A great night was held on Friday 27th
, to have some fun and raise
some money for a very important cause, Men’s Health.
We had a few Mo Bro’s on Zoom plus some Mo Girls as well, doing
their bit. Trivia questions, raffles and auctions. Final amount raised
hasn’t been confirmed yet but the total will be a few hundred
dollars. As soon as the numbers are in, they will be printed in next
week’s Bollard. Well done and thank you to some of the guys
that stopped shaving for a month to spread the word about
men’s health.  Thanks everyone for helping
to raise money for
MOVEMBER. The final
figures raised from Members,
Family and Friends was
$775.00, and a large part of
that was raised by Mick
Toohey, member Telsa Stubna son- in- law. Well done Mick. As you
can see Mick had quite a beautiful beard happening there, but shaved
it off to raise $540 for men’s health, Great effort!
Michelle's presentation regarding all areas of Foundation was very informative.
Without foundation the final push to end polio, wouldn’t be possible.
Michelle explained that Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion Children in 122 counties from this terrible disease.
Today polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
But we need to continue because if eradication efforts stopped today within 10years polio could paralyse as many as 200.000 children each year.
Anthony mentioned how wonderful it was to be part of administering the vaccine himself to children in India while he was on a Friendship Exchange.
It makes members small weekly donation seem very worthwhile, but also to know in a small way we are part of the big picture of eradicating Polio.

A Can for the Needy in September was completed with the delivery of over 400 cans to the Salvos for distribution to Geelong's homeless.
This project involved four drop off points where people were encouraged to purchase a can or two extra with their shopping and to drop off those extras.
This came about because the Salvation Army are spending so much of their charity money on accommodation for the homeless leaving them somewhat short on food.
As a result Bayside Rotary Club took up the challange of finding lots of food with the September drop off.  
Thanks go out to any of you who were generous enough to add to that pile of cans.   
It is all appreciated
