Carole Maxwell persuaded Colin McCulloch to give a brief outline of his recent angioplasty to overcome claudication in his legs.
The door prize was won by Jacqui Edwards and Alan Morcombe won the wine but couldn’t find the joker.
Meeting April 22nd
Acting President, George Lewkowski, welcomed all members and special guests: John and Melodie Kevan and David Whiteman.
George announced that:
· Gillian Baker is organizing a movie day on Sunday, June 9th (see details under)
· There will be no meeting at RFGC next week and members are invited to complete the attendance sheet for the Fremantle Ports meeting to which we are invited.
Gail McCulloch reported on Colin’s visit to Bunnings to discuss their decision to cut us to just two sausage sizzles per financial year. This came from a central company policy decision with which all stores must comply. They hold Rotary in the highest regard but can only give us two dates and offer us any cancellations. Colin asked for and was given the two most suitable dates: Saturday, October 19th and Sunday, December 1st.
We also retain Sunday, June 9th, that is in the current financial year.
Gillian Baker gave details of the movie day on June 9th and said that tickets were available from her and that she would arrange a best ticket-seller’s prize.
Gillian suggested a get together afterwards for a meal or picnic.
It was noted that the movie day clashed with our next sausage sizzle and that this would require some accommodation.
Tom Slater said that Max Anderson should be back for the DG’s visit.
Ron Day is seeking a laptop computer for his niece, who has breast cancer, lives in Margaret River, and needs a laptop to do courses.
The door prize was won by Mick Donnes. Keith Timmel won the wine but couldn’t find the elusive joker that is now worth over $800.
