Mick Morland Rock
On Sunday 27th March, a small team of members got together to install the rock at the Mick Morland Reserve.

In early May there will be an official ceremony to open the Mick Morland Reserve.

Thank you to all concerned (especially our little Rotary helpers), for a job well done!

Mick's plaque will be installed closer to the official opening of the reserve.

Our young Heros!

'My Rotary' Learning Centre
Posted by Sam McCurdy:
The Learning Centre in My Rotary is available to Rotarians who are interested in taking online courses on a variety of topics, including membership, The Rotary Foundation, Club Basics and much more.
By going to or logging into My Rotary, members can take interactive courses that help them learn by contemplating real life membership scenarios and exploring best practices and strategies to address challenges.
The Learning Centre features a search function, personalized reports, and virtual badges for completed courses. 
If you don't have your My Rotary account set up yet? Learn how to create a My Rotary account (pdf document).
Once you have created your My Rotary account  you can access a wide range of training modules.  For example, if you want to learn more about Rotary's model for leading change, then log in to My Rotary and check out the Leading Change course.  The model is summarised pictorially below.
