Narooma Rotary Beacon 4 October 2018

Rod’s Ramble

Not much to report. I have moved the Board meeting to this Thursday 4th at 5:00pm as I will be away again the following week. That will make this week’s meeting a Club Assembly. Under consideration will be dates for the AGM I would ask that everyone start to consider what they will be able to contribute to the running of the Club next Rotary Year. 

We will also set a date for our Christmas party and discuss the venue. If anyone has a view on the venue please let me know before Thursday. At the Board Meeting we will also consider a request from Wendy Machin. Does anyone know Wendy or the background of this request? 

‘I am writing to you in the hope that you will support me in an application to the local Dalmeny Sporting Club. I am seeking some of their funds to pay for a pathway from the bus stop on ort Avenue to the top of Ruth Place; parallel to the Dalmeny Bowling Club. I work with IRT and manage our residents who live independently on the outskirts of the care centre’

I have received the latest addition of Rotary on the move today. Please click here to view – download the ‘Rotary on the move’ newsletter for October 2018

NPS teachers Ben Neich & Katrina Close took us back to school.

International Toast

The club toasted District 9600 and its DG Wendy Protheroe. District 9600 is somewhat unique in that it embraces Rotary clubs in four different countries – Australia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Nauru. The District extends from Brisbane to Gympie in Queensland, an area that has 49 Rotary Clubs, 13 in PNG, 2 Clubs in the Solomon Islands and 1 Club in Nauru.

DG Wendy who is a member of the Rotary Club of Brisbane High Rise, has represented Australia and Queensland internationally and was the Queensland Government’s Economic Development Portfolio Director during the 2000 Olympic Games.

Wendy was General Manager of Boys Town Counselling Services with responsibilities across Australia.
