News Updates
Today was a very special day for Catherine as she received her new Paul Harris Pin. Linda had presented it at Charter Night but broke the pin as she took it out of the box. With a new opportunity to thank Catherine for attaining her PHF+8 we are reminded of the outstanding work the Rotary Foundation contributes to helping those in a less fortunate position at home and abroad. Thank you Catherine for you contributions, somewhere in the world someone is better off because of you.
We had a reminder today about the Rotary Youth Exchange students we used to accommodate in days gone by. Adra took part in a Rotary Youth Exchange program way back in 1984 and spoke passionately of the experience. Adra said it was a life changing experience for her, coming from a small town in British Columbia to a city with a different language, different culture and many other things she had to adjust too.
The program is still available for clubs to participate. The last excitement we had was the GSE team from New Zealand. Maybe a revisit to what we do is in order.... Just saying.
Bill Jones came to visit us today as our speaker, his talk and photo's were all about Cape Brenton and the Celtic Colours. The festival takes place for nine days in the month of October. There is far too much to write about the festival, so I have added a link to the 2018 event. We had a couple of Newfies in the audience, so for them it was a trip home down memory lane. 
Here is the LINK.
We had a well known guest visit our Rotary Club by the name of Dr. John Bryjolfson. John gave us an update on the latest changes in health care, subjects covered were the use of low doze aspirin which has a on again off again reputation. John pointed out the latest findings were on again, this time with a twist, it was found to reduce the likelihood of bowel cancer. John has a pleasant way of explaining things and his talk resulted in a lot of questions from the audience. Unfortunately we ran out of time, but he did promise to return again and talk about some of the issues facing women in the changing world of health care. Thank you John, for your time and energy in your presentation.
Schedule for the months of January and February.
January 17 and 31.
February 7, 21 and 28.
February 14 is cancelled for Valentines Day. (Newlands)
Time for all meetings is 12:15 to 1:15 pm.
District Governor Lindagene worked hard when she came to our club on her official visit. First, the computer system failed to function so her presentation was verbal only. Then came presentations to Mike Brown and Travis Strain for work well done in supporting the club the way they do. To be followed by the induction of a new member, and a board of directors meeting at the close of the meeting. Who said the job DG was easy, if you think so put your name in for DG21/22. Thank you Lindagene for all that you do. 
A new member you say... yes, Ashley Harrison was sponsored by John Campbell.
Welcome to the family Ashley.
