Conference Great Success

The combined Rotary Districts 9710 and 9675 Annual Conference was held last weekend, and was regarded by attendees as a great success. The theme for the Conference was Our Youth Our Future, and the speakers mainly fitted in with this theme. Our club was reasonably well represented, with two of our newer members being amongst our contingent. Pictured above is the opening event, the Flag Ceremony, in which our YEP student, Blandine Lens, participated.

Also at the Conference, DG's spouse, Denise Tompsett, officially launched her project for the year which is intended to relieve malnutrition in children in Timor Leste.  Denise wishes to assist in funding HIAM Health, through a raffle, with six prizes having a total value of $5,000, and has provided books to each club in the district with the request that we endeavour to sell these tickets over the next few months. Tickets are $5 each. Please contact me if you are willing to assist in this.

The Rotaract Club of Canberra is manning the barbeque at the Tuggeranong Festival in Tuggeranong Town Park this weekend, and would like more assistance from our members on the shifts on Saturday and Sunday. If you can help, please contact their President, Rory Tarnow-Mordi on 0421 156 024 or myself.

A reminder that the Seniors Concert is fast approaching. Organiser Natalie Vandepeer-Bradley and her assistants, Barbara Griffiths and Helen Moore will be looking to you all to contribute in some way to making this another memorable community event for our club. Please try and assist when asked.

Yvonne Luxford is co-ordinating our contribution to the campaign to control the Ebola epidemic in Africa. If you wish to assist in this, please contact Yvonne.

Finally, a reminder that the club's AGM will be held on the last weekly meeeting day of 2014, 8 December. This will also be the meeting at which our YEP student, Blandine Lens, makes her presentation to the Club, so it is a meeting not to be missed.
