Our Last Meeting
Thank you to Alan who chaired the meeting.
President Bernie welcomed visitors: Ross Waugh was visiting from the Rotary Club of North Sydney which is celebrating 90 years this year; Charmaine Wheatley who is a member of the Rotary  E-Club of South Africa One who helped organise the Ocean Crusaders Paddle for Polio at Currimundi Lake.  Thanks to Rob, Judy, Anna, Graham and Deb for supporting Charmaine at this event. 
Bernie said there were about 11 visitors at Opal to see Norm and he was thrilled to see everyone.  She encouraged members to join the roster to sell Melbourne Cup raffle tickets and also to come along to the Melbourne Cup lunch next week.  There is no breakfast next week due to the lunch.

People will naturally say, ‘Well, it seems to be basically gone, so let’s move on to other things,’ but the fact is, it isn’t gone, and if we move on and don’t complete the job, we set ourselves up for having the disease come right back.

Foundation Trustee Chair's November message
Every year we celebrate November as Rotary Foundation Month. How fortunate we are to have a world-class Foundation that allows us to do so much good in the world. We should all take pride in the fact that something good happens every second of every day because of Rotarians and our Rotary Foundation.
