Allan Stevens

The Campfire Project

Allan told us of the need he was responding to, which was, firstly that most suicides are younger men, and secondly, that men in this day and age found it difficult to define their role in society and the home.  One of the ways to deal with this was by telling ones own story and listening to others in a non judgmental situation.  Inspired by the understanding and practice  of Aboriginal Lore, Allan has established a place where men (and increasingly women,) can go, both face to face and online, to talk about their experience, hopes and fears without a resolution being mandated. #Wetogether will find the project and the parameters.
A thought provoking presentation
 
 
 
 

Guest Speaker -Dr Gabriel Akra                                                                                                                       
Subject “Giving back to a generous country;  my journey in AustraliaDr Gabriel gave us a truly inspirational address beginning with his childhood dream to serve people , inspired by his vision and finally the fulfilment of his hopes through medical work of a unique nature in Australia.

WESTPAC RESCUE HELICOPTER SERVICEIt is always a joy to listen to someone who loves their job and the organisation for whom they work. Shannon Stanton, who more than adequately fulfils these criteria , spoke to us about the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. The first thing we learnt was that Westpac does not own and operate this service , but is a major donor.  

With thanks to our dedicated members, in particular Mary Crammond and David Boyd, we have received our second Shipment of Shelterbags from South Africa, and have been able to distribute them to agencies involved with the Homeless to provide a shelter from the elements when sleeping rough.  We hope to have even more to distribute for next winter 2022, following fundraising this year.  Thank you to everyone who sponsored and donated.  With other Rotary Clubs coming on board to order their own consignment, we hope to be able to furnish every person in need on the Central Coast.
 
 
Shelterbag committee member David Boyd, has been busy delivering/distributing Shelterbags for the Homeless throughout the Central Coast, to the Hunter and in Sydney. So often when we engage with an Outreach Agency, they advise of another agency needing Shelterbags for their Homeless clients. There are more and more homeless people presenting to outreach agencies.

Jenny Taffee spoke eloquently about the inspirational Camp Breakaway in San Remo. This purpose built camp provides accommodation and programmes for all disabilities, individuals and institutions. It also provides for able bodied functions such as weddings, in its grounds and halls. 
Australia Day 2022
 
A Terrigal, Erina and Kincumber event, organized by Kincumber and joint committee, held at Broadwater Park, Kincumber.
A truly inclusive event with a local aboriginal group, Girri Girra, starting the event with a smoking ceremony which, after the local elders had taken part,  everyone was invited to join.  Gourmet sausages and rolls were cooked by Rotarians from all three clubs, and local music students gently sang to enhance the reflective nature of the day.  An exhibition of world campaign scenarios was a great attraction.  Lots of parents and children joined in as well as members of the public from all three areas of our Central Coast.  Thank you to everyone who helped or attended to make it a really good event.
 
       
             
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
         A Day in the Life of Lucy      

We were delighted to have a warm , humane and enthusiastic address-more of a chat really-from Lucy Wicks , the member for Robertson. Lucy joined us on zoom after a very busy day chairing two Parliamentary Committees one into the Auditor General Act and the other focusing on online abuse on social media. In sharing her day with us...
Kevin O'Donnell gave a fascinating talk on the history of Justices of the Peace, from their origins in the UK to the way they play their part in our society in Australia...see more detail below...
DEMENTIA EXPLAINED
Our guest speaker PP Bobby Redman delivered a wonderfully brave and courageous presentation on the topic of dementia. This is an area that we become more conscious of as we gracefully mature. Bobby used her own experiences to explain how dementia had effected her and how she is dealing with it. It was most impressive to hear how , using her professional skill as a former Psychologist.  See more below..

A DISTRICT GOVERNOR VISIT WITH A DIFFERENCE
 
In days long since passed some older Rotarians will recall that the DG Visit was not always looked forward to with overwhelming enthusiasm by every member.
However in present times there has emerged “the very model of a modern District Governor “(with apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan) of which Lindsay May ( and his charming wife Tania ) is an excellent example. Lindsay came to us via zoom as a business man off distinction , an exceptional sportsman of the sailing variety and a warm and engaging leader.
 
The first 400 shelterbags have now been imported from South Africa and been distributed to agencies involved with helping the homeless and rough sleepers.  We are on track to raise enough money by November to order 750 more.  If you would like to be involved with this please contact our Community Director Mary Crammond..     For tax deductibility

Thank you so much Sarah for your support and the support of Mingara Club.

                                             
The Rotary Clubs of the Central Coast marked the 100 years of Rotary in Australia last week with the presentation of a plaque at the Mount Penang Gardens.
 
We were pleased to have a number of dignitaries at the event with Adam Crouch MP, our District Governor David Clark and President of Gosford City Rotary David Bacon as guest speakers. We were also honoured to have Liesl Tesch MP and many other Rotarians attend the event.
 
We would like to acknowledge the great deal of work performed by President Max Pittolo of Rotary Club of Kariong Somersby, in making the event such a success.

 
Last year, our bush care group participated in planting trees and native grasses in our designated regeneration area. The plants have been supplied through the Bendigo Bank’s green fleet program which funds the provision of native trees and shrubs across Australia, improving water quality, reducing soil segregation and providing essential habitat for native wildlife.  Some of these seem to have survived covid neglect, rain and more rain! We hope to be back soon. clearing the site and planting more.

     
We are now waiting for  the rain to stop, when we will be back out there, planting and weeding!
