Beyond Adversity - Opportunity awaits at our first club meeting for 2018-19.

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 19 July 2018
Beyond Adversity - Opportunity awaits at our first club meeting for 2018-19.

17th July 2018 marked our first club meeting for the 2018-19 year and we had Molina Swarup Asthana as our guest speaker talking about "Opportunity in the face of adversity". The topic relates to how we as individuals, groups and/or organisations should approach in tackling hurdles and changes in this fast pacing world we live in. In fact, it is so relevant to what Rotary is undergoing at present - with flexibility of meeting frequency, ability to meet either face-to-face or online, having diverse membership, engaging with volunteers, promotion of Rotary through events/projects and many others.

We had a number of guests who came along;

  • Past District Governor Neville John from Rotary Club of Central Melbourne
  • Aria Brar, Elizabeth Mahoney & Sanjeet Bains from Justice Connect
  • Edgar Camacho - Southbank Resident & Friend of Rotary (through Past President Darren Veerapa from Rotary Club of North Melbourne)
  • Adam Breman - Friend of Rotary (through Past President Steven Aquilina)

It was a memorable meeting for two reasons:
