President's Changeover
Last week was the second of our quarterly presidential changeovers. Gordon Downing was installed as our 3rd president for this year following on from Bernie Bruton (July to September) and Bill Turner (October to December). Gerald Robertson takes over from April to June.
Our rather unusual experiment with 4 presidents for the year is working well so far.
Also last week we were treated to a very interesting talk by former member and past president, John Stevenson. John is a member of the Buderim Men's Shed and he described how the shed had grown from modest beginnings to be one of the largest in Australia. They are almost ready to move into brand new purpose built premises in Kuluin.
We also held a board meeting last week. Minutes are below.

General Business:
Bunnings BBQ was a success, approx. $1700 profit for the day, several trips to replenish supplies (70kg sausages, 49 loaves of bread and 26kg onions). We have been given another bbq on the 28th March
Bruce suggested that we contact Sylvia Arce Moreno from Ecobox to be a guest speaker as she approached him at the last bbq re her company getting Rotary to sponsor a recycling point. Bernie to follow up.
At the last cluster meeting, the clubs were told that District will sponsor each club up to $1000 as a grant to help promote membership. It was decided that Nambour 76, Nambour and Woombye combine to organize a lift out pamphlet to be inserted in the local free papers. Watch this space for further developments.
Gordon (the new President) has offered to host an Australia Day BBQ at his property,, to be held on the Monday holiday and this would be used in lieu of the meeting the following Wednesday. Suggested that he provide the meat and the ladies all bring a salad or sweet. A charge of about $15 (perhaps) to be charged and this then donated to The Shack.
Gordon also wants to resurrect the idea of a Progressive dinner ( they were very successful in days gone by and a great social night).
Meeting closed at 5.40pm
