Warning Signs of a Heart Attack (Oct 18)

Members, Partners & Friends are most welcomed to join us in this important session.

Warning signs may not be what you think. They can vary from person to person, and they may not always be sudden or severe.

It’s vital to get treatment fast, to limit damage to your heart. If you experience the warning signs of a heart attack, call Triple Zero (000) immediately and ask for an ambulance.

Our speaker will share with us the key information, and what many don’t  realise – the symptoms are different for women and men, so this is a key opportunity to share this meeting with a significant other in your life.

Satellite Rotary Clubs & member engagement (Oct 11)

What is a satellite club?  It is defined as “potential club whose members shall also be members of the sponsor club”.

But that’s the technical speak.

DGN Shia Smart will explain all and share with us the success that has been enjoyed to date across our district with the initiation and establishment of satellite clubs.

Plan your questions and join us for an evening which will provide an insight into how our club can expand to better serve the City of Manningham.
