MEMBERS OUT AND ABOUT


On Sunday night a few of us joined David and Cherie Benn on their property to burn the olive cuttings.  it was an event supported by the members of the Rotary Club of Wollundry.   David Been is a good friend of Coolamon Rotary.   The burning was followed by the Wagga Wagga Mens' Rugby Choir with two of our members in the  choir Garth Perkin and Don Dyce.  A good night of fellowship and money was raised for Riverina Blue Bell and do not be afraid to ask those close to you "Are You OK".

PP Barry Lillywhite and son Anton Green addressed a large gathering at our club last night.  Barry and Anton outlined the proposed establishment of a Cheese Factory in Coolamon.   There were 44 guests and members including visitors from Melbourne.  Speaking in support of the venture was Carol Druce from the June Licorice and Chocolate Factory.

Coolamon Cheese Company’s vision is to resurrect the original 1921 Coolamon Co-operative society building and house within it a specialised tourism, education and cheese production facility.


Cheese maker and Director Barry Lillywhite and Managing Director Anton Green join newly appointed Director Neil Druce of Junee Licorice and Chocolate factory in this exciting venture which will be a real boost to the local community and region as a whole.

Please would all members check the diary below as there have been some changes to the programme.

Next week is a partners night for the visit of District Governor David Kennedy.

Moo Poo Temora

Rotary Club of Temora.

Our "Moo Poo" working bee day was held on Saturday, much to the delight of many local gardeners! All funds raised go back into the community and other chosen charities. Thank you our Community Service Director, Michael Reagan, for organising another successful day and to all who assisted. Pictured are (L to R) Ellis Hartwig, Peter Glasgow, Kenny Love and Michael Reagan.

 

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE


The Dog

Winker

A man with a winking problem is applying for a position as a sales representative for a large firm. The interviewer looks over his papers and says, "This is phenomenal. You've graduated from the best schools; your recommendations are wonderful, and your experience is unparalleled. Normally, we'd hire you without a second thought. However, a sales representative has a highly visible position, and we're afraid that your constant winking will scare off potential customers. I'm sorry...we can't hire you."

"But wait," he said. "If I take two aspirin, I'll stop winking!"

"Really? Great! Show me!"

So the applicant reaches into his jacket pocket and begins pulling out all sorts of condoms: red condoms, blue condoms, ribbed condoms, flavored condoms; finally, at the bottom, he finds a packet of aspirin. He tears it open, swallows the pills, and stops winking.

"Well," said the interviewer, "that's all well and good, but this is a respectable company, and we will not have our employees womanizing all over the country!"

"Womanizing? What do you mean? I'm a happily married man!"

"Well then, how do you explain all these condoms?"

"Oh, that," he sighed. "Have you ever walked into a pharmacy, winking, and asked for aspirin?"

ROTARY INFORMATION

ROTARY PEACE CENTERS SHAPE HUNDREDS OF CAREERS IN PEACE AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION

With bloody conflicts raging in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and parts of Central Africa, the message of nonviolence and reconciliation that nations worldwide will observe on 21 September demands more urgent and collective attention.

In 2001 the United Nations designated the September date as an annual International Day of World Peace "to be observed as a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence" according to a General Assembly resolution.

The day's devotion to peace connects closely with what Rotary members have been fostering since The Rotary Foundation's mission to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace, was proclaimed in 1917.

MOUNT KENYA 2015 ANZAC DAY CLIMB


This will be a permanent section for the next 12 months in our weekly bulletin and I will update stories to this article as and when we get them.   The Australian Commonwealth Department of Veterans Affairs have approved our application to be part of the Centenary for ANZAC and we are allowed to use the logo below with some rules on it's use:



The Mount Kenya 2015 web site can be found here on clicking the banner below:





Planning is well under way now and we are getting various members of the climb, the safari and our supporters working on ways of fund raising for the adventure.  One idea is for a Rockathon at The Rock.  An idea given to me by the late Bill Inness of our club.  We are also looking at crowd funding via the Internet.

One of the three beneficiaries is our Orphan Rescue Kits where we sponsor girls and boys who are vulnerable and at risk into High School and hopefully beyond to University.  One such recipient is Tracy Monica Ochieng from the Mathare area of Nairobi.  Tracy is now in a High School in Kisumu and is doing very well:

FOOT NOTE


MONDAY 22nd. SEPTEMBER INTERNATIONAL PEACE DAY


RI

We have a wonderful opportunity to work with Roots and Shoots and Dr Dame Jane Goodall in partnership with the Oloimugi Traditional Maasai Eco-village providing a hand up for education, basic literacy and wild life conservation.  A great way for Rotary to promote peace, good will and mutual understanding of culture.  More news as we develop this project further.  It started with a water tank, a lap top computer and a web site.  It is driven by one Maasai Moran Armicus Mayan Olesenteria who is passionate about his people and the conservation of the wild life in his area of the Laikipia Plateau, North of Mount Kenya.

Roots and Shoots Visit 5

Message from Armicus Mayan above:

"I am happy to be connected with the UN ambassador of peace, Dr. Jane Goodall in my village Oloimugi traditional Maasai ecovillage, where we are partnering with her organization Roots and Shoots Kenya. I believe that much positive is yet to follow and her input will actually transform my Maasai community.

Happy International Peace Day to all of you.  Let us live together in love, peace, harmony and unity. Let us embrace each other and help those who are disadvantaged in life since peace is not only the absence of war but the presence of retrogressive ailments like poverty, drought/famine and diseases........"

Jane Goodall
