Presidents Report 26/2/2014.

Welcome to my report.

I would like to thank everyone for attending our meetings each week and congratulate you for our club’s attendance record. In the last District Governors Newsletter our attendance rate is 82%. We are up there with the best of them. Great work team.

A point of interest, this week council is voting on the Tram Way Project at Thursday’s council meeting. It will be interesting to hear their decision.

I will be attending President Elects Training Seminar 2014 (PETS) this weekend, 1st and 2nd March. This year the seminar will be held at Ramada Resort at Marcoola. Kath will also be accompanying me.

Last week we had a wonderful guest speaker Lucille Watson and Lucille’s husband Windsor came along in support. Alex, Thank you for introducing our guests. Lucille and Windsor own and operate Thrill Hill Water Park along with their family for the past 28 years. It was interesting to hear of their travels and the story of Dorothy Brooke with her love for animals in particular horses and the work she did with war time horses left behind after the wars. The Brooke foundation are certainly doing a great job caring for these animals in countries like the middle east who rely on their animals to do so many tasks day to day.
