President Glenda’s Notes-29th August 2016

Wednesday, 31 Aug 2016

Hello Rotarians,
Thursday evening I had the pleasure of presenting  Diana Butler with a cheque  for $1000 to assist with Care for Africa  Breakfast Program . This program will assist with given children a healthy  start to the day. Many studies have found that children who eat breakfast before school have better concentration  and are twice as likely to preform in the class room.
 We also welcomed visiting Rotarian Howard Bridgman from the Rotary club of Newcastle Enterprise. Rotarian  Howard will be visiting Launceston regularly as his daughter completes her studies.
 As a club we were engaged with our  guest speaker Danielle Blewett from St Giles.
 Danielle  spoke to us about the needs and desires of St Giles. The support and care they give to their clients is amazing. Danielle also educated us on what NDIS is about and many rotarians had a few question for Daniellle at the end of her presentation.
 Danielle also mentioned Balfour Burn which is being held on 9th October, perhaps we could get a team together to challenge this hill and raise the profile of St Giles and our club.
 I would like also to say it was a pleasure  to see Geoff Lean attend our meeting and thak you Ian Smith for keeping in contact with Geoff.

 Quote of the week:
A good deed is never lost,  he who sows courtesy  reaps friendship,  and he who plants kindness  gathers love.
 -Saint Basil the Great
Thank you.
 President Glenda Iles
