Although only few in numbers, but loud in voice, President Greg call us to order at 7.00pm for a quick informative meeting. Alternate drops of steak and mushroom sauce and chicken parmesan were quickly served and eaten with a considerable time for fellowship.

President Greg then moved into Directors reports as follows:

• An international night is being organised for 16 Nov in aid of Polio Plus

• Helpers are required to take down the Calendar Photos on Tuesday 4 Oct. at 9.00am at Maple 3. Come and have coffee on Lionel.

• Bike Ed in Maleny has been completed. Thanks for all who helped.

• Two students nominated by Maleny Rotary will be attending the Science Experience.

• A vocational visit to the Caloundra Air Museum is being investigated.

• The final meeting of Splendour in the Grass was held to discuss any future call if asked to participate.
Minutes will be circulated in due course.

• 70th anniversary of the gifting of land for Mary Cairncross Park is on 18 Oct. Maleny Rotary is running the lunch time BBQ.

• Club Assembly on 12 Oct at Maleny High with a BBQ meal at $10.

• The Christmas Carols and Street Carnival are in the planning stages for the first week in December.

Sergeant Rick, after a very low key introduction, proceeded to extract pain for members' misdemeanors. Brian D was fined for being wounded in the line of fire; Jim A for having a poofy conference bag; Rick for his loud red shirt; Greg S for his new collar put together by Secretary Karen; and Tony H for his complaints!! Sgt Rick has taken to heart the complaint from our ladies about his risqué jokes so Charlotte had one of her own (clean) about married bliss in 1933. Rick V won the heads and tails, but on scratching the card, won nothing to shout the bar.

Our guest speaker Emily Batista was introduced by Director Deb L. Emily is a year 11 student at Maleny High and is in the sea cadets and an Interact Club member. Deb commented on how her self confidence had grown with her involvement in these organisations. Emily attended the recent RYPEN camp at Coolum along with another Maleny Rotary Club nominee Luke Cauley. RYPEN is a program designed to enrich the experiences of young people in our community and demonstrate the qualities of leadership.

Emily told the meeting that the camp really took her out of her comfort zone and built her confidence to handle unexpected situations. She was never bored and has made a new network of friends from different walks of life. Some of her memories will be pretending to be a chicken, an icebreaker exercise for the group and acting out situations which would have made her self conscious. Emily now has the confidence to put her nomination forward to be school captain next year and firmly believes you only get out what you are prepared to put into an opportunity.

She expressed her thanks to Maleny Rotary for giving her the opportunity to attend the RYPEN camp.
