Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-35


President Daryl welcomed 17 members and 2 guest to a night of fellowship and a delicious meal for the evening.

Points of discussion for the evening included

  • Redgrave tennis club sent a letter of thank you to the club for having contributed half the cost for a defibrillator  for the club.
  • New Australian and Rotary flags have been printed and picked up ready to be flown in Lions Park. A motion was put forward and carried to pay for the cost of the flags.  
  • Reminder to all members that the change over dinner will be Monday the 1st July. Please be sure to save the date.
  • The Small Halls performance was Wednesday night in Ganmain  – we hope all had great evening of music and fellowship. 
  • Myffy passed around a card for Beth Batcheldor at Coolamon Central school who has been instrumental in helping to get the Coolamon Community Chronicle assembled each month. Myffy presented the card to Beth at the morning tea the school held for her.  The new teacher replacing Beth, Rebecca Lowe, has indicated that she will continue to support the Chronicle at the school, but help is still required, particularly over the school breaks when the students are on holiday. Helpers will not be expected to run the paper, but assistance with jobs would be greatly appreciated by the Chronicle team.  
  • The harness racing club has asked the club to run the food van on ANZAC Day and on the 5th May – Hooves and Hounds Day. A roster went around asking for people to staff the van in 2 three-man shifts for ANZAC Day.
  • Grahame is having a slow recovery from his knee surgery. We wish him well and hope to have him back on the bulletin team when he is feeling better.
  • The Coolamon Central School had the Farwest bike riders come and visit the school last week. The students represented the school well and made the evening news on Monday evening.

The evening closed with a clever fine session by Sergeant-At-Arms Ted and a meat raffle, which was won by someone (we’ll see how many people read the bulletin!).
