Raby Bay Triathlon March 4th 2018
Terrific to see our new Year 7 Interact Club members doing their first Sausage Sizzle at the Triathlon this morning - here with Teacher Nathan Powell and Pres. Ian Neil. Rotarians Chris Beattie,Greg Watson, & Graeme Lewis, together with our stalwart friend of Cleveland Rotary Steve Neil cooking, our brand new super marquee got a good working out. Check out the rest of the photos in the Photo Gallery. Thanks to all the members who did Registrations yesterday and early this morning, and marshalled out in the hot, sticky weather this morning. Another good fundraiser for Cleveland Rotary and the Alexandra Hills State High School Interact Club.
Changing Trends in Media
Brian Hurst is thanked by PP Ron Loney for a very interesting talk about the changing trends in media. From the number of questions following, and despite the technology not working at all, Brian had the attention of the whole room. Are newspapers a thing of the past? The print version is certainly going that way. How many people subscribe to their news online? Lots to ponder and lots of new ways to get our daily dose of news. Also discussed was the change in the way journalists present the news - the world is changing so rapidly, this is another area in which we have to run to keep up with the changes.
Safety in the Workplace
In a presentation that was very difficult to condense to the time limit, Rotarian Mike Sudmalis spoke about Safety in our lives, and in particular how large corporations such as the Oil and Gas Industry deal with it. A particular episode, the Piper Alpha explosion in 1988 in the North Sea oilfields was used as an illustration. See the link in your own time and remind yourself of the need for vigilance and preparedness for safety at all times and all levels.
Yu-Min Sun Reflects on a life-changing experience

That’s why Rotary members are devoted to fighting and preventing diseases. From offering temporary clinics, blood donation centers, and training facilities in underserved communities to designing and building infrastructure to allow doctors, patients, and governments to work together, Rotary members take on efforts both large and small.Read more...

What does it mean to practice peace?
Nations observe 21 September as International Day of Peace, a “day of global ceasefire and nonviolence.” Rotary’s commitment to building peace and resolving conflict is rooted in the Rotary Peace Centers, which yearly prepare up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master’s degree program or a three-month certificate program at partner universities worldwide.
