What it means to be Australian
Being Australian is about driving in a German car
to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer,
then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry
or a Turkish kebab on the way,
to sit on Swedish furniture and watch
 American shows on a Japanese TV.

President’s  “Rotary Round Up” of events and Club happenings.

Saturday 11th August 2018

Next Tuesday there will be a Board Meeting at the Cottage at 4.30 pm. All are invited to attend. After the Board those wishing to, may adjourn to the RSL for refreshments. 

St. Vincents de Paul.

Last week, John Harrison from St. Vincent de Paul, gave a presentation on the work their organisation does in the local area. And he also promoted their annual “sleep- out” on the 23rd August at Maroochy Surf Club. They aim to raise $150,000, which will be used to refurbish and provide furnishings and household goods for their Unit complex. There are over 100 Homeless people in the Noosa Council area, which surprised most members. Vinnies Queensland is recognised as a dedicated organisation offering a hand up to people in need,respecting their dignity, sharing our hope and encouraging them to tale control of their own destiny. Any member wishing to help, please register and donate on www.communitysleepout.org.au 

Craig’s curry was enjoyed by all, including our visitors, Terry and Phil from Melbourne, Arthur and Sue of no fixed address, and Bob from Noosa. 

Council Grant.

Members will be aware that we receive an annual Noosa Council grant for the Cottage. I have completed the acquittal for the year ended 30th June 2018, which has been reviewed and accepted by Council. An Invoice for the current year has been lodged for an amount of $2.575.56.

We have also received a letter from Council advising they are in discussion with potential tenants and will advise progress. They are also in touch with the Buchanan family, regarding our wish to dispose of the bulky old furniture. Watch this space.

Cottage Furniture.

Craig has offered to arrange new table tops. We have selected a natural timber look. We now need to agree on dimensions. We also need to source more suitable stackable chairs.

Cottage Security.

Roscoe and Craig between them, have been busy with hammers etc and secured the downstairs storage area. It remains to be seen if this will keep the perpetrators out.

Bunnings and Drought relief.

We agreed that the profit from our August Bunnings sausage sizzle, would be available for Drought Relief. We had a good day and raised $783 from sales, plus a further $420 deposited in a special appeal bucket. Thanks to the generosity of the public sausage lovers. We have subsequently agreed to top this up to $2,000. 

A couple of days ago I received a call from Carl Beck. He has been in touch with Council, to get approval to hold a “Vaudeville” night at the “J” for drought relief. The earliest date available is the 6th October and he has asked the Club if we can organise. I immediately, thought it a good idea, as we would also be able to run the bar and get all Clubs in our cluster group involved. It’s early days, but I will be speaking to Carl, to work out logistics and arrangements. 

Pride of Workmanship.

Rob V-W has agreed to initiate a monthly Pride of Workmanship award. Please let him know of any person in our local area who has “gone the extra mile” in providing service. This project is so worth while and it’s great to watch the delight on the faces of those rewarded.

Sunshine Safari.

This years Sunshine Safari will be on the 11th December, which also coincides with D.G Wendy Protheroe’s visit. Anne saw Wendy recently and apparently she is delighted, she will be able to be there, and so are we, Wendy. As you know Anne and I started the Safari in 1990 and ran it for the first seven years. It is now a compulsory activity for all Inbound and Outbound Exchange Students. This year there will be 28 students and 5 adults to host. I will be talking to the cluster group this coming Monday to get their support and help out with Sponsorship. I have been in touch with the Apollonian and await their quotes for a Spit Roast. Charles has offered to run the show and finalise arrangements.

Bendigo Bank.

Our application for a Community grant from the Bank has been approved. We have been cut back to $3,000 this year, which will be allocated, $2,000 for RYDA and $1,000 for the Busking Championships in June next year.

RYDA.

Geoff reported on the recent RYDA day, which was held on the 2nd August. 110 Students and 5 Adults from St. Andrews School attended. 20 volunteers from fellow Rotary Clubs, ensured the day was a great success. Geoff as you know pioneered RYDA in our area and continues to Chair this excellent programme. There is now a break until the next event in October. More volunteers from our Club are welcome to participate.

That’s all folks.   Cheers.   Tony.


WHAT IS ROTARY

(Click here for our Structure, Foundation and Vision)

Rotary is a group of Men and Women of varied ages, giving their passion and time to a common goal - to run projects large and small to benefit our community, while at the same time enjoying the network that is Rotary.

Rotary membership is open to all community minded men and women who feel they can help build a better life for others whether it be in our local area or international. Rotary members use their experience and expertise to create opportunities for building friendships, understanding and peace.

Rotary was the first community service organisation in the world and has, since 1905 grown to be recognised as a leader in providing aid, housing, medical relief, scholarships and research for the benefit of countless millions. Rotary has over 1.2 million members in over 200 countries. Rotary draws heavily from people in business, offering an outlet away from work routines, with added benefits of networking opportunities. Many members are now retired and they love the social nature of Rotary. Our aim is to involve you; no matter where you come from, whatever you do and whenever you're able, to do good in the world and bring a smile to the face of others.

 


 

This website offers you an insight into Rotary life. Some members have busy lives and dedicate a little time. Others invest many hours. Rotary offers members many opportunities - a chance to get involved at a level that suits your lifestyle and time in projects that match your personality.

Over 40 years ago Rotary undertook to "rid the world of polio". From this promise followed a strong relationship with UNICEF and has been recognised by Bill Gates to the extent that for every dollar Rotary raises, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation donates another two. We are so close. Why not become a friend of Rotary and help us to achieve this goal? Doing good in the world.

Our team looks forward to seeing you!

Meet our team. Hear a quality guest speaker.

We can explain a bit more about Rotary and our Club.
You won't be pressured to join .. but we'd love to show you some benefits!

Visitors from overseas and interstate clubs drop in as a 'make-up' while away from home. This can be a fascinating way to hear what Rotarians are doing in other parts of the world. Our own members reciprocate when travelling interstate or overseas by visiting other clubs. This is a magnificent way to make new friends and new connections.
