Bulletin No 07/16-17 (28-8 2016)

Hi reader,

Another fun filled week has rolled on and this coming week we will be starting on our visioning exercise.

I'm pretty sure this will be an evening that should be followed by port!

Martta attended her last meeting for a few weeks at which she reported on her weekend at Tuross Heads.

Less than a week later, on she was at Perrisher showing this 'reporter' how skiing should be done... and it wasn't how I was doing it!

See you on Tuesday. - ED

Nothing reported to the Bulletin Editor.


A number of projects are under consideration.


Youth Director David introduced speaker William and Past Youth Director Janine, introduced our other youth speakers. (see below).


IROMAC - baby Charles and mother Maria from Solomon Islands are doing well (at Tuggeranong Rotary last Tuesday). They'll be going home in 3 weeks. Charles has learned to walk and is running around madly. Next ROMAC child is from Timor Leste and visas are in progress for arrival soon.

Stuart Forsyth from Abundant Water has expressed his gratitude to Hall Rotary for our donations to that cause. Youth Director Fiona is planning to meet with him in the near future to discuss the history and future of our relationship.


No one from the CRFM committee attended the meeting however Pres Paul said the numbers were down.


Youth Guests

The average age of the meeting was lowered considerably thanks to our Youth Exchange Student Martta and four other young guests.

From Left to Right: Our 2016 UC Scholarship winners Larissa McElroy and Kelsey Drabsch with William Hatcher from Narrabunda College who we are sponsoring to attend National Youth Science Forum and our primary guest speaker, Jessica Catlin, now in her second year of the UC Scholarship but third year of her degree.

All students were very enthusiastic and thanked the club for our support. We look forward to seeing them back again to report on their progress.
