  • 2. Page 2 PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Hello Everyone, Last Monday night we were treated to an excellent presentation by Claire Thompson and Mark Wallace, who provided great insight into the GSE Team visit to England, back in April. It was interesting to hear about all the fantastic vocational visits that the Team were offered, together with great feedback on the warmth and kindness of the Rotary families who hosted the Team during their trip. It sounds as if the organisation in the UK was excellent, with the trip providing the Team with a truly memorable experience. It is encouraging to recognise our Club’s role in assisting to make this possible for Claire, through our sponsorship. Claire has made it very clear that she hopes to maintain a long term relationship with the Club Members of The Hills Kellyville, and that she will provide ongoing support to the Club through her media links. Next Monday we have the opportunity to learn more about social networking from Haran, who has become quite an expert in the area. Haran, as many of you are aware is now involved in producing the District newsletter, which in turn is providing us with some excellent information in our own Weekly Bulletin. It will be an interesting eveni ng with a focus on how we can publicise information about our Club on the Internet. Looking forward to seeing you all there. Warm regards, President Bobby Redman Summary of Last Meeting Opening Sergeant Greg Rieper brought the meeting to order. After Rotary Grace and the loyal toast, Michael Griscti proposed the International Toast to the Rotary Club of London. Sergeant Greg then handed the meeting to President Bobby Redman. President Bobby Redman President Bobby welcomed our guest speakers, Claire Thompson and Mark Wallace and also welcomed Lyn Stapley and Margaret van Emmerik. Apologies had been received from Alan Jones, Bob Low, Bruce Pike, Suresh Prasad, Haran Ramachandran, Gordon Scoble, Jim Sifonios , Rod Tilden.

Trivia Night Winston Hills Rotary This will be held on 11t h August and President Members to consider attending as Winston Hills had supported our trivia night. A list was circulated. Treasurer Keith Stapley Keith reminded members that membership fees were now overdue. Open Garden – The Garden of Secrets 8th & 9th September Members of the project team had inspected the garden on the 29th July at the invitation of the owners Paul and Jennifer Leone and were totally impressed by this spectacular garden as well as the ent husiasm and support of the owners. The project team had already had one meeting at which tasks had been allocated and would hold weekly meetings from now on. This would be one of the biggest projects the Club has run and would need the full support of all members, partners and friends to be successful. One critical task was deciding which charity to nominate as the major beneficiary as this would feature prominently in our promotion. A video of the last Open garden event at this venue which was for the Guide Dogs in 2008 was shown during the meal. Community Service – Graeme Rohan Bunning’s BBQ 11th August Graeme circulated a list for rostering for this event. At least 4 people would be required for each 3 hour shift.

  • 4. Page 4 Guest Speakers Claire Thompson and Mark Wallace were introduced by President Bobby to speak on their experiences on the GSE team visit to the UK in April. Claire thanked the Club for sponsoring her and said it had been one of the best experiences in her life. Mark, who is also editor of Rotary Down Under was the team leader and was most impressed by the quality and performance of the team members. The time in the UK had been very full -on with activities nearly every day and a change of hosts every week. Despite England experiencing the wettest April in 20 years it had been a really exciting time as it was the lead up to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and people were just starting to get excited about the Olympic Games. Both Claire and Mark were most impressed by the professional way visits had been organised and the enthusiasm of the host Rotarian GSE Clubs, as well as by the friendliness and hospitality shown to them. There were at least 2 vocational days every week and 4 in some weeks. One of the highlights was a visit to News Limited’s printing plant which is the biggest of its kind in the world. This not only prints News Limited pape rs but also other newspapers under contract. Two other highlights were being in the main news room at Channel 4 where the presentation style was very different and much less formal than in our TV News and a visit to the House of Commons where they inter viewed a local MP and watched proceedings from the visitors gallery. In Claire’s current role with the Hills Council she was also happy to meet the mayors of a number of cities and councils including having a long chat to the Mayor of Stevenage about the differences between Australian and UK local government. They also met the veteran Olympic commentator Stuart Story who entertained them with some of his experiences. The team gave 12 presentations including one at the District Conference in Torquay which was also one occasion when they had good weather. They changed the presentations weekly to reflect their continuing experiences and this was very well received. All in all both agreed that it had been a very successful and memorable experience. Mark also highlighted the fact that Rotary now had at least 8 switched on media people from both the incoming and outgoing GSE teams who knew a lot about Rotary and who could be expected to be sympathetic to us. While he felt that they should not feel under pre ssure to join Rotary it was quite possible that at least some may do so, which would be a real bonus.

  • 7. Page 7 Vocational Service Corner – PP Haran Ramachandran Through the Avenue of Vocational Service, Rotarians contribute their professional expertise and skills to address societal problems and needs, promote high ethical standards in the workplace, support career planning and other vocational activities, and represent the dignity and value of their profession. Rotary Images/Alyce Henson Vocational Service Month promotes business integrity, professional development Carlos Früm, governor of District 6440 (Illinois, USA) and a member of the Rotary Club of Northbrook, teaches business principles and entrepreneurship to Maya high school students as part of his district’s ongoing service project in Guatemala. "Vocational service gives Rotarians the opportunity to help others escape poverty and gain a measure of self-respect," Früm says. "As business and professional leaders, we have a duty to lead and encourage good ethics through vocation." Through vocational service, Rotarians contribute their professional expertise and skills to address societal problems and needs, and to promote high ethical standards in the workplace. "Rotarys focus on ethical practices as part of vocational service has been a central part of my success in my business, professional, civic, and personal life since I became a Rotarian," says Paul A. Netzel, vice chair of the Vocational Service Promotion Committee and past RI director. Rotarians have two benchmarks for promoting professional integrity: The Four-Way Test and the Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions. "Rotarys Four-Way Test has served as an easy template for me in weighing the pros and cons of countless issues and decisions Ive had to address over my career," Netzel says. "It has helped make me a better Rotarian." Netzel says vocational service sets Rotary apart from other service and humanitarian organizations. Rotarians can support vocational service by  Strengthening the emphasis on professional diversity in member recruitment  Identifying ways to emphasize professions in club activities  Placing a stronger emphasis on business networking with integrity at the club and district level -- which also is a means of attracting and mentoring the next generation  Emphasizing the connection between The Four-Way Test and the Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions, and their importance to the values of Rotary The Rotary Club of the Hills-Kellyville meets Monday Night at the Castle Hill Tavern 6.15pm for 6.45pm start.
