President’s Message – October 2018

Dear Members,

What an exciting time of year spring provides with Football finals of all codes, the spring racing carnival and the Geelong Cup in our own home town. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. It is also known as the time when consumers throw off the shackles of winter and start to spend.

Last month we had a very interesting speaker in Dr. Dan O’Brien who enlightened and informed members about infectious diseases, particularly those relating to our own region. His passion for his work and his humanitarian efforts in under developed countries resonated with the audience.

This month we have the CEO of the Geelong Port, Brett Winter as our guest speaker. An interesting topic as the Port is a great economic indicator of how our region is travelling.

I look forward to seeing you all at our October dinner meeting.

Tim Noonan
