Presidents Report 25/9/2013.

Welcome to my report.

Election? And still counting the recount, who will take it out???????

It was interesting for you to at last meet Mai Yamanaka (NYSF), sounds like she will have a very busy time at the forum next year.

I am meeting with Melanie Ferguson (Woombye Palmwoods Club) and Alan Sharp (Nambour Club) this Saturday, 28th September at 8.00am to discuss where to from here with the combined project (Garden Beds) at MacKillop Village, Carter Road, Nambour. I invite any of our members to join me to help voice our input into this project. Please let me know on Wednesday night if you intend to join me. I would like some support.

Melaine has also extended an invitation to a social night at Empire Organics, Mitchell Street, Nambour on Friday 18th October. Each Friday night they have a local jazz pianist, Laura Mitchell playing the piano. Cost is $34 per head; food is spectacular and exceptionally good value. The restaurant is BYO. We need to RSVP by 10th October.

Lionel, (Nambour Club) has contacted me regarding combined club presence in down town Nambour for World Polio Day, October 24 (Thursday) End Polio Now handouts. Combined 6 member team to hand out information to public on Rotary’s amazing polio eradication program. Anyone interested in joining this team? 2 hours over lunch time 12.00pm to 2.00pm. Maybe two sites, Nambour Plaza and new Nambour Mill Village site. Not sure as yet.

Charmaine Wheatly, Buderim Club, invited us to attend a fundraiser event, The Great Gatsby Gala Fundraiser, Sunday 20th October 2013, 5pm, Cost $35 per head, Buderim Tavern. Sounds like it will be a good event.
