As always Rotarian John McDonald never misses an opportunity to fly the flag for all the valuable community events in Torquay and most importantly Torquay Rotary.
 
In this single article in a recent Surf Coast Times,   John managed to promote all of the following :-
 
  • Relay for Life
  • our recent Rotary Book Fair
  • BBQ's at Bunnings
  • & our upcoming Annual Motor Show
 
Then last week John represented our Club at the Surf Coast Australia Day Ceremony receiving an award for our recognition of our Annual Motor Show as a valued community event.
 
 


 
Wow !  what an effort..... a true ambassador of the Club. John McDonald you are a Legend!

I would like to give a huge thanks to everyone from our club who turned out in horrible conditions (again) to support the 2018 Ride the Bellarine.

I felt somewhat guilty that as a member of the organising committee I was unable to attend to do my bit on the day.

So thanks to all who did, particularly Michael Reed who filled my boots managing the Barwon Heads Feed Station and Marshall sign on post.

I will run the Ride the Bellarine End Polio Sponsorship sheet around again this week for anyone who missed it last  time.
