This Week

This week we hope to be hearing from Tayne Mann.  Tayne is the student we sponsored to attend the National Youth Science Forum during the school Christmas break.  I have been reliably informed that Tayne is a lovely young man who is a very good speaker.  While his attendance still has to be confirmed it should be an informative and entertaining night.

If Tayne is unable to come this week there will be another guest speaker.  Check with Torin's Monday weekly reminder for final details.


Next Week

Board Meeting


Last Week

Last week we heard from Nicole Harvey from Coast Shelter.  Nicole told of the outstanding and vital work undertaken by the team at Coast Shelter and in particular their work at the Women's Refuge in the Toukley area.

Their achievements with diminishing resources is truly inspiring. 

The outcome of the evening is the very likelihood of our club becoming involved in a hands-on project in resurrecting and further developing the children's playground at the refuge.

It is important to remember is that all Rotarians must register with the Red25 program to make their donation count.
Obviously the real winners will be the patients in hospital.
