Stand Easy

"Stand Easy!" is a command to soldiers standing at ease that they may relax further easy.

Doesn't quite fit the context of our meeting but we - intentionally - do not have a speaker booked.  Nor is it a "Club Assembly".

Come prepared for fellowship while we stand easy for an hour!

Equine Therapy

Horses are sentient beings that have a connection with people that goes back through the centuries.  They are non-judgemental and have no expectations or hidden agendas.  A horse operates in the here and now and responds immediately and honestly to what is happening in its environment, and is expert in reading non-verbal signals and body-language.
 
It is these qualities that make them so valuable in the therapy programme.  Unlike other animals, they mirror human emotions, intent and body language, expose incongruencies that may arise, and provide vast opportunities for metaphorical learning.
 
Helen Sorensen, Owner of Equine Alliance will be presenting to us on Tuesday 3 April.  Come and learn more about Equine Therapy from Helen.

The first Australian firm to receive a licence to grow and produce legal canabis

Medifarm is the first Australian company to be licensed to cultivate and manufacture medicinal marijuana.   Medifarm has an exclusive international intellectual property partnership with Israeli based company, Tikun Olam, which pioneered world production 12 years ago.  Medifarm set the Australian standard in cultivation and manufacture of medical cannabis supported by evidence based clinical research.
 
Tikun Olam has provided the mother stock for Medifarm's medicinal marijuana plants.  In February, Medifarm was "hoping to have local production out the farm gate within the next three to four months" from a secure facility in a secret location on the Sunshine Coast.
 
Adam Benjamin will be our Guest Speaker on Tuesday, 10 April.

Gifted Kids Book Series

Giftedness is 24/7.  It cannot be turned off.  It can’t happen only between 9am-11am on Tuesdays.  What if you were gifted and there was nobody like you?  Would you want to stand out like a bright star against a velvety night sky? Or would you choose to hide by camouflaging your abilities?

Gloria van Donge has written a series of books about a family of five gifted cheetah cubs is designed to provide a few snapshots of the world of the gifted and talented child.

While written and illustrated on a child’s level, they also help adults become aware of some of the issues a gifted child could face.

The Role of the District Governor

District governors provide leadership, motivation, and guidance to Rotary clubs under the general supervision of the RI Board of Directors. Governors act as officers of RI, fostering achievement in their district at the club level.

Districts nominate governors 24-36 months before the governors take office.

Governors-nominee are elected at the RI Convention and serve as governors-elect for 12 months prior to taking office.

Responsibilities

During their term of service, governors:

  • Strengthen existing Rotary clubs, organize new clubs, and promote membership growth
  • Issue a monthly letter to each club president and secretary in the district
  • Support The Rotary Foundation and serve as a district and RI spokesperson, when appropriate
  • Hold a district conference and other district meetings
  • Ensure that district nominations and elections are conducted in accordance with the RI Constitution and Bylaws and established policies of RI

Visiting clubs

Each year, governors visit every Rotary club in the district to draw attention to important Rotary issues and provide special attention to weak or struggling clubs. The purpose of these visits is also to motivate Rotarians to participate in service activities and to personally recognize the outstanding contributions of Rotarians in the district. Visits may be conducted individually or with several clubs at the same time.
