Club Activities to Diary
Speaker -  17 July 2019
This weeks speaker is Phil Matheson, President Grant's brother.  Phil will share his very personal story of losing his wife to breast cancer and how 'Out of the Dark Mushrooms' has gone from a one man band with family members putting in the added graft, to producing over a tonne of mushrooms each week. The business supplies about 60% of that to top restaurants such a Cocoro, Sid@the French Cafe and Amano as well as  supplying My Food Bag and supermarkets.

Stories Needed

It is becoming increasing hard to fill the bulletin as we are not getting any stories sharing the great work you are doing out there in the community. We could REALLY do with your help or sadly the quality of the bulletin will drop.
Peace Fellowships

Each year, Rotary awards up to 100 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of our peace centres.

Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centres program develops the fellows into experienced and effective catalysts for peace. The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.

Interplast Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical Programme
Funded by District 99209, an Interplast team departed on 15 May 2019 and concluded on 23rd May 2019. It comprised of two surgeons, two anaesthetists, two nurses and one physiotherapist. A total of 64 patients were consulted, 41 were selected for surgery, and 41 procedures were performed.
Please check your cupboards for any spare knitting wool that you would be happy to give so Lois McKay and her team can knit garments for needy babies and children.  We would like 3 and 4 Ply, and double knitting wool (8 ply).  Pure wool and acrylic yarns and all colours are useful, even small amounts as these can be incorporated into booties, hats etc.
Please bring them to our meetings and give to Donna.
