How time flies half my year gone with a busy start to 2024.
Our first meeting at Johnson was a great start with thanks to Hugh Barker and Imperial Football Club-for a successful night.
The meeting on Tuesday night is at the Wellington Hotel to say thanks for their support for the Calendar project, without sponsors our success would be much harder.
Please don’t forget we’re meeting at the Swanport Hotel carpark to carpool, leaving at 5.30pm sharp.
Our Meet and Greet meeting on Tuesday 30th January is at Johnson Park so please put your thinking caps on and invite someone along, our club’s survival depends on attracting new members.
Monaro Safari Park fencing is up and running again and we’re looking forward to more joining us, it’s a good time for fun and fellowship so come along.
As we heard Tuesday night BlazeAid is also looking for volunteers to help with the flood affected fencing in our region.
Save the date for our 70th Birthday celebration coming up on Saturday 9th March at the Bridgeport Hotel. We are looking for any memorabilia of old photos, videos or stories that might be of interest, can you please contact Jenny Phillips or myself if you can help. With a lot happening keep an eye on the Bulletin for what’s going on.
See you Tuesday night for a great social night at the Welly.

"Buy A Smile" Update

"Rotarians Do Good"
Buying a Smile for Nani, who lives in Malaysia, is a Project for our Rotary Club, promoted through the International Committee.
Our Rotary Club recipient of ‘Buy a Smile’ corrective facial surgery, Nani, is now recovering from the operation, and our contact Neil Silver reports that all is well.
Early in February a medical review of the operation on Nani will be undertaken, and in the fulness of time I am confident we will learn more about this young lady as she faces a more certain future in her community in Sandakan, Sabah, a province in Malaysia.” Reported by Sam Cozens on behalf of our International Committee.
