Last Week's Program



Our Meeting of 23 July
We enjoyed Kris Adam's lunar quiz and we recalled where we were when that one small step was taken.
Announcements, News and Help Required
COMEDON (COordinator of MEmber DONations) to The Rotary Foundation, Eddie, reported he had sent to the Sydney Office the following amounts for the last half year:
Annual Programs Fund $1,102 and PolioPlus  $1,967 = a total of $3,069 and thanked the 30 members involved and whose donations  averaged out at $100.
Eddie also indicated that when we add the $1,030.50 APF and $587.55 ($1,618) sent at the end of the first half year, plus $1,184 sent in lieu of Ride the Bellarine and $241 during October's $26.50 Appeal, the overall donations by members for the year amounted to $6,112.
He then highlighted the fact that of that $6,112, just on $3,979 had gone to PP which meant that with the Gates match of two for one, PolioPlus had benefited by just on $12,000 as a result of our members' donations to TRF last year.

Tree Planting – Sunday 28 July

We had fourteen people helping making it an easy morning work weather was most kind to have full sun and no wind all the time we were there.
We had Pres. Tony and Chris, Janine, Adam and Freddy, Joan and Allan, Jenny and Robyn, Adrian, Warren, Phoebe and Harrison.
Was a great work and friendship day.
Many thanks to you all.
