Our newest member, Roy Quinn was inducted by President Vicki last week. Roy, introduced by Ross Jackson has moved here from Rockhampton. He is a Real Estate Specialist working for Landmark at Yandina. Welcome Roy and Diane.
At a recent club meeting the Rotary Club of Nambour 76 vowed to do whatever we can to stamp out the scourge of domestic violence. 
How we go about this will become clearer in the coming months. Some possibilities discussed so far are-
Fundraising to help local support services such as SunnyKids
Support and promotion of schemes such as White Ribbon
Do whatever we can to reduce the wait time at domestic violence hotline call centres.
Support education programs aimed at stopping domestic violence before it starts.
We are making the commitment and we are open to suggestions as to the best way to get the job done.
Council on Resolutions
In the past representatives of all Rotary Districts have met every 3 years to consider changes to how Rotary operates. Now this process is conducted on line every year, presumably at a considerable cost saving. Over the years there has been some very important resolutions that have been approved, going way back to allowing women to join Rotary and more recently, greater flexibility in how clubs operate. The results of the 2017 Council on Resolutions have just been released. The details can be found here - https://my.rotary.org/en/cor/vote There doesn't appear to be any resolutions of great importance so perhaps it's just as well that the cost of the process has been reduced.
Congratulations to the winners of our Christmas Raffle. We conducted the draw at our meeting last Wednesday. First prize was ticket number 732, Ardyn Morton from Mapleton and second prize (number 156) went to David Niesler of Nambour. Thank you to everyone who supported the raffle by buying tickets, to Nambour Mill Village for allowing us to sell in the Coles entryway and a special thanks to Steve Gibbins for his generous donation of the prizes.
Last week's guest speaker, Pieta Ball is the Key Relationships Manager for SunnyKids whose headquarters are in Price St. SunnyKids' mission is “To work with children, families and communities to help everyone take responsibility for the future” and Pieta had some examples of how they do this and some scary statistics to demonstrate why the need is so great. For  details of their services have a look at http://www.sunnykids.org.au/services.
