President's Message

Greetings

At our last meeting we were blessed by our guest speaker from Special Olympics Central Coast; Marilyn, Sandy, Bev and Ty.
Marilyn's passionate presentation and dedication reminded us of the importance and inclusion of those with an intellectual disability in the community. They have every right to enjoy what is common to all of us. We need to keep their financial need in front of us.

The rendition of 'New York New York' by Ty was the climax of the evening. 

There are upcoming meetings we need your total involvement:

18 April - Kylie becoming our latest member of Rotary

16 May - Pride of Workmanship Awards (please register meals on line)

13 June - Community Raffle draw - Hali Bowling Club

20 June - Change Over and Beneficiaries night.

"Being disabled should not mean being disqualified from having access to every aspect of life.” Emma Thompson

Regards & blessings

David

Last Meeting 4th April 2018

 

Special Olympics Central Coast

4th April 2018 

Speakers - Marilyn Caruana

Chairperson SOA Central Coast

 

Attending with Marilyn were 2 athletes, Ty McGill and Sandy Caruana who is Marilyn's daughter. Ty is totally blind with a wonderful voice, treated us to a great rendition of New York... New York.

 

Some background information:

Special Olympics began in Australia in 1976 when many people with an intellectual disability were shut in institutions. While this is no longer the norm in Australia, we continue to seek public support to ensure that people with an intellectual disability are not shut out. By helping us give them opportunities to play sport, together we can open the door to personal achievement, pride and inclusion for some of the marginalized and isolated members of our community.

RCNT INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS: 

Rotarians Against Malaria – an activity of Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS)

Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM) is a volunteer-run organisation working to eliminate malaria. Fifteen years ago, malaria killed a child every 30 seconds. Under the Millennium Development Goals, however, considerable progress has been made in preventing, diagnosing and treating malaria. As a result, deaths have fallen by 60 percent. Now, under the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals, we are aiming to reduce malaria cases and deaths by a further 90 percent by 2030.

This Week's Humour

 

The very first ever Blond Guy joke..... And well worth the  wait!!!!


An  Irishman ,  a  Mexican  and a  Blond  Guy  were doing  construction work on  scaffolding on the 20th floor of a   building.

They were  eating lunch and  the Irishman  said,  'Corned beef and cabbage! If I get  corned beef  and cabbage one more time for lunch,  I'm going to jump off  this  building.'

The Mexican opened his lunch  box  and  exclaimed, 'Burritos again! If I get  burritos one  more time I'm going to jump off,  too.'

The   blond    opened his lunch and   said,  '   Bologna again! If I get a bologna sandwich  one  more time, I'm jumping  too.'

The next day, the Irishman  opened his lunch  box, saw corned beef and  cabbage, and jumped to his   death.

The  Mexican opened his  lunch, saw a burrito, and jumped,   too.

The  blond guy opened his  lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his  death  as well.

At  the funeral, the  Irishman's wife was weeping. She said, 'If I'd   known how really tired he was of corned beef and  cabbage, I never  would have given it to him  again!'

The  Mexican's wife also wept  and said, 'I could have given him tacos  or  enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos  so  much.'


(Oh this  is  GOOD!!)?



Everyone  turned and stared  at the blonde’s wife. The blonde’s wife   said,


'Don't  look at me. He makes  his own lunch  ..'
