Coolamon Rotary News Bulletin #12



 

Easter Weekend 2nd April 2018


Due to the Easter weekend there was no meeting this week. However Rotary was still active and out and about in Coolamon over the Weekend with the Easter markets and participating in the Art Wars Competition for the Up to Date store.

Below are just some of the good times from Easter Saturday. Big thanks to John who took the photos.



The Rotary team busy at work painting their totem poles in the Art Wars competition



Sarah and Anne were busy at work on the door of the Up to Date store collecting entry donations and selling Raffle tickets.



Dick had a big job to do auctioning of the totem poles painted in the Art Wars to raise money for the Up to date Store



Our valiant artist with their complete totem poles.



And yes, Rotary was out in force selling delicious bacon and egg burgers throughout the morning. A big thanks to those who maned the grill.



The kids had a fantastic Easter Saturday painting their Totem poles

Quote of the Week


 

(still open from last week)

Who said this? 

"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who  keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young "

Last week’s quote of the week was attributed to Brian Wilson and John G was the first with correct answer

April  is Maternal and Child Health Month





At least 7 million children under the age of five die each year due to malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation. To help reduce this rate, Rotary International provide immunizations and antibiotics to babies, improve access to essential medical services, and support trained health care providers for mothers and their children. Their projects ensure sustainability by empowering the local community to take ownership of health care training programs.
