Coolamon Rotary Bulletin for December 14th 2023



Happy Christmas to all our members, partners and friends and a happy and prosperous 2024!

Our Rotary club had their annual Christmas party at President John Bond’s home in Coolamon.  We had 38 in attendance and that included the majority of our members present with their partners.

Roselee and John Bond were our generous hosts this year at their brand new home.

The food was wonderful and plenty there to feed all.  Thank you to all who brought a salad or a sweet to compliment the trays of chicken, ham and silverside beef.  A special thanks go to Henk Hulsman for organising the food for the evening.

All in all a wonderful time of reflection and friendship was had over the evening.  To all those who helped wash up the dishes and tidy up the home a special thanks.

Here are a few pics from the party:
