From the Editor
 
Good morning to my fellow Rotarians on this very frosty, foggy Winters morning. Well not a great deal to report this week , in fact its all very quite at present. Our Club meeting, last Wednesday evening, saw the presentation of the new proposed Rotary Club of Mornington Constitution and also the By Laws. Our Club President Ross provided a brief and concise PPT visual presentation and this assisted with the finer points of the changes / amendments. There was some discussion, on a number of points , such as approval for $$ spending at varying levels of funds, membership and associated levels and attendance of those membership classifications and a number of other " housekeeping points".  Many thanks to those " old wise heads" within the Club whose expertise pointed out a few anomalies , that were very quickly rectified , and included into the new Club's By Laws. In particular a big thanks to Victor whose years of experience in such matters as these are very much appreciated. In all the Club has a new set of Constitution Rules and associated By- Laws.  Should you wish to view the documents they can be located within our WebSite . If you go to Members Only and open up the tab Club Plan & Budget you can view these new Rules. Thanks to all those who attended the Meeting and the subsequent approved , by the quorum.

President's Update
President’s Report
 
This week’s Meeting is at 6pm on Zoom via this link 
Meeting ID: 927 056 436  Password: 294331
 
It is an open discussion about our significant new project options, led by Victor and his working group. There’s a range of options that have been identified and we genuinely want all members thoughts on which would should pursue in more detail in order to make recommendations.  
You may have seen an Article on the Bay Trail, our possible Cluster Centenary Project in the Age on Monday. (see copy attached) 
 
Our intent was to also discuss the options regarding resuming face to face meetings, but the extension of the restrictionswould seem to preclude that for a few more weeks. 
Thanks to the Members who attended last week and both approved our new Rules and By Laws (which are now on our website in the Members Only Section) and re-elected the Board including Brian as President Elect and me as President. (as someone said …how come it takes me two years to do what everyone else can do in a year ? ) 
 
Two possible Community Activities coming up that might interest you.
We have been invited to participate in Fusion’s “Sleep in Your Car” on Saturday August 1. It’s Fusion’s major Fundraising event and normally held in Mornington Park but this year you can do it in your driveway, garage etc. or even on your couch. Details at https://sleepinyourcar2020.gofundraise.com.au/
 
On Sunday October 11 we are invited to help Rotary Club of Melbourne with their support of the Smith Family by providing volunteers to help run “Around the Bay in a Day”. Recall Phil Endersbee mentioned this when he spoke to us last year. More info closer to the day. 
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday night
