Last night we welcomed our newest member, Lachlan Clarke, who has transferred to us from the Rotary Club of Greater Springfield.
Lachlan was welcomed into our club by President Steve Bennett.
Last night’s guest speaker was Frank Sauter, previously with the Rotary Club of Oxley, who spoke to us about his recent journey as a member of a Rotary Donations In Kind team, delivering donated goods to schools and medical practices in Timor-Leste.
Frank spoke with passion about the trip, the island and the gratitude of the people when receiving the 40 foot shipping container full of much needed supplies such as desks, chairs, computers and microscopes, to name a few, for the schools as well as beds and linen etc, for the medical teams.
To round off a very busy meeting, President Steve Bennett presented our Rotary Exchange Student, Nicolai Borup his club shirt. Next week, on August 6th, Nicolai will be our guest speaker and will share a little of his life in Denmark.
