Like many fellow Australians I arose early today to watch the televised Anzac Day dawn service from Canberra. On this most solemn of days for both our country and New Zealand we pause to remember the 102,000 Australian servicemen and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our freedoms. However due to the current restrictions this Anzac Day is being commemorated in a vastly different way to usual and ironically is was 100 years ago in 1919 the Spanish Flu had a similar effect on the events.

 

Our club continues to meet via Zoom each Tuesday and while it lacks that personal touch of our breakfasts at Piato it is however wonderful to see and hear from my Rotary friends. 

 

We held a Club Forum last Tuesday and among the many topics covered on the agenda was an update of the club’s website. I am pleased to confirm that we will be proceeding with this project and hope to have such up and running within the near future … watch this space!

 

While we all hope that our lives will return to normal soon our club like all other Rotary clubs throughout the world will have to explore different ways of fundraising so we may continue to serve our communities.
