  • MEETING 1125: QUIZZES AND DINNERS
    The City of Campbelltown has come through once again with it’s annual Service Club Dinner Tuesday evening. It’s always good to catch up with people from other service clubs in our area, many of whom I now socially. The Guest Speaker Louise Miller Frost, CEO of St Vincent de Paul, gave us an idea on …
  • MEETING 1124: MEET THE ARTHOUSE
    We welcomed Meg Haseltine from the Campbelltown Arthouse, a local gem nestled next the Council Chambers on Montacute Road. There are so many activities at the Arthouse, and budding artists wanting to promote their work can even hire the venue for a minimal amount and hang their art on the walls. Novices of all ages …
  • MEETING 1123: ROCK YA PAIN
    Regular Stall Holders at our Monthly Market, Lina and Tony promote a pain relief product, Rock Ya Pain. Rock Ya Pain is a magnesium-based pain relief ointment that Tony came across a few years back at the Royal Adelaide Show. 1123 Bulletin
  • MEETING 1122: REPAIR CAFE
    Susan Lloyd (doyen of Athelstone Kiwanis) is an advocate for the spread of Repair Cafes and establishing one in Campbelltown. Susan was supposed to jointly present with Sophie Kavoukis (City of Campbelltown), but Sophie was off colour and though better of risking our health. In a nutshell, if it’s busted, then consider fixing it. 1122 …
  • MEETING 1121: ABOUT PUMPKINS AND NUTRITION
    They say that smells can trigger all sorts of memories, but I’m mystified as to what gets into Sgt Simon’s head at times. Enamoured with the delights of Robyn Holcroft’s pumkin soup his quiz question asked us to explain the origins of Pumpkin Soup. Naturally, no one even got close. It turns out that he …
  • 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 …
  • 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 …
  • 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 …
  • 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 …
  • 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 …
  • 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 …
