include an 18 seat cinema, lounge, TV room, library, kitchen and dining facilities for all residents. There is also a courtyard with a BBQ, and a mens shed. The complex also has a gym and wine storage facilities for each unit. Sue then outlined the complexities of the purchase price, service fees, management fees and exit fees, which required individual negotiation. A tour of some apartments was offered to members after the meeting.
Sergeant John then collected the ‘legacy’ fines and stressed the importance of face masks.
