Deborah introduced Clive, who she met at a wedding expo in Maleny

He was speaking on his latest project Family Heritage Photos

from his Facebook page
Clive Waring speaking to members at
Rotary Club of Caloundra
this morning on creating a family heirloom photo album for future generations to enjoy. How to combine restored old family photos and combining digital photos of grandchildren to create a powerful family story of 5 generations.
Our identity is one of our greatest treasures, and it is our hands to pass the family history to future generations
Photos have great value, but if it's a case of "who the heck is that" they will probably end up in the bin - so make notes - and it's a family project

Chris thanked Clive

“The Rotary Club of Maroochydore is hosting the Australian Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians  (AGFR) at the Maroochy River Golf Club between 16 and 21 May 2021.  Yes, a week event and 4 games of golf for past and present Rotarian Golfers and 3 games for guest golfers.
There are also numerous functions and plenty of fun and great FELLOWSHIP to be had.  You never know what this may lead to in the years to come.  For example, my parents have been going to these events for over 20 years and many attend more to see the friends they have met than the golf.
 If you are local to the Sunshine Coast, we understand your partner may not be interested in the tours, however if you attend future events, please note the event is well organised for non-golfing partners as well with local tours organised whilst the golf is on.
 Here is a link to the AGFR website for more information and where you will find a link 'Tournament 2021' to take you to the Maroochydore event information and registration form . Registrations close on 31 March 2021 and numbers are limited.”
