Fish and chip night meeting.
The Geelong Boat House “Bon voyage celebration for Connor”
As the first meeting of the new year the Bayside Geelong club met beside the bay (actually by the western beach historic boat ramps) to partake of a fish and chip supper and to say bon voyage to Coner Brown.
President Peter presented Coner with his Exchange student blazer which we all acknowledged that although it fitted Coner well at this moment that he would grow and mature into over the year he will be in Germany on Exchange.
There was a great turn out to wish him well with the Rotarians Friends and Family in attendance.
The reports from members on the Christmas break up at the Gold diggers Arms have been very positive with President Peter declaring the night a great success.
The evening was interesting with fun, fellowship, eating and drinking plus the obligatory Kris Kringle
This was expected as the Rotary Club of Bayside pride itself on being the fun club and celebrated a very successful 2019.
The theme of the night as proposed by Rotarian Jo White was “Christmas Glam” and members did so!
President Peter Hynes opened the meeting and invited Conner to run through his presentation.
He will use when giving his German host club and any other interested parties his Bi0 to showcase Himself and Australia whilst he is away.
Conner is due to fly out to Germany in January and his presentation covered the key points about Australia and many of our quirky customs, sports and wildlife.
The content included a bit about him and has background and family, all very useful to show host family and school.
Conner’s presentation was delivered and he confidently fielded questions.
Notes on the catering for the COGG Christmas celebrations held 7th December at the Geelong Arena.
As you may know this is the annual catering event undertaken by the club and is our major fundraising activity for the year.
