Dear Rotarians,
I had the pleasure of chairing my last Board meeting on Tuesday and wish to thank them for their support this year.  At our next meeting (Monday June 15th) each board member will brief the members on their key activities giving you a chance to ask questions on decision made outside our Monday meetings.  As soon as the board minutes are finalised they will be available to all members via a link in the eBulletin. I encourage you to read them.  Ian & I are still planning the Changeover dinner for 13th July 2020, where you can thank the board members personally.
One item I’m keen to share immediately is the approval of Tracy Fraser’s application for membership. Welcome Tracy, and we will induct you at our first face to face meeting.
I hope everyone enjoys their Queens Birthday Weekend  break, and looking forward to seeing you Monday June 15th.    
Stay safe.  
Yours in Rotary

At our Meeting on the 25th of May, our Guest Speaker was

Maddie presented The Western Harbour Tunnel which is a new crossing of Sydney Harbour and creates a western bypass of the Sydney CBD.  The project includes upgrading four kilometres of one of Australia’s busiest roads, the Warringah Freeway.   This will address congestion, improve safety and provide more choice for how to move around Sydney.  Maddie Explained the two parts of the project;
Members were very interested in the progress to date and expressed their thanks for the presentation.
