I have to start by thanking all who helped volunteer their time last Saturday at the Shed BBQ and at the YAC Roll On In event at the Campbelltown Leisure Centre. I had a great time with Ronda, Mina and Ian helping kids put on their roller skates at the YAC event and saw Roller Derby for the first time which was very interesting. It was good of Ronda to give the roller skating a go, pity my picture missed her falling on her bum, but at least I got a picture as proof she tried it. Tuesday’s meeting was a great morning with our guest speaker Pamela St Claire showing us why Interplast is such an amazing program. For those who don’t know Interplast sends teams of volunteer plastic surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses etc. to developing countries in the Asia Pacific region to provide free medical treatment and training. The slogan for Interplast is “Repairing Bodies, Rebuilding Lives” which from what we saw and heard really outlines what these people do. The team once on the ground visit villages, meeting with hundreds of families whose children suffer a disability that would usually have them shunned or ostracised such as cleft palates, burns or facial deformities. From these hundreds of cases they have to select the worst cases to give their aid to by way of plastic and reconstructive surgery. The teams also assist with training of local doctors and surgeons in the latest techniques in plastic and reconstructive surgery so that once they are gone they will have people in the region with the ability to keep their legacy going. Pamela St Claire gave us some interesting stats below to show how the program has grown in the last 27 years: 1983 8 programs run 3 countries visited 353 operations performed 28 Volunteers $228,000 services provided

2010 41 programs run 16 countries visited 1000 operations performed 140 volunteers $2.2million services provided

An amazing address and an amazing program, thank you Pamela for coming out to see us with your presentation. Enough from me, I hope you all have a great long weekend and I will see you all on Tuesday.

Australian History 1788 – Captain Arthur Phillip names Manly Cove in Sydney. 1899 – The Leaders of six Australian colonies meet in Melbourne to discuss a federation bill. 1988 – Tennant Creek, Australia, is hit by three earthquakes, one registering 6.7 on the Richter scale. World History 1840 – The first British colonists to New Zealand arrive on Auckland Island. 1901 – The Queen Victoria of England dies. Thought for the Day 1: Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you. Thought for the Day 2: I don’t suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.
