Blessed with Youth
We are blessed because we live in the most wonderful of locations, in a fantastic country and are not only able to witness great things but be part of them…… wow.
At last night’s meeting (20th August) a fantastic bunch of young people visited our club and gave us a glowing report on how their attendance at MUNA in Canberra challenged and changed them for the better.
This did not just happen of its own accord! David and Rachael McInnes, Angie Ulrichsen and Michael O’Conner worked to lift their awareness of World events. Together with Sue Fahey from the High School challenged them and then took them to Canberra to join with other students from the East Coast to debate the merits of various ideas as it relates to the country chosen for them.
David, Rachael, Angie and Sue supported them through this weekend and on the other side four grateful teenagers gave glowing reports to us of not only a positive experience but one that they will remember and learn from for the rest of their lives.
Radar, our exchange student from Taiwan was not only introduced to the club but gave a small outline of his journey but was able answer the many questions asked of him.
We had a great night of youth, fun with the wheel and a positive outcome for all. We were able to acknowledge David, Rachel and Angie for their enormous contribution to this worthy project, thank you.
Short words by bob ant
“I through open the shutters and words feel upon these lines” said Leonard Cohen and with Frank needing copy by Friday night I’d better hope for inspiration.
It was with enormous pleasure that I was able to present to Rotarians David, Rachael and Angie a small token of our clubs appreciation of the work they put into the MUNA kids. It really has paid dividends, thank you. Next week or so we hope to make a presentation to Councilor Sue Fahey from the high school.
This week’s markets are going to be a tight fit. With the markets, selling Whale watching raffle tickets setting up the ShelterBox I wish to acknowledge all who have put up their hands to help.
This coming week we are having a board meeting followed by a club assembly. If you have any suggestions, gripes etc this will be the time to bring it up.
Last night (Wednesday 19th) I attended Moruya Rotary first for a Presidents meeting then the club meeting. Some great ideas were discussed and more will be reveled next week.
Please check out the new web site and contact Frank with any photo’s or interesting articles that you may come across.
JACK is back in Moruya Hospital after his quick trip to Canberra. He was peacefully sleeping on my last visit, a good sign.
The human brain is a wonderful thing. It starts working the moment you are born and never stops until you stand up to make a speech.
