It was with great sadness that we announce PP Bob Collins has passed away on December 6th.
Bob was a gentleman, who was loved by all and was active in Rotary until his health restricted his involvement.
Bob started in Rotary with the then Kilmore Club in November 1976, then joined Seymour in June 1988, sponsored by Rotarian Bryan Tehan.  Bob held many positions over the years including President of both clubs, along with Treasurer of Seymour for several years. Bob was also extremely proud of being the conference chair for PDG Bill Hollman's conference held in Wagga Wagga.
Bob will be missed by all and our sympathies are extended to Rita and his family.
RIP Bob.

Working Towards the Mental Health for Our Returned Service Personnel

What if the secret to moving past trauma could be unlocked through analysing and re-scripting our dreams?


New research funded by Australian Rotary Health, Rotary District 9790, and some RSL Clubs in Victoria will investigate neurological, psychological, and phenomenological differences between Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) nightmare sufferers and adaptive dreamers (those who experience a dream of a traumatic event).

The Rotary Club of Sunbury are holding "The Longest Lunch" to raise funds for research into mental illness.
Limited numbers only available so book early to avoid disappointment
Making a difference is an expression you hear all the time about Rotary, the opportunities that we have and the things that we do.

What kind of a difference each club and each Rotarian chooses to make will always be their own decision. But we are united in our organization and its common principles: our insistence on ethics and our commitment to Service Above Self.
In Rotary, we know that we can do more together than we could ever hope to do alone.  It is the principle on which our service is based, and it is true at every level of Rotary.

At the end of my year as DG the legacy that I wish to leave our district is ‘Happy clubs, Happy District’. If we can achieve that by working more collaboratively together, between clubs and across the district, then the exchange of ideas, the friendships created and the goals that we achieve can only lead to happier more engaged Rotarians.
If this is achieved then this can have the added flow on effect of increased membership which obviously will have a greater benefit on the world we live in, locally, nationally and internationally.

Let me emphasize again that the year ahead of us all is to make it Rotary’s year to shine.
It is the year all of us have committed to dedicate to service through Rotary. 
It is Rotary making a difference by building stronger and more active clubs that serve in better and more lasting ways.
It is believing in a Rotary that is recognized for the good work it does — a Rotary that will continue to grow, to endure, to go from strength to strength — making a difference to our communities, our countries, and our world.
That is what we will achieve together this year.

Rotary: Making a Difference.
