Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-32


MEETING OF MARCH 18th


President Daryl welcomed 17 members, including former member Julie who came down from the top end for a visit and brought her sister Cheryl along as a guest. Other guests included Errol Sutherland (our guest speaker for the evening), Albert (on his last night as a guest), and Wayne’s wife, Helen.

The evening began with thoughts and condolences to the people of NZ who suffered a terrible tragedy the previous week with 50 people killed in a violent terror attack. Congratulations went to Daryl and his family who welcomed their first grandchild, Freya, in the early hours of Saturday morning.  Congratulations also went to last Friday night's Rotary vs Rotary bowls pairing, with Paul and Bondy winning the match, the last one of this season's social bowls.

Don’t forget the District conference from 29th to 31st March; please register as early as possible. Should be a great conference and Saturday night is shaping up to be fantastic with the Kapooka band set to get things rolling. Maggie (the iron lung) was in Orange last week and the Oberon to Bathurst leg of the PARADE had 2100 cyclists, which was fantastic.  

Also a reminder that subs are now due.

Guest Speaker: Errol Sutherland


Errol Sutherland was our guest speaker for the evening. A local resident of Coolamon and real estate agent, Errol regaled members and guests with stories of his ‘misspent youth’ as a part of the Victorian football league.

Errol came to live in Coolamon 6 years ago after visiting the region to do research on the small football clubs in the area and decided to settle here.

Errol spent his early youth in a family of football enthusiasts, which was further supported by being the country football development manager for Vic football association before it was absorbed into the AFL.

Errol then shared us with the early history of football including its origins in Victoria in 1858 as  way to keep cricketers fit in winter. The first game was played between Scots and Melbourne Grammar on park-lands on which the MSG is now situated. The teams played for 12 hours on a field that was over a kilometer long and had no limits to the number of payers! Only one goal each was scored for each team in that first game.

In 1859 Melbourne and Geelong also joined the comp and more formal rules of play were introduced. By  1877 the league had 8 teams. In 1888, England brought a football team out and won 14 and lost 11 games. By 1890 the game had become international with New Zealand having up to 48 clubs at one point (financial difficulties eventually lead to their demise). There was even a women's competition in the 1890’s.

The game continued to gain popularity, with up to 54,000 people coming to games in the 1930’s,  the highest per capita attendance in history.

Errol then told a number of personal stories of his time with the league, including his interactions with a long list of well known players and even then Prime minister Bob Hawke. 

Errol worries that AFL has become very corporate and commercialised, with some fans being fanatical and small clubs now doing it tough. Errol cited the example of Rannock football club once being able to draw up to 300  spectators to a game, often with a country dance afterwards and a strong family atmosphere.

Errol said that he had a lot of fun working in football and with an average attendance of 37,000 at each game every week, the AFL is the 4th largest domestic sporting competition in the world.

That’s football!

President Daryl Thanked Errol for his talk on the AFL

Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-31


MEETING OF MARCH 11th


President Daryl welcomed 19 members and guests Helen L, Mick O, Albert S and Russell B for a evening of collegiality and a delightful meal. 

President Daryl then thanked and congratulated Alex, Graeme, Wayne and Ian for a successful ride from Coolamon to Junee for  successful leg of the relay; the baton was passed onto Junee riders to continue the efforts to promote polio awareness and raise funds to eradicate it. Congratulations and thank yous also went to John G and Henk who took the iron lung to the Coolamon Central School on Friday morning. The students found this idea of having to live in an iron lung and having the machine breathe for you to be a confronting and interesting concept. The ability to actually see the iron lung made it all the more real for the students.  

Members were reminded that they should register for the district conference; the speakers are rumoured to be some of the best ever presenting at a conference. You don’t want to miss it!  

Best of luck and good health also went to Grahame who is getting his knee replaced this week. 

Don't forget the street raffle this Saturday outside the newsagent if you're rostered on.  Also, don’t forget that Bingo is this Thursday for those on the team this month. See the diary listing below if you're not sure if you're on either (or both) rosters.

Congratulations also went to the bowling team who had a successful night last Friday and won the business house bowls.

Big thank you to Henk who will be driving the students of Coolamon Central School to the Rotary Youth Driver awareness day. This is an invaluable opportunity for students to learn about handling a vehicle and driver safety and it helps to ensure that our youth drivers make it home safely.   

Janice Menzies, organiser of Doin’ it for Drought-Affected Kids, sent a video compilation of the donation day at Broken Hill for the School of the Air children. It was great to see all the children happy and smiling on receiving their donations and congratulations go to Janice and her team for their massive effort.   

 

Guest Speaker: Albert Suidgeest 


Albert gave a presentation of his family and life history, a fascinating story of his Dutch immigrant parents who came to Australia before he was born. Albert is one of 11 siblings (seven girls and four boys!). His father was a baker who worked in small local bakeries across the region until supermarket chains and box freezers squeezed out the market for local bakers. Albert recalled that things were tight in the family but, because this was the way things were, he never questioned or worried and instead focusued on the close knit ties of his family. The close connection Albert has with his siblings was apparent from the many walking tours that he has done all over the world with his family and the family biennal gathering that typically has over 100 family members gathered in the new year.

Albert told us that he was the first in his family to go to university, having gotten a scholarship to go to university in Sydney where he completed a degree in economics and a diploma of education. He also told us of his initial arrival in Sydney where he turned up with no accommodation organised and how he managed to make it through those first months in the big city with the football club being a major support base for him.

On completing his degree Albert was appointed at Randwick boys High school, but the big city eventually got to Albert and he and his wife came to Coolamon in 1981 where he was appointed to teach at the central school and they raised five children. 

Bondy thanked Albert for a most entertaining and interesting talk, presenting him with a kangaroo hide coin pouch as a token of thanks.  Because of the length of Albert's talk, the fine session and raffle were deferred for another day.

Meeting of March 4th


President Daryl welcomed 20 members, together with  guests Albert S, Barry L, Helen L  and Anne Baker.  Apologies from Bern, Anne, Garth and Lyn.

Dick gave a report on the catering last Tuesday at Delta Ag, which went off very well;  great rollup of members to help with the cooking.

Ian J gave a report on Clean-up Australia Day from last Sunday;  he commented that he and Garth made a good impact on the new bike track to Ganmain.

Advance Ganmain Committee will host the Festival of Small Halls on 10th April.

Polio PARADE - Riders from Wagga will arrive in Coolamon on Thursday, 7 March.  Three riders from Coolamon will depart for Junee on Friday morning.  Ian, Alex and Graham Collins will represent Coolamon.  The iron lung will also arrive in Coolamon on Thursday, and will spend several hours at the Coolamon Central School on Friday before departing for Junee.  The club voted to donate $2000 to Polio Plus; this will be matched 2:1 by the Gates Foundation, bringing our contribution to $6000.  Every bit helps!  Members are encouraged to purchase End Polio Now tee shirts and wear them on Friday.

Upcoming guest speakers: Albert Suidgeest (Monday, 11 March); Errol Sutherland (Monday, 18 March).

Wayne attended PETS conference in Young over the weekend and gave a brief account of the event.  Some of the more noteworthy sessions involved risk management and related issues that will become increasingly important as we go forward.  Wayne mentioned there is the possibility of a combined meeting with our club and the Narrandera club. Stay tuned for details.

Henk thanked Neil for standing in as Treasurer last week in his absence.  Subs are now overdue, so if you haven't paid, please pay soon to stay in the good graces of Rotary International (and the Treasurer!).

DG John spoke on planning for the district conference and reported that all is going, thanks in good part to Griffith Club.

Ted ran another lively fine session. The evening concluded with a meat raffle which was won by Leslie (who can no longer claim she never wins the raffle!).

Apologies from Ian, Myffy, Howard, Henk, John N, Anne and Lyn.

Mooney’s March will be held on Saturday, 16th March at 10 am to honour and commemorate the 57th birthday of Garry "Mooney" Armstrong and to raise funds for cancer research.

Wayne spoke on membership and the potential of corporate membership to encourage greater involvement with the community and perhaps draw in younger members to our club.

We have one or two new members wanting to join our great club; we look forward to inducting them soon.

Our next street raffle will be on Saturday 16th March outside the Coolamon newsagency.

Bingo roster:  Grahame will be updating the Bingo roster in next week or so;  if you know you can’t do it any particular month in the next year, please let him know, to avoid having to find replacements at the last minute. Dick tells us he is not available July /August as he’ll be off overseas.

Dave gave a brief talk on Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA) which will be held on Friday, March 29 with about 28 Coolamon Central School students going in the two school buses.

Paul gave a talk on Easter markets on April 20th and the need to hold the markets in Pieper Park (Coolamon) as UTDS is not available.   120 hot rodders are coming to Ganmain and are planning to attend the markets.

Sarah spoke on the Science & Engineering Challenge to be held on Thursday, March 7th at Mater Dei school.  Approximately 30 students in teams of four from CSC are planning to attend. The club has been asked to fund $390 to hire a bus from Allen's to transport students to Wagga, which was passed by the Board.

The End Polio Now bike relay is arriving in Coolamon on Thursday March 7; John will be bringing a vintage iron lung to Coolamon on Thursday night.

On Wednesday, March 6th the Wagga Wagga clubs will ride down Baylis Street to the WW City Council Chambers where they will be greeted by the Mayor at 10.00am.  The Mayor will then hand the baton on to the WW Cyclists who will take the baton to Coolamon on Thursday morning March 7th.

The iron lung will be in Coolamon on Friday morning, March 8th in a place to be nominated.  The iron lung will remain in the trailer as it's very heavy. 

The Coolamon cyclists depart for Junee at a time of their choice; Mayor John Seymour may want to send them off.

Ted ran another lively fine session. The evening concluded with a meat raffle (won by a very surprised Dick) and fellowship.

Meeting of 18 February 


President Daryl welcomed 22 members, together with  guests Leo & Marianne DeKroo, Mel & Eleanor Meyer, Mick & Gail O’Brien, Albert Suidgeest, Maureen H, Sharon M, Marilyn J, Anne B, Heather McK, Lexi F, Jan N, Barry L, Helen L, Sally F, Lorraine H, Russ Barrow, and Minnie Lewis.

Several diary items of note:

  • Neil announced that 40 people have signed up to come to the Peace Ceremony in Lions Park at 4.15 next Saturday, 23rd Feb.  Please let Neil know if you are planning to attend.

  • Catering on Tuesday morning, 26th Feb, at 8 am for Delta Ag breakfast; need about 5 members. Please let Dick know if you can help out.

  • PETS training will be held in Young on 2 & 3 March. Contrary to what was said at the meeting, PETS training is just for incoming presidents, not incoming board members.

  • Clean-up Australia Day on Sunday March 3, 9 am at Coolamon PO.

  • International Womens’ Day on Friday March 8 will be celebrated with a breakfast at the Old Convent, from 7 to 8.30am.  Guest Speaker is Heather Ward on the theme ‘Balance for Better’.


Daryl announced that Janice Menzies & her team (Doin' it for Drought-Affected Kids) distributed 270 school packages in Broken Hill.

Bingo Roster:  Grahame will be updating the Bingo roster in next week or so.  If you know you won't be able to work at bingo for any particular month in the next year, please let Grahame know to avoid having to find replacements at the last minute.

Guest Speaker Leo DeKroo gave us the second instalment of the most interesting story of his life in the music & radio industry. He started with a brief rehash of the story he gave us last time, of his life in the entertainment industry in the 1960’s, working with the likes of Brian Henderson, Col Joye, Judy Stone, Bee Gees, etc

He then spoke of another part of his life when he moved to Eumungerie, near Dubbo, in the early 1970’s.  This is where Leo met Marianne; they married in 1978.

Leo recounted some most interesting stories of experiences he had when he was working as a radio announcer on local radio station 2DU.  One story involved a phone call in the early hours from a guy who claimed he had just murdered someone & all the ramifications of that event;  far too much to recount here.

Henk thanked Leo for his talk and presented him with one of our kangaroo hide coin pouches.



The meeting concluded with a brief fine session, during which Sargent-At-Arms Ted managed to fine most of the guests in attendance--a bit harsh, don't you think, Ted?  The raffle was won by Sally.

Meeting of 21 January (first meeting of 2019)


President Daryl welcomed 19 members & guests to our first meeting for 2019.  Guests included Peta, Tim, Charlie & Jackson Wykes (our guest speaker), Heather McK, Jan N, Maree J, Lorraine H, Jan B, Claire M, Helen L, Anne B, Susan G & her guests from Germany, Oemer, Lotta & Marcel.  Apologies from Ian J, Henk H, John B, Myffy C, Bern M & Garth P.

President Daryl thanked all those who helped out on NYE with setting up the food van, cooking & cleanup,  plus selling raffle tickets, which brought in a great figure of $1100.

Daryl also mentioned there would be no meeting next Monday due to public holiday & asked if anyone would be interested in attending Wagga Rotary Club meeting on Thursday night, Jan 31 in lieu of our meeting.

Neil M spoke on the upcoming Peace Ceremony to be held on Saturday, February 23, at 4 to 4.30 followed by fellowship and dinner.  Please keep it in mind to support;  much planning has to be undertaken.

Our exchange student Jackson Wykes has returned from his year in Finland and gave a verbal & slide show on his experiences, mainly outside of school. He was hosted by three different families, most of whom had children of similar ages to him.  Jackson spent much of his time out of school hunting, mainly deer, birds & rabbits, which he got huge satisfaction from.  When the snow was around he also spent lots of time on the snow skiing, which he also loved, and playing ice hockey.  Jackson concluded by thanking our Rotary Club for sponsoring him for the experience of a lifetime.  Daryl thanked Jackson for his presentation and for representing our club (and Australia!) well during his stay overseas.  It was clear to those who saw Jackson speak before and after his stay in Finland that Jackson has matured significantly over the year and become a more confident speaker (with a more refined accent!).



The raffle was won by Howard's partner, Anne.

Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-24 – Special Holiday Edition


1 January, 2019


We hope you all had a wonderful silly season and were able to spend some quality time with near and dear ones.  We have some pics to share of our Christmas party and New Year's Eve festival, along with a letter from Jackson Wykes, our outbound Rotary Exchange student who will be returning from Finland later this month.  Best wishes for a healthful and productive new year!









 

Bring on winter in Finland


Jackson Wykes, exchange student sponsored by the Rotary Club of Coolamon currently living in Finland

Hello again everyone …….

I still cannot believe how fast the year is flying by. Who would think we only have three months to go! Writing this makes me think how I need to make the most of every moment that I have left of this exchange.

Not a great deal has happened the past three months. Summer holidays had to come to an end and I have returned to school. It was a bit strange to have to get into a routine again, like getting out of bed early, but it didn’t take me long to adjust. School has changed a lot since returning from the break. I am now in senior school and everyone is very studious and striving to do their best. I attend all my classes but probably distract others in the class as I know school is not counting towards anything for me. Recently my school had exams. I had to do the maths exam. I wouldn’t say I did great as it was all written in Finnish and my ability to read Finnish is not great and possibly I haven’t listened all that well in class!

I’m doing all the basic subjects at school. I do one Finnish class a week which is helping me with learning the language. This has been really hard as everyone just speaks English to me. I love spending time with my friends at school and in my free time.

One big change recently was when I moved to my last host family, the Ilvankas. They are a really nice family and have made me feel like part of their family. On my first night at their house we put an Australian flag up on the wall in the living room. My bedroom is so cool.

My host dad is Jari and my host mum is Terhi. I now have one older host brother, Eero and younger host brother, Arvo. The Ilvankas have decided to only speak Finnish to me, so hopefully I learn a bit before I come home. I am understanding most things they say, but speaking it is a different story.



 

Eero goes to university, so I don't see him too much. I’m very close with my younger host brother Arvo. I play in his ice hockey team and I go hunting with him almost every day. The Ilvankas go hunting all the time. Almost every weekend I hunt with my host father around where I live. It is a lot of fun and something that I am enjoying a lot.



I have been playing ice hockey a few times a week in Arvo’s team. I’m not very good, but I’m getting better. I really like ice hockey.

I have had one district camp in the last 3 months. At this camp we met in Tampere and I got to meet all the new exchange students in my district. Time has gone so fast that I can’t believe that was me 9 months ago! I have also had the opportunity to meet up with the rest of the new exchange students in Helsinki and Tampere.

I have also had a trip to the coast, a place called Pori. The beach is not the same as in Australia. It was not the best day, weather wise, but it was still very nice and a lot of fun.

I am really looking forward to the cold weather again. I loved winter in Urjala and I’m looking forward to the snow. I need to make the most of my time where there is snow in my backyard as it won’t be the same when I get back home.

Thanks for reading my report. With only 1 month left there is still so much to see and do.

Jackson Wykes

Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-23


Meeting of 10th December (last regular meeting of 2018)


President Daryl welcomed 24 members (almost a record) & guests Anne B, Lana Collins (trainee doctor working with Dr Amir for next 2 weeks), Susan G, Helen L & Barry L.

Daryl thanked those who helped with the catering at opening of the ambulance station.

Vale Roger Quine:  Roger passed away last Sunday and was a longstanding member of Junee Rotary club and a strong supporter of our club for many, many years. The funeral will be next Monday (17th Dec) at the Wagga Crematorium, commencing at 10:30 am.

Coolamon Rotary Christmas party this Saturday at the residence of Daryl & Jann Breust at 7 pm. The main course including salads will be provided by your hosts. Each couple are asked to bring a dessert or nibbles. The cost will be $15 per couple to cover cost of meats and salads, etc.

Bingo this Thursday; rostered on are Grahame, Ian J, Myffy & Garth. Please be there by 6:45 to help set up.

A roster sheet for NYE was passed around for volunteers to help out with catering, etc, on NYE. A copy will be distributed to members this week and again after Christmas as a reminder.

Paul gave a presentation on his recent trip to the US, where he was greeted with heavy snow storms, which is very unseasonal for November. He visited his daughter and her partner and other family members and had a weekend out deer hunting but didn’t see one; maybe they were pre-warned.

Ted H once again led a lively fine session. The evening concluded with a meat and port wine raffle, the first prize going to Lyn and second to Don.

Remaining presentation nights at local schools:

Coolamon Central: Thursday Dec 13,  - Daryl B

St.Michael's (Coolamon):  Thursday Dec 13 - Wayne & Helen       

Ardlethan: Tuesday Dec 18,  - Garth

Beckom: Friday Dec 14, - Howard & Ann

 

Official Opening of Coolamon Ambulance Station


Coolamon Rotary was on hand to cater to the hunger of the officials and residents who came out for the official opening of the recently constructed ambulance station in Coolamon.  Rotarian Henk Hulsman deserves special mention for his role in helping to bring the much-needed station to Coolamon.  The club provided the eats in addition to serving it up for the crowd.

Maureen Hulsman colour-coordinating nicely with the food van.
