President Tony welcomed members and guests Pat Dewar and Marvin Jeffrey.
Changeover night takes place next week.
There is no meeting on July 6 and Peter Armstrong from Yea Football Club will be speaking at the meeting on July 13.
On August 3, our club will be visiting Kinglake Ranges Rotary Club.
Bob Dewar had 28 lots on offer. David Anderson was the auctioneer with Tippy (Miss Thailand) his delightful as-assistant.
An invoice had been received from the Shire for $550 with no details of purchase.
It turns out it was for the hire of the saleyards in September 2022.
An email from David Anderson has been circulated. It contained an email from Kim at Dayspring Children’s Village—see the full email in this bulletin.

HI David
We are soooo excited! It is finally happening. I don't know if Yea got any feedback from the Global grant rep when she was here in March? She was suitably impressed and in tears when she heard some of our testimonies of the kids being helped. She said we have now become a flagship project and the next time we apply for a grant it will be quick and simple! I am sure GLenda and Julie all who helped us apply for the first grant will be relieved to know all their labour and patience with us, was not in vain. We are truly looking forward to having you back, showing you around, and meeting your wife.
Cheryl has suggested you come out on teh 10th of NOv so we have diarised that for now. I am hoping that most of our board will be available to come.
