Presidents Report 7/8/2013.

Welcome everyone to my first report, a bit late but some might say better late than never.

Thank you for your great feed back on the Changeover lunch. Great to see everyone had a good time and delicious lunch. It was wonderful to see our District Governor, Trevor Taylor and his wife Robyn enjoyed their time with us.

Our first meeting also was a good night celebrating Bob Sellars anniversary of 50 Years in Rotary, Great milestone for Bob to reach. It was wonderful to see everyone and partners come out to help celebrate this event with Bob and Lex.

Last week was the combined meeting with Woombye Palmwoods, Nambour 76 and Nambour Clubs. The DG’s visit with Joe Kearney ADG chairing the meeting. Another good night with reports from each club President. Leading up to this meeting the club president’s and Assistant DG meet to discuss future combined projects. Melanie Ferguson has a project in mind of raised garden beds to be built at Mary Mackillop Village, Carter Road, Nambour. We all agreed this would be good combined project to take back to our club’s for endorsement. We were also asked by organizers of the Sunshine Coast Marathon to man road closed points on Sunday 25th August 2013. Our services will be required from 5.30am to 12.00 Midday. We would need 40 people to man these locations. This would also be a combined club project raising approx $2,500 shared between the clubs.

The club board will meet for the first time this Tuesday, 6th August. The board will meet on the first Tuesday of each month.
