This morning I joined the Traralgon Central club for an informal 3 km walk followed by breakfast at a local restaurant.It was a lovely experience, despite the fine, light rain.Past President, Maree spoke about a couple of their projects as we walked:* “Give a Damn; Give a Can”, which collects non-perishable food for those experiencing difficulties during the harsh winter;* Hostel near hospital: the club raised the funds to build several small units to support the families of patients (often with cancer or other chronic / terminal illness).Club members continue to maintain the units and yard, with one of the members heading there from breakfast.A very interesting and pleasant bunch.Cheers Jo

NYSF SPEECH: ROTARY MEETING 06/02/2018

 

Good Evening Rotarians of the Pine Rivers Rotary Club,

 

As you may know, my name is Joshua D’Souza and I am now a Year 12 student at St Benedict’s College. I would like to share with you my exciting experience in the annual National Youth Science Forum for 2018. NYSF Session A was a highly extensive 12-day program in our nation’s capital, attended by over 200 high-achieving and well-rounded Year 12 students. This program made a platform designed to provide a broader understanding of career pathways and interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics or STEM, for interested students. NYSF has empowered students to explore the vast horizons of the scientific world through interactive workshops, meet and learn from renowned research academics and professionals, and become inspired by the current and future developments in internationally recognised research facilities.

 

Pine Rivers assists with a Defibrillator at Dakabin High School

Our club was asked if we would contribute to the supply of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to Dakabin State High School.

As that school is one which we regularly support, we decided to research the project. We became aware that another Rotary club in our District was able to supply an AED for a cost much less than the school had been quoted. It was also clear that a suitable method of storing the unit would be needed, as well as ongoing maintenance. Our club offered to supply the AED and a metal storage box at the significantly reduced price, if that could be regarded as our input to the project.

This offer was accepted and the end result is an AED available at the school.

If other groups wish to purchase an AED for their community, please contact the Rotary Club of Pine Rivers or the Rotary Club of Kingaroy. We will be glad to help, and advise.

Ms Jo Ehrlich is our most recent club member, and she is on an 18 month tour of our great country in her camper van. Every now and again we hear from Jo as she travels around and meets up with Rotary clubs where she is visiting. Just recently she has spent some weeks in the Dapto area of southern New South Wales. The Rotary club there is similar to ours. They enjoy lots of fun and fellowship while doing good projects to assist the local community.
 
During this time she joined in a combined meeting of several Rotary clubs in the Woolongong and Shoalhaven area. On another occasion they visted Don's Farm, a rural hideaway for relaxation and fellowship. On another occasion the club met at a local retirement village.
