Club Project
As mentioned in this weeks Presidents Report being in the middle of a very cold and wet Winter has resulted in, those Club Members who have not "escaped to the Northern States ", leaving the rest of us having to resort to going into "hibernation" we find ourselves in the midst of a very reduced Club Activity period, so it was pleasing to see after so much admin/ paperwork desk shuffling a bit of action within The Mornington Park pertaining to The Roof Over The Long Table, even if it only be a Security Fence to border off the upcoming work site.
Club Meetings
With the "Winter Theme" of our Club Meetings of The Old and The New Members Bio's, last week we were pleased to listed to John Parkinson and Brian Mann provide us with a brief overview of their life in general. With John it was very evident he was a man of all matters financial as he has spent a great deal of his working life within the Banking environment and his reflection of the gone by days of hand written ledgers and somewhat time consuming, but still very effective ways in which he went about his banking duties was very interesting. Within Rotary John has been an active Member for some 28 yrs. Looking at our Club John has held "just about every Board Position" and has served as our President on two seperate occasions. From Johns presentation it was very evident that he certainly has an enormous wealth of knowledge and experience in all things Rotary and financial.
We then heard from our current Club President, Brian Mann, who informed us of his younger years of growing up in inner city Melbourne and his reflections of his teenage years, before being "offered" the opportunity to seek a career in the Air Force. Brian served at a number of ADF locations around Australia and finally settling in for a lengthy stay at the ADF Tri Service Physical Training School at HMAS Cerberus. Brian's evolvement within Rotary has to some extent been an extension to his 42 year ADF Career, in serving both country and Community and has only been a Rotarian for a relatively short period of time, only some 5 yrs.

At this weeks Club Meeting, tomorrow evening, Wednesday 13th July 2022, we have the pleasure to invite as our Guest Speaker, Kate Horton, who is the current Director of our own local Farrells Bookshop. Kate will be speaking on the Business and also on the topic relating of the effects both pre and post COVID, on its impact of our Business environment.

With another Rotary Year commencing across all levels of Rotary within every Worldwide Club and also at the highest Governance we now see  our new RI President. Jennifer E. Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, has been nominated to become Rotary International’s president for 2022-23, a selection that will make her the first woman to hold that office in the organization’s 115-year history. A current Rotary Foundation trustee, Jones has been a member since 1997 and has served Rotary as vice president, director, training leader, committee chair, moderator, and district governor.
Presidents Report - 12th July 2022
With Mornington and for that matter Melbourne under the grip of a very cold, damp and somewhat gloomy Winter we naturally see a falloff in the overall activities from Bunnings BBQ’s to hands on Projects and even our Weekly Club Meetings, so with this week’s Presidents Report is a bit scant on content. 
However, there are a few things on the radar:
Mornington Rotary Recognition
Last week I received a very pleasing e-mail from Fran Chambers who was doing a “clean-up “at home and came across a special acknowledgment presented to our Club.
“Brian, I have found an “Order of Australian” Award that was given to The Rotary Club of Mornington for ‘Their invaluable contribution and service to our community and participation in the celebration of community multi-faith service June 2012’
It was held at the Peninsula Community Theatre June 17, 2012 “.
This is a very pleasing item of special importance and I will arrange to collect the Award for display at our Clubs upcoming meetings, a big thanks to Fran, well done
Youth & Schools
With the prospect of moving forward from the severe restrictions of COVID in regards to our Schools and Youth activities may see us in the future becoming more involved with hands on projects. To this end District have initiated a:  Insurance and Youth Protection Zoom Training Sun 31 July 2022 at 7.00pm
Rotary has a fantastic range of youth programs and we need to be mindful of our responsibility to keep all youth safe.  Rotary International strives to create and maintain a safe environment for all youth who participate in Rotary activities. To the best of their ability, Rotarians, Rotaractors, Rotarians’ spouse, and partners, and other volunteers must safeguard the children and young people they may come into contact with, and protect them from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. (Rotary Code of Policies 2.100.1 Youth Protection).
At the recent District - Club Development Summit and Assembly on 1st May 22, the Insurance and Youth Protection processes, including the Club’s responsibility around obtaining Working with Children Cards, Youth Volunteer Information and Declaration Form and keeping of a Register of Volunteers, was explained and discussed.  However, many Clubs could not attend.  We are now offering another opportunity to hear about this important information.  
A Zoom training session has been scheduled for Sun 31 July 2022 at 7.00pm.
Zoom log-on details are as follows:
Meeting ID: 865 2453 3191
Passcode: 044143 
You may be asked for the Passcode if prompted for entry
Understanding the Club’s responsibility to both Insurance and Youth Protection policies is important and Clubs are encouraged to arrange for at least one club representative to attend this session.
