Wednesday 22 January 2020
Meeting Number 2008  
The combined meeting with Torquay Club at Curlewis Mini Golf  last Monday was a terrific opportunity for fellowship between members of both Clubs, although the heavy  smoke haze meant some opted to stay indoors. Congratulations to the winners of the night! The dinner afterwards was also very enjoyable. Many thanks to Maggie Isom for her organization.
January in the Rotary Calendar is Vocational Service Month. Jordan Bryson will give us some insight into his life, work, hobbies and ambitions. This is an optional partner's night. Please respond to Whoozin or Rice Village.
The final meeting for January on Wednesday 29 January will be a business meeting, with time for committees to discuss plans for the New Year, discussion of issues affecting members and finally a Board Meeting. If you would like any issues to be included on the agenda for the night please contact either Secretary Peter or President John.
Last week members heard about the water project being planned for schools and villages in the Phillipines by Clubs in our District. One of the possible funding sources is from the Rotary Foundation through overseas grants - a contribution from our Clubs is matched by the Foundation. We have used this avenue to fund the projects in Nepal over the years.
Of course the other major project has been the work done to eradicate polio. On 21 August Nigeria marked three years without a case of wild poliovirus, which means the WHO African region could potentially be certified wild poliovirus-free next year. This will be a tremendous achievement, as the continent once suffered three quarters of all polio cases in the world. Rotary has contributed US$268 million to fight polio in Nigeria
Members from GWP attended the film night at Readings - Ride like a Girl - to assist in fundraising over $2000 for Rotary Foundation in September. All funds raised in our District come back to Australia after 3 years to enable Clubs to apply for District and Global grants to improve local and overseas communities.
