Bulletin Jan 22, Vol 78 , Issue No 1
Greetings to all Rotarians and Friends!
While we are still waiting for summer to come, we will farewell 2023 with some photos from our Christmas celebration, as many members and their partners enjoyed our Christmas dinner and presentation evening. Geoff Cuthbert’s many decades of service were acknowledged and celebrated, and Past President Brian Mann and Mornington Railway Society’s Andrew Swaine were honoured with Paul Harris Fellowships for their contributions to the community.
Stephen Todd, from Volt Farmer, was our last guest speaker for 2023. 
Stephen gave a very interesting outline of the Dromana Shared Value Regenerative Solar Farm project.
Now to 2024!
Our Mornington Rotary Art Show Gala Opening, where the art works were combined with great music, delicious food and wine, and good company, provided a chance to celebrate and be first to choose a new work for home or the office.
The Art Show is open from 10am -5pm until January 26.

Mornington Railway Station Update from Ross Kilburn
Before Christmas we received permission from VicTrack to clean up the dead vegetation at the corner of Yuilles and Watts Roads, and plant some new native plants. We are now waiting on a quote from Naturelinks, the Council’s contractor, to do this. The estimate is $4000. Even though we finally got Council confirmation, this work is on what is Victrack land and does not need Council permission, however it is Council grant money we are spending. We are proposing to give the balance of the grant money, $6000, to the Railway Society to go towards the replacement and updating of all their signage.
Our first club meeting for 2024 will be held on Wednesday, January 31, and Andrew Swaine will tell us more about the Mornington Tourist Railway projects. All Rotary members, friends, and family will be made welcome.
