Narooma Rotary Beacon 27 October 2016


A busy week for all and particularly all those who were at the markets today ( Sunday). A wonderful effort to get the markets up and running with so many away, and then that awful wind to contend with.

Monday saw me having a meeting with Frank, Sandra and Rod at Rod’s home, where we think we have solved the issues with the model Constitution and By-Laws for our club. I am sure most would agree that we can put our time to better use than trying to draft a meaningful document out of the ( interrupted – called out to a structure fire at home besides Ange’s. Fortunately not serious and so stood down as the town firies had it under control) gump they gave us.


District Governor Steve Hill expressed his delight at meeting the Board at our home and then all the club members at the Golf Club for dinner. I think it would be safe to say that we all enjoyed his visit and the venue and the food appeared to please most members. In fact I did not hear any complaint and I did thank them the next day.

Sunday, today, was the markets and unfortunately the weather was not kind and so it was exceedingly quiet, but alas the work that needs to be done remains the same. A great effort.

Remember that this Wednesday we are meeting at the Moruya Jockey club and there is NO MEETING AT WHALE THIS THURSDAY and Thursday 3rd November we are meeting at the Narooma Club and NOT DALMENY as previously advised.

Pres. Michael

Last Week:

Attendance: 15 members, 7 guests, 2 visiting Rotarians

Wheel: Eggs – DG Steve Hill (20); Bread – Sharlie Young (5); Port – Rod Walker; White Wine – Rolf Grimmel; Red Wine – DG Steve (20); Crafted Biro Pen (courtesy John Doyle) – Enid Holmes (6)


Club Guest: Rory Sturgeon & his mother Alison. Youth Director Sandra Doyle introduced Rory, our student participant to the NYSF ConocoPhillips Summer Science School held recently at the ANU. Rory was an outstanding participant who spoke so confidently and with such enthusiasm it was hard to realise that he is just 14-years of age. I am sure he is destined for great things in the future. He was a credit to his family and the Club.








Rotarians-at-Large: PP Bob Aston may well have reached theĀ ultimate goal in his endless quest to promote peace and well-being to the world.
