PRESIDENTS NOTE

I hope all Club Members had a restful and enjoyable Long Weekend.

Gabe Hau gave a most informative address about Peace Builder Clubs today.  There are only 5 Clubs with this mantra in Australia. Gabe furnished us with many facts and figures regarding how 'Peace' is measured through the Institute of Economics and Peace which showed clearly how 'Peace' can be attributed to countries across the world.

Global Peace Index

It was a pleasure to hear our former Assistant District Governor Gabe Hau address the club on the Global Peace Index.
Gabe is currently an Ambassador for the Institute for Economics and Peace, and Chairman of Rotary District 9800’s Peacebuilding Committee.
He started the journey to peace when he signed up to attend the Toronto Peace Summit, just before the Toronto Convention. On his return, he helped PDG Murray Verso and PDG Dennis Shore with the "Peace Through Service Summit" at the start of 2019.

The Shadow became, in many ways, the prototype of the superhero, especially Batman and others who do their job not with fantastical superpowers but with their wits, their wealth, and the host of advanced devices and obscure techniques at their disposal. (Including the  Shadow's never-fully-explained ability to "cloud men's minds") 

Like James Bond, The Shadow exists independently of the many actors who have portrayed him, but just as most acknowledge Sean Connery as the definitive Bond, Orson Welles stands as The Shadow to beat.
