From President Anne
Monday night we heard from Brian Smith from Mount Martha CFA. Brian gave us a great update on the renovations that are in progress and we look forward to having a meeting there later in the year.
We donated $1,000 to the CFA and Brian thanked the club for our ongoing relationship, we are hoping the MMCFA will join us at one of our Mount Martha Village BBQs.

This week we will hear from Volunteer Marine Rescue. We are blessed to have such great volunteer organisations in our community.
Please remember to send your RSVPs and meal choices to Anne Shaw by this coming Wednesday. Payment can be made on Monday night, and remember that Anne needs your main course and dessert options which are listed in this bulletin.
A big weekend with a Bunnings BBQ on Saturday and the Fusion working bee BBQ on Sunday.
Bunnings BBQ 22.6.24
With sales of $2,509 and donations of $100, we ended up with currency from SRI LANKA (2 rupees), USA (a dime), UAE (dirham), CHINA (1 yuan ) - and would you believe, someone even tried to use an old rusty washer as legal tender. 😄

Rotary was asked to assist with the BBQ at the Fusion Mayoral Charity Event with Somerville Tyabb setting up their BBQ trailer and cooking on the Friday, Mount Eliza cooking on the Saturday and Mount Martha on Sunday.
Thank you to President Dick Cox and his team from Rotary Somerville Tyabb for their BBQ and marquee.
