London to New Zealand by Bicycle

There is always something interesting happening in the Rotary Club of Cleveland.  Last night we went on a journey of self discovery with Jeremy Scott whose challenges with open heart surgery as an infant led to him riding alone around the world from London to New Zealand.  His story is told in:

With stories of encounters with "bad" men in Iran and serendipitous meetings with a family who had shared the same skillful surgeon but with different outcomes, Jeremy entertained us and reminded us that determination and grit will make things happen.

Sarah reports on NYSF

Our student Sarah Linning gave us a spirited description of her two weeks in Canberra at the National Youth Science Forum. As she is planning to work in the health sciences area, this was the area of study that she investigated and experienced there. It was wonderful to hear Sarah's enthusiastic plans for the future as she completes her Year 12 this year at the Queensland Academy of Health Sciences and moves forward next year with renewed focus as a result of her NYSF experience. We can be sure John Simpson will ensure she is also kept abreast of other opportunities in the Rotary world.

Happy New Year!

About 60 members, partners, families, visiting past exchange student Karina & family from Denmark gathered at the Grand View Hotel for our traditional first meeting of the year - the Chicken & Prawn night.  A great night of fellowship, followed by a visit upstairs to the cartoon exhibition - well worth climbing the stairs!!.

Looking forward to a busy time ahead as we have a Bunnings BBQ Saturday, visit the Airport on the 24th, gear up for the Golf Day on March 8th...the Rotary year is half over, and plans well in hand for the remainder of the year. 

Chubby Bubbies and the Redlands Centre for Women

Our last formal meeting for 2018 was full of fun and laughter, information about RYTS and a lovely thank you from Sandy Shuttleworth, President of the Redlands Centre for Women.  Cleveland Rotary recently gave the Centre a donation to help with the amazing work they do in the Redlands, particularly with young women. Sandy went home with the beautiful teddy bears - they were to have been raffled off and members unanimously agreed to donate them to the Centre for their care packs.

Redlands Coast

Honorary Member, Mayor Karen Williams addressed the meeting this evening, updating us on the Redlands Coast initiative and it's expected benefits for the community, particularly in relation to tourism. Two magnificent videos illustrated for  members the beauty of the Redlands Coast region and Stradbroke Island in particular. Whilst quite a few of us had been sceptical about the new branding, the videos certainly reinforced the relevance of looking at our region and its coastal attributes, rather than just our city and the urban development.

Business Breakfast - From little things big things grow

What an inspirational morning with three business leaders explaining how they have been there done that. Photographed above are Moderator & Rotarian Tim Davis, with Scott Geiszler - Founder of Pizza Capers, Tanya Winter - Founder of Studio Pilates, Andrew McMaster - Founder & CEO of CV Services, and MC, PP Ron Loney. So much to learn from these three, who like many in the room started with an idea and built amazing businesses by sheer hard work, learning from others, listening to experience, having the courage to follow their dreams, build their teams - and more hard work.

Remembering Ernie Goleby

Many of us will remember Ernie as the quiet Rotarian. He quietly expressed his views, he quietly supported projects close to his heart and at times he quietly supported programmes financially without making a fuss. Yet, he was a very engaged and well respected Redlander.

Wet weather certainly did not dampen the spirits of those who attended the International Fiesta Night at Burbank last night, at the home of Judy's daughter.  Extremely comfortable surroundings, magnificent food, excellent wine and great company.

Fun and entertainment, a night to remember.  Many thanks to Judy for organising and hosting a delightful evening, and to her family for their hospitatlity (particularly Isabella for the delicious paella).

RIP Merv Genrich OAM PHF

It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Past President Merv Genrich (2005/2006), a former Shire Chairman and lifelong supporter of many community organisations in the Redlands. Merv came to Rotary quite late in his community life — having given so much in his previous roles in local government, a community leader and respected citizen — he found the Rotary Family one he could assimilate with easily & still provide some meaningful input.

That’s why Rotary members are devoted to fighting and preventing diseases.

Rotary Meeting - "Dementia - reducing the risk and living with it"

Date: Tuesday Feb 26, 2019, 6:00 pm

We all get old and bits wear out.  When it is our brain that looses its capacity to function we become frustrated with ourselves and sometimes difficult to live with.  Join us tonight to hear from Ann Donaghy and Michelle Schlitter of Centacare talk about what it means to be dementia aware - how to reduce the risk of dementia, how to live with it while maintaining dignity and a sense of worth, how to live with a person who has dementia

Rotary Meeting - 'Your bits can help someone else'

Date: Tuesday Mar 5, 2019, 6:00 pm

Did you know more than 1,400 people are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant, yet only one in three Australians is a donor?

Thanks to the generosity of deceased organ donors and their families, thousands of Australians are given a second chance at life.

Even though the majority of us believe it’s important to register as an organ donor, only one in three of us actually do so.  Most families agree to a donation if the deceased was a registered organ donor, while only half agree if the deceased was not registered.

Join us tonight to hear how you can become an organ donor and save a life through your decision.
