Well! The Satellite Club had an exciting final meeting for 2018. We decided to support the Stamp collecting project for End Trachoma by 2020, drew some crazy Christmas trees behind our backs in Jo’s Fun Spot and discussed supporting a Literacy program in 2019... all great items. However, the moment to remember was Leeanne’s 30 second sprint up the stairs at the RSL to win a cool $500 (with 1 second to go!) What a birthday gift. Leeanne’s comments included “ I knew I could make it -  I go to the gym every week😊” and “ Now Mario won’t mind me going out to meetings all the time😉” Congrats Leeanne and Happy Birthday for 13th. See picture  below.
I repeat the story from last week re the Interact club as the pictures did not show in the version sent out. Satellite and Interact Clubs are putting in a big effort to End Trachoma in Australian indigenous communities.
Monday Club meeting was at the Men's Shed to see the progress they have made with setting up equipment etc since their inception. Thanks to Jim Barnes for organising before his departure to laze about on the high seas- hope Owen is not causing too much havoc. Thanks also to all who provided food and the Men's Shed for hosting us.
Monday night is the Rotary Christmas party at Happy Valley as per Julia's notice below. 6 for 6.30pm
OnFriday afternoon/evening 21st Dec., we have our Ham Wheel in the main street outside the Country Club Hotel. From 4-5 we have Kim, Tony, Jim Baxter and Denise

See you all at the Christmas Party and hope everyone has a wonderful festive season.
Interact, Christmas, Stamps, Trachoma
Stanthorpe Interact finished the school year with a party meeting filled with softdrink, cake, lollies and games (they are only teenagers, after all!). But there was a serious note to their final meeting. They decided to take on a Christmas Community Service Project - collecting stamps for End Trachoma by 2020. While Stamps aren't seen much any more (one Interactor asked what a stamp was!!), they are more common at Christmas time with cards being posted, and they are still valuable. This is a simple project that will contribute funds to an Australian cause that will benefit Australian Indigenous kids. Please collect your stamps and pass them on to Ann Richardson or via Norm Gale. They will be added to the Interact Collection. PS the collection will continue on into next year. If you would like to know more about the End Trachoma by 2020 Australian project or about the Stamp Collection, see the posters below.
