Tonight we had an action packed and very full program at our weekly meeting. Recently the Rotary Club of Brisbane Taylor Bridge sent a team to a remote region in Papua New Guinea. The P.N.G. Gulf Association sought our assistance with refurbishing a very rundown kitchen area and dining hall at the Malalaua School. In September 2018 our team visited the school to assess the scope of works. Through our partnership with the P.N.G. Gulf Association we were able to supply funding and expertise to see the project completed.
At the meeting, Zillah Carius, the President of the P.N.G. Gulf Association spoke of the difference this project had made, the gratitude of the students and staff, and she presented President Steve Bennett with a Certificate of Appreciation from her association.
We were also joined by Michael Reynolds from our local Oxley Men’s Shed.
Michael updated the meeting on the expansion of their premises, and the new activities they do.
Following Michael we welcomed Roger Crawfoot from Australian Rotary Health, the major recipient of our recent Trivia Night.
Presient Elect and organising committee chair, Mary-Ellen Nielsen, presents Roger with a cheque for $3500 to help with Mental Health Research.
Also in attendance were one of our very generous event sponsors.
Georgina Gill, our event Raffle coordinator, presented David and Cassie Kitchen from Ballistic Brewing with a Certificate of Appreciation, for their ongoing support.
