Our Last Meeting
Rino Canto was our guest speaker this morning.  He is General Manager of the Opal Aged Care home at Birtinya.  He and Customer Services Manager, Pam spoke warmly about the home and its well-appointed facilities.  While many of us have no desire to become a resident, the hotel like nature of the property could be an appealing enticement.  Invitations were issued to some and politely declined.  There are 147 residents (including our Norm) and 109 staff.  Bernie asked whether Opal would be interested in our embryonic headphone project for those suffering from dementia.  There were many other questions from our members and guests.
Photo Competition winners workshop
Barry John Alsop of gave his up Sunday in his busy schedule to mentor children in his craft - a privilege for us to witness.  The vision of a bigger and better children’s photography competition next year lives on and is shared by Barry and Caloundra Rotary.
See some photos of the workshop in action here - the next instalment will be the results of the tuition as each student has been asked to share their best photos of the day.
