“Getting to Know You” Our Members — John Sinclair the first speaker.
John gave an insight in to the life of John Sinclair! Born in 1940, both parents being medical practitioners, living in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, at-tending East Ivanhoe Primary School and then private college for secondary. John’s passion was for the family 500 acre farm in Molesworth, where he com-menced developing it to the Nutfield we know now. He met Clare 59 years ago, and together they are very proud of their 3 children and 7 grandchildren. Rotary is a feature of John’s life, being a member for 32 years, and he looks for-ward to many more years of fellowship and friendship of Yea Rotary Club.
Our second “Getting to Know You” speaker was none other than our Chairperson, and future grandson in law of John, Lachie!
Lachie told us of growing up in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, second of 4 children. He attended the local primary school and then on to private secondary. A highlight of his secondary schooling was playing the bagpipes and being a member of the pipe band, where they were lucky to play tours overseas and around Australia. He attended Deakin University, studying science (Microbiology). He met Lily through their friendship groups in Year 10, and have been a couple since 1st year university, Studies took them to Canberra and Griffith, then moved to back to a farm in Molesworth, Whilst still working part time as a brewer in Alexandra, Lachie is also a member of the Elders Insurance team. Lachie and Lily announced their engagement earlier this year, and plan to marry 2024.
