Business

  • District Conference, Ditch the Dust, Markets – all cancelled because of COVID-19.

  • Discussion on suspending Coolamon Rotary meeting until 4th May– very little business or activities now happening. All in agreement.

  • Bingo to e suspended until further notice because of COVID-19.

  • Garth invited members to come with on a three-day Blaze Aid fencing trip, while club is in limbo.

  • Daryl asked members to think about ideas to make meetings more enjoyable with a social focus.


Following the discussion of business items, the meeting was adjourned early and members were invited to share fellowship for the rest of the evening.

Editor's note: over the next few weeks, I'll be including informational pieces on viruses in general and the coronavirus in particular.  After doing a bit of reading on the topic, I thought sumarising this information in non-technical terms might help members to better understand the nature of viruses and the biological basis of the current pandemic.
Caronavirus Briefing
Part 1 - The Biology of Viruses. Actually, the title of this installment is misleading because biology is the study of living things. It may surprise you to know that viruses are not considered to be living organisms because they cannot carry out any of the processes that living organisms need to do to except to reproduce, which they can't do by themselves (that will be explained below). Virues are simply packets of genetic information surrounded by an envelope made of protein. That's it--they don't eat, they don't move on their own, they don't reproduce (on their own), in short, they don't carry out any biochemical reactions that characterise all living organisms. Nonetheless, they are quite capable of causing major disruption to the lives of living organisms, as we know all too well.We know that viruses spread from person to person (host to host), which requires some ability to reproduce.If viruses aren't living, then how do they reproduce? They do this simply by getting a living cell from a host to produce more copies of the virus by "reading" the genetic information contained in the virus, which instructs the host cell to produce the various components of the virus (genetic material, protein coat, etc.) and to then assemble them into more virus particles. The virus thus multiplies courtesy of the biochemical machinery of the host, and then spreads to other hosts via secretions from the first host (e.g. via sneeze droplets, faeces, etc.). The ejected virus particles typically enter the new host via moist membranes, such as those found in the eyes, nose and mouth, which is why it's so important not to touch your face after contacting materials that may have been touched (or sneezed/coughed on) by an infected individual. Ejected droplets from a person infected with coronavirus can remain viable for hours or days, depending on the surface composition (up to 3 days on plastic and stainless steel), which is why it's important to wash your hands thoroughly after touching anything in areas where infected people might have come in contact. In the next installment, we'll look at the various types of viruses that cause major illnesses.- Paul Weston

THE PUZZLER


Answer to last puzzler: The misspelled word was "receipt".

This week's puzzler: What am I?

  • You have me today,

  • Tomorrow you'll have more;

  • As your time passes,

  • I'm not easy to store;

  • I don't take up space,

  • But I'm only in one place;

  • I am what you saw,

  • But not what you see.

Coolamon Rotary Bulletin – #1920-28


Meeting of March 9th


PP Paul welcomed  members, guests Chez P, Susan G and visiting Rotarian John Egan and his wife, Maria. Apologies from  Daryl, Marianne, Ian, Lyn, Grahame, Leslie, Neil, Bernie and Garth.

Correspondence from Secretary John:

  • Reciept from Australia Rotary Health acknowledging our donation of $2500 for Indigenous Health Scholarship 

  • Registration for the district conference in Temora closes this Thursday, 12 March

  • Draft of new Bingo poster was circulated for comment


Business:

  • Coolamon Rotary Easter markets will go ahead on Easter Saturday in Pieper Park (in the main street of Coolamon). Volunteers will be needed to sell raffle tickets on the day.

  • A most worthwhile read is the report from District Governor Peter Ford (District 9710, with whom we are merging in July), copied below (this was inadvertently omitted from the last bulletin).


Guest speaker (John Egan)

Wagga Wagga-Wollundry Rotarian PDG John Egan gave a most informative talk on the Rotary Foundation and Australian Rotary Health Indigenous Health Scholarship programme, which generated quite a few thoughtful questions.  Henk thanked John for the interesting talk and presented him with a cheque for $2,500 in support of the Indigenous Health Scholarships.  We hope to meet the student we're sponsoring sometime later in the year.

Albert led a rather abbreviated fine session.  The raffle was won by Chez (again!) and Howard.

 

Message from District Governor Peter Ford (District 9710)


It has been an extremely difficult couple of months for D9710. Leading in with the severe drought conditions, we were then hit in multiple locations by the bushfires. My thoughts go out to all the affected areas and clubs. These fires have been devastating and it will be a long road to recovery. With this in mind, I formed the District Bush Fire Recovery Committee (DBFC), chaired by PDG Phil Armstrong and with representatives from both D9700 and D9710. Rotarians are not traditionally first responders. We are here for the long haul to do what we do best – making a difference in our local communities. You will have heard from me and the DBRC already and there is much more to come. The DBRC is meeting weekly and newsletters will be issued periodically. I must congratulate the clubs that have taken up the initiative to put some recovery programs into place in their areas. Please keep the DBRC in the loop so that we can achieve a coordinated approach. Offers of assistance are coming from all quarters and we really appreciate this support, not the least of which is being managed through the Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) and the National Disaster Appeal. In the near future, we anticipate that there will be a dispersal of funds from this appeal. This will be managed by a group of District Governors and PDG Phil Armstrong will represent our Districts (9710/9700) as part of that group. 

Peter Ford, DG

Meeting of 24 February


PP President Daryl welcomed 21 members and 21 guests, including 5 from Batlow, namely Margaret Isselmann, John Hides, PE Sam Hughes, Terry Peel & Terry Murphy.  Also attending was D9705 AG Elect Martin Brown from Tumbarumba.

Apologies from  Marianne, Henk, Lyn, Dave and Neil.

[The challenge for this week is: Can you spot the spelling errors in the story below? ]

John Bond was asked to introduce his guests Lauren, Meg and Geraldine from the Riverina Conservatorium of Music in Wagga Wagga. Lauren spoke on their desire to give a musical performance at a suitable venue in Batlow to help lift spirits of the community.



Each of the visiting Rotarians from the Snowy Valley Council area introduced themselves and gave a brief on their occupation/interests.  Finally Secretary Margaret Isselmann of Batlow Rotary, who can talk under water, so she claimed, gave a more lengthy talk, giving an explanation of why their President Greg couldn’t attend our meeting.  She also mentioned the support they have been offered from various organisations after the fires which almost devastated Batlow, such as the Belconnen Rotary Club visiting Batlow and Tumbarumba this weekend with their generous offer, the need for finding a landscape garden designer to help in planning a community garden, etc. She thanked Coolamon Club for their support and expressed her hope that we can work together on a suitable project to help Batlow recover from the recent bushfires.

Terry Peel had everyone's attention.



Terry Peel then spoke briefly on the tradegy of loosing his house and sheds and part of their chestnut orchard to the fires. He commented that in loosing his sheds he also lost all his tools and equipment, which amounted to many thousand of dollars. As an aside, he also spoke on his long term dream of creating a tourist park at the entrance to Batlow. This could be one of the projects we assist Batlow with.

Daryl then presented Secretary Margaret with a certificate recognising the twinning of the Batlow and Coolamon Rotary Clubs.



Albert led a lively fine session, which was followed by a few cheeky cross fines. After the weekly raffle, which was won by John from the Batlow club, Dick auctioned off a "Regrow Batlow" T-shirt, which went to top-bidder Ian. Those sitting near Dick got quite an earful!

Meeting of 3 February


VP Daryl welcomed 22 members and special guest speakers Jackson, Tim & Peta Wykes, and several other guests (Jann B, Heather McK, Anne B, Maureen H, Maree J, Marilyn J, Susan G, Fiona P and Chez).

Apologies from  John B, Bruce, John N and Lyn.



Correspondence:

  • Red Neck Rally on March 1 to 6 raising funds for Country Hope.

  • Hot Rods coming to Coolamon -  March 14 & 15. Coolamon Rotary have been asked to cater for breakfast.

  • Ditch the Drought event on afternoon of Easter Saturday on April 11th, following our markets and the Up-To-Date Art Battle.


Business:

  • Batlow Club Visit on February 24, 6 or 7 members arriving 6pm at Sports Club. 

  • Bingo this week. Rostered on are Henk (captain), Dick, Don & Ian.


Daryl conducted the induction of Brian Pattison into our club, sponsored by Ian and Dick Jennings. 



 

Guest speakers:

Tim started the talk by sincerely thanking the Rotary Club of Coolamon for the opportunity for Jackson to experience the 12 month exchange to Finland.

Peta & Jackson then presented a slide show of their recent eight-week tour, which started in Dubai and then proceeded on to Denmark and Finland.

The Wykeses stopped off in Dubai for a few days and described it as WOW! They toured the old & the new part of the city. They then travelled to Denmark and visited the spiral forest tower & Tivoli Gardens, among other highlights.  

After exploring Denmark for almost two weeks they then went to Helsinki, Finland, where Jackson spent his Rotary Exchange year in 2018. Normally the capital is covered in snow in winter, but while they were there, there sadly was none. They stayed with most of Jackson’s host families in the town of Urjala and attended a Rotary meeting in Aservo nearby.  While staying at Jackson’s first host family they went on a dog sled ride on the ice and Peta had a fit when they found out in the middle of the journey they were on an ice-covered lake! Because they were in Finland in the middle of winter, the sun rose about 11.30 in the morning and set a few hours later about 2 pm!!!

Our new Youth Service director, Anne, thanked them for their presentation.



The raffle was won by Chez (both prizes!) and Albert concluded the evening with an entertaining fine session.

Meeting of 3 February


VP Daryl welcomed 18 members.  Apologies from Dick, Myffy, Albert, Lyn, Marianne & Garth.

Daryl thanked all those who helped cater for the Australia Day celebrations last Sunday.

Daryl reminded us that next Monday’s meeting (February 10) we will be welcoming Jackson Wykes & family to our meeting. They'll be telling us of their summer holiday visiting the families in Finland who hosted Jackson at various stages of the year he spent on the Rotary Youth Exchange Program. Partners & guests are most welcome on this night.

Bingo is starting up again this Thursday, February 13.  Rostered on are  Henk (captain), Don (for Bruce), Dick & Ian.

If you are one of the 8 members who have not replied to Grahame’s email as to when you’d prefer to be rostered on to Bingo for 2020, please do so ASAP, to avoid being slotted into a month that doesn’t suit you. To be fair to all concerned, every member should help out at least once each year to spread the load more evenly.

Correspondence:

  • Thank you letter from Council for our contribution to Australia Day celebrations.


Club Assembly:

  • Minutes of the 3 previous board meetings have been sent to all members.

  • Treasurer Henk gave a report on NYE catering and reported balances on club accounts.

  • It has been decided that we'll help Temora Rotary at the upcoming district conference by staffing the RDU booth on the Saturday & half of Sunday.

  • Our members agreed to host members of the Batlow Rotary Club on Monday February 24, when they will present to us some ideas as to how we can help their town recover from the recent bush fires. We will also discuss the formality of Batlow Club becoming a sister club to Coolamon Rotary. We have offered to billet 6 or 7 of their members who will arrive at the Sport & Rec Club at about 6 pm;  if you have the facilities to billet a member on that Monday night please let us know by Monday (10 Feb).

  • We have agreed to participate in the Coolamon Ditch the Dust family bike ride & party event on Easter Saturday, in conjunction with our annual Easter Markets. More details to come.

  • It was voted to donate $4K to either Allawah Lodge or our local hospital each year.

  • A few other topics were briefly discussed but further research is needed before being ratified.


Time did not permit a fine session or raffle.

Please note: Brian Pattison will be inducted as a new member on Monday (10 Feb), so please show up and show your support for our newest member!

Welcome back from the silly season!


Henk welcomed 20 members & guests Maureen H, Jan N, Heather McK, Lorraine H, Marilyn J, Sally F, and Brian & Fiona Pattison to our first meeting back after our Christmas/New Year break.

Apologies from Daryl, Marianne & Garth.



Those in attendance enjoyed a tasty barbecue dinner prepared by Henk and Albert.  Following dinner and dessert, Grahame spoke on the trip to Batlow by Ian, Dave, Ted & Grahame.  Ian drove the group to Batlow on Thursday afternoon and their first port of call was the pub where they had a few refreshments and chatted with some locals, including one member of the Batlow Rotary Club. They then booked themselves in to the motel, which was next door to the RSL Club, where the Coolamon Rotarians joined the members of the Batlow club for drinks and dinner. The Batlow Rotarians expressed their appreciation for the four visiting their town & attending their meeting and our offer of whatever assistance we can come up with after their town and surrounds had been so devastated by the bushfires.



 

A number of ideas were discussed such as our club ‘sistering’ with the Batlow Club and exchanging weekly bulletins with each other and perhaps hosting their members if we can organise for them to visit us here in Coolamon down the track.

The next morning the boys had breakfast at the bakery and encountered a number of members of the armed forces who have been deployed to Batlow for up to two months to help in the huge, huge task of cleaning up the devastation around the district.  On their drive back to Coolamon, the quartet came across some army vehicles out in the field and took photos and chatted with some of the army guys about the work they had been assigned to.

Much more could be talked about their experiences but time and space won’t allow here. Grahame reports that he, Ian, Dave and Ted found the trip to Batlow most rewarding for all concerned.

Jan N won the raffle, and Ian led a brief fine session to conclude the evening.

 Dinner Meeting - December 9th - Last meeting of 2019


President Wayne welcomed 18 members to our last meeting of 2019.

Apologies from Don, Daryl, Sarah, Ian, Bern, Garth, Leslie and Marie-Anne.

Correspondence:

  • Letters from schools thanking us for donations towards presentation nights

  • Letter from Council rejecting our proposal to post signs advertising service clubs at the entrances to Coolamon.

  • Monday, Feb 10, 2020 - Wykes family visiting our Club meeting

  • Saturday, April 4 - Family biking event in Coolamon. Stay tuned for details!

Guest Speakers: Howard Atkinson


Rotarian Howard gave a presentation on North Tuppal Shearing Station near Tocumwal, which has been owned by his Atkinson family since 1928.   He showed a number of slides, one of which was Tuppal woolshed, which was chosen as the site for the 2010 re-enactment of Tom Robert’s ‘Shearing the Rams.

Established in the 1880s by Francis Falkiner, the business went on to build an empire of sheep stations, some of which have endured through to the present day. One of their early holdings, North Tuppal, was purchased in 1891 near Tocumwal. The acquisition included the 1860s built woolshed and added 124,000 head of sheep to their growing empire.                                     

North Tuppal Station once had the biggest and best shearing shed in the country. It was made of termite and flood resistant Murray pine - local to the area. When it was in full production it boasted an impressive 72 shearers, shearing 5000 sheep a day, with another 200 associated workers.  Over a 21-year period, a total of 3 million sheep were shorn on the property. After its early success and following the Great War, drought & the Depression, the Tuppal property was broken up, with land resumed by both the NSW Lands Department and the Soldier Settlement Scheme.  By the time the Atkinson family bought North Tuppal in 1928, just five mechanical stands were in operation                                                                                                                                          

In 2008, owners Bruce & Shana Atkinson were approached to open it up to the public. Thousands of volunteer hours went into repairing the iconic building.  15,000 people descended on the property over two days in 2010, with 6000 sheep shorn. This large-scale project captured the action Tom Roberts portrayed so famously in his painting, ‘Shearing The Rams’.

Shearers at North Tuppal Station using old fashioned blades recreate Tom Roberts painting 'Shearing of the Rams.'
