Coolamon Rotary News Bulletin #1617-26

(There was no bulletin published last week, so this issue is a two-fer)


Week of 13 February

This week’s meeting featured a presentation by Trevor Jose, CEO of the Coolamon Sport & Rec Club.  Trevor gave us an update on the current state of affairs of the Sport & Rec Club as they attempt to dig their way out of a rather large debt accumulated over a number of years. The prospects for the long-term recovery of the club look good, based on the serious efforts the club is making to contain costs and pay off debts.  John Nulty thanked Trevor, and presented him with a kangaroo-hide coin pouch in appreciation of a comprehensive and enlightening presentation.


Week of 20 February

This week’s meeting was a mini assembly/fellowship meeting. Planning for the telephone directory was the major item of discussion, along with motions that were passed at last week’s board meeting. The meeting concluded with a meat raffle and a fine session led by Sargeant-at-Arms Ted Hutcheon.



Pictured above is one of Wayne Lewis’s trucks loaded with hay donated by a local farmer and trucked to Dunedoo by Wayne to help cattle farmers in that area cope with the recent devastation caused by bush fires. The club has gotten behind Wayne, and has recommended that we reimburse Wayne for his generous gesture. Good on ya, Wayne!


On the lighter side

You know you’re old when…

In a hostage situation you’re likely to be released first.

You and your teeth don’t sleep together.

People call at 9 p.m. and ask, “Did I wake you?”

You begin every other sentence with, “Nowadays…”

The clothes you’ve put away until they come back in style… come back in style.

Things you buy now won’t wear out.

There’s nothing left to learn the hard way.

“Getting a little action” means you don’t need to take a laxative.

When getting lucky means you find your car in the parking lot.

When happy hour is a nap.

When you realize that caution is the only thing you care to exercise.

You’re 17 around the neck, 42 around the waist, 94 around the golf course.

When you’re told to act your own age, and you die.
