MEETING MONDAY MARCH 21st. 2016


Temora 09

Tonight we met at the Temora Aviation Museum as guests of the Temora Rotary Club.  Assistant Governor Tony Sinclair Group 4 in D9700 was our Chair.  Coolamon was well represented by 14 members and their partners including, Jan Nulty, Jann Breust, Chez Post, Susan Glassford, Helen Lewis, Sally Farmer and Bethany.

It was a social meeting in the Temora Aviation Museum.  Temora Rotary did a great job and around 92 people were present including the Temora Probus Club.  Chair AG Tony Sinclair welcomed the guests and while we were waiting for our dinner Temora RC conducted a spirited fines session followed by a raffle with many many prizes and Coolamon did well.

The guest speaker was Rtn. Kenny Love who was supported by his wife Rtn. Lisa Love.  Kenny is the CEO of the Temora Aviation Museum and Lisa is the Assistant Manager.  It was an excellent presentation of the recent Warbirds Downunder Show held last November over four days.  This is the biggest Warbirds Show in the Southern Hemisphere and is only held every 2 years.

The Temora Aviation Museum's President and the Founder is David Lowy, AM.  This is a spectacular museum and a wonderful asset for the Riverina and right on our doorstep.

Over 20,000 people visited the Warbirds Show last November and here is the web site for further information

ROTARY INFORMATION





INSTITUTE EQUIPS REGIONAL LEADERS TO ADVANCE ROTARY’S STORY



 RN_training_institute_0



Regional leaders from around the globe gathered at Rotary World Headquarters in Evanston in early March for training they will use to inspire members in their respective areas.

Several participants - most of whom will begin their term on 1 July - noted that the true measure of the institute's success will be how well the information they learned is transmitted to Rotary members.

"We have to realize that training doesn't stop at the district level," said Michael Boyer, a Rotary public image coordinator from Pismo Beach, California, USA. "We train people really well to be governors and club presidents but we have to realize that we also have to train our members in how to talk about Rotary."

PALM OIL FREE EASTER


 


Baby Orangutans 1

What's the best ingredient for an orangutan friendly Easter?  Certified Sustainable Palm Oil or palm oil free!

Unsustainable palm oil production is driving orangutans to extinction - it's the leading cause of deforestation and peatland destruction in Indonesia. It's also contributing to climate change. Choosing products that contain Certified Sustainable Palm Oil or are palm oil free this Easter means you are making a difference.

Relaxed labeling laws make it difficult to know which products contain Palm Oil, so we've put together a list of CSPO and Palm Oil free products to help you choose orangutan and climate friendly treats this Easter.

Palm Oil Free
-Woolworths: hot cross buns
-Whittaker's: all chocolate products
-Lindt & Sprungli: Lindt Excellence and Lindt Creation chocolate blocks
-Green & Black's: most chocolate blocks (except Butterscotch, Raisin & Hazelnut)
-Cadbury: Dairy Milk, Old Gold, Dream chocolate blocks
-Choceur, Just Organics, Moser-Roth (from Aldi): all chocolate products
-Haigh's: all chocolate products
-Carob Kitchen: all carob chocolate products

Palm Oil Free & Vegan
-Moo free: most chocolate products (except mint and orange flavoured)

CSPO
-Cadbury: chocolate products other than Dairy Milk, Old Gold, Dream chocolate blocks (e.g. filled chocolates like Caramello)
-Lindt & Sprungli – chocolate products other than Lindt Excellence and Lindt Creation chocolate blocks (e.g. filled chocolates like Lindt balls)

So remember, eat all the chocolate you like this Easter, just make sure it contains CSPO or is palm oil free.
