The Addictive World - Reaching out to help families
Rotarian Geoff Gray welcomed Kym Haynes and Georgia Phillips of The Addictive World back to Cleveland Rotary, to update us on their rapidly expanding program, helping people and their families with the results of a member becoming addicted to various substances and habits - alcohol, drugs, gambling, technology, sugar.......
In the 18 months since we first met them, they have grown their service and really need assistance to take it to the next level. Check it out on Facebook, see what they are doing, the clinics they run, the counselling services available.
Steve Baxter speaks at our Mid-year Business Breakfast
"Work hard and luck will come your way!" "Don't listen to muppets!" Just two of the memorable quotes from the inspirational talk by Steve Baxter this morning at our sold out event. Steve, well known TV show Shark Tank judge, investor and entrepreneur, particularly in the tech industry, is now Queensland's Chief Entrepreneur. 130 local business people and senior school students ate a fantastic breakfast provided by the RSL as they listened to words of wisdom and inspiration. Thanks to the NAB for their sponsorship of this event, and to Redlands Kayak Tours for the Lucky Door prize.
RYLA and Australian Industry Trade College
Another great night on Tuesday with the focus on Youth. This time a presentation by Arnold Harry about the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) Program, and Teacher Damian, with Liam and Sam from AITC in Cleveland about their great program for apprentices.
Youth Exchange in focus
Last night we were entertained by Sicilia Hammer from Sweden and Roman Milly from Slovakia, telling us about their experiences on Safari in Australia, and the lasting memories they will be taking home with them when they return to their homes in July. Also, we were delighted to welcome our President Nominee for the 2019-2020 year, Luis Caneiro, in what I believe to be Rotary history. Almost 30 years ago, as a young 17 year old, Luis came to Cleveland as an Exchange student from his home in Brazil. He returned with his family about 3 years ago to visit his host family, the Benfers. Luis & Luciana and their children Gabriel and Beatrice have now settled in Cleveland, and Luis is stepping up to lead our club in the future. Luis is here with Sicilia and Roman at last night's meeting.
