A Message From President Wendy

SOME PHOT OS FROM OUR NEAR NEIGHBOURS

TO MARKET – TO MARKET ! Dadeer kmanek, to you all again this w eek. I have been doing some research for some ideas on how I can progress my theme for this year. I came across a project that the Rotary Club of Honolulu Sunrise established in 1996. The project was simple. Every child in Honolulu w ill be read to every day for 10 minutes. The single most important activity for building the know ledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children. This program has grow n into an international program.

OUTDOOR PLUMBING AT IT’S BEST

WHO NEEDS WEST ERN TECHNOL OGY TO HAV E FUN

Within the project there are several programs including “ Fathers Bridging the Miles, and “ Prison Literacy Program. The program that interests me is the program “Books for Babies”. Each new mother is given a book for her baby as well as an information package on why it is important to read to your child from an early age. This is something that some of the club members may be interested in exploring further. As Darw in is the major birthing centre for the Top End of the NT, it is one w ay that w e can be offering our hands to our community’s future. Digressing, don’t forget the Harry Potter preview next w eek as one of our fund raising activities.

Some of the

best stories ever told . . . GSE 2009 Australia – Rotary District 5060's GSE Team Blog! Goodbye is not a fun word. We've learned that over the last few days. It is currently Monday morning for us, and we've had to say goodbye to so many friends and people who we now think of as family. District 9550 conference was 'fantastic'! We had our final presentation in Australia, and it was a blast! We treated the Rotarians to a song about our time here, a few words about our experiences and a slideshow (to be posted soon!) that brought back great memories. Townsville sunrise also had a hand in making the Conference trip so memorable. As we wrapped up our presentation we were accosted by Pirates and held for ransom - more than $3000 for Foundation! We are about to board our flight for home, not looking forward to leaving but definitely looking forward to seeing our friends and family! See you all soon! No worries, mate! Andrew
