Hello Rotarians,
I would like to thank Jim Barnes for inviting the Guest speaker for last week’s meeting. It was very informative.
We’ve had a reprieve from some of our catering jobs! The Summit State School has decided to postpone the Centenary celebrations and will let us know when it will be on.
Please check the calendar for the next events.
Meals on Wheels week commences on August 30.
We’re catering for Foxbar Falls open day on September 12 for a fundraiser for Karma.
I hope Julie and Fran are recovering well from their operations! You have our best wishes. If we can be of any assistance, please let us know.
Have a good weekend and see you all on Monday, August 23 for the next dinner and Board meeting. The next Satellite meeting is on Wednesday, August 18 at Sutton’s.

Guest Speaker - 

Guest Speaker Marty Hansen talked to our Rotary Group on Monday evening about his experiences as Officer in Charge at the Stanthorpe Queensland Ambulance where he is currently posted for two weeks.  Thanks to Jim Barnes for organising Marty as Guest Speaker.

Marty is usually stationed at Goondiwindi where he has been working for the past 8 years.  Goondiwindi Ambulance Station reached an epic milestone of 100 years in March this year.

Marty is married with 2 children and enjoys his life as a Paramedic.  He came from a trade background in Data Communications and was fortunate to be able to learn Paramedics on the job.  Now days to join the Ambulance staff requires a minimum of 3 years University based Bachelor of Paramedicine and some complete the extra year which includes Nursing.  Marty speaks respectfully of the level of training, but believes it is on the job training that is required.  That experience is valuable.  Marty said there is a broad range of knowledge within the Queensland Ambulance and this experience assists in making the life at the station and on the job very interesting.  It is a life of shift work for Paramedics.

Marty has a great style of presentation and the Rotarians kept him very busy with questions which he answered with enthusiasm and knowledge.

Satellite Club - 
The police are going to receive the Tachmed kit at our meeting on Wednesday 18th 5.45pm at Suttons. James Lister who sponsored the kit will also be in attendance.
All welcome but please RSVP for catering purposes.
Meals on Wheels! - 
We are on delivery for Meals on Wheels from the 30th August to the 3rd September. I will send out group text next week. 
Also want to thank everyone for their well wishes. Slow road to recovery, but at least am on that road. Better than the alternative! 
Thanks again, 
Julie Beddow


Apple & Grape Ambassador -

Samantha Wantling said that Karma O’Reilly impressed the board the other evening. 

Her words - 

“Please pass on to the Rotary Club that Karma attended our committee meeting last night and she was an absolute credit to not only herself but also to your group so if you could let the members all know how  impressed we all were as a board”.

Thanks Karma for being our Ambassador and waving the Rotary Flag high!

Everyone is welcome.
A blast from the past.
