1. Zonta Seeds of Change Forum on Sat 22 May 2021
It was a privilege to attend this forum against domestic and family violence and Elder Abuse held at the University of the Sunshine Coast. The key note speaker was Rosie Batty. And our own Sherryl G gave a magnificent presentation outlining the background, approach to and numerous projects that have been completed and are planned for tackling this issue in the Sunshine Coast hinterland by our collaborative partnership of local service clubs under the banner of Speak Up Now. Sherryl also challenged other communities around Australia to adopt our grassroots model to effect change and make a real impact on community attitudes to respect.
Andrew Wallace also spoke of the extent gravity and pernicious impact of pornography on all levels of society, how it is impacting on respect in Australia between family members and steps he sees as necessary to stop our children from being flooded with it through inadvertent searches.
3. The 2021 Maleny Agricultural Show
Wow. The words "Best Show Ever" are already being thrown about. As your President, I am so proud of the selfless involvement of so many of our club members and their partners, past members and their partners, and prospective members in the planning for, and the tireless and dedicated volunteering of their time and undertaking of enormous contributions to the operation of the Friday Gate, the Parking at Maleny Pioneer Village and Hoppers land, at the guess the weight of the bull competition, and at our Rotary Food Stall.
And apart from the tremendous value for money fare we have provided to so many Show attendees, it was just so satisfying to witness so many people return time and time again for our Maleny Show Stopper Steakburgers , pea and ham soup or pumpkin soup, hamburgers, egg and bacon burgers, hot dogs, tea or coffees, sausages in a blanket, and wide range of pizzas.
Thank you one and all for making your contribution to a great Maleny Show.
And now it's off for the clean up on Sunday morning.
President Greg opened the meeting with the usual formalities.
