The nominations may be for people from the external community, or those from within the Club who are considered worthy of a PHF.
 
To nominate anyone, please complete the PHF nomination form, which is available on the web site and pass it on to the Secretary, David Button, for consideration by the PHF Committee.

International Exchange Student Report:
 
Clara Ruhe advised that she is an exchange student from Germany with the Rotary Club of Narre Warren and has been in Australia for 9 months.  She will be returning home early in July.
 
She returned from her Australian Safari tour on 27 April.  During the trip she visited Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Cooper Pedy, the Gold Coast and Sydney.
 
The highlight of her trip was scuba diving off the great Barrier Reef and getting so close to the fish.
 
She stated that some of the things she would still like to see before she goes, are the penguins at Phillip Island and the Museum.  If anyone can help make this happen, please let her know.
