Short words by Bob Ant

What a week of fun, sadness, discussion and good old-fashioned community service.

Tuesday afternoon we celebrated Radar’s 17th birthday at Rotary Park with a BBQ. Thanks to all who contributed and attended, to Lynn for her assistance, to Charmaine for her excellent BBQ skills and to Michael for the fantastic birthday cakes.

Sadly Peter Hartley’s mother passed away on Tuesday after a short illness. Our thoughts and sympathy go out to Peter and Julie and their family.

On Thursday night we had a board meeting – sorry for the lack of notice due to a technical problem – but everyone rallied and we got through it. We decided to increase the donation for the Narooma Primary School Dux boy and girl to $75 each. We also cleared the funding for Jacob Reed to go to RYLA.

On Friday morning, the White Ribbon Day March from the Golf Club to NATA Oval, which was organised by the NSW Police, ¬†was a great success. Our role was to supply the BBQ and cook for all the people who participated. Starting at 7.30 am we set up and then cooked like crazy from 10.30, packed up and finished by 1pm. My thanks to all who joined in, helped, marched and offered help. Special thanks to John and Sandra, Ash and Lynda, Lynn, Angie, Rod and Mike.¬†Hopefully I haven’t missed anyone. Following less than a week after the markets it was a great effort…. we did well.

Ticket selling for the Moruya Races – our combined Eurobodalla Club fund raiser – is well under way. Find some time, if you can … if you want to buy some tickets bring your money to the meeting.

This week, Narooma Rotary’s award for Vocational Excellence will be presented to a man who has helped shape Narooma. Bring your partners, friends etc…. let Anthony know ASAP for numbers.

Most importantly, have a great week.
