Message from our President

“Serve to Change Lives”
On Wednesday evening of last week following an invitation from the organisers of RYLA, I took the opportunity to attend the online learning forum for this program. It was also a great way to maintain contact and connection with our RYLA sponsored participant, Claire O’Brien. Not to mention for myself to enjoy some of the opportunities the wider family of Rotary provides.
The program for this evening had two keynote speakers. Firstly, Charles Kovess who talked to the topic of “Harnessing Passion”- in other words the Psychology of Leadership. One of his key take home messages for me was - We all have a conscious mind which is controlled by our five senses. Its balance comes from Mental, Physical and Spiritual goals. However, it only controls one seventh of our mind space. Our Sub Conscious mind controls the other six seventh’s of our mind and is unique to every individual – perhaps that is our struggle in understanding others points of view. !!!
The second speaker, Helen Mac, spoke to “Optimising Outcomes”. Helen’s talk provided some great clues as to how you go about optimising your outcomes.Two key messages I took from her are:
-    Hope is not a strategy
-    The life you live is a result of the choices you make.
I am looking forward to further RYLA involvement when the face-to-face component is on, 29th June to 2nd July.
Claire O’Brien is certainly honouring our club’s sponsorship for her to attend RYLA, having attended twice in the last month for Sunday market duty and planning on coming to the evening club meetings that we will be programming (work prevents morning meetings).
Our club’s sponsorship of Rotary program NYSF, National Youth Science Forum, was shown off in great light at last week’s meeting when Tilde and Monique presented their reports after participating in the program this year. Karin Soster has written a great summary of the girls report in the club report this week, so no need for me to add further except to comment that our future is in good hands after listening to these two young ladies articulate their plans.
I commend the Youth Rotary programs that are designed to inspire our leaders of tomorrow.
Just a reminder about the Art Auction, taking place on Saturday 7th May at the Bentleigh Club, 5.00pm – 10.00pm. Catering included with drinks at bar prices. Cost is $40.00
Under the hammer will be Auctioneer Extraordinaire, Mr. Tim Lynch.
The following day Mother’s Day we have plans to conduct a stall at our market raising funds for Breast Cancer. More information to follow.
At this week’s meeting along with our guest speaker Mariam Issa, who is talking on “The Sensory Garden” we will also be welcoming Sandringham Hospital staff as we present our donation for the purchase of their External Pacemaker.
Warm regards
President Helen Nodrum

World Immunization Week: Vaccines keep communities healthy
From the RI website here
Our progress in the fight against polio shows why vaccination is important
Increasing awareness about the power of vaccines and closing immunization gaps could protect millions of people worldwide from vaccine-preventable diseases, including polio, according to the World Health Organization. World Immunization Week, 24-30 April, is an opportunity to focus on that work, and the robust polio eradication infrastructure built by Rotary and our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) provides a model for it.
Member and ANZAC day
Member Neville Kruss attended a service at the Glen Waverley RSL on Sunday and marched on ANZAC day to the shrine.
