RECAP...Projects Projects Projects

Hi everyone,

Last Tuesday we had a low-key but very productive planning meeting for upcoming projects.  A lot of ideas have been flowing through, so it was great to have some dedicated time to work on them.

Tomorrow night we are privileged to have Professor Susan Davis join us.  Professor Davis is a committee member of Australian Rotary Health, and will be talking to us about their "Lift the Lid on Mental Health" campaign in the lead up to World Mental Health Day on October 12th.  RSVP now on Meetup, it should be a fantastic and relevant presentation. 

Have a great week!

Best regards,
Jacinta Walker
President - Rotary Club of Melbourne Park
