Dr Eryl Evans guest speaker Monday 10th July 2017

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

We have grown a little smaller over the last year.
President Rob thanks Dr Evans and we discover we need a taller banner!
That works, a shorter President!

 

Second last meeting for the Rotary Year

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.
