Fellow Rotarians and Friends 
Last Friday saw us gather at the Kokoda Wall to celebrate the Centenary of Rotary.  It was an honour to receive, albeit temporarily, the Centenary Baton.  It was an even greater honour to receive it from Max Kirwan OAM, a World War II 39 Battalion (B) Veteran, former President of Preston Rotary, a Paul Harris Fellow and a jolly decent man.  Max is one of seven remaining 39B from World War II and will be honoured on Anzac Day in Brisbane. 
Thank you to the members of BBRC who attended the event at Cascade Gardens.  Whilst it didn’t go quite as scheduled, it was great that we were there to mark a special occasion, to break bread with other Cluster 7 Rotarians and friends.  It was disappointing that the media stood us up, however in the spirit of service above self, the comradery of the gathering was very special. 
Two from three isn’t bad, the Council have advised that the club missed out on the final grant proposal for five scooters.  Thanks, Neil, for applying, the reasons were simply that a lot of organisations applied there just wasn’t enough to go around. Also, I suspect as we are frequent recipients from them, it was someone else’s turn.  However, we have been successful in over $40k this year, not to be sneezed at.  
The visit to the Police District Tasking and Coordination Centre (DTACC) is set for this Tuesday night.  Meet at 6pm, Clock Hotel for a meal from the Bistro.  We are due to the DTACC around 7pm, former GSE team member, senior sergeant Ben Nielsen will be our host for the evening. For those wanting to park, the Cypress Avenue carpark is probably the best , it’s $1.50 per hour until 7pm.  The Hotel and DTACC are within 100 metres of each other. 
We are also sizzling next weekend at Bunnings, thanks to those who have volunteered.  The weather outlook is fine so far, hopefully it stays that way. 
Until next week. 
Yours in Rotary.

Rotary Information Weekly
World Immunization Week is 24-30 April
Join with Rotary to promote the power of vaccines. 

During World Immunization Week, 24-30 April, join with Rotary to combat vaccine hesitancy and misinformation by spreading the facts about why #VaccinesWork.

With decades of experience fighting polio, Rotary plays a key role in informing people about the power and effectiveness of vaccines. As COVID-19 vaccines become more available, Rotary members are using our experience in fighting polio to help communities with their vaccination education and organization efforts. And today, because we and our partners have worked so hard, wild poliovirus remains endemic in only two countries: Afghanistan and Pakistan. But to eradicate it there and to prevent a resurgence in other parts of the world, we must continue to build trust in vaccines and raise funds for polio eradication, including vaccine delivery.

This year, you can take action for World Immunization Week in three easy ways:  
  1. Download and share our new two-minute video, “Rotary Inspires Leaders in Global Health,” and show it to your clubs. In it, global health leaders like U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Co-Chair Bill Gates, UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta H. Fore, and World Health Organization Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus talk about what Rotary has achieved in the fight to end polio. 
  2. Post graphics and other content from Rotary’s World Immunization Week Toolkit on social media with the hashtags #EndPolio and #VaccinesWork.  
  3. Donate to Rotary’s PolioPlus Fund to help us and our partners deliver polio vaccines to vulnerable children. Your contribution will be tripled, thanks to the Gates Foundation.
This month, Rotary marks 100 years of service in Australia and New Zealand. 
One great way for Zone 8 Rotarians to celebrate is by becoming a ‘Centenary Centurion’!

While The Rotary Foundation is the beneficiary of the Centurion program, it is actually a program that was created by the districts of Australia and New Zealand.  What’s unique is that the pledge of $100 or more is expressed in local currency terms – AUD or NZD.  
To make a donation to either the Annual Fund or PolioPlus please contact either of our Joint Foundation Directors, Nayer or Nasser Kaviani.
Breakfast at Surfers Sunrise Shed Wednesday 14 April,
Baton Relay function at Cascade Gardens Friday 16 April &
Pentecost Project Meeting and Painting Saturday 17 April

Scribe: Neil Jones
Our normal club meeting was suspended this week with members having the opportunity to join other Rotarians from our Cluster at the above events.
Surfers Sunrise hosted a breakfast function at its Arundel Shed Wednesday morning with our club represented by John Curr, Cec McPaul, John Monks, Rock O'Keefe, Uwe Seifert, Graham Sivyer and Peter & Roslyn Tomlinson. Updates were provided on Surfers Sunrise Wheelchair Project and the Pentecost Island Project and those in attendance had the opportunity to view firsthand progress on the Mauna Hospital building.
Friday saw Cluster 7 hosting the Centenary Baton Relay with activities throughout the day culminating with Broadbeach receiving the baton at the Rotary Kokoda Memorial Wall in Cascade Gardens before passing it on to Assistant Governor Cluster 5 - David Bisiker.
Twelve Broadbeach Rotarians were on hand to see President Les receive the baton from Broadwater Southport President, Howard Manning via Max Kirwan OAM, a World War II 39th Battalion Veteran and former President of Preston Rotary Club in Victoria.
We provided a sausage sizzle for those present and although modestS in number it was a very enjoyable evening sharing time with Rotary Friends from across our Cluster.
Saturday morning saw Graham Sivyer & Neil Jones back at the Arundel Shed for a Pentecost Island Project Committee meeting where we later joined the Saturday morning volunteers for morning tea including Uwe Seifert who was busily painting timber for the hospital building.
All in all a very active week.
