Last Tuesday’s speaker was Simon McNamara from YourSide , a carers and health support organisation based in Chatswood.  Simon is Director of Customer Care for YourSide and he informed us on the great work being achieved in the community through their support programs. YourSide was a beneficiary of funds raised through our club’s involvement in The World Festival of Magic.


On the weekend of 30/31 March six members of the club attended District 9685 conference in Newcastle.  You will have seen in last week’s bulletin a photo of our gnome dressed up as a construction worker …… sad to say that he didn’t appear in the winner’s circle due to the extremely high standard of other club’s entries!


However, you will be very pleased to hear that our club was placed equal first out of the 58 clubs at the conference in the best dressed competition at Saturday’s evening dinner / dance.  Our team of six did a great job appearing as The Village People and we had even prepared to sing their hit song YMCA …… but perhaps luckily we were not called upon to do so!  My thanks go to Moira , Cathie , Ken , Allen and Sue for their assistance on the night.


On Tuesday , 9 April our speaker will be Professor Tim Roberts on the subject “Palm Oil , Orangutans and a Sustainable Future for Borneo “
