Presidents Report 23/4/2014.

 

Welcome to my report.

 

Well that’s Easter done and dusted, hope everyone had a good Easter weekend. It certainly went very quickly.

 

Last week’s guest speaker Carol Van der Gaag who spoke about Medicare Local and registering online to their data base with your own medical information and create your own electronic health record. Mixed reaction amongst our members. Everyone will have to make up their own mind up to register or not. Thank you Carol for your time to come and inform us of this system. Not many of us knew of its existence.

 

Bruce gave us an update on our RANZSE student Samantha Fraser. Sam is now over in New Zealand having the time of her life. Thanks Bruce for keeping us informed.

 

Mai will be our guest speaker on 23rd April 2014 to give an update on NYSF. Mai will not be joining us for dinner but will arrive at 7pm to speak.

 

This week we have some celebrations,

Queen’s Birthday, Monday 21st April, (Born 1926)

William Shakespear’s Birthday, Wednesday 23rd April, (1564-1616)

ANZAC Day 25th April 1915 (99th Anniversary).

I personally like to attend the dawn service every year. I feel it’s a very emotional time of remembrance of the fallen.

 

The Ode

 

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them”

Lest We Forget.
