Weekly Message - 10th April
Last week’s meeting was one with the emphasis on youth. Abbotsleigh Interact members Mackenzie Garside and Annie Zhang were accompanied by their teacher Janine Cooper, assistant (and sister) to Lynne Bradfield with the Interact Club.
Over the past twelve months we have been discussing with Lynne Bradfield the possible involvement of the Interact members in helping to sort and repatriate foreign coins. I advised Janine that we would organise a visit to explain the coin program in detail.
Our nomination for Youth Exchange, Heidi Green and her father, Chris, were also present as well as the birthday boy Jonas and host mother Kylie.
Ralf recounted his experience of the cyclone on Hayman Island – an in-depth account of surviving this scary event.
Name badges and pins are being organised by Peter. Also T shirts, hats and aprons are in the process of being chosen and will be available in due course.
Many thanks to Gail for organising our cruise on the Hawkesbury - weather perfect, company perfect and a wonderful day, including a pleasant trip by rail. Let’s do it again.
Yours in Rotary
Good weather, great company... what more could we have asked?
