Presidents Report 19/2/2014.

Welcome to my report.

Last week’s meeting we were visited by Bryan Mason OAM who gave a presentation on ROMAC. Bryan is truly inspirational, his presentation on the big screen pulled at everyone’s heart strings. The work the team at ROMAC makes such a huge difference to children’s lives with treatment to their injuries and conditions they are forced to live with and do not have access to the medical facilities in their countries. Fantastic job team and congratulations for your results.

Jan Lawton also visited to introduce our Australia/New Zealand Exchange Student for 2014, Samantha Fraser. Samantha gave a talk about her exchange trip to New Zealand and I’m sure you all join me in wishing her well for this wonderful experience. Have a great time Sam.
