Club Trivia Night
We enjoyed a fun trivia night for the last meeting of this Rotary Year. Many thanks to all members and partners for your support this last 12 months in what has been a very different Rotary Year.
I think Darren has been taking time out from his lawn mowing to hone up his trivia skills . Partnering with Joy  he took out the honours at last nights club trivia night. Congratulation Darren, a top effort, but he forgot to share the chocolates. Many thanks to Rob for organising another quiz evening
Our thanks to Michael and Ping for organising a fantastic Chinese Vegetarian Cooking demonstration on Tuesday. Helen  (Sui) delighted the taste buds of those members that attended with a fabulous 4 course meal. Mushrooms have never tasted so good and brussels sprouts have moved up on the list of fabulous foods.

I am deeply saddened to inform everyone of a further tragedy involving Polio volunteer workers in Afghanistan …

Rotary International’s PolioPlus Chair/RI Past Vice Chair Mike McGovern reports that six Polio workers were killed in Afghanistan on Tuesday and a further four injured.

President Holger has sent official condolences on behalf of Rotary International and our Polio Chair in Afghanistan has visited the four injured volunteers in hospital.

Past Vice President Mike said the situation in Afghanistan will become very tenuous in the months ahead.  He said there is an ongoing civil war between the Taliban and Isis/Isil  groups and the government has little control of the situation.

These people are truly unsung heroes and the situation emphasises the extreme importance of our end of year Polio fund raising to ensure the program continues and is completed as soon as possible.
