STAR Community Services

What a delight last night to welcome back Catherine Williams, who gave us a very informative update on STAR Community Services. Their work has expanded way beyond transport, and there are possibly services that could assist some of us, plus ways in which we can assist them in the future. Visit www.starcommunityservices.org.au for full details of what services they offer today.

Welcome Steve Bravey

Pres. Robert inducted Steve into the Mighty Club last night. Steve is a very busy plumber, and has been visiting us for a while. Welcome Steve, we all look forward to working with you on Rotary projects.

From Cleveland to the Human Rights World

It is not often that a Rotarian gets to introduce their own daughter as a world expert on anything - but that was my pleasure last night. Claire Mahon spoke to us last night about her amazing career since she left Cleveland, studied at ANU, worked in corporate law in Melbourne, and then headed to Geneva as an Intern with Amnesty International. This is best described in her own words, taken from her website www.clairemahon.com 

Hi, I’m Claire. I’m one of those people who grew up wanting to change the world. And I’m doing it - I’m a human rights advocate and international law specialist. I work with courageous individuals and communities.

I have two decades of experience working globally, in international organisations such as the United Nations and Amnesty International, consulting and advising world leaders, and teaching and training graduates and professionals.

I also coach & mentor fellow change-makers, advocates, humanitarians, and global leaders in global affairs, human rights, international law, aid and development.

DV Safe Phone

Your old phone could save a life! 

Ashton Wood, founder of DV Safe Phone joined us via Zoom last night. His story of how he came to develop this project, saving old mobile phones and donating them to organisations for the use of victims of domestic violence is one we should all read, listen to and act upon. All of us have old phones lying around - check out DV Safe Phone and read about the excellent work being done here on the Sunshine Coast.

Birthing kits for PNG

A productive Sunday afternoon organised by the International Committee at Ishbel’s putting together almost 100 birthing kits bound for Papua New Guinea.

These basic kits consist of a sheet of plastic, a cloth, a small sheet, scalpel and string (for tying off the umbilical cord), swabs, gloves and soap. Such basic equipment can save the lives of birthing mothers and their babies by reducing cases of infection.  A great example of a project undertaken by the club’s International Committee and helpers to help address Maternal & Child Health- one of Rotary’s seven areas of focus.

Thank you to all involved for a very worthwhile project!

ESRAG coming to the Redlands

Colin Scobie from Redcliffe Sunrise Rotary Club and Mark Mitchell from the Rotary Club of New Farm visited us again this week, to talk about the recent developments with ESRAG in the Redcliffe area. In the course  of the evening, Colin advised that they would be here in the Redlands, at the Coochie Mudlo Mangrove Festival on Saturday July 16th. Will we be there? This is a great opportunity for the club to make it's presence felt on Coochie, support ESRAG and promote our own Sustainability projects. Over to you Sustainability committee!  Neil, Colin and Barry were deep in discussion following the meeting.

60th Anniversary Celebrations

Congratulations to all involved in making our 60th birthday celebrations such an excellent event - despite the inclement weather. To have Elizabeth Crowther, wife of Dr Parker Bottomley, our Charter President, join us and cut the cake was a wonderful bonus. Thanks to DG Wendy for stepping in to bring Elizabeth at the last minute. Yes, Covid and floods kept some guests away, but the Mighty Club stepped up and made sure that the event continued. Thanks and congratulations to Dr Lyn Bishop OAM, our guest speaker and latest Paul Harris Fellow. Lyn has challenged us to look to how we can assist the youth of Z generation, in order to continue our work in the community. To continue and grow, serve our community, we need new people to step up into the leadership team. P/PE Robert needs your support, please act now for the future.

Batteries - collecting, storing, recycling

Our Sustainability Team are working hard and achieving a lot. Over the weekend, some of the team packed and stored 5 pallets of lead acid batteries, placing them in storage ready for shipment in the near future. On Monday 9th May, some of our team with 2 trailers will be parked at the Waterloo Street entrance to Cleveland and District State High School grounds from 7.30am to approx. 9.00am, to collect batteries from parents in a pre-arranged co-operative project with the high school.  Many thanks to Albert for providing the storage facility for this project.
