Hello all, we have cancelled this week’s meeting due to a number of factors converging that meant holding a meeting was no longer practical.
Our guest speaker John Griffiths from the Kinema will be rescheduled to a later date. Hopefully we can draw a much bigger crowd for him then. John would have been feeling low anyway after the Wallabies were beaten by the Pumas Saturday night.
Last week’s meeting whilst the numbers were small a good time was had by all with much laughter and merriment. This will be the last meal from the Golf Club Bistro in its present state with it undergoing major renovations over the next week.
The Whale Watching raffle was drawn this week the winner being Crystal Atkins from Batemans Bay. Here is the article I have submitted to the media.
ROTARY CLUB OF NAROOMA WHALE WATCHING RAFFLE WINNER
Last Saturday saw the drawing of the Rotary Club of Narooma’s annual Whale Watching raffle donated by Narooma Charters. Nick Ingersoll and family were on hand at the Narooma Wharf to draw the winning ticket which belonged to Crystal Atkins of Batemans Bay. Crystal volunteers with the Animal Welfare League and was delighted to be this year’s winner. The whales are already on the way south and pods of up to 10 whales are a common sight on Narooma Charters tours. Narooma Charters has been a long-term supporter of Rotary and this year the raffle raised over $1,700 for Rotary’s charity partner Muddy Puddles. Muddy Puddles provides services to children with disabilities that assist them in reaching their full potential. President of the Rotary Club of Narooma, Rod Walker, congratulated Narooma Charters for their continued support and added that the assistance we receive from across the Narooma business community is outstanding and the main reason Rotary can do the work it does.
September is Literacy Month and Ange has organised for the 27th September two guest speakers from Narooma Primary School Katrina Cross & Tania Hextell. The title of their presentation is A Peek into Literacy and Numeracy in 2018.

|Tyrone ‘Doc’ Bledsoe has a prescription to ensure that young black men attend and finish college: the Student African American Brotherhood. Bledsoe, past president of the Rotary Club of Reynolds Corners, Toledo, Ohio, USA, believes that with SAAB, he has made a breakthrough in solving the quandary that has bedevilled educators, sociologists, and politicians for decades: how to tear down the walls of institutionalized racism that have blocked the path of achievement for so many young men of colour.
