President Greg opened the meeting by introducing our guest IPDG Eric Wood and asking him to address the members.  Eric presented the Club with several copies of a magazine entitled ‘Humanity in Motion’ which outlines the many facets of RI activities throughout the world. He requested that members take copies & distribute them throughout the community.

A highlight of the night was the presentation by Eric to Chris Brooker of an award entitled ‘Club Builder Award’. This award is approved by the President of RI and is given to only one Rotarian per district per year for outstanding service to Rotary – well done Chris - you’re our District's top bloke in 2010/11.  This must be one of the very few occasions that the recipient was lost for words!

Directors’ reports informed us that Bike Ed will be conducted next week (numbers please to Chris), that the 5th Wednesday of any month will be a partners’ night, that Interact raised $1,000 at their Bunnings sausage sizzle last weekend, $500 of which will help defray the costs of sending 2 students to the NYSF experience. Our Christmas party will be held December 14th and that a Club Assembly is scheduled for 21st September.

Deb L. gave a very interesting talk on her involvement with youth activities both in Montana & Maleny. She came from a large family of 12 children & devoted much of her time in Montana to working with children with special needs – 3 years were spent in a kindy environment and 6 in a high school addressing youth education. She is heavily involved with our Interact Club & is delighted that membership numbers have climbed from 6 three years ago to 22 in 2011. She praised the efforts of the Interact members & finished by saying that many of them in time would make great Rotarians.

The meeting closed with PDG Eric encouraging members to give a thought to attending the RI Convention in Thailand in 2012.
