Breakfasts are better now!

Pres. John and PP Ross Pollock admiring our new toaster - we can now serve toasted muffins with our legendary breakfasts! Redland City Council Depot staff recommend our services! We also served breakfast at the Redlands  City Chamber of Commerce Breakfast on Wednesday morning at the Redlands Research facility. Huge thanks to the leadership and drive of our Pres. John - we are really getting out and about, meeting so many new people in the community. And thanks to our volunteers who rise and shine early to prepare, cook and serve breakfast with a smile.

Helping our Disaffected Youth

Mons. John Butler, founder of Vitae, an organisation which mentors and supports young males in the 11-13 age group who have become disillusioned with and disruptive in their lives at home and at school. In January 2018, the organisation changed from dealing with older youth, to working with younger boys, by introducing the Vitae Challenge.

Vitae’s concern over the incidence among Australian youth of anti-social behaviour, violence, crime, substance abuse and suicide has led to the creation of Vitae Challenge.

Vitae Challenge is a program over one year. It consists of two Phases – the Bush Phase and the Mateship Phase – and is open to any male youth, 11 - 13 years of age, exhibiting tendencies to the behaviour described above.

Each youth who nominates for the Vitae Challenge must commit to participate fully in both the Bush Phase and the Mateship Phase."

Check out their website www.vitae.org.au - the statements above are copied from their website.

Bowls Night

Our monthly social meeting was Social Bowls at Redlands Sporting Club last Tuesday night. Patient members of the Bowls Club guided relaxing Rotarians and their partners to a night of bowls, Cleveland Rotary style.  Nothing too serious in our lane, although some were perhaps a little more competitive in other lanes. Lots of fun and laughter, drinks and good food, and a little bowling exercise thrown in. Many thanks to the long suffering gentlemen who tried to teach us the finer points of lawn bowls!!  See Photo Gallery for more snapshots.

Kiunga, PNG

Anore, of Kiunga, showing off clothes made in the village sewing room, created from a container, using sewing machines sent previously - possibly in that container.  Great use is made of equipment we send to PNG, and another Wish List has been received from Bishop Gilles. The photo below is Margaret, who is deaf & mute, but can lip read very well, and has learnt to sew since the sewing machines were donated to her village. Thanks to Albert for his ongoing support for these communities in PNG.
