Youth Program Reports

This week's meeting focused on two of our prominent Youth programs - RYPEN and MUNA. Two of our representatives attending these events, Georgia Connery and Natalie Pinder, from Canberra Girls Grammar School, attended our meeting and presented their reports. Georgia attended MUNA (Model United Nations Assembly) and Natalie attended RYPEN (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment), and both girls showed why these programs are so worthwhile. They were accompanied by CGGS teacher, Anthea Van Leent. Natalie and Georgia are pictured above, flanked by Anthea and myself.

Floriade is now in full swing, and our major contribution to the Grnomes project of Canberra East, the school holiday period, commences next Tuesday. If you are rostered on over this period, please note that in your diaries if not already done.

At this week's meeting, I gave a summary of the important actions and decisions made at the last Board meeting. Principal among these was the decision taken to adopt the "Safe Shelter" project put forward by Richard Griffiths as the initial ROC-Up project. ROC-Up is intended to be a platform on which members of Rotary and Rotaract can work together equally, with participation also of the non-member general public. It is hoped that we can gain good publicity from this initiative and perhaps introduce new people to Rotary. For further details and to get involved, please contat Richard.

Our meetings at the Commonwealth Club now go into recess until 20 October. The next two Mondays are public holidays in the ACT, on which we do not meet, and the first meeting afte the holidays is a Vocational Visit to the AIS, being organised by Govert Mellink.

Enjoy your break from Rotary meetings. Natalie and I are taking the opportunity for a short holiday in New Zealand, and we look forward to seeing most of you at the AIS on ours return.
