2022-2023 Club Change Over Function.
Last week our Club presented our 2022/2023 Annual Change Over Function. This special event was held at Beleura House and Garden and from all accounts of comments on the night and the many follow up correspondence, over the past week, the evening was a fantastic success. Our host for the evening was the Manager, Mr Martin Green, and along with his team whereby we were afforded the use of the Melba Room. The evening was the customary setting to reflect on the past year, acknowledge the wonderful work undertaken by the 2021- 2022 Board, introduce the new incoming 2022-2023 Club Board, highlight a number of significant projects conducted throughout the year and to acknowledge and recognise the service of Club Members retiring from Mornington Rotary. Our Club were very appreciative to have our 9820 Immediate Past DG, Bill Degnan who was accompanied by his wife Judy and also to have the new incoming President of Mt Eliza Rotary Club, John Welsh accompanied by his wife Ingrid attend the evening.
The highlight of the evening was the formal acknowledgment of the retirement of three very long standing and much respected Club Members in Fran Chambers, Victor Sullivan and John Renowden.
All three retirees were presented a number of awards being Paul Harris Fellow with Sapphire Pins. Ian Horton and John Parkinson presented the members Bio's and to say the least their serve to Rotary across all spheres was absolutely amazing. Between the three retirees they combined in providing 98yrs of loyal and dedicated Service to Rotary.
Our past and also incoming President for 2022-2023, Brian Mann, introduced the Club's New Board with some familiar faces electing to serve a second term in different roles and also the introduction of a new face on Club Board, being Cameron Guymer who will be our new Community and Vocational Chair. The 2022-2023 Mornington Rotary Club Board is:

Australian Rotary Health Fund-Raising Appeal
Some two months ago our Club as a result of a Project, proposed by Ross Kilborn, initiated a Fund-Raising project to generate financial contributions throughout the whole of our 9820 Rotary District for the purpose of contributing to Australian Rotary Health and specifically to Mental Health, that has now become a major focus within ARH.  The proposal was that Mornington Rotary would contribute/match a Dollar for Dollar basis that would be donated by all our fellow 9820 Clubs. The Fund Raising project was somewhat curtailed by time restraints and individual Clubs financial status but never the less this did not stop Rotary Clubs from coming onboard and raising a great amounts of funds for this extremely worthwhile and vital focus of our modern society. As of Close of Business for this FY we can announce the fantastic sum of $12,400.00 was raised from our fellow Rotary Clubs and as a result of this Mornington Rotary will match this combined amount which will now result in a grand total of $24,800.00 being donated to ARH. Mornington Rotary would like to extend a very big thanks to all those clubs in our District that were able to help out and donate funds, this is very much appreciated.

Club Change Over Function
On Wednesday of last week our Club hosted its 2022/2023 Change Over Function at the magnificent Belerua House and Garden.  From all accounts of those who attended and the numerous phone calls and e-mail message I have received have conveyed to me that the evening was a tremendous success. Events of this importance would not be possible without the hard work and planning of a number of our Club Members and I would like to formally acknowledge the great work done in enabling this evening to come to fruition.
To Victor Sullivan for his proposal and subsequent planning over the past two months working closely alongside with the Manager of Belerua House, Mr Martin Green and his support team, culminated in a wonderful evening. The setting, the food, the refreshments and the service were of an outstanding quality. Victor’s very experienced eye for detail, in every respect was the key to the success of the evening.
To Ian Horton in his no nonsense and very professional obligation’s, behind the scenes tasks, to ensure all the admin requirements for the evening went very smoothly indeed, and the very, very important aspect of ensuring our much respected three long serving members were afforded the District and RI awards. 
I would also like to extend a very, very big thanks to our new Treasurer, Pam Hall for all her assistance in the lead up to the evening, and her professional duties as our MC, on the night. Pam took on this role with enthusiasm and her attention to detail and the Rotary Protocols was excellent.
To Cameron Guymer, a big thanks, to our new 2022/2023 Community Chair, who was “thrust into the spotlight” and delivered an earnest Rotary Toast to which our Immediate Past DG, Bill Degnan responded.
And to John Parkinson and Ian Horton for delivering a very heartfelt Bio on our three very respected and admired long serving members. Their account of Fran, Victor and John’s amazing service and contribution to Rotary was presented in an extremely sincere and enlightening manner, well done Gents.
Weekly Club Meeting – Menu Updates
As we are only to acutely aware the financial changes ( especially in regards to Primary Produce) we are 
now experiencing which have resulted in the increase to our Weekly Meeting Dinner Fee’s, to $25.00 per Member/ Guest per meal. To provide a wider range of choices I have approached the Mornington Hotel Manager who has agreed to provide our Members with the full range of Senior Meals on the Hotel Menu, rather than our current 5 only choices, and also, we now have two of the Vegetarian Choice’s to add to this. The new Menu Selections will be displayed on the Welcome Desk Attendance Sheet at this week’s Club Meeting, commencing 06th July 2022.
Rotary Down Under
As we move into an ever-increasing world of Technology some of the more traditional methods of receiving communication are now tending to be sent via Electronic Media. Rotary is no exception and the need to move forward and to “keep up with the times“, will now see the receipt via Surface Mail of the monthly editions of the RDU Magazine will now sent out and be received via e-mail.
