Homeless World Cup Revisited - 10 Years on!

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 29 August 2018
Part of the journey leading up to presidency was to understand the rich history of projects/events which the club has done since the club chartered back in 1999. Though it is challenging and at times leading to no leads, I kept on trying and something came up!  Tung Dinh (a close friend of mine) mentioned about George Halkias who ran the Melbourne Homeless World Cup back in 2008 and used to be his boss at the Victims Referral and Assistance Service department in the Victorian ...

Rotaract Harry Potter Trivia Night

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 26 August 2018
J.K. Rowling created the Harry Potter phenomenon when the first novel (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone) was released on 26th June 1997. But who would have thought twenty-one (21) years later a trivia on Harry Potter would be held? Well that took place on 25th August 2018 at the Fitzroy Town Hall organised by Rotaract Club of Melbourne City, Australia (co-sponsored by Rotary Club of Southbank and Rotary Club of North Melbourne). A total of eight (8) rounds consisting of que...

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 22 August 2018
Despite the strong winds and potential rains, we had our club meeting on 14th August 2018 at the Belgian Beer Cafe in Southbank - seventeen (17) of us braved the weather so kudo's to everyone!

Last year in 2017, Ray White Southbank came fourth (4th) in the Victoria state and received numero...

#SouthbankRotary sets new standard by opening board meeting to members and guests

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 28 July 2018
Before the 2018-19 year kicked in, the board made a pact to embrace flexibility in how we schedule, conduct and meet for board meetings. Though the case, Rotary International does require the board to meet monthly - so it got us thinking how we can do the change? In Rotary Club of Southbank's constitution, it does allow the board to meet online if there is no quorum for face-to-face or there is a strong preference to meet online. So guess what, we created a group on Facebook Messen...

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

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 19 July 2018
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...
