Next Tuesday's Meeting
On 11 April, our sister club, the Rotary Club of Komaki is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its Charter on 1 February 1968.  Joining the celebrations will be several of our members who will stay two nights home-hosted.  Before or after, some will be enjoying a land tour and others will be joining the Diamond Princess Spring Flowers voyage 13-20 April.
Les & Joy Walsh spent 21 days on board Diamond Princess around Japan in June/July last year - their fourth visit to Japan.  Les will tell us on Tuesday morning something of the ports being visited and of his & Joy's June cruise.
Rotary's Vision Statement
Rotary’s strategic plan provides the framework for our future, ensuring that we continue to be known as a respected, dynamic organisation that advances communities worldwide.
The strategic plan evolves with the aspirations of Rotarians.  It is shaped by regular input from members through surveys, focus groups, committees, and meetings, so it can continue to help us achieve our goals.
In June, Rotary’s Board of Directors and Trustees approved a new vision statement for the organisation:
“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
The new vision statement helps us set a future course so that Rotary can thrive in the years ahead.  It reflects the impact Rotary aspires to have on the world and our members.
Rotary is developing a plan for implementing the new strategic plan this year.

Please sponsor Julianna & her Team for World's Greatest Shave 2018

Julianna Neill - Caloundra Rotarian and owner of Pharmacy for Life - is taking part in the World's Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation.  She is being joined by her staff member Michaela Kerr and daughter Stephanie.

Please sponsor her to give Aussie families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need.

You may not know it but blood cancer claims more lives than breast cancer or melanoma.  And today another 35 people will be given the devastating news they have leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or another blood disorder.

Will you help by sponsoring Julianna?

Sponsor Julianna here


Sponsoring Julianna will ensure someone being treated in hospital gets a personal visit from a highly-trained health professional so they get the extra support they need.

ROMAC Trivia Challenge -Thursday 1 March
Last Tuesday's Meeting
Where is President Peter?
Answer: Lost somewhere near Wine Glass Bay, Freycinet Peninsula, East Coast Tassie
James Condon took the chair and welcomed our members to the meeting - for which there were many apologies.  Assistant Governor, Wendy Gilson escaped the rain in Maroochydore to join us.
Past District Governor or to use an acronym, PDG Alan Still OAM proposed the international toast to the Rotary E-Club of World Peace of which our speaker last week, Michelle Lightworker is a member.  For more information about Rotary E-Clubs, click here.  Later in  the meeting, Alan corrected his statement of last week and advised that there were no E-Clubs in Rotary Districts 9550, 9570 & 9600 - although the Rotary EClub of Global Super Heroes District 9600 is a new online Rotary club in our district, looking for future Rotarians who want to serve locally & globally.  Rotary District 9630 has two E-Clubs and D9640 has one.
Trevor Gilliland took three minutes or so to tell us about himself, including being a Rotaractor in Gympie and unwittingly being one of only two men in a large group of ladies in Brisbane.
President Elect or PE Bernie was celebrating the gift of a book from her husband, Doing Good in the World: The Inspiring Story of The Rotary Foundation's First 100 Years; preparation for her next year in office.  She also informed us about President Jimmy Carter, Peace & Rotary.  Read more here.
Our Guest Speaker was Rae Guyder who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bribie Island and is the Rotary District 9600 Chair for InterplastInterplast sends teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals to provide life-changing surgery and medical training in 17 countries across the Asia Pacific region.  Interplast does this in partnership with local organisations, including hospitals, universities and local NGOs. Its mission is to ‘repair bodies and rebuild lives’ and Interplast does this through providing surgical services to those who could not otherwise afford or access these, and by building the capacity of local medical systems through our training and mentoring programs.
Do those Rotary Acronyms puzzle you?
