Last Tuesday’s meeting got off to a slightly late start due to Sergeant Kirsty being a little late (did she fine herself??) and some problems in the kitchen, but we soon got things under control and we were treated to a fantastic meal from Gary and Leonie and then presentation by our guest speaker Ralph Holmes. It was also our first bring a guest to breakfast meeting for the year. We could only muster 2 guests, thanks dad and Joe, but I do hope they both enjoyed their experience at our club and we see them again sometime soon!! It did not help our cause that we did not have a laptop for Ralph’s presentation so thanks must go to Lindsay for his dash home to retrieve this for him. Ralph is an ex Fraud Squad detective who now works for ASIC (not the shoes – Australian Securities and Investment Commission) as a Manager of Financial Services Enforcement so I am pretty sure he is well credentialed to tell us some the tips and traps of investing. He walked us through firstly what ASIC is and the services they provide, then through the do’s, don’ts and scams to look out for if and when you decide to invest some of that hard earned. He made us aware of the ASIC’s MoneySmart website, which contains all the information you will ever need for safe investment.

One part of this website that made me prick up my ears was the money search page, where you can search a pool of $600 odd million dollars for money you may not have realized was yours. I also was quite interested in the budgeting information and calculators available to all, as I for one am a terrible saver. It was great to meet our NYSF representative Lucymarie Silvestri from Mary MacKillop College, her mother Antaletta and her sister Bianca at our meeting who were also our guests for the morning. Lucymarie is off to Canberra for what I am sure will be an amazing experience, so it will be interesting to hear what she got up to when she returns to our club later in the year. Sadly our game of Who Am I had to be postponed this week due to the late start but Sergeant Kirsty happily fined all and sundry for their bloopers during the week. As usual I had a few fines to pay and also a happy buck for my 12km run this weekend in the City Bay fun run; also thanks to those who are sponsoring me. I’m not really sure if this is a happy buck.........’pain buck’ maybe? The late delivery date for this bulletin is also just more ammo for fining me again. Anyway have a great week everybody and I’ll see you all Tuesday.

1863 – Bushranger Captain Thunderbolt escapes from the supposedly escape-proof Cockatoo Island gaol.

1609 – Henry Hudson discovers the Hudson River and Manhattan Island, where New York City now stands. 2001 – The United States is hit by terrorist attacks, leaving thousands dead.

He who laughs last probably didn't get the joke.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of a worthy enterprise and in particular to encourage and foster The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by every Rotarian of their occupation as an opportunity to serve society. The application of the ideal service by every Rotarian to their personal, business and community life. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional people united in the ideal of service.

The Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it Fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

For good food, good fellowship And the opportunity to serve through Rotary …we give thanks.
