PRESIDENT'S POST

This week President Andrew reports on decisions made at last week’s Board meeting and reminds us of the events the Club has lined up between now and the end of this Rotary year, starting with next week’s special Anzac Day lunch.

With an election looming his ‘Thoughts of the Week’ over the coming weeks will focus on democracy, its strengths and vulnerabilities.

He apologises for the fact there is no Lingua File this week.  He could have blamed an errant Easter bunny for eating the draft but, conscious of Rotary’s 4-Way Test, he confesses to chocolate-induced indolence.

 Here is his speech. I’m not sure it’s in its entirety, but you should get quite a lot of info from it.

In the moment it takes to skim this sentence alone, eight children are born, and most are healthy.

THE PAUL HARRIS SOCIETY

The PHS of District 9800 was the first to be formed in Australia. At least once a year members get together to talk about Rotary and the Rotary Foundation. Thirty members of the District’s Paul Harris Society enjoyed a very convivial Christmas lunch at Graduate House on Friday December 10. 

Half-a-dozen Hawthorn Rotarians are members: perhaps you recognise this happy couple.

AROUND THE TRAPS

No meeting this week, as we linger over Easter.
But as always, we have something Rotary-relevant, and something irreverent for you to ponder.

JEST FOR A LAUGH

First time I heard about paraprosdokians, I liked them.
They are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is frequently humorous.
(Winston Churchill loved them).
