President Carolyn's Notes
Apologies - today's Bulletin contained last year's Christmas Party Information
Please see notice below for correct information
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.
This Week's Speaker
We had a most interesting night of meeting our new and transferring members, congratulating out Science Scholarship Winner and hearing a most interesting talk about China from a Chinese Australian Businessman.
 Jamie Hunt, hiding behind Claire, transferred from Moe Rotary and Claire Pearce returning to Rotary after having relocated
   Aina Amberkar and Ceara Taylor and their very proud parents were awarded Rotary NYSF Scholarships to attend workshops in Canberra.  Congratulations  girls

      Chinese Australian businessman Ian Chen gave a very interesting talk about what it's like to live in China.
      He was very forthcoming in his honest answers to the many questions that were asked by our members.
      We hope to see him and his wife Lydia at more of our meetings.  Thanks again to Judy Coultas for arranging another great speaker.
