Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #1920-21

 Dinner Meeting – December 9th – Last meeting of 2019

President Wayne welcomed 18 members to our last meeting of 2019.

Apologies from Don, Daryl, Sarah, Ian, Bern, Garth, Leslie and Marie-Anne.


  • Letters from schools thanking us for donations towards presentation nights
  • Letter from Council rejecting our proposal to post signs advertising service clubs at the entrances to Coolamon. It appears that Council interpreted our request as a promotion for Rotary, as opposed to promoting all service clubs wanting to be included.  The proposal will be reworked and clarified for re-submission in the new year.


  • Monday, Feb 10, 2020 – Wykes family visiting our Club meeting
  • Saturday, April 4 – Family biking event in Coolamon. Stay tuned for details!
