Rotary Theme for 2022-2023

RI President-elect Jennifer Jones imagines a Rotary where members act to make their dreams become reality and they make the most of their club experiences. She urges members to engage more with each other and use these connections to build partnerships that change the world.

Tonga Volcanic Eruption & Tsunami Appeal

As aid is now slowly starting to arive in Tonga, we have the opportunity to help through RAWCS. See details below, received from DIK yesterday. Details of how to donate on next screen.

The effects of the Volcano and Tsunami on January 15th will be far-reaching, impacting the Tonga Community for months, possibly years to come.

Communication remains problematic with international and inter-island call still not possible due to the damage to the undersea cable.

Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) will be working with Rotary New Zealand World Community Service (RNZWCS) and Rotary Club of Nuku’alofa (Tonga) in providing aid and assistance to the affected communities’ and restoring their livelihoods.

Christmas on the Coast 2021

A huge thank you to all our wonderful voluinteers. With 3 gates where the public come and go - then come back again, and cooking and serving sausages, drinks and candles, we have been very busy - and we still have 3 nights to go. We have had our own Mighty Club volunteers, some every night for both shifts, a great team from the E-Club of Australia Nomads, The Redland Museum voluinteers, partners and friends. Thanks must also go to Battery World Capalaba for their donation of candles for us to sell, and the amazing Events Team at Redland City Council  for the planning and organisation that goes into staging this annual Christmas celebration. Merry Christmas everyone!

Welcome Trent to the Mighty Club

Last night we had our AGM and Strategy meeting, but not before we welcomed our newest member, Trent Newcomb. Trent has several years of Rotary experience - previously at Charters Towers and Alice Springs, and is in the education sector - very interested in youth projects. We look forward to working with you in the future Trent.

The AGM sees us still without a President for 2022-2023 - can you (yes any experienced member of the club) step up to fill this role? You will have lots of support from your board and all members. Gavin Becker has stepped up as PE for 2023-2024, John Lipman as Secretary, John Simpson as Treasurer, Ishbel Taylor - International, Lyn Packer - Youth, David Furness - Membership, Gavin Becker - Environment/Sustainability. This leaves Club Service, Community and Vocational to be filled - we need people to step forward into those roles asap, so we can be prepared for the next year of Rotary service.

Donated goods help girls learn to sew

As most of you are aware, through Donations In Kind, Albert has sent a number of containers to PNG, to help in the education and development of young people. The last container included several sewing machines and bolts of material. Albert recently received the photo above with the following message of thanks.

 Greetings in the name of the Lord, hope you are well.

 I am sending you the photo of the children with the nice cloths we stitched with your donated cloths, the women’s club stitched the Meri Baluse (cloths for girls) at the same time taught the youth girls how to stitch them. We distributed the cloths to the children studying in our literacy school as their Christmas gift. They were so happy and thanked you and the Rotary club for this beautiful gift. 

 Thank you for your kindness and support towards the diocese. 

 With kind regards  + Rozario Menezes s.m.m

ESRAG and Water and Sanitation in Cambodia

Two guest speakers last night took us to different parts of the world, but there was a synergy with their messages. The environment we live in must be improved - and Rotary has the desire to carry out that work. Two of Rotary's areas of focus were covered in these projects.

Colin Scobie, from Redcliffe Sunrise Rotary Club, showed several video clips and spoke about an interesting program for the protection of the Moreton Bay Marine Park - Moreton Bay Oyster Reef Restoration. ESRAG - Moreton Bay are working to restore the oyster supplies, so when you have your seafood meals over Christmas, Shuck but don't chuck! Click on this link for more inormation Moreton_Bay_Oyster_Reef_Restoration.pdf .  A project for us in this southern end of Moreton Bay? Other relevant douments - ESRAG_Moreton_Bay.pdf  and  Threatened_Migratory_Shorebirds.pdf

Darrel Steer told us about his project - Cambodia Clean Water & Toilet Project - a registered Australian Charity. Click below for more inormation.

From Cleveland Albert brought his ride-on mower and cleared lots of long grass, Anna braved the heat picking up rubbish, cleaning and clearing various parts of the site, Shirley sorted books ready for shipping.  Next Saturday, more helpers are needed to pack a container - 8-12 at 23 Mary Street, Kingston.

Rotary Foundation, Global Scholar and .....

What an interesting evening - full of different aspects of the world of Rotary. Zooming in was Makaela Fehlhaber, Global Scholar from Glasgow University. What an amazing young woman! Google her - you will be astounded at the breadth of her achievements - easy to see why she was awarded a scholarship by the Rotary Foundation. We then saw and heard Tom Wilson, Digital Manager for HFB, about our Facebook page - see the previous news item and click on the link.  Elwyn ran through his 200 slides about the Rotary Foundation, our charity, at terrific pace - so important that we support TRF and help Rotary to Do Good in the World. Finally we presented Annette Smith, Breast Care Support nurse from Redlands Hospital, with several bags of bras to help her patients. Vicky and I both have contact details if you wish to donate more.

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.
