President Carolyn's Notes
Thanks to David and Linda Morris for providing their home and garden as venue for afternoon tea on Sunday 19th.  The event was a fund raiser to provide outdoor furniture for a well-used park in Mount Eliza.  It was great to see such a varied group of members, friends and younger people.  Congratulations to Linda and the Community team for a very well organised event.  We will hear about the total money raised very soon.
Last week's meeting was a very busy one with a combination of things.  Its always great to welcome new members.  In this case, we welcomed Jamie Hunt who transferred from Rotary in Moe. Also, Claire Pearce, who has returned to Rotary after having relocated.
Our two National Youth Science Forum NYSF candidates and parents came to introduce themselves.  NYSF has returned to a two week residential program in either Canberra or Brisbane in January.  We will see the girls again once they have been.
Our speaker Ian Chen gave his perspective on life in China and the reasons for him coming to Australia where he has been for some time.  His parents are still in China and he returns regularly now that Covid lockdowns have been lifted.  Ian fielded many questions from the floor.  I am pleased to report that he has made a significant donation to our Trust. Thank you Ian.

      Chinese Australian businessman Ian Chen gave a very interesting talk about what it's like to live in China.

      We hope to see him and his wife Lydia at more of our meetings.  Thanks again to Judy Coultas for arranging another great speaker.

Brynton's Joke of the Week
Brynton's Joke of the Week
A preacher was making his rounds to his parishioners on a bicycle when he came upon little Johnny trying to sell a lawn mower.
"How much do you want for the mower?" asked the preacher. "I just want enough money to go out and buy me a bicycle," said little Johnny.
After a moment of consideration, the preacher asked, "Will you take my bike in trade for it?"
Little Johnny said, "Mister, you've got yourself a deal."
The preacher took the mower and tried to start it. He pulled and pulled on the rope until he was dripping with sweat but the mower refuses to start.
The preacher called little Johnny over and said, "I can't get this mower to start."
Little Johnny said, "That's because you have to cuss at it to get it started."
The preacher said, "I'm a man of the church and I can't cuss. It's been so long since I've been saved that I don't even remember how to cuss."
Little Johnny looked at him happily and said, "Just keep pulling on that rope. It'll come back to ya.
