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.

Syd's son Brian advised our members:

Sadly I inform you that Dad passed peacefully away at 1:45 Wednesday 3rd April - (at the grand age of 99 years).
Dad had been declining in health over the last few months but was in no pain. His mind however was alert as ever and he could still deliver a good quip or joke.

Once he stopped eating the decline was rapid.

The funeral service has been set for Wednesday 10th April at 10:00am.
To be held at Allambe Memorial Gardens, Somerville Chapel, Nerang Broadbeach Road, Nerang. Queensland.

Over the years and his travels Dad accumulated many good friends. I know he would want me to pass onto you his regards and wishes for a happy and healthy life.

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.
