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.

Two PHF Sapphires

A Paul Harris Fellow is often given to a Rotarian or member of the community in recognition of work done in the community - local or international. Points towards a PHF also come from regular donations to The Rotary Foundation that accumulate to a total of $1,000 US. Last night President Robert presented John Simpson with his PHF with 2 Sapphires. Vice President Ian Neil then presented Pres. Robert with his PHF with 5 Sapphires.  Each sapphire equates to another $1,000 US accumulated. Congratulations to both John and Robert for their many years of work in Rotary and generosity to TRF work in the world.

RAM - Rotarians Against Malaria

Malaria is one of the diseases that we can work towards eradicating in the world, by supporting RAM - Rotarians Against Malaria.  PDG Craig Bowen OAM has worked tirelessly over many years to support this cause, and spoke eloquently last night to raise awareness amongst our members.

Craig also spoke about the world's first LBGTIQ Rotoract Club, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Woolloongabba - Craig was instrumental in forming this club.

Thanks also to Tony Ooi in Member's Corner - part two of his varied and interesting business life!

Craig Tomson, Redland City Bulletin

Lots of questions and comments from the floor for new editor of the Redland City Bulletin, Craig Tomson. Craig is not a newcomer to the Redlands, having grown up in Capalaba.  Watch the pages of the paper as he progresses his plans for greater local community focus in the news stories.

We also welcomed Don Seccombe, Redland Foundation, to acknowledge the donation of $2,000.00 by the Rotary Club of Cleveland to the Foundation. We have worked closely with the Foundation for many years in community work, including raising funds for Domestic Violence (Diner en Rouge) and Homelessness.

In all the event raised over $8,500.00 - so well done to all club members supporting this event. (Any photos please? I was away.)

Greetings from Cambodia

Darrel Steer spoke to us a few weeks ago, about the work he is doing in Cambodia, providing toilets for villagers. Albert has shared the following email and video. 

There was a touching moment last Friday.  We had finished the installation of a toilet and after the handover, where one of the children showed us how well she could wash her hands, her mother became so emotional with gratitude.  Her eyes moistened and she struggled with her words ‘Okun ’ - thank you.
