First off this week, some sad news -  Justin Crosby, brother of Peter, died on Thursday after a 2 year battle with cancer. Justin's funeral will be held at Stella Maris Catholic Church, Baden Powell Street, Maroochydore tomorrow, Monday 20th at 11.30am. I have passed on our condolences to Peter and Marilyn.

On a brighter note, Peter is doing well. He is back at work in a limited capacity and able to get around fairly well as long as he doesn't overdo things. We wish him well in his recovery.

I have had a late advice (with an apology) of Cooroy Club's 20th Anniversary tomorrow (Monday) night. If anyone needs a makeup - the details are 6:30 for 7:00 at Cooroy RSL. Cost $25. And don't forget Woombye-Palmwoods' 20th Anniversary next Monday.

Last week it was good to hear from our speaker Dennis Morris about the Rural Fire Service and in particular, the Palmwoods brigade. The meal at the Emperor was really good but I guess one problem with the venue is that it's a bit small and the seating is a bit haphazard.

This week we are back at the Golf Club and we do not have a guest speaker organized because we need to have yet another discussion on the future of our club. I think we are at the stage where we need to vote on the question "Does The Rotary Club of Nambour 76 hand in its charter". Your board has discussed this at length and it's now time for the club to decide. If you are not going to be at the meeting then please let me know your thoughts beforehand.
