President Peter's Musings
Good morning everyone!
A special welcome to:
  • Our two Guest Speakers, Lilly and Hailey, who have both completed the RYPEN (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment) Weekend and are here to share their stories.
  • Phil, the Salvation Army's representative for Caloundra, introduced by James
  • Jan Conti, who is down from the tropics to make sure Gerry behaves himself
We were met at the door by Chris who extended a warm welcome to all.
On the ring of the Seargent, Deb Taylor's bell, the ever capable, cool, calm Chairperson, Anne Rattle declared our meeting open.
Alan Still OAM is still following devastation around the world for the International Toast.  This time stopping in Puerto Rico D7000, in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.  Once again our hearts go out to those caught up in the natural disaster and we pray that Rotary Clubs worldwide are able to contribute to the recovery as needed.

DIK Newsletter
October is Basic Education and Literacy month
Globally, 836 million people still live in extreme poverty today.  About one in five persons in developing regions lives on less than $1.65 per day.  Global unemployment has increased from 170 million in 2007 to nearly 202 million in 2012, of which about 75 million are young women and men.
By supporting projects that focus on generating income and creating productive employment opportunities, we can reduce poverty.  Providing income security and empowering women, people with disabilities, youth, and the extremely poor is essential to economic and community development.
Rotarians worldwide are committed to reducing poverty through projects that provide people with equipment, vocational trainings, and work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.
