  • MEETING 1120: LAMINGTONS & RAWCS
    According to Simon today we were celebrating a national culinary treasure, so what it it? Well no one knew that 21st July was National Lamington Day. On the sweets theme he went on to ask what was our favourite sweet or dessert. Some of us just preferred savory, but many just recalled their mother’s pièce … Read more
  • MEETING 1119: REVERSING YOUR MORTGAGE
    I had reason recently to look up old colleague, Bob Budreika, from the Financial Planning days, seeking his advice. Bob (as heard on Radio Station 5AA) is an expert on Reverse Mortgages and their application for a ‘smooth retirement’. A sliding scale that increases the loan to value ratio based on age and longevity means … Read more
  • MEETING 1118: BACK TO THE FUTURE
    The alarm was set for 5:58 AM last Tuesday morning and I then headed off to the CMO for our first clubrooms meeting there since Covid shutdown. All attendees signed off the Council’s Covid Attendance Form and we were compliant re seating and the serving of food. 1118 Bulletin
  • MEETING 1117: ANNUAL CHANGEOVER
    Immediate Past President Greg gave a summary of his year’s truncated year, which went off with a bang before Xmas with our Market move to Campbelltown Memorial Oval, but we watched it fizzle out in March with Covid restrictions. Never the less, Greg did a marvellous job holding the club together with the help of … Read more
  • MEETING 1116: THINGS TO DO!
    Our discussion topic was more a club assembly on the proposed online quiz night that had previously been suggested to replace the Reel Event which we cancelled due to the Govt regulations on Covid-19. Simon gave us a little more thorough idea of what he has in mind with this moving forward and I must … Read more
  • MEETING 1115: WHAT DID WE LEARN DURING ISOLATION?
    We had another great turn out to our Zoom meeting this week and also had our Campbelltown Mayor Jill Whittaker in attendance. President Greg thought he’d better show our Mayor that we also have a chain (noting that both wear it infrequently though!). Our discussion topic for the night was tell us something you have … Read more
  • MEETING 1114: PLANNING
    We had another healthy turn out to our Zoom meeting on Tuesday which WAS supposed to be our last online get together. As a tribute we adopted the names of our supposed famous doppelgangers on our Zoom names. Topics covered included moving back to our normal breakfast meetings, The Reel Event and other possible fundraising … Read more
  • MEETING 1113: INSIDE STATELESS
    We had another near full house of heads this week at our Tuesday Zoom meeting plus a few special guests in Sue Lloyd from Athelstone Kiwanis and recent Sunrise Market stallholder and our very own movie producer extraordinaire and Magill Sunrise Past President Kirst Stark. Kirsty was our guest speaker, giving us an insight into … Read more
  • MEETING 1112: ROMAC
    We had another good turnout at this week’s meeting as well as our guest speaker D’Arcy Walsh the Chairperson for ROMAC’s Central Region. ROMAC is the acronym for “Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children” and is a combined Australia and New Zealand Multi-district Rotary project that has been in operation for over 30 years. ROMAC … Read more
  • MEETING 1111: FROM MAGILL TO GULGONG
    This week we had another full house of heads on our Zoom meeting board with a guest in Benny Bosman, President of the Campbelltown Rotary Club. Our guest speaker was supposed to be from Lifeline this week, but Pauline threw them a ‘namesake’ as they were unavailable so Pauline gave us a Caravan Tourist’s Guide/History … Read more
  • MEETING 1110: READING THE SIGNS
    Our guest speakers this week were from Able Australia, an organization we have recently joined with to support some individuals go to a DeafBlind camp in the not too distant future (hopefully). So, this was the topic of their presentation and wasn’t it amazing to see them present with the help of technology. 1110 Bulletin
  • MEETING 1109: AROUND THE MEMBERS
    We had a full house of heads on our Zoom Meeting board this week and it was great to see Graham and Robyn and also Bernard for the first time. As we didn’t have a guest speaker lined up, I thought I would go around the board to see what people are doing in isolation. … Read more
