Our guest speakers on Wednesday 18th of April where Alan Thompson and Alaine Beek from the Wyndham Theatre Company.
 
Alan is the current president and has held that position for the past 10 years. The company has been in existence for 50 years and has performed around 130 productions in that time. Some of those productions have taken place in regional centres across Victoria.
 
The Company has won a number of prestigious awards over its life for productions that include ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Month of Sundays’ and ‘Lion in Winter’. Alan said that the Company was always looking for volunteers to fill a variety of production and behind the scenes roles. He also noted that the Company has a strong youth focus. Alaine spoke about upcoming productions and gave us an insight to her production, ‘Point of No Return’, which the company will perform to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The play is historically based and tells the story of boys who were transported as convicts to Port Arthur. An interesting presentation that took us behind the scenes of the Wyndham Theatre Company.
 
CALENDAR GIRLS WILL BE PRESENTED IN MAY 
 
On Tuesday the 17th of April 2018 Rotary Club of Hoppers Crossing helped Denise Robson with the presentation of the Autumn Fashion Show.
 
Denise and her amazing team brought together this fashion show at the Park Hotel Werribee to raise funds for the critical care unit at the Werribee Mercy Hospital.
 
This was a fantastic night with women’s’ and men’s’ fashions on display, musical entertainment and two raffles. The event managed to attract 155 guests.
 
The clothes came from local retailers, Tonia T Boutique and Ed Harry. The modelling skills of two of our own Rotarians was very entertaining.
 
Musical entertainment was provided by local group FD3. The group got the place pumping and a lot of the audience got into the enthusiasm of the entertainment. The where also a array of raffles offered with exceptional prizes which had all been donated very generously by local businesses and donors.
 
This great event raised  $4823.16 and this will be handed over to the hospital at one of our future Rotary meetings.
 
 
 
 
Aziz Arshad Profile

 

I was born and raised in Pakistan. Completed the primary school (1-5th grade), high school (6-10th grade) and college (11-12th grade) education prior to start of university education. Received merit scholarships during school, college and university education. I completed my Bachelor of Petroleum Engineering degree from the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan with distinction (top students).

Started my professional career as an Executive Engineer in Pakistan and soon was honored and selected to work in Soviet Union (Russia). It was a unique and very interesting experience to move from the heat of Pakistan to extreme cold 0f -42 C. I was introduced to the exciting experience of buying milk as an ice block and challenges of ice hole fishing.  Then I returned to Pakistan and moved to Saudi Arabia after 0ne year where I worked for 9 years as Petroleum Engineer on various technical and management positions.

In 1991 I moved to Australia as a skilled migrant. I earned prestigious Australian Postgraduate Research Award (APRA) and completed my Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney where I lived prior to moving to Saudi Arabia in 1995. I have returned to Australia permanently in 2015 and living with my family in Melbourne.
