  • Page 2 PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Hello Everyone, This is a very exciting time for me, this being my first message to all of you (other than at Changeover). The situation is still feeling a little surreal to me but I’m sure it will start to feel real…very soon!!!!! Before we go any further I would really like to thank PP Penny for the great job she has done as President over the past 12 months. She has worked really hard and has been an inspiration to me and I would suspect, to many of you too. She will certainly be a hard act to follow. I hope you all enjoyed yourself at Changeover Night. I had a wonderful time in spite of my nervousness, and would like to thank all those who helped to make it the successful evening that it was. These include Alan Jones, Wilf Van Emmerik; Gordon Scoble; and of course Penny Hill, who brought it all together so well on the night. You should all pat yourselves on the back for the fantastic job that you did. The Dural Country Club is a lovely venue and the room was just perfect for our function. All in all a great night. On Monday night, the Board will be launching the new Club Plan. We listened to the ideas that were put forward in the survey that many of you completed earlier in the year and have been planning an exciting year ahead with which I’m sure that you will all be very happy. I’m looking forward to seeing you all there at my first meeting as President. Warm regards, President Bobby Redman Summary of Last Meeting – PP Graeme Rohan TREASURER First installment of $150.00 FOR Annual Dues is due on July 1.

  • Page 3 VOCATIONAL WHAT AM I UP TO NOW BOBBY REDMOND Started in Banking as a teenager, then took up Nurse training and became a registered nurse, got married and then joined the fashion industry as a buyer. Became a single mother and worked various jobs in the hospitality industry to fit the timetable of child raising. Remarried and immigrated to Australia where I took up a clerical job with Berger Paints in the Automotive Paints division. This led to ever increasing responsibility with Berger and then with Repco, rising to State Manager. The call for a higher education beckoned and I enrolled at University achieving high standards and a degree in Psychology. I then worked with children with various psychological problems and ultimately with my current employer Independent Disability Services. GUEST SPEAKERS - JASMINE CALLEJA & ANISKA BEADON IDS. IDS established 1979, a NFP value based organisation with over 400 Serrvice users employing 120 staff and covering the Hills District and out to Windsor and Penrith. Targeted Clients all persons with a disability We provide a service which encompasses all facets of care from Case Management thru to Accommodation and respite. We are currently launching a new project called “Umbrella” which is aimed at providing a purpose build premise to provide emergency response support for people with a disability who find themselves in crises and are unable to cope. Loss of parent is the single largest trauma faced. This building will provide facilities to enable Assessment, Therapy, Intervention areas and offer advanced care. It is a large project requiring funding in excess of $1,500,000.00 and we are seeking assistance from Business and community and Rotary to achieve our aim. Currently there are 800 individuals registered on ADHC’s “Immediate need Register” A Dinner dance has been organized for July 20 at Blacktown Leagues Club and we hope many Rotarians will attend.

  • Page 6 Rotary’s role in India’s success against polio draws global media coverage The role played by Rotary International in helping India stop transmission of the wild poliovirus generated strong media coverage worldwide. News of India’s milestone achievement of going one year without polio in January garnered more than 100 media placements that featured Rotary, representing nearly 250 million online visitors and a print circulation of over 10 million readers. Nearly 95 percent of the coverage of the milestone – by the Associated Press, The Economist, Financial Times, New York Times, Reuters, and other major media – mentioned Rotary’s leading role in the achievement. In February, the BBC featured a news story that highlighted Rotary’s role in India. The BBC also carried several news stories, blog posts, and Twitter feeds related to Rotarians participating in the country’s National Immunization Days. India’s removal from the list of polio-endemic countries by the World Health Organzation was announced at Polio Summit 2012 by Ghulam Nabi Azad, the country’s minister of Health and Family Welfare. Anticipating India’s milestone achievement, the RI Communications Group launched an aggressive communications campaign to increase understanding of Rotary’s leadership role in the country’s success against polio and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, working with the GPEI partners, Rotary public image coordinators, and others.

They planned to stay at the very same hotel where theyClub Calendar spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail. Meanwhile.....somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husbands funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted. The widows son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read: To: My Loving Wife Subject: Ive Arrived Date: 16 May 2003 Note: Apologies must be in to PP Graeme I know youre surprised to hear from me.
