Notes from President Fran Hodgson
  • Best wishes to everyone as you cope with ‘staying inside’; maybe  having to close your shop or business, losing your job , looking for toilet paper and hand sanitizer and writing long lists of things to do around the house!!!  I am really missing our weekly Rotary meetings and fellowship  ....are you?  I will be sending invites out to members to join Zoom over the next two weeks.
  • Thank you to Julie for organizing the Meals on Wheels roster for next week. Those doing the meal runs must ensure that they sanitise their hands before taking each meal in to the client. Please follow all the social distancing rules as well.
  • I have asked Julia to attach the Community Contact flyer.  If you know of anyone  who might need , or appreciate a phone call to see how they are going,  please contact the Granite Belt Neighbourhood Centre and provide details.  
  • Now that you all have time to read the April edition of the  Rotary Down Under Magazine   , Check out P. 40 ... you will find an article about  Stanthorpe Water Relief , particularly about George Dean President of  RC Archerfield and his wonderful water donations. The Stanthorpe Rotary Club get a mention.
  • PP Karen Thomas from the Rotary Club of Burleigh Heads has been confirmed  as our District Governor for the 2022- 2023 Rotary year.
  • David Harmon from RC of Ballina on Richmond has been in touch to say that their Douse the Drought Poker Run planned for August this year has been postponed. The club will consider running it in  September/October if things are back to normal!! Otherwise it could be in March / April 2021 . 
  • Please send me any nominations for PHFs in the next week or two as time is running out to get the Certificates and badges before the end of my Rotary year.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
The government has announced a sweeping ban on jokes about social distancing, in an effort to contain their spread.
We all have an unsuspected reserve of strength inside that emerges when life puts us to the test.    Isobel Mead
  Missing our Meetings and Activities
We're all in this together
Remember to give our friends a call. 
Bill is feeling a little isolated.  0429 837 233
Bill sent me this picture and I thought to share it with you.  I have been so busy, I forgot to give Bill a call last week.
Perhaps you have something to share with Bill.

How are you going?

Sometimes all we need is someone to ask: how are you going?

If you, or someone you know, would like us to make phone contact then please register your name and number with us by contacting our office.

This is not a counselling service. Our aim is to improve wellbeing and social connection during this time.
