Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1819-40


President Daryl welcomed a small group of 14 members on Monday with members enjoying a delicious meal of roast pork or lamb. Numerous apologies were given. 

Points of discussion for the evening were:

  • The Red Shield appeal last Saturday outside the FoodWorks raised $868.50. Unfortunately, the cold weather may have kept some people at home as the takings were not as high as on previous occasions. 
  • Reminder that the changeover dinner is the 1st of July. Cost will be $40.00 per head.
  • The Up To Date art show made a request from the club to sponsor a category in the show. A $350 prize was agreed upon.
  • The Ganmain pony club is holding a camp on the 15-16th of June to teach riders skills such as camp drafting. Professional riders are coming down to train approximately 20 young club members and the Pony club asked if Rotary could sponsor the event. Given that insurance cost are high as is feed it was agreed that Rotary would support the camp as many clubs over the district have been forced to fold due to rising cost and it would be a shame to lose a youth club in our local area.
  • Our grant application to the District 9700 Drought Relief program in support of the Small Halls concert recently held in Gaiman Hall has apparently been approved. Just waiting on final sign off before we see the $5000.
  • The paperwork for the grant for construction of the shed for the food van has been completed, so the funds should be in our account soon.
