FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK
Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there… Special thoughts for the dads who are no longer with us, and who have played an important part in shaping who we are today!

It’s been another busy week at the Rotary Club of Berwick. From the hustle and bustle of the Farmers and Craft Market on Saturday, to our direct engagement with prospective students at the Federation University Open Day on Sunday, and a social outing to the Queen Vic Night Market on Wednesday, members and friends of the club have been fully engaged.

In this week’s edition of the Spoke ‘n’ Words you will read the latest report from Alex Kraan our exchange student and worthy ambassador in Switzerland, and a feature article based on the insights that Adam Hughes, President of the Rotary Club of Port Moresby, shared with members and guests on the night that he visited the club on the 9th of August.

Our monthly Farmers and Craft Market at the Old Cheese factory was a success, with a large number of stalls turning up to display their wares. A steady flow of visitors made for a good atmosphere. For the first time the Salvos set up a stall and their discounted toys attracted a lot of attention.
 
On Sunday the club in collaboration with the Casey-Cardinia Rotaract Club hosted a stand at the Federation University Open Day. It was an opportunity to engage directly with prospective students and promote the Rotary and Rotaract brands. Students had the opportunity to participate in a survey to gauge their level of knowledge and interest in Rotary, and avenues to serve the community.
 
It was great to see the reactions to our Facebook posts on the day, and the multiple shares including Rotary Australia. Great PR!!

DARWIN INSTITUTE ATTENDEES
We have four members going to Darwin for Rotary next week!
 
Rotary Institute and pre Institute training, seminars and meetings are being conducted in Darwin over the course of 26 August – 23rd September.
 
Best wishes go with our own District Governor Nominee Adrian Froggatt and Wendy as they embark on their initial three days of formal “G” train (Governor training!) facilitated instruction. 
 
Their days will be very full of learning, information dissemination, getting to know their trainers, zone and international personnel and, of course, their Australia wide cohort. 
Good luck and have fun.

JOKER'S WILD

The Jackpot was $1,288.25 this week.

Penny Brass, a visiting Rotarian from the Isle of Arran in Scotland, pulled G43 from my  bag.


Jim Armstrong was delighted to have a chance at the Jackpot.

Jim drew the Jack of Diamonds.  The Joker managed to stay in the deck of cards.

There are 30 cards remaining.

Joker's Wild is a fun session and members look forward to walking away with the jackpot each week!!


Good luck all for next meeting when we have Joker's Wild.

A visit to the Queen Vic "Winter Night" Market is a must.
Organise for friends to join us as well, as we wander around the Market, enjoying good food, great company and an atmosphere you can only get at the Queen Vic Night Market.

ROTARY LANGUAGE EXPLAINED
At the back of the Rotary Club Handbook there is a heading Acronyms.  If you don’t have one of these handbooks or are new to reading about Rotary, these acronyms can perhaps cause confusion.
