Second meeting of the year, we had no particular program set for the night.
Visits from past resident and Rotarian Ian McCray and CEO of the Temora Aviation Museum and Campbelltown Rotarian Murray Kear increased the opportunity for fellowship so after another delicious meal from the kitchens of the Temora Ex Services Memorial Club and having minimal reports from Directors other than advising members of our usual commitment at the Exhibition Day of the Rural Museum on the 10th of March, we were done.
While it is the second month of the year the club has had it’s usual break over the festive season and held a few purely social evenings at the local Indian Restaurant and members homes.
Normal Club meetings resume tomorrow at the Temora Ex-Services Club in the Narraburra Room (immediately on the right as you enter) from 6:30 for a 7 PM start.
If you are interested in attending which you are more than welcome to do please ring Fritsch Bros Electrical on 6977 1391 to get a meal set ($20 includes lucky door ticket) or order at the club from the bistro menu.
In the first meeting of the new Rotary year with President Rob Oliver at the helm we addressed an issue that is unfortunately all to close to our hearts currently.
Depression, social resilience, grief management and understanding have been topics well in the Clubs view in the later half of Past President Helen Maxwell’s year. Deaths have rocked the club and had many members searching to cope with the grief.
Dr Evans spoke tonight and gave hope, direction and understanding of these difficult processes we have been struggling with
Monday 19th June saw the assembled members, partners and guests meet at the Temora Ex Services Memorial Club to enjoy friendship and the common passion of Rotary, fellowship with new people.
Well new to us. Ex Temora Councillor and local identity Peter Speirs had some very interesting guests tonight.
50 years ago a much younger Peter was in the first Rotary Group Study Exchange to leave our shores and travel to the United States of America, in particular for him Woodward Nth Oklahoma and there to meet the Dauphin family and live with them. Friendship was born from this meeting that has flourished for the decades in between and while visits have occurred to mark the anniversary Little Lisa (well i guess she’s grown up a bit to) and her two daughters Morgan a school teacher like her Mum and Mallory studying agriculture communications came to visit Temora and us.
