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

Friday 7th September 2018

Hi Members,                                                                                      

Looks like the rain is passing us on the Coast, but still no relief inland. More of what we are doing to help, later in this Round Up.

1. Last Week. 

Wow, what a great guest speaker we had. Mark Skinner from “The Board Meeting Surf Charity” gave us a terrific presentation, of the wonderful work their organisation are doing on the Coast. Their dynamic team of volunteers are active in helping local kids in need. His power point presentation brought tears to my eyes. It brought home to all of us, how there is so much need in the Community, where funds are not available from Government sources. I will be discussing with the Board, how we can assist them.

2. Bunnings.

Thanks to those volunteers at Bunnings yesterday. $ (still counting!) Profit and $150 in the Drought Relief Bucket.  Good work. 

3. Tait Duke Cottage.

Hooray, the old furniture has gone. Peter (muscles) and the Duke family carried the items out and the furniture, now has a new home, in Gympie.

4. Board Meeting.

September’s Board Meeting will be at 4.30pm next Tuesday at the Cottage.  All welcome. We will then adjourn to the RSL for refreshments and dinner. 

5. Extraordinary Meeting.

The requisite Notice has been given by the Secretary, of the meeting on Tuesday 18th September, to approve changes to the Constitution. Would those unable to come, send to Roscoe their Proxy Vote. This is very important, as we need a majority of 75% for the amendments to pass.

6. Absentees.

Both Kevin and I will both be away, for the regular meeting on the18th September. Charles will be in charge.  We will also be away for the Social on the 25th September. (Toowoomba Festival of Flowers with Probus). At this stage we do not have a guest speaker on the 18th and nothing has yet been organised for the Social on the 25th. Something is bound to happen, Rob normally has some good ideas. I am also away on the 2nd October. (Fraser Island). I will try and do a Round Up, but a bit tricky from Fraser. 

7. Car Classic.

It’s on again, Sunday 30th September. Ernie has contacted you all for availability. It’s always great fun and a good money spinner for the Club. 

8. Singin' for the Rain.

I have distributed 150 tickets for sale to members, clubs etc. Please contact all your friends etc. so we can get a full house. The “J” are organising ticketing and you can get tickets online, or by picking them up, at their reception in the Junction. I am meeting with the Noosa News next week, to get a spread in the local paper. Carl has also been in touch with Radio and TV Stations and the Noosa Today paper.

We will need help on the day, more of this closer to the time. 

9.Combined Lions/Rotary meeting.

We had a very productive meeting on Wednesday evening. Michael Roach from Lions is the Drought Relief co-ordinator for their District, which takes in the Western Queensland Towns of Emerald, Longreach, Springsure and Winton. These are the Lions distribution centres. Rotary are strong in Longreach and we gather both Lions and Rotary are working closely together there. We decided that future publicity here in Noosa will carry the slogan:  “Adopt a Town”. Money from our joint fund raising efforts to be channelled to one of these Towns, possibly Longreach. Longreach Lions/Rotary will then decide, which one of the smaller Towns in their area is in the most need. The whole thrust of the exercise is to keep the small Towns alive, by getting cash to the Farmers to spend locally.

Lions are also holding a musical function on the river in October for Drought relief, so this combined with our “SIngin’ for the Rain”, should amount to a significant contribution. I know that most Clubs in our Cluster, like ours, have already raised considerable funds, which can be added to the pot. 

10. Santa’s Classy Helpers Charity.

Jacqui suggested, we should help Lorraine at Classy Lady with her Charity. Most will be aware, that they collect during the year Grocery/Pharmacy items at their monthly tea/lunches. These are then distributed at the “J” to 250 families, approx 800 children at Christmas time. These families having been identified by Salvation Army, St. Vinnies, United Synergy etc. as being in dire straights. I spoke with Lorraine today and the Grocery items they are collecting this month are Milo, Vegemite, Peanut Butter and Nutella. I think it would be a nice idea, if we all contributed a tin or jar, of one of these items and bring them to the next meeting. I will then get them to Lorraine.What do you all think. Totally voluntary, but it should give you a warm and fuzzy feeling.

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.
