DG Wendy Protheroe visits Cleveland and Capalaba

District 9620 Governor, Wendy Protheroe, from Brisbane High Rise Rotary Club, met with members of Capalaba and Cleveland at the Capalaba Sports Club on Monday evening. Wendy entertained us with stories about her visits to western clubs, and the fellowship - such a cornerstone of Rotary membership - she has found as she moves around the District. Wendy raised the importance of ensuring we have fun as we continue the work of Rotary, ensuring that people are encouraged to join our ranks. A major example cited was the Roma Club, which has opened its doors to women after many years, and now has a succession plan with these young women standing up for leadership roles. In our present dilemma of needing a PE and future leaders - we need to all come together and work on this strategy on December 14th when Ian Neil will be leading our Strategy Planning discussions.

Social Media and Rotary Club of Cleveland

Thanks to a small group of Rotarians working with Tom Wilson, Director of Marketing at HFB, work is being done to improve our social media presence, encourage more people to engage with our club and our projects. Tom has put together a video to help those unfamiliar with promoting things on Facebook, See below the link to the video and to our Facebook site.

I mention a link to the rotary page on Facebook in the video, that link is here: https://www.facebook.com/rotaryclevelandqld/

Redlands Coast Salad Bowl Gardens

What an inspiring talk by Craig Wilson on Tuesday night, about the development of the Community Garden at Redland Bay. Do take the time to go down and have a look at it (Fielding Street Park), check it out on Facebook and see what the members of the local community are growing there. Craig's father, Gordon, was a Charter Member of our club, and the ideals of our Four Way Test were explained to him as a child, and remained with him. Amazing what one person leading a committed group of community members can achieve, despite obstacles along the way. Congratulations Craig on a great initiative. 

Musique en Rouge

Diner en Rouge, re-branded this year as Musique en Rouge due to COVID restrictions, was the 7th year we have participated in the Mayor's fundraising campaign for Redlands Victims of family and domestic violence. Held at RPAC, a great night of entertainment and thought provoking speeches from Vanessa Fowler (Alison Baden-Clay Foundation) and Assistant Commissioner Brian Codd were followed by entertainment from Bella Diva and Luke Kennedy with the Little Red Band. More photos in the Photo Gallery

Golf Day 2021

Another Golf Day is done - and huge congratulations to Tony Ooi for yet another fantastic club event. A very successful event with masses of support from the community. The Redland Bay Golf Club staff are to be congratulated for helping us run a fun filled charity day. The rain held off to the very end of the day, allowing our visitors from Toowoomba to also enjoy their game and catching up with old friends.  Check out the Photo Gallery for pictures of all teams.

Michelle Rankin in Balibo, Timor Leste

Why would a professional working woman, wife and mother, leave her family behind in Australia and travel to a remote area, where there is poverty, political unrest and the well known history of the Balibo 5? Michelle Rankin told us about the amazing work being done by Palms Australia, in the Balibo area of Timor Leste. Under the Palms organisation, Michelle put her life on hold in Australia in 2016 to go to Balibo and work with the local people. Until the volunteers were withdrawn in 2020 due to COVID 19, Michelle lived and worked with the local people, helping to improve the health of the local community with support from Rotary including through DIK. A dental clinic was one of the later achievements, with visiting dentists gradually teaching local dentists the skills required to continue the work. Visit www.palms.org.au to see the work being done.

Hat Day for Mental Health

A week late, sorry - but check out the Photo Gallery for all the photos from last week! A great night was had by all, lots of crazy hats, and good funds raised for Australian Rotary Health.  ARH District Rep. Roger Crawfoot updated us about the service, with good background for those who are newer to Rotary. Chrystal Endean told us about her journey as a student under the ARH Indigenous Scholarship supported by our club - what an amazing young lady, who is going a long way in her chosen field of health.

Destiny Rescue

Marc Nuss, from Destiny Rescue, made a huge impression on members, outlining in a very small part some of the work done in nearby countries, to rescue children being exploited as sex slaves. The organisation has been working for 20 years to rescue young girls and help them to have as normal a life as possible. The stories are tragic, the children in some cases extremely young - actually babies in some instances. Check out their website - www.destinyrescue.org.au
