Vale : Lyn Roberts
It is with great regret and deep sadness that we record the loss on Thursday morning of our dearest friend and fellow member, Lynne (Lyn) Roberts.
Our deepest sympathy is extended to Lex and her wonderful family.
Lyn's Life Celebration was held on Tuesday 20 November with many members present.
Lyn became a Rotarian on 1 March 1988 when he joined the Rotary Club of Bribie Island.  He served that club as President 18 March 1988 to 30 June 1989, and as Secretary for 1990-91.
He joined the Rotary Club of Caloundra on 1 November 1993 and was Community Services  Director in 1995-96. 
The major fundraising that year was the Charity Golf Day.  About $6,000 was donated to the Palliative Care unit of the Caloundra Hospital.  Lyn inherited the task of receiving the golf cards of players on the golf day.  After analysis he would announce the various  winners.  Because he did this job so well, he retained that role for many years.
Lyn was a member of the club's first team to work in the Solomon Islands in 2005.  He worked on improvements to the outpatients department of the Gizo hospital. 
He was a multiple Paul Harris Fellow, having been recognised firstly in 1993 and later with a sapphire pin.
Lyn pictured with Lexley, President Bernie, and daughter Jacqui at our meeting on 30 October when Lyn's long membership in Rotary was recognised with a certificate and the bestowing of an annual Scholarship for the STEMM program founded by Jacqui.  The Scholarship will be presented to the STEMM student who has achieved well and will help to further her studies. 
A few words from President Bernie
On Tuesday 20 November, the family, friends, the Rotary Club of Caloundra and the Community farewelled one of our longstanding members Lyn Roberts PHF.  For 25years he has done his bit for the Caloundra Community.  He was a wonderful family man, great friend and mentor to many.  We will miss his dry humour and matter of fact demeanour.
During his time with Caloundra he was very involved with the Golf days and he made sure there was no cheating, he was a stickler for reporting the score sheets in a proper manner.
His Celebration of Life at Gregson & Weight Caloundra was a fitting send-off to his life.  Farewell Lynne we will miss you.  Lexley, Michael, Suellen, Jacqui and your families, please accept our deepest condolences.
Election of Officers for 2019-20
At our AGM on 4 December, an important part of the agenda is the Election of Officers for next year, under President 2019-20 Chris Rees.
The officers to be elected are set out below.
Please consider which position you would like to volunteer for and contact Chris, Bernie or Sue as soon as possible.
Our last meeting
Our meeting on 20 November began with a minute's silence to honour our late member, Lyn Roberts.
Ian Belcher chaired proceedings and welcomed guest speaker Tony, Graeme Bowden & Ian Holden.  Ian is a semi retired bookkeeper with computer/internet skills.  He and his wife recently settled in Pelican Waters.  Ian currently works two days a week on-line for a Veterinary Clinic in Albury/Wodonga where he has been employed for 10 years.
We were then treated to a very quick but outstanding presentation by Ana featuring her life, family, vocation and interests.
Renew your Centurion membership, or join up
Just a reminder to all members to renew their Centurion membership, or become a new member - use the attached form.
As you may know, the Centurion program is the Australian way for Rotarians to make personal contributions to the Foundation – which is, of course, our charity.  Don’t forget that the $100 Centurion contributions accumulate towards a personal Paul Harris Fellowship and 50% eventually (three years' time) reappears to support club and District activities via District Designated Funds.
Mark in Queenstown
Mark (with his fellow members of IMFR - International Marathon Fellowship of Rotarians) participated in the Queenstown marathon yesterday.  He said there was beautiful weather and an unbelievable scenic course around the lake.
Afterwards, the IMFR AGM and awards dinner had lots of local Rotary participation - even the DG from Dunedin welcomed them.
Next year's run is in Iceland as the incoming president is from Scandinavia.
