President's Message: April 2021

Greetings friends and colleagues, I trust you enjoyed the recent long Easter weekend - I'm all refreshed for a busy April ahead! Our first April gathering last Wednesday was a different take on our regular "Member Behind the Badge" evening.  It was a special night with several of us sharing our musical talents. Andrew McFarland and myself entertained with several songs by the Beatles and Neil Diamond, and the audience jumped in with some enthusiastic singing!

Here's how we (rock and) roll in Rotary!

Special night at Rotary with two of our people sharing their musical talents, Felix Wong and Andrew McFarland, rock on with the Beatles and Neil Diamond. David Shrimpton also featured his piano playing which he has been doing these last 3 years to improve his dexterity.

Are you interested in who lives, works and plays in Manningham?  

Do you want to know how the local population will be changing in the years to come? Will understanding more about the wellbeing needs of the community help you plan your program or service better? Then join Vicki Martinez from the Rotary Club of Templestowe for an interactive session on who makes up Manningham, what they do and what their needs are.

What do you know about Manningham Youth Services?

Join us as we hear about Manningham Youth Services from Chris Milne. Manningham Youth Services (MYS) offers a community-inclusive youth service that aims to improve the health and well-being of all young people who live, work, study or are otherwise connected to the Manningham municipality.
