Volume 32, Issue No. 1- 2nd July 2018
Hey Bev! I'm coming back to Australia, to study at UNSW from mid july till january! Hope we can catch up, and hope I'll be welcome to join another Rotary meeting! I also had a question. Since I'm studying at UNSW I'll try to see if I can find somewhere to stay near Bondi or Coogee. Do you know of anyone renting out, or looking for a flat mate in the area, or does someone in the club might know of something! Will be lovely to see you all again. Xx

The Garage Sale
We have just had our best and most successful Garage Sale on the weekend of 7&8 October raising a record gross - north of $35k.
Excellent Project Management and a large number of dedicated volunteers, some putting in hours of effort, in the weeks before the weekend contributed to this result.
Monday 6:30pm for 7:00pm - Springfield House - 245 New Line Road, Dural 2158
If you are unable to attend or are bringing a guest (even if they are your partner) you must notify Carol.
Phone 8850 6515 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before 11am on the day of the meeting.
If you are expected and do not show you will be required to pay for the meal.
It was pleasing to see 27 members present and to welcome Kathryn Robinson as a potential member. Kathryn is being introduced by Carol.
Our guest speaker tonight was Abbey Cerone from NSW Fair Trading telling us about how to be aware of scams.
Changeover was a fabulous night based on the feedback. I apologise to those who ordered special meals. The event manager said they would be served according to seating places. The caterer said afterward that the guests had to request as meals being served, hence they were available but never served.
Angelo you received the Trevor Turner Award for best contribution as a newer member - I will present the shield on July 9 which is a partners night and Ann Turner can be available. As a result of success of Changeover the DG visit on Oct 22nd will be a partners night and a party night and maybe some outside entertainment.
I thank Bill for accepting the role of Bunnings BBQ coordinator with the help of Peter Stanton.
Noel Trevaskis, is retiring as South Pacific & Philippines RI Director, to hand over to Raffy Garcia III who begins his term as the Director from 1st July 2018. Noel has an opinion article in Rotary-on-the-move about where will Rotary will be in fifteen years time.
A quote from the equivalent of Hansard on the day!!!!
Could be considered a CLASSIC!!..
South African Parliament 22.04.18
Honourable Madisha: Half of people in this parliament are stupid!
Speaker: Hon. Madisha, please withdraw that statement.
Hon. Madisha: I withdraw that statement. Half of the people in this parliament are not stupid!
Speaker: Thank you. Let's proceed.
Since it was such a crappy day, I sat in my recliner and started thinking about life and came to realize that as I have grown older I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
Condoms don't guarantee safe sex anymore: a friend of mine was wearing one when he was shot by the woman's husband.
Lance Armstrong - I think it is just terrible and disgusting how everyone has treated Lance Armstrong, especially after what he achieved, winning 7 Tour de France races, while on drugs. Hell, when I was on drugs, I couldn't even find my bike.
Drive By - Someone broke into my house last week. They didn't take my TV, just the remote. Now they drive by and change the channels. The Sick bastards!!!
The Agony of Aging - On the morning that Daylight Savings Time ended, I stopped in to visit my aging friend. He was busy covering his penis with black shoe polish. I said to him, "You better get your hearing checked - You're supposed to turn your clock back".
Video Scam - Just got scammed out of $25. Bought Tiger Woods DVD entitled "My Favorite 18 Holes." Turns out it's all about golf.
Pregnant Prostitute - Doctor asks a pregnant prostitute, "do you know who the father is?" "Hey dumb ass, she replied, if you ate a can of beans would you know which one made you fart!"
Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember, amateurs built the Ark.
Professionals built the Titanic..
