President’s Corner – David Lloyd
Thanks to members for having such a good attendance for our AGM last Wednesday night.
Before we got into the business of the AGM it was my privilege on behalf of the club to present a donation of
$500.00 to Scout Leader Dianne from the Beaumont Scouting Group. This donation was for the assistance
given at the Moonlight Market by the scouts, two of the helpers were also present in young Guy and Ander,
both of whom worked on the BBQ. I’m sure you’ll all agree the scouts did a fantastic job on the night, and its
great that we are able to financially assist groups such as these within our community.
Some discussion took place over the distribution of the Rotary Whiskey Cakes. It appears that there has been
some concern re the quality. Several of the cakes showed mould and in keeping the integrity of Rotary
foremost, the clubs decision was made that they all be returned to the organising club (Glenelg Rotary Club)
for a credit. Thank you to Brenton and Coralie for manually checking the seven dozen cakes for quality and
locating several below standard. However the puddings and Shortbread are not affected in any way and your
orders are available from Brenton.
Geoff is really getting polished as our sergeant. It seems no one is immune from his fines, not even the
Congratulations to Brenton Summers who was elected President Elect next year and will be our Club
President for 2016/17,
Also congratulations to Peter Mayer our incoming Treasurer for 2015/16, and to Sue Pullen’s and Paul
Haylock as new club directors for 2015/16. Many thanks for accepting your nominations and we all look
forward in working with you next year.
We all had a very busy weekend with The Moonlight Market on Friday and Carols in the Park on Sunday. The
carols event caught us all by surprise with the number of attendees. The BBQ and Kiosk
were flat out for some considerable time, well done to everyone that assisted on the events.

Fundraising this year - From Adel – Director - Fundraising Committee
We have had three major fund raising activities so far this Rotary year. Two Moonlight Markets and
the Christmas Carols. These activities were well supported by our members.
The average sale for the two Moonlight Markets was $3,800 which is approximately $900 less than
the average for the two markets held at the same period last year ($4,700). This is mainly due to the
increased number of food outlets at the market this year compared with last year.
The Committee will meet soon to discuss possible actions to improve our profile on the market night
and other possible fundraising activities to compensate for the budget shortfall.
Thank you for your support and I wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
