President John's Message
Good morning members and friends of Rotary Melbourne South.  I start this newsletter having just stood on St Kilda Road this morning to remember our ANZAC diggers and in memory of all our service men and women who have served and continue to serve our country, and especially to remember the 4 police officers who lost their lives this week while serving our Melbourne community. It was actually quite emotional and moving.  Lest We Forget!

Zooming into Rotary New Zealand
John and Pam joined the club meeting of Wellington North via Zoom following an invitation from Marion Patchett who joined our Monday evening meeting on 20 April.
Red Hats
When our club was meeting at the German Club and members could elect to take the red hat from the entrance table and place it at their table setting. It meant that they would pay the club for their meal but would not order one. There was only one red hat per meeting but we had weekly meetings so that raised $100 per month towards club administration expenses. ie insurance, website, domain names, marketing etc. We could run a similar system on Zoom we could limit it to 2 red hats per meeting at $20 each or open it up to as many people as wanted could be red hat donors using an honesty system to pay online at the end of the month. Great Idea Pam!

Rotary: Give Every Child A Future:
 A Rotary Centenary Project
While there have been improvements in immunisation services many children still miss out on the vaccines. Three times more women die from cervical cancer in the Pacific than in Australia and every year, 1 in 18 children die before their fifth birthday In Kiribati.
Many of these lives could be saved by vaccines.
