Sarge Macca with Queen Victoria!

Announcements!

Douglas Bruce:    advised on his disappointment at the lack of interest from other Gero Clubs for a Halloween party on October 30th.  Some murmerings from the floor and then Sarge advised Douglas to proceed with the plans and we would have the party on our own!

Geoff Wood :  thanked his helpers at this week’s Nagle Careers Expo.

Geoff, Bill and BT and the lovely Paige Horo talked to students about the Rotary Exchange program and the opportunities it provides. Next expo we would benefit from having a screen and projecting the laptop story on to a larger screen.  Geoff said that had a good chat with year 10 and 11 students and much interest was shown for the Student Exchange program.

Peter Svensson:     reminded members of the upcoming “Spring into Alice” vrtual conference to be held this week 19/20 September.

The conference included a number of well known speakers, Jennifer Jones,Noel Trevaskis, Jessie Harman Holger Knaack, Ian Risley and Stuart Heal.

Some Rotary clubs have re-arranged their regular club meeting schedule and have held their meeting during a Conference link up. (to include a  wine up dine up lunch).

Peter also advised that a small committee was now in place to expedite plans for the Soap Box Derby.   However, a place would be made available for another talented Soap Box Derby expert  member should they put their hand up!!!

 

Story from the floor:  Bill thought he would simplify the process by suggesting to some students that they might like to have an exchange to the home country of their parents/grandparents or even great grandparents.     Bills question to a young student .. “Where would you like to go”.

Ireland was the reply.  Good I said.  Which part of Ireland?   Don’t know was the reply.

What do you mean. You don’t know, I said.   Well, she said..  I never met my biological Father!  Next student please!
