Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-36


President Daryl welcomed 19 members and 1 guest for the evening. There we a number of apologies for the night including one from Alex who is currently in the UK. Congratulations go to Alex on his recent engagement to Chez. We wish them the best of luck for the future.

Business for the evening included:

  • Bingo had a small turnout this month. Hopefully attendance will improve in the future.
  • The Gamain Pony Club is seeking donations for horseback archery school. The board will discuss this at the next board meeting.
  • The flags have arrived and are ready to be flown. They are single sided as a double sided flag is so heavy it will not fly well. Motion was passed to pay for the cost of the flags.
  • We are awaiting on final approval for the shed at the showground from the landowners before building can commence. Hopefully this week.
  • The Festival of Small Halls was great success last Tuesday with about 150 people in attendance including a number of families with children.  An added bonus was that Landline spent the whole day there filming the event and it is anticipated that the story will be aired in June.
  • Wagga Rotary is holding a book fair in the first week of May at the Wagga Showgrounds. So if you like to bury yourself in a good book there will more than enough there to choose from, so pay them a visit.
  • The Easter Markets is this Saturday. It is not expected to be an overly big event with about half a dozen stall holders because the markets need to be held in the park on the main street of Coolamon. There will not be any raffle and no food van so only a couple of people will be need to help out on the day, if you can help let Paul know. It will likely be a lovely day so if you can come along and show your support it will be most welcome.
