Another busy week in Rotary that started with the incoming Taiwanese GSE team presentation at the Norwood Town Hall hosted by the RC Norwood. It was an awesome night talking to Rotary members from other clubs and indulging in some tasty food...not to mention a great presentation from the Taiwanese GSE Team. This week’s meeting had Romina Mandica from CanTeen visit the club to give us an idea of what CanTeen is all about and also to show us where our money we donated to them went. For those who don’t know our club recently funded an Amazing Race Rec day for CanTeen. Here kids who had been through a cancer experience went through a series of challenges as groups which made them work as a team to complete them. We provided the BBQ for the kids and volunteers before they went off to complete these challenges and we even had a few members join in the fun. I for one thought this was an incredible experience for the kids and all our members who helped out on the day; times like these remind you why you join a service club. CanTeen as a charity helps kids who either have experienced their own cancer diagnosis or the diagnosis of a brother, sister or parent. Romina advised us that every year in Australia over 30,000 young people’s lives are thrown off track by a cancer diagnosis and how research has proven that young people living with cancer have greater levels of psychological distress than their peers and are at greater risk from mental health problems occurring….this is where CanTeen comes in. They are the only organization that provides support for 12-24 year olds – no matter what their real life cancer experience is. Their programs include 5 specialist youth cancer services, 250 face to face support programs, peer support network, counseling, an online support service and range of books and Youth Leadership and Empowerment programs. An amazing charity that I do hope we continue to support in future years.

Australian History 1815 – Following completion of the first road over the Blue Mountains, Governor Macquarie names Bathurst. World History 1915 – British ship, the Lusitania, is sunk by a German submarine, resulting in the loss of 1,198 lives. 1942 – The Battle of the Coral sea begins.

Thought for the Day 1: The purpose of life is a life of purpose. Thought for the Day 2: Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.

A remarkable week with 12 people getting all 9 games correct in Round 6. However, 6 was the magic number for Round 6 – and only Judy Cushway [Morialta] followed instructions (which is a first in itself!!!)

For those who picked 9, they can console themselves with their Hungry Jacks Whopper. With so many highly skilled tippers in the competition, we will let them fight it out. The prize for Round 7 will go to the top tipper for this week. GOOD LUCK
