Presidents Report 4/9/2013.

Welcome to my report.

Firstly our sympathy goes out to Bill and Helen with the sad loss in their family. We are all thinking of you in this sad time.

Happy Father’s Day to us, Oh and don’t forget the Grand Dad’s (Poppy’s). Where would we be without us?

Busy couple of weeks. The weeks are flying buy and don’t forget vote this Saturday 7th September 2013. Can’t wait for that!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday 25th August was the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon. What a great day and event. We were there flying the Rotary Club of Nambour 76 flag in gusto. The Sunshine Coast weather really turned on a beautiful day. Early start saw a stunning sun rise over the river, ask Alex to show you his happy snaps of the sun rise, great work Alex. Thanks to the team for your help, Alex, Ross, Marea and James, Graham, Bob, Hisashi, David Oliver, Kathy and not to forget El President. Great job team, cheering on the runners in their quest to run their feet off. What amazed me was the age scale of the runners and the different styles of the way people run, it was quite entertaining.

Sundale Dinner, This was another great night with great attendance by our club. Thanks to Sundale for inviting the club to wonderful diner, food was delicious and the catering staff did a fantastic job. John Kleinschmidt’s speech was very informative and I’m sure brought back many memories for the elders of our club.

Row for Cancer Event, Saturday 31st August, Bar was open. Thanks to Marea, Alex and Paul for attending. It was another lovely sunny day down by the river.

Monday this week is RYDA, Thanks to Ross for helping to set up at the last moment. Ross is a life saver when you need help.
