Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-38


President Daryl welcomed 17 members, together with guests Chez & Anne Weeden.  Apologies from Myffy, Sarah, Dave, Bern, Neil, Garth and Paul.

President Daryl thanked  all those who helped with catering at the Hooves & Hounds function at the showground last weekend.

Invitation from the Woden Rotary Club to their 50th Anniversary on Saturday May 25th.

Invitation to Temora Changeover dinner on June 22nd.

Reminder to incoming directors to attend District Learning Assembly on 26th May at Grenfell.

No objections from Crown Lands re our Food Van shed construction at showground, so construction should be able to get underway soon.

John N has asked to remind members about the following guidelines for attendance at dinner meetings:

  • If you are attending the meeting, no action required.
  • If you aren’t attending please advise me by midday of the meeting.
  • If you are bringing guest/guests, please advise me by midday of the meeting.
  • If you/your guest have a requirement for a special diet meal, advise me by midday of the meeting.
  • If your decision changes after midday, please advise Gilbert or Dianne at the restaurant direct.
  • Unacceptable messages e.g.- “I should be there”, “I hope to be there”, I will try to be there”, etc,  as Gilbert prepares the number of meals I advised and any meal ordered and not paid for costs Gilbert money which is highly unfair to him. Your cooperation is sought in this matter.

The raffle was won by Henk.
