Our first meeting back at Holm Park for 2023 proved to be a great start to the year. 
Congratulations to Michele Somers, our newest Rotarian, who was inducted at the commencement of the meeting by Co-President Geoff.
31 members and guests were in attendance which is a healthy number.  Hopefully, we can maintain at least these numbers throughout the rest of the year.
Our guest presenters at the meeting were Susan Magee and Helen Small from Casey North Community Information Support Services (CNCISS). 
Susan gave an excellent presentation on the services they offer and also disturbing facts about the issues they see within our local community.
Our Club has been a strong supporter of CNCISS over the years.  It is obvious that the need in our community is now greater than ever. 
We call on all our members to give thought to, and make suggestions, as to what our Club can do to assist CNCISS in their endeavours.
Co-President Geoff and I have briefly discussed investigating whether Donations in Kind may have items in stock that may be useful. More to come on this.
All members would have received an email originating from President Elect, Dave Anderson, with a series of survey questions. 
I encourage you to complete this survey so that Dave and the Board can take your views into account when planning for the year ahead.
