Vocational Visit

Tonight’s Vocational Visit to the Corinda Compounding Chemist.

Members attended the Corinda Compounding Chemist for a vocational visit on Tuesday 30th September.

Club member and compounding pharmacist Elisa spoke about the reasons why compounding is becoming increasingly popular.

Elisa introduced members to the lab, the protective clothing worn and the equipment that is used to make different products.

She then demonstrated how to make a batch of Zinc Picolinate capsules.

Members witnessed the making of these batch capsules from start to finish with some members volunteering to assist Elisa in the process. 

A lively Q&A at the end of our visit was extremely beneficial and informative.

Many thanks to Elisa for hosting this visit, to her employer for making the facility available and to her colleagues for allowing the intrusion.

Dining Out at Oxley

Dinner at the Thai Malila.

Last night the club held its monthly Dining Out Night at the Thai Malila in Cook Street, Oxley.
Great food and even better company ensured that it was a great night.
The highlight of the evening was a presentation by President Ted Crowe to Rhonda Ganko, our member who drives our involvement at “Sailability”. 
Rhonda was rewarded for her efforts, not only at Sailabilty, but for the tireless hours she devotes to the club and our projects.

Congratulations Rhonda.
