Our first meeting for the year was a casual Vocational Visit to the Caloundra Lighthouses organised by Daryl.
The meeting was chaired by member Roger Todd who also happens to be honorary architect for the Friends of the Caloundra Lighthouses.
Roger's involvement with the lighthouses goes back to the 1990s when the modern Signal Station had been decommissioned and the old 1896 lighthouse was at Golden Beach after being moved there in 1970 after the new lighthouse, signal station and radar installation had been first built.
Roger thanked the Friends and members who attended and helped with guided tours, John and Donnalea, John Bradley, Julia, Sandy, John and Janice Groves, and River.
It was President Bernie's birthday, and she was given a card signed by the members.

President's report

Ron and President Bernie are still having issues with their internet, but Bernie was able to sent through this request for help from Rotary Club of Petrich in Bulgaria. 

Dear fellow Rotarians

I hereby enclose a short presentation of our latest project "Life is born in Petrich" which is of utmost significance for our local community.

The project is directed to handling one of the most pressing needs of our community - the lack of conditions for adequate medical care for mothers and their newborns in the maternity ward in the town of Petrich.
I'm sure Bernie will follow up at our next meeting.
