District 9780 Governor Ray Herbert and his lovely wife, Deidre together with Assistant Governor Judy Beasley were our special guests at our regular Monday night dinner meeting.  DG Ray had a busy day meeting with our Board members and being updated on the progress of all projects currently underway or about to be implemented by the Rotary Club of Torquay.  DG Ray and ADG Judy were both very impressed with the briefing and provided positive feedback to members.  Thank you also to Rob Shedden for chaperoning Deidre whilst DG Ray attended to official matters.
 
DG Ray presented President Elect 2018/19 Trevor Pickles with his badge of office and congratulated him on stepping up.
After three years of planning, the joint Rotary/Lions shed, which is located behind the tennis courts at the Football Oval, is ready for use. A number of Rotarians joined the Lions members for the official opening on Monday 11th September and following Sunday's Cowrie Market our BBQ trailer moved into its new home. It still requires shelving and water at a later stage. Thanks to Mal Slater, John McDonald and all others involved in this project.
On Monday 28th August Torquay Rotarians enjoyed good fellowship, good food and good wine at the homes of three of our members who graciously offered to host this year's Fireside Chats.  By all accounts it was a fabulous evening and a terrific way to get to know members on a more personal level.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
