Presidents Report Jan 14 2018.
 
Hi to All,
We had a very relaxing start to the year at Rotary Park as we eased into 2018.  Thank you to Terry and Alwyn Williams for allowing us to use their home, and providing us with support to make our ’Picnic in the Park’ a success. There are some great pictures on our web site under Photo Gallery, so check them out.  We had many family members from those honoured with the memorial plaques in attendance and other past members.
These memorial seats in Rotary Park were designed and manufactured by Peter Rowlands and will be an asset in Rotary Park for people to enjoy for many years in the future.
 
January and particularly February are going to be very busy. We need help on Australia Day helping with the Candy Floss Machine. We also have the District Conference, Rotary Vehicle Fellowship week end and of course Relay For Life. Our Relay for Life Team’s name is “Rotary Wheelers” as we are working together with the Inner Wheel Club.  We need your support for this so please register as soon so as possible.
 
See you all next Tuesday,
 
Regards,
 
Greg.

Happy New Year.   

 

Some of our members will be heading off to Balibo this year and one of the things they will be doing on their trip is giving consumables to the schools they visit.   

NOW is the time to buy them.  So we are hoping you may be able to help.  What ever you can obtain can be given to Roger Thornton either at one of our meetings or at his Office.  

If you tell the people in the stores why you are after the goods there is a chance you can arrange a bulk purchase.  It’s an easy thing for our Club Members to support and some people enjoy the challenge.

 

 

The Students in Balibo need your help.

 

Providing students in developing countries with basic material is one of the most effective ways of ensuring they have a better future.  The schools we are supporting in the Balibo, one of the poorest areas in Timor Leste are detailed in the attached.  The basics they need are very affordable when the “Back to School Specials” are on.  Unfortunately it is difficult to arrange bulk orders when the goods are on special, so we are seeking your help.   We are not looking for heroics only asking people to be on the lookout when they are shopping and to buy a few items.  If you have the chance to obtain a bulk order the Project will cover the cost.

 

I hope you will be able to assist.

 

 

These are the stores where the goods we need are generally available.  Yellow = In stock  Green = available 10/1
