Coolamon Rotary News Bulletin #17-18-7



What is the Four-Way Test to you and your club? The Four-Way Test is one of the most powerful guides to ethical behavior in existence. As Rotarians, we have a responsibility to speak the truth, to do our best in all situations, to be fair, build friendships and goodwill.

The test is as relevant today as it was 75 years ago, because the issues of morality and ethical behavior that existed then still exist today, therefore we should continuously apply this to our daily lives.

FOOTNOTE






Hoopsnakes are dangerous snakes native to Australia. Commonly found in bushland and the outback, Hoopsnakes are NOT lethal, but are still dangerous when confronted. Although usually quite timid animals, Hoopsnakes have been known to chase down and attack animals and humans during their breeding period. If bitten by the Hoopsnake, headaches, vomiting, and temporary blindness and paralysis may occur.

What makes the Hoopsnake different from other snakes in the world is their ability to to roll, in a way much like a wheel or hula-hoop (hence the name, Hoopsnake). They bite onto their tail, which is very thick and callused, and use their strengthened spines to roll into a circular shape and roll around. Using this method, the Hoopsnake can reach up to 60km/h.

Although lots is known about the Hoopsnakes, they are not not very well known as they should be. They were never featured on any of Steve Irwin's television programs or his movies, which is quite disappointing. The Hoopsnake is a beautiful creature which deserves to be known throughout the world.

There is no definite breeding season with Hoopsnakes, as they breed year round. A female Hoopsnake will find a new mate every year. Couples only breed once a year, with the female laying around 10 to 15 eggs in a batch. On average, only 8 survive, due to the Hoopsnake being the main food source of eagles and hawks.

Hoopsnakes feed on small marsupials such as biblies, mice, rats and quolls. Baby hoopsnakes often eat crickets and other small insects. Hoopsnakes live around 8 years, and in their life time have been known to grow up to 1.5 metres long. They range from a light, olive green to a darker black in colour, depending on the age. This is why it is extremely difficult to identify the Hoopsnake, because the colours are so different.



SEE YOU NEXT WEEK

Week of 14 August


 

Tonight we had the pleasure of the company of 3 members from the Wollundry Rotary Club.  Ably led by PP Phil McIntosh and supported by PP David Byfield and current Wollundry President Paul Milde.

Attendance present 16 Rotarians and 5 guests including Barry Lillywhite, Trevor Kiss and the three visiting Rotarains from Wollundry.

We had another good meeting with plenty of banter and some serious Rotary work. Our guest speaker PP Phil McIntosh from Wollundry and the prime mover for this amazing project gave a detailed account of the 2016 Gears & Beers run.



Phil went on to congratulate our club and community for the assistance in last year's event and invited us to support the run on Sunday October 1st. Phil reminded us that daylight saving actually starts on the day of the event. We are responsible for the Dirty 130 and the 105km ride.

RAPHA are again the major sponsors with some wonderful clothing. RAPHA are an international cycle company and are seen in Tokyo, Rome, Paris, Sydney and Melbourne. Photos of last years Gears & Beers have gone around the world.



The help on the day. for 2017 is very popular with the Dirty 130 being sold out. As always Wollundry will share the proceeds with those who help on the day.

Phil said that around 850 riders will come to Coolamon on the day. So we need to have as many volunteers to make this a successful event.



Last year the event attracted over 1100 riders and 4000 people into the festival this year our target is 1500 plus riders and 4500 people to the festival. We are keen to embrace the Culture of the craft of Brewing Beers and Ciders as well as coffee, this combined with a community cycling event, a long weekend Sunday, a location right at the top of Wagga Wagga’s main street and a club that is prepared to give of its time to raise funds for great causes, I think we are onto a winner of an event.

Rides range from 9km (for the kids and mums and dads), 30km, 50km road, 50km filthy fifty (dirt roads), 105km road, and the Rapha Dirty 130.

Followed by the craft Beer and Cider festival with some of the country's best independent craft brewers.

Wollundry Thank you Dinner who Helped Cambodia

HELP Cambodia is a local charity run by Wagga people, Wollundry Rotary Club are supporting this dinner and are doing great work in Cambodia helping families and especially kids with health and education.

We have recently built a new school in a desperately poor area of Phnom Penh and we also received RAWCS status for this project, so we decided to have a dinner to celebrate and say thanks to our supporters.

The dinner is not a "fund raiser". There are no auctions or raffles, in fact we are giving away some great prizes (Weber BBQ, Family Photo Shoot, 2 tickets to Wicked and a 10 visit yoga pass) and of course we will be enjoying the great food and atmosphere at the Magpies Nest.

"Bernadette; President Paul Weston, the members and partners of the Rotary Club of Coolamon extend our sincere condolences to you and your family on the passing of your husband Russell.  We are indebted to you for all the hard work that you have put in for our community.  Please be assured that we are all thinking of you and your family at this time.  Russell was a good man and those that came to know him will miss his humour and love of all things footy."

Ann and Howard are renovating the Old Convent in Coolamon and it will become a function centre.  Welcome to Coolamon and Coolamon Rotary Club Howard and Ann.

Thursday August 3rd saw the visit of the Wagga Men's Rugby Choir and Murrumbidgee Magic, it was a wonderful night of good music thank you to the organisers especially Don Dyce.  Net proceeds for Mental Health as around $630.

 







 

Week of 7 August


Tonight we had the pleasure of the company of 3 students from The Riverina Anglican College, namely Mikaela Foster, Mitchell Foster and Henry Yates with Teacher and Mother to two of the students present, Fiona Foster.  They came to talk on their trip along the Kokoda Track recently.

Attendance present 12 Rotarians and 8 guests including Helen Lewis, Sally Farmer and Barry Lillywhite.  Several apologies due to the flu including our President Paul Weston. President Elect Daryl Breust took the Chair and we had an excellent meeting.

 



The Kokoda Trail was a path that linked Ower's Corner and the small village of Wairopi on the northern side of the Owen Stanley mountain range.

Its name was derived from the village of Kokoda on the southern side of the main range, the site of the only airfield between Port Moresby and the north coast.

The Japanese saw the Kokoda Trail as a means by which to capture Port Moresby overland.

Mikaela and Henry gave the presentation of this journey of 9 days following the Kokoda Track.  It was a tough one for them and they experienced some harsh conditions.  Mikaela and Henry took turns explaining the various highlights of the trek.

Both students were very respectful of the part the Diggers who defended Port Moresby and hence the gateway to Australia for the Japanese Army.   They also showed great respect for their porters and the villagers they met along the way.  There were some very emotional times and the students had their own Dawn Service at Isurava.




They ended their visit to Papua New Guinea at the war cemetery at Bomana



Here are some of their photos please click on the thumbnails:





President Elect Daryl thanked the team from TRAC and as Daryl has trekked Kokoda the talk brought back many memories for Daryl.  L-R Henry Yates, PE Daryl Breust, Mikaela Foster, Mitchell Foster and Fiona Foster.

Coolamon Rotary News Bulletin #17-18-4

Week of 31 July


This week's meeting started of with President Paul informing us of the meetings he has recently attended. Paul attended the Community Drug Action Team meeting last week, where it was decided to put an application together to form a local Local Drug Action Team taking in Coolamon, West Wyalong and Temora.  At the Group 5 Presidents meeting,  which took place on Sunday, a number of issues of relevance to Rotary clubs in our area, including planning for  peace celebrations in September and  also in April, 2018 in Wagga Wagga and Coolamon, were discussed. Plans are under way for some joint activities between the clubs in Junee and Coolamon.

Rotary is  aiming for each club to plant 10 trees per member this year; Grahame volunteered to be the club's Tree Co-ordinator. Ian Jennings has a plan to develop a bike trail between Coolamon and Ganmain, which will be an ideal community project and an excellent opportunity for trees to be planted.

The Choirs at the Club performance for Thursday night looks like it will be well supported; thank you to everyone who put their names down to help with setting up and serving the finger food.

Paul presented Neil and Myffy with their director's pins since they were unable to attend the changeover, where the new board was introduced.

Myffy proudly informed us that The Coolamon Community Chronicle celebrated its 1st birthday with a coloured front and back page and 24 pages of reading in the Chronicle. The newspaper is going well financially, which is very good to hear.

Henk informed the meeting that a copy of the phone book will be ready for proof reading this week and the books should be printed in about a month.

 

Christmas in July


Christmas in July was very well attended and featured a delicious Christmas dinner prepared by Gilbert. There was a lot of laughing and banter as the Yankee Christmas present exchange got underway. The gifts certainly made for some interesting interaction amongst those present. Some gifts were highly sought after, especially the honey and pink scarf; the hungry shark was another story. I'm sure Christmas in July will be on the social calendar every year.



Introducing our Exchange Student!


Christmas in July was also the 1st event that Lucia Bohnsack,  Coolamon's Rotary exchange student, attended since arriving here on the weekend. Lucia introduced herself, telling us  it feels like she has come to a large town; her home town has a population of 300 people! Lucia has been shopping for school uniforms, something that is a bit different as she doesn't have to wear a uniform at home. Lucia presented the club with a banner from her host club in Germany, the Rotary Club of Einbeck Northheim, which Paul was happy to accept.

A Tribute to Sam Frobisher Owori by PRIP Jonathan Majiyagbe





When the announcement was made that Sam Frobisher Owori of the Rotary Club of Kampala, Uganda, was the choice of the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary  International 2018-19, it was sensational news!  It was greeted with rapturous applause, not only because he was a popular choice, but also because it had taken a long time to produce another President from the African continent.

'Small Sam' as he was affectionately called,  was the 2nd African to be Rotary International President in the 113 year history of the Organisation.   This is why his untimely death has been so painful, and shocking beyond belief, leaving all his many friends and well wishers around the world utterly devastated.

Sam Owori was a man of many parts:   a seasoned banker who served in his country, as well as at the African Development Bank in Abidjan.  He was also a Law graduate.

Sam was a gentleman of impeccable character, polite, humble and always wearing a winsome smile.  He was a good Christian and together with Norah, prayerfully encouraged me during my health challenges.

Our late President-elect had great plans for the future of Rotary in the areas of membership and extension.   As a member of the International Polio Plus Committee, Sam was dedicated to the eradication of Polio.

The many tributes that have appeared on social media and the fact that his country is organising a state funeral for him bear testimony to the life of a truly great leader and the esteem in which they hold him.

A part of the "Psalm of Life"  by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow best describes Sam and his impact on us.

'Tell me not, in mournful numbers


Life is but an empty dream


For the soul is dead that slumbers


And things are not what the seem


Lives of great men all remind us.


We can make our lives sublime


And, departing, leave behind us


Footprints on the sands of time


Our thoughts and prayers are with his loving wife, Norah and the entire Owori family. May his soul rest in Peace.


Jon Majiyagbe

Coolamon Rotary News Bulletin #17-18-3

Week of 24 July


This week's meeting featured a special event, the induction of our newest member, Howard Atkinson! Howard and his wife Ann moved to Coolamon fairly recently and have been making extensive renovations to the old convent, in which they reside and will be using to host weddings and other functions. Howard is originally from Finley, NSW, and recently moved to Coolamon to be near his wife's family after living for a number of years in Queensland. Howard was gracious enough to share his life story with us after the induction and will be an excellent addition to the club. Following Howard's presentation, Professor Paul quizzed those present on some acronyms we often see but may not know; we won't reveal how many answered the questions correctly, but you might want to have a crack at these yourself and see if you know what these acronyms stand for: NAIDOC, RADAR and TWAIN (no fair using Goggle!). John Bond won an extra raffle ticket for correctly identifying the words that make up RADAR, which is all the boost he needed to eventually win the raffle. Ted led an entertaining fine session, as usual, but for some reason has the mistaken impression that President Paul was responsible for the cold bug that has stricken most of the members of the club since our changeover.



 

Don't forget about Christmas in July!


Next week's meeting (31 July) will be another meeting not to miss, when the club hosts its first Christmas in July in recent memory. Diane and Gilbert will be serving up a Christmas feast of roast ham and turkey with all the trimmings and, if rumour is correct, Christmas pudding for desert. The cost will be only $23 pp, and all are asked to bring a wrapped gift to the amount of no more than $10 (or you can bring a homemade treasure). The gifts will be distributed via a Yankee Swap (see Wikipedia for a description). Partners are certainly welcome for this primarily social event.  We will also introduce our Rotary exchange student from Germany, Lucia Bohnsack, on the night.  Please be there!

 

And Choirs at the Club!






As if we didn't have enough going on next week, don't forget about Choirs at the Club, to be held at the Coolamon Sport & Rec Club on Thursday, 3 August.  This special event will feature two fabulous choirs from Wagga Wagga, the Wagga Men's Rugby Choir and Murrumbidgee Magic, a female choir from Wagga.  The festivities will kick off at 7:00 f0r 7:30 pm, and the $15 admission will include finger food as well as the choir performances.  RSVP by 31 July to Don Dyce (0427 981 456) or Dick Jennings (0427 273 074).  All proceeds will benefit mental health education.
