Coolamon Rotary Bulletin #2021-37



Week of 31st May

This week’s meeting was primarily a social meeting, with Monday being the 5th Monday of the month (when we try to mix it up a bit).  The club self-catered the dinner; thanks to the members who stepped up and prepared the food and cleaned up afterward.  Fifteen members showed up and enjoyed a good meal and fellowship, plus a bit of light Rotary business (some people just can’t let go!).  The evening concluded with an entertaining fines session led by fill-in Sergeant-at-Arms Dick, who found a way to fine nearly all in attendance, as thin as the reason might have been (some were fined because of notable good things they had done during the week!) and our weekly raffle, which was won by Neil.

Answer to last week’s puzzler: Queue

This week’s puzzler: Imagine you are in a dark room. How do you get out?





There are around 90 different Rotary Fellowships that you can join with like minded people from around the world.

One that some members may like is the Beers Rotarians Enjoy Worldwide Fellowship.

Beers Rotarians Enjoy Worldwide (BREW) Fellowship is one of the newest officially recognized Rotary fellowships. The fellowship was created for Rotarians around the worlds who love to drink and make beer.

BREW was started and organized in 2013 by Past District 5160 Governor Steve Lack, a member of the Rotary Club of Pleasant Hill, California, USA; Moses Aryee, Past President of the Rotary Club of Accra-West, Ghana; and Past District 5440 Governor Martin Limbird of the Rotary Club of Fort Collins, Colorado, USA.

The primary goal of BREW is to create the largest fellowship in Rotary: an international community of Rotarians who share a love of beer. Another goal is to support efforts and projects to bring clean water to those in thirst since water is the primary ingredient in beer.

Follow them on their web site below:
