Activities Juy 2012

  • Received thankyou letters from Shelter Box Australia, Rotary health and Rotary PolioHealth
  • Oberon Correctional Facility had accepted the invitation to repair the wishing well on Oberon Common
  • Brenda provided very funny and enjoyable presentation of her favourite collection of u-tube classics – the favourite was the vacuum cleaner “instant weight loss” method
  • Malcolm confirmed that he and Beryl would attend the Oberon Uniting Church meeting on 14 July 2012 to hear about an East Maitland Rotary Project in PNG.
  • Nepalese Friendship Project – A number of Rotary Clubs throughout District 9700 have donated funds and provided or promised working parties to support this RAWCS project. Julie present a report that was on the District 9700 website about where the funds were used. Malcolm added that he had heard that the Oberon RC funds had been used to purchase a dental chair.
  • Malcolm thanked Kevin McGrath for his 25 years service to Rotary Oberon and with particular thanks to Stella for years of excellent catering hospitality. Kevin gave a humorous and warm response. Kevin was presented with a photographic montage of his history within the club.
  • Suzanne advised that ROMAC has sent and receipt and acknowledgement of the $1,000 donated to their fund along with a couple of news letters about ROMAC’s work.
  • John Philp gave us a potted history of his life to date. He has seen and experienced many things in his travels and taken part in a number of careers in one life time. It made for a very interesting speech – thank you John.
  • Tina Philp became a new member of Rotary
  • Tina gave her 2 minute presentation (longer than 2 mins, but Tina had the club so enthralled that nobody wanted her to stop!) Tina was born in Guernsey and she lived in a house that had been in the family since 1610! We learned what they did there as children (when Tina was 16 the family migrated to NZ). What the locals did during the war – Guernsey was occupied by the Germans, which included hiding the farm animals in caves and burying the family silver! There was only one rule for the children – be home by dark!
