HAYLEY'S HERALD
 
Thank you everyone who contributed to the YHAF packing night at the Mayberry, Meldrum and Anderson office last Tuesday evening, I believe it was 114 toiletry packs made to be distributed to our local homeless community and also to everyone lending their time to our upcoming book fair.
 
A big thank you to Tina for her insight on how we can be seen in the community from a social media point of view. A few little clicks or comments can definitely broaden our audience.
 
As per a previous email sent out there will be a training day on October 10 from 9.30 – 3.00 (qld time) at the Quality Hotel at Mermaid Beach – I can vouch for the lunch – it’s pretty good! Please let Mary-Ann know if you are interested, I encourage you all to attend if you are able to, the itinerary is below.
 
This week’s speaker is Nicole Schiller who will be speaking to us about Personal Development Breathwork.
 
Cheers,
Hayley

IMPORTANT NEWS
 
 
2. BOOK FAIR -
We are planning to hold the next book fair in October. As we have received another huge number of new boxes of books it would be great if we could do some more sorting before the Book Fair starts.  
We will be having another working bee this Wednesday after the Rotary meeting. (at the Book Fair shop - near Priceline Pharmacy.)
Please let Desiree know if you are able to help. It should only be for a few hours. 
Please bring gloves and face mask with you (for the dust).

LOOPER NOTES
Looper Notes 9th September, 2020
(NOTES FROM 16TH NOT AVAILABLE AT TIME OF WRITING)
 
Jeff started the morning with words of wisdom and Hayley opened the meeting by welcoming guest Karen Thomas. The crowd went wild when Hayley offered to do her joke, however, as the joke was about a shark it kinda fell a bit flat (there’d just been a fatal shark attack). Better luck next time.

Before we enjoyed the usual fabulous fare of Johnny Franco’s, there were updates on various things:
Jeannie gave a Services report and reminded people about the packing for You Have A Friend on 15th and requested donations of goods, particularly disposable masks.
Cherry reminded us that It Takes A Town are facilitating a community “Reset” workshop on 30th Sept and are hoping to get lots of representatives from around town to attend. Cherry and Julie will represent the club.
Cherry also mentioned there’s an opportunity for the club to have a regular presence at the Farmers’ Market, as It Takes A Town are offering spots on their table to community groups. We could use the spot once every 6 weeks if we wanted. 
Hayley said there was a Board meeting yesterday morning.
The club’s book fair is going ahead with Desiree organising. Expect another working bee.
On 4th Nov, Governor Andy will be visiting our club.
My Rotary website technical failures have now been fixed.
Foundation donations are encouraged through the MyRotary website. Please ask if you need help to do this.
Wedgetail trivia night: could possibly be done online. Simone is organising one now (for something else) so we’ll see how that goes.
Kaileen C talked about the poppy project, which is to cover the M’bah bridge with knitted or crocheted poppies or pompoms. She is putting together 60 starter kits to make poppies and taking these around the community including schools, so the project involves many more people. The club will be selling poppies to businesses to raise funds too.
Simone said that the End Polio movie night (“I am Woman” movie, currently available on Netflix) isn’t viable with COVID restrictions for the Regent. However it’s proposed that we have Netflix parties, with no more than 10 people at a time, and everyone paying $10 into the club account.
Judy reported that a working bee (Helen, Mary, Stephanie) put together Fathers Day mugs and delivered them on Friday afternoon to Greenhills and other aged care facilities. They were very well received.
Judy also announced that the 3 Mt St Pats students the club talked to about the Youth Science Forum were all successful!
Julie talked about her experience watching the suicide prevention webinar on Sunday. She registered as a grandparent and said it was so valuable. There were excellent speakers, and the key thing that came across to her was the role of a father and the impact of that relationship on a teenager’s mental health. Hayley concurred that it was really interesting and worth watching (it’s still available). Mary spoke in her role as a nurse and encouraged anyone in the club who was lonely or struggling to seek information advice and support. She can offer confidential advice if needed.

After breakfast, District Govenor nominee, Karen Thomas, from the Burleigh club, told us about herself. She’s trying to get around all the clubs and meet everyone.

Some of the background she talked about...Karen was born in M’bah and grew up in Burringbar. Karen is a registered nurse who did her training at Lismore base hospital. She now has a private practice in diabetes management. She started in Rotary through Rotaract and is currently moving to Kingscliff.  She has been an Assistant Governor for 3 years for the western clubs and is mentoring new clubs this year. She encourages everyone to consider being involved in district level activities and roles. There was a lot more... Karen was an absolute delight!

Kaylene volunteered for a workshop in Tweed sometime about something, Hayley wasn’t sure. It’s actually being organised by an Assistant Governor Bruce instead of district assembly, and is likely to happen in Oct.

Kaileen B won the raffle and fines were dished out left right and centre by Peter, Elizabeth and cross-finers. Elizabeth regaled us with a terrible (and entertaining) story about falling out of her car because of a scary spider!
