Volume 34, Issue No. 8 - 24 August 2020
Another interesting meeting this week.
Before the meeting we were enthralled to hear of Colin McGowan’s ongoing battle to get NBN installed! Looking forward to the next episode.
Great work by Peter Stanton for obtaining the Sanofi grant, Tony Coote for organising our first get together (fingers crossed), Colin Baxter for his elaborate birthday celebrations, and Paul Laroumanie for his interesting talk on his family members involved with The Great War. What a club!
We then heard from Harold Sharp, OAM about ROMAC about which he is passionate. The annual budget is $750,000 and there are no corporate sponsors! With Covid restrictions the program is on hold but there are 20 children who are waiting help. Thank you, Harold, for your time and interest.
Our sergeant Max led a riotous session where members had to use the Reactions button to guess True or False. The resulting winner was George.
Don’t forget to let Colin Sharpe know if you are interested in Virtual Neighbours and remember to give the Rotary Leadership Institute a go.
As a finale, Harold congratulated the club for such an interesting meeting. What an accolade for us as Harold attends many Zoom meetings. Well done all!

The Garage Sale 2019
We have just had our best and most successful Garage Sale on the weekend of 12 & 13 October raising a 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.
