  • Fayah McKenzie sent a lovely card in thanks for the get well card Coolamon rotary sent to her after her recent heart problems

Guest Speaker - John Glassford on Christchurch


John gave a riveting talk on his recent visit to Christchurch for the recent Australia/New Zealand Rotary conference. The City put on a great conference showing just how resilient the people of Christchurch are with some amazing guest speakers.

Much of the city is still recovering from the 2011 Earth quake, with many historic buildings needing such significant repairs that funds have not yet been raised. 185  people died in the quake and 100 000 buildings were damaged many still in need of repair. For example the Anglican cathedral requires 160 million to rebuild to the new earthquake building standards, while the Catholic cathedral needing similar funding has has been deem unsalvageable and is to soon be demolished.

Dinner Meeting of September 23rd


President Wayne welcomed 21 members and guests Chez Post, Anne Baker, Mary Anne Costello and visiting Rotarians from Wollundry David Pyke, Phil Mcintosh, Geoff Bruest and David Byfield.

Apologies from Bern, Daryl, John G, Bruce, Neil & Dave.

Business items:

  • A motion moved and passed to ask Secretary John to send a thank you letter to each of the non-members who helped with the baking of Anzac biscuits for Gears & Beers riders and to the School for allowing us to use the school kitchen and for providing ingredients for baking.   

  • There will be a club assembly on Oct 16.

  • 22 members are going to ‘Ride Like a Girl’ movie on Tuesday night at 7 pm in Wagga.

  • Paul brought up the need for a committee to organise Easter Markets; Grahame, Ian, Dick and Leslie have agreed to be on committee.


Phil McIntosh from Wollundry Club gave a talk on the planning for Gears & Beers and the responsibilities of our club in and around the Coolamon. A number of our members have been rostered onto various intersection checkpoints, which were recorded by Albert;  other members will be helping in serving Anzac biscuits, fruit cake, fruit & water at both Marrar and Coolamon. 

Our club will need to erect gazebos from which food and water can be served. The need for 1 or 2 coffee stalls came up, as the one there last year was apparently overwhelmed. Toilets were discussed and Wollundry Rotary will organise porta-loos to be located at both the Marrar and Coolamon stops. Maybe it could be looked into if the toilets on the railway station could be opened on that morning??                

See more details on the Gears & Beers ride in the story below.

Because of the extensive discussion regarding Gears & Beers, there was no time for a fine session or raffle this week.

 

1600 Gears & Beers riders expected through Coolamon


On Sunday, October 6th, approximately 1600 bike riders will be passing through Coolamon for the annual Gears & Beers Festival.  There are 6 different options for the riders: 7 km distance, 30 km, 50 km, the ‘Filthy 50’ (mostly on unsealed roads), the 115 km and the ‘Dirty 130’ (on sealed & unsealed roads). It is the last two rides which will be passing through Coolamon.  

If interested, view the courses at  https://gearsandbeers.org.au/pages/courses.

Approximately two-thirds through the journey, most riders will be stopping in Coolamon’s Lions Park, where they can recharge with drinks, fruit cake, ANZAC biscuits & fruit, all provided by the Rotary Club of Coolamon.  It would be fantastic if the riders could be welcomed to Coolamon by crowds of locals from 8 am to 10 am.

The event was started by Wagga Wagga’s Wollundry Rotary Club four years ago and has grown astronomically since. Owing to its popularity, they have recruited other Rotary Clubs in the district to help out. Coolamon Rotary Club will be responsible for manning check points at various intersections within a 15 km radius of Coolamon, plus providing & serving drinks & food when many of the riders have a breather in Coolamon’s Lions Park, opposite the Coolamon Hotel.

Once arriving back in Wagga Wagga, the riders and spectators can enjoy the festivities in the Victory Memorial Gardens, which of course will feature locally produced beer and cider and a range of food options. Details can be found at  https://gearsandbeers.org.au/pages/the-festival.

  • Numbers are needed for baking Anzac biscuits on Saturday at Coolamon Central School for Gears & Beers. Please let Jann Bruest know ASAP (6927 3396).

The evening finished with an entertaining fine session led by Sergeant-at-Arms Albert and a raffle, which was won by Grahame (who claimed it was the first time he has won the weekly raffle) and Bruce.

Guest Speaker, Carrie and Will Studholm


Guest speaker Carrie Studholm gave a talk on her 13 y.o. son Will’s brain bleed 2 years ago and the scare and trauma he and the family went through. Carrie thanked all the medical staff including the excellent efforts of Dr. Amir and our hospital staff who  reacted quickly and stabilised Will for the trip to Wagga Base Hospital. From Wagga Base, Will was flown to Royal Children's  Hospital in Sydney, where he was operated on and had subsequent physio and rehabilitation. Today Will is close to being fully recovered. On returning home Will initially went back to school for one day a week and is now attending most days. Will still has follow-up appointments but is expected to make a full recovery with an extremely low chance of a re-occurrence throughout his life. The cause of the bleed was a malformation of the blood vessels that developed in utero before Will was born and remained undetected until the bleed occurred. The money our club donated to the family was matched with a grant through RAWCS. Neil thanked Carrie and Will for their talk and presented with a gift.

Neil thanks Will and Carrie for speaking on their difficult time.

Dinner Meeting of September 2nd


President Wayne welcomed 23 members & guests PDG John Egan & Maria, Marilyn J, Chez & prospective member Maryanne Costello.

Apologies from Myffy, Paul and Lyn.

Business for the evening:

  • Sarah has been successful in gaining two RYPEN applicants (Amanda and Chontal Costello). No takers as yet for RYLA. 

  • Catering for Junior Football  & Netball presentation night for about 120 people on Saturday, Sept 14 at 5 pm - see roster below

  • Neil announced the 9th Royce Abbey Peace Oration & Dinner is on Sat 21st Sept, from 6.30 pm, to observe UN International Day of Peace at the Wagga Wagga Commercial Club.

  • Daryl spoke on Gears & Beers on October 6th; he has been talking with David Byfield, from Wollundry Club, to be informed the course has changed a little, which may need fewer marshalls.  John Egan, also from Wollundry club, thanked our club for their support for the event.

  • Neil Munro showed some historic newspaper clippings from the past, which generated some discussion and brought back memories.


 

Guest Speaker PDG John Egan


John Egan initially gave a presentation on RAWCS, which he described as the charitable arm of Australian Rotary; a group which assists disadvantaged  groups & individuals & is tax deductible. Other projects include distributing drought funds, etc. 

He then talked about Australian Rotary Health (ARH). ARH was started about 30 years ago when there were a lot of cot deaths and has been instrumental in reducing them from 150 cases per year to less than 3 per year now.

ARH has worked to lessen the stigma of mental health problems, which afflict 1 in 5 people in one form or another.  John made the point that a conversation with someone who may be suffering could change a life. ARH also works with young children.  

ARH has also introduced Indigenous Medical Scholarships.  John gave an example of an indigenous person who has taken advantage of the scholarship and has worked his way up to be a doctor.  Indigenous Scholarships cost $2500 per year.

After his presentation,discussion ensued dealing with the importance of education, which couldn’t be emphasised enough. 

President Wayne thanked John for his presentation.

Dinner Meeting of August 26th


President Wayne welcomed 19 members and guests DG John & Fayah McKenzie, Maryanne Costello, Chez, and Susan G. 

Apologies from Dave, Neil, Ian, Daryl, Myffy, John N, Mark and Howard.

Business for the evening included:

  • Twin Clubs bulletin from Hout Bay distributed among members

  • RYPEN applications have come in for 14 to 16 y.o. in year 9 for a three day camp at Borambola. 

  • Barry Dennis asked if the club could  do the BBQ for the Junior Football/Netball Presentation Night on Saturday, Sept 14 at 5 pm. All in agreement that we should support the junior footballers for the evening. 


 

Guest Speaker DG John McKenzie


John introduced the club to the new Rotary International president Mark Maloney from the southern state of Illinios of USA & his message via video. Mark gave a rousing speech to encourage Rotary to be a family organisation and promote the theme of Rotary Connects the World

To achieve the strategic objectives John encouraged us to increase our impact on our community & expand our reach by changing the way people perceive us such as the need to change old perception held beyond Rotary that only one career is allowed in each Rotary Club and enhance participation engagement by delivering values to members.

John then told us how effective Rotary's international efforts have been in the battle against Polio. He showed us the benefits of donating to Rotary Foundation End Polio Now program as only Afghanistan & Pakistan still have Polio endemic in the area with 66 known cases  this year and Nigeria now 3 years clear of all polio cases and the continent of Africa now declared Polio free. Work is still ongoing in  Afghanistan & Pakistan though some challenges have arising in recent months.

For the Rotary efforts in Australia, John discussed Purple House, which provides dialysis for kidney disease in remote areas to help indigenous and remote residents stay in the communities that they feel connected to. He encouraged Rotary members to not just donate but to also lend their labour and effort if they happen to be in areas such as Alice Spring from which purple house is based  as all assistance is welcome.

John also spoke on the new district of 9705 by joining 9700 with 9710 and highlighted its positives, such as greater connection and friendships with fellow Rotarians across the region. John then ran through the program for the District Conference in Temora next year, starting on Friday night, March 20 at the Bundawarah Centre (Rural Museum) & then at the Aviation Museum on Sat night.

Finally John encouraged Rotarians be active and get connected with one really good way of doing so being to vist the www.rotary.org website more.

President Wayne thanked DG John McKenzie



President Wayne thanked John for his presentation and gave him a gift from our club.

Albert won the raffle and then finished off the evening with a rousing fine session.

Dinner Meeting of August 19th


President Wayne welcomed 19 members and guests Chez and prospective member Maryanne Costello. Apologies from Dave, Dick, Lyn, Myffy, Daryl, Sarah, John N, Bern, Neil and Albert.

Subs are now due for the period July to December; pay now to keep your voting rights!

Get together with Narrandera Club has been put on back burner for now because a date good for both clubs can't be agreed at present.  President Wayne is thinking we might shoot for late January before we get back into the full swing of Rotary after the silly season.

Trivia Night this Friday.  Our club has 2 tables of 8 booked.




Stop Press - ‘The Hall Committee’ play at the Ganmain Hall,  Saturday, September 7, 7:30 pm.

Written, directed & co-starring by Damian Callinan, the writer of the hit movie The Merger, The Hall Committee will include a cast of local Wagga and Sydney actors to bring to life the folk of Rummage South Hall Committee past and present




Our guest speaker tonight was our member John Bond, who gave us an in-depth presentation of the effects on our planet of solar flares/sunspot activity and how they can disrupt communications & power distribution and have an influence on our weather. His talk generated some interesting questions from members about radio wave communications and variables in weather patterns over the years.

Here is a brief overview of the presentation in John’s words:

  • Physical properties of the sun – focussing on sunspots, flares and coronal mass ejections (CME’s)

  • Sunspot activity has cycles of 11 and 90 years.

  • Three principle methods of radio wave propagation with a focus on sky wave propagation utilising the ionosphere.

  • Using BOM GRAFEX Charts to predict frequencies for best intercontinental radio links.

  • Effects of significant solar events – particularly CME’s, on power distribution systems, radio communications links and equipment, satellites and their crews, and the effects on our health with significant increased ionizing radiation  such as X rays.

  • Principle causes of temperature variation in the earth's troposphere, and explore the hypothesis that anthropogenic (manmade) effects are the cause of the current climate change on Earth.


Howard thanked John for a most illuminating and engaging talk.



The evening concluded with a raffle, which was won by John G.

Dinner Meeting of August 12th


President Wayne welcomed 20 members and guests Marilyn J, Lorraine H, Chez & guest speaker Jennie Nester, cheesemaker at Coolamon Cheese.

Apologies from Dave, Dick, Lyn, Garth and Myffy.

Business of the evening included:

  • Secretary John G announced the sad news of the passing of Auntie Flo Grant. She was closely associated with Rotary, was an honorary member of Kooringal Rotary Club and recognised in NSW and ACT as the Rotary Inspirational Woman of the Year in 2015.

  • Tracy Ocheng, our student in Nairobi, going well.

  • Dick Smith has given another generous donation of one million dollars to RAWCS.

  • A special guest speaker next Monday - John Bond giving a presentation on a topic he is passionate about and most knowledgeable on: Our Nuclear Neighbour, The Sun, and Space Weather caused by sunspots/solar storms and its effects on communication, power distribution & weather on our planet.

  • Captain Henk gave a brief report on BINGO;  there were 11 players and a small profit was made. Helpers were Bruce, Anne and Bern.

  • A reminder of our DG’s visit on August 26. All members are encouraged to attend.

  • Treasurer Henk reminded members of the July subs are past due.

  • Neil reminded us that Will Studholm and his family will be our guests at our Sept 9 meeting. It is anticipated we will have a BBQ with members cooking & purchasing salads externally.  Will was a recipient of the matching grant via Dick Smith program where the grant helped his family cover some of Will’s ongoing rehabilation costs.

  • Daryl announced the food van shed is progressing well;  steel has been cut and construction should be completed within a month.

  • It is expected that 1600 riders will come through Coolamon for the Gears & Beers festival on October 6th

  • John N brought up need for list of where defibrillators are located and the possibility of publishing the list in the CCC.


Guest Speaker Jenn from Coolamon Cheese


Jenn spoke on her job as head cheesemaker at Coolamon Cheese, a position she recently has assumed. Jenn hails from Gippsland in Victoria and worked as a cheesemaker in Gippsland for a number of years. She has five kids with husband Shaun though only one has come to Coolamon, the other four independent children preferring to stay in Victoria. Jenn saw the advert for Head Cheesemaker at Coolamon Cheese and applied for the position, taking up the position in April of this year.

Jenn is settling in well at the factory and is mastering the cheeses of  Coolamon Cheese as well as making new cheeses, including a soft blue named Bell Isle Blue and a cheddar. Jenn will likely continue making most of the native bush recipes started by Barry Lillywhite.

Jenn loves cooking and had previously worked for a while as a caterer.   She is looking into making her own cheese cultures as the cultures are one of the more expensive ingredients in making cheese.  Jenn commented that the cheese industry may be over-regulated in Australia, especially in Victoria.  

Jenn finished her talk by giving us tips on storing cheese, one of the primary ones being the recommendation to store cheese in containers that can 'breathe', and not in plastic wrap as cheese has live cultures that need oxygen. The containers used to cause cheese need to keep cheese from drying out without suffocating it.

After Jenn's talk, there was a large number of interesting questions from the floor. President Wayne thanked Jenn for an excellent talk and presented her with a small gift.



Sergeant-at-Arms Albert led a vigorous and entertaining fine session, which led to some good cross fines.  The evening concluded with a raffle, which was won by Paul.

Meeting of 29th July 2019


President Wayne welcomed members and our guest speakers. Business arising for the evening included:

  • Don't forget your Working With Children Check

  • Temora Rotary is holding a quiz night in association with the Girl Guides on the 31st of August. It would be great if Coolamon Rotary could support them by putting a table together.

  • The Up To Date art exhibition was opened last Friday evening and well represented by Coolamon Rotary.  It is still open for the next two weeks so make sure you make some time to go check out the very high quality art works on display.

  •  The Christmas in July was well represented by Coolamon Rotary. It is great to see our members supporting Coolamon Sport & Rec Club.

  • President Wayne received an email from Coolamon Preschool to see if Wayne was interested in an advertising space in the cookbook they are developing. Wayne suggested that Coolamon Rotary would also be willing to purchase some space. The particulars will go to the board.

  • Albert raised awareness of the 'My Community Project', where community members can vote on the allocation of funds to nominated community projects. To register your vote you need to log in to your Service NSW account and search for the Cootamundra  electorate. To vote, click on the link for My Community Project. Current local nominations are for Expansion of the Coolamon Fire Museum, a new roof for the Coolamon RSL Museum and enhancing the Coolamon Sports and Rec Club facilities.

  • There is a club assembly and planning meeting next week. If you are going to be away and wish to raise an issue, please contact Wayne and let him know.



Guest Speaker: Kevin Farrell from Hot Rodders Association


Kevin and the Hot Rodders are organising their AGM to be in Coolamon from March 14-15th 2020.  These types of events are typically a big financial boon to the communities which host them. Often the visiting hot rodders will spend up from $150-$200 dollars each; 50 to 70 cars and up to 140 people are expected to come to the March event. Accommodation in Coolamon is already booked out for the weekend and further caravan accommodation is being sought via the netball/football club so the hot rodders can access toilets and showers.  Kevin also shared around some wonderful photo books of past events.  We're being asked to do some catering. The hot rodders are also coordinating with the bottle swap meet in order to attract more people to the town.

The hot rodders are asking our club to cater for breakfast (bacon and egg rolls) on Saturday and Sunday morning over the weekend. Rotary members expressed enthusiasm for the event; final arrangements will be worked out at an upcoming board meeting.

President Wayne thanks Kevin Farrell for his talk.




Guest Speaker: David Polhill & Marianne Costello from Fusion


David gave a short presentation on Fusion, a community organisation that began 50-60 years ago to help kids from dysfunctional homes.  David pointed out that the biggest needs of these kids are connection, time and love, and that the lack of these things in the home is expressed as negative behaviour.

Fusion seeks to address this need via camps and group activities which enable kids to talk to the Fusion volunteers, which teaches them new skills to connect and help each other and their community and gives the kids a sense of purpose and belonging. Fusion is solely self- and community-funded and is seeking a partnership with Coolamon Rotary to support the kids in the Coolamon area. Currently they are supporting kids on Friday evenings in the Anglican Hall.

Marianne then shared her personal experiences with many of the children she has worked with as a volunteer, and from her stories it was clear that these kids are lucky to have such a dedicated and passionate person to look out for them. Club members enthusiastically offered their support to help the kids and the good work that Fusion is doing.

President Wayne thanks David and Marianne from Fusion.

The evening concluded with a lively fine session led by Sargeant-at-Arms Albert and a raffle, which was won by Paul, with the second prize going to Helen (who graciously passed her prize of a box of oranges to Fusion)

The teacher said to his class one day, "Please stand up, anyone who thinks they're stupid."

Nobody stood up so the teacher said, "I'm sure there are some stupid students in this class!"

At this point Little Johnny stood up.

The teacher said, "Oh Johnny! So you think you're stupid then?"

Little Johnny replied, "No, I just felt bad that you were standing up on your own."
