We had a casual but interesting evening for President Gerald 's  first full night in the chair. With no guest speaker scheduled we had a round table on the subject of "what happened to me this week". 
 
Gerald's first board meeting was held before the meeting and the minutes are below.
 
The Caravan, Camping, Fishing & 4x4 Expo starts this Friday and we should have the roster from Nambour any day now.
 
Minutes of  Meeting of Office Bearers of Rotary Club Nambour 76
Held at Golf Club Nambour on Wednesday 17th April 2019
Present:                       Gerald Robertson, Bernie Bruton, Bill and Helen Turner, Gordon Downing and Vicki Paul.
 
Apologies were received from Graham Robertson and Paul Frahm. 
 
Minutes:                      Moved by Helen Turner seconded by Gordon Downing that the minutes of the previous meeting be accepted.   
 
Treasurer’s Report      Bruce tabled the financial reports, which had been previously circularised.  He reported that $25,000 had been received for the RYDA project.  He also reported that there are a couple of amounts of money outstanding. 
 
He commented on the Bunnings cash flow barbeque money. Moved Bruce seconded Bill Turner that the financial report be adopted. 
 
General business:    Bill reported that Lindel Greggery had done some short press release work.  FM109 had been given material. 
 
A flyer was going in the free paper and there would be a letter drop.
 
The membership night is scheduled for the 15th May.
 
Gerald talked about district grants up to $5,000 each to be in by the end of May. He had spoken to Dale from the Shack whose looking at furniture packages for their living units.  There was discussion as to how this could be progressed.  
 
It was made abundantly clear that the grants would not be given until such time as each item of furniture to be purchased was able to be described, priced, supported by invoices. It was agreed that until such time as Dale and his committee can formalise the living units arrangements this is probably not going to happen.  It was decided that we would put the prospect of getting a grant for the Shack off for the year.  
Bill tabled a summary of grants that are available to be obtained.  He agreed that he would need to peruse and bring back a report on the extensive paperwork.  It was decided that if possible we should apply to get funds to replace our laptop computer, speakers, a new screen and a cupboard for storing all of this.
 
There was discussion about the Rock n Roll dance that Alex had brought to the table.  It is scheduled for the 6th July at Hungerford Hall, moved by Bill and seconded by Bernie that we do it.  
 
Gordon talked about the funds raised in Australia for some of the extreme events that Australia has suffered e.g. droughts, floods, fires.  He had previously circularised a report on the two not for profit organisations that had raised money and hay for the drought.  His point of view was that Rotary should be at the forefront of this operation.  We have the resources, the skills, the network.  The nearest thing that we have to this is Rotary Australia World Community Service commonly called RAWCS.  George Grant is in charge of that part of the Rotary world.  Bernie is to invite George to come along and talk to us.
 
It was decided that we should have our club meeting on the 9th May which is a Thursday at Coolum for the RYLA get together.  This would be put to the club later that evening.
 
Gordon read the two pieces of correspondence and it was agreed that there was nothing to be done in relation to same except that Bill would put one piece of correspondence on the Bulletin next week. 
 
Closing.    The meeting closed at 5:50pm.
