Announcements and News from Members

From Pres Geoff:

Geoff wished to acknowledge the passing of Claire Emmott's father and passed on the club's condolences to Claire and Tony.

Discussed also the prospect of a closer working relationship with Toastmasters.

Some information on the experience of the Lifeline organisation during this Coronavirus lockdown.

Spent some time on a zoom call with Rotary Dist Gov as well as AG's and Club Presidents.

Covid News from the Doc:

All going well, only a handfull of active cases left in WA. Brilliant job from our leaders and cooperation from the population. Some restrictions will be eased on May 18, including allowing restaurants to open with a maximum of 20 patrons and some easing of the regional borders, but we in Gero will still be cut off from Perth.

Club Membership with Pete Svensson -

Welcome to Liz Waddell, welcome also to Jo Clarke who has applied to transfer back into our club. Two big wins there!!

Liz Waddell provides some background on herself including the work she is doing with people with chronic illnesses.

Maja Kalinowska (IBES) - had a great birthday last Thursday. She was surprised by her host sister Caris D'Mello and the other local exchange students. She had cake, gifts and dinner and then a video hook up with her family in Poland. She says it was very emotional. MK thanks us for our wishes and presents.
