Message from our President

This week will see us getting back into the swing of things with a board meeting and our first club meeting tomorrow, the 20th. I'd like to remind everyone of of our Australia Day event at Karkarook Park, being run as a cluster event with the Mordialloc and Moorabbin RC’s.
I sent out the flyer a few days ago and you'll see it it again below. Helen N has been working hard with the other clubs putting the whole event together. Lets hope the weather does the right thing and supports us on the day.
See you all tomorrow.
