At the Club SGM meeting held on 24 September, 22 members voted on four resolutions relating to reduced formalities in meeting procedures, culminating over 6 months of consultation on these matters (including a club survey, the club planning meeting and two club assemblies).  All four resolutions were passed, with 15, 18, 18 and 19 votes respectively.  This means that future club meetings will commence with a toast to Rotary International only (the Rotary Grace and toast to the Queen and people of Australia will no longer form part of the proceedings). The President may include other toasts on special occasions.  Thanks to Vice President Russ Walls and his team for their work in this area.
The role of leading the toast to RI will continue to be rotated through members.
