The winner of this year’s Police Officer of the year was Senior Constable Kurt Foessel.
Kurt has run the Elanora Police Beat for many years.  This year was his eighth nomination in a row, so clearly his dedication continues year after year.

Sister club relationships are a great way in which Rotarians can express international goodwill as part of our common Rotary goals.  At Broadbeach, we share in a 3 way relationship with the  Rotary Club of Kasaoka Japan and the Rotary Club of Tauranga New Zealand.  At our meeting on the 8th July, we were delighted that Kenji Tsuda was able to join us for our regular meeting.  Kenji was making yet another visit to participate in the Gold Coast Marathon that was held a few days prior to that.  Kenji presented President John Monks with a special gift from the members of Kasaoka.  We send our best regards to all of our friends in Kasaoka and Tauranga.

Almost 70 members, partners & friends of the Rotary Club of Broadbeach experienced great fellowship as Past President Neil passed on the baton to new President for 2014-2015 - John Monks.

Thanks were expressed to Neil for his stewardship of another successful year at our club and that is set to continue with all present looking forward to to providing ongoing assistance for operations under the guidance of John.

When it became apparent that the existing infastructure at the Southport pools was to be demolished to make way for the new facilities for the Commonwealth games, the following people all made major efforts to ensure that some it could be re-used within our local community for ongoing service work of Rotary on the Gold Coast under the auspices of The Rotary Club of Broadbeach.

In this picture we have John Monks, our Club project manager & President Elect for 2014-2015 presenting our Certificate of Appreciation to GCCC Manager of Property Services Brendan Madden for the help and guidance he was able to provide to ensure that the project was successfully completed.  Significant encouragement was also provided by Cr. Dawn Crichlow (Division 6)   and Cr. Paul Taylor (Division 10) covering our Broadbeach area.

 

 

 

 

 
 

Congratulations to John Monks and all the other club members who have played a role in the construction of The Shed. The club thanks you for your untiring efforts that are now witnessed in the finished product.

It was fitting that Cr Dawn Crichlow OAM performed the official opening and we thank Cr Dawn and Cr Paul for their generous financial support of this project that would not have been otherwise possible. Certificates of Appreciation were also presented to Cr Dawn and Cr Paul Taylor for their contribution and support of Broadbeach Rotary.

Tues Nov. 5th 2103 represented a significant date in the history of the Rotary Club of Broadbeach - we held a fellowship meeting at our new club facility in Ashmore.

Gold Coast Health's five year program to expand existing services and complete a $1.76 Billion health facility is now drawing to a close. After 5 years of construction and many more in the planning, the Gold Coast will now have a world class tertiary hospital. Tony Matheson, Community Engagement Officer and Dale Tatterson, Volunteer Coordinator, were at our meeting on Tuesday 27th Aug and gave us a snap shot of the new Gold Coast University Hospital. They also gave us an insight into in-service volunteering and the Community Advisory Group where community members can get involved.

A working bee of 14 members were busy at a variety of jobs on Sat. 29th. June as the construction of the 
two most important internal rooms took place.

Another milestone was achieved on Fri 7th June when lockup stage was reached.
Congratulations to our project manager John Monks for his continued efforts to keep things moving ahead.
Future steps include mounting large internal lights, external security lights and internal fans that were saved from the dismantled Southport pools shed.   After that we will be getting the power connected.  It will soon be time for some working bees to do some landscaping, putting up a permanent fence, retaining walls etc.

ImageMembers of the club enjoyed a great fun night when our guest speaker was "Aussie Joe" Bugner.

Joe had us enthralled as he filled us in on his famous 15 rounders with Mohammed Ali in Las Vegas & Kuala Lumpur and much, much more.
The former Commonwealth & International Heavyweight champion cut a fine figure of fun, good health & vitality in a night that will long be remembered by those of us present.

ImageAn active group of members of our club are currently researching the opportunity of helping victims of land mine accidents in Laos.  Indications are that for less than au$75, we can purchase cheap but effective locally made prosthetic limbs that will dramatically improve the life of one of those unfortunate enough to have suffered such a horrendous mishap whilst going about a normal daily activity.

Ms Prue Plummer - Age 25, PHD Cancer Researcher

Nominated by Dr Alan Munn,

Prue completed high school at Robina High where she was the president of the Leo Club, which is a Lions Club youth group.

She studied for a science degree at Griffith University and then obtained an honours degree.

Prue was chosen to do a PHD under Professor Albert Mellick on research in the cause of cancer. Her studies focused on how cancers grow and spread to other parts of the body and how to restrict the growth of blood vessels that nourish the growth of tumours. Prue has identified the DNA markers of the EPC cells in blood vessels. This discovery allows for research into methods to restrict their growth. This may be a major breakthrough.
