If only closed minds came with closed mouths.
 
Don’t confuse the people who are always around you with the people who area always there for you.
 
If symptoms persist insult your doctor.
 
Anyone can hit rock bottom – but can you bounce back.
 
It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice.

ACTS REFLECT OUR THOUGHTS
 
We are the essence of what we think. As we think, so do we do.
If we think kindly about others, our acts will reflect these inner
thoughts. If we espouse the principles of decency, honesty and
justice, our conduct and business dealings will radiate far more
effectively than advertising the Rotary concept of the brotherhood
of man. For the principles of the brotherhood of man imply a bond of
unity, fellowship and goodwill. The antitheses is bitterness, hate, and anger
 to which no true Rotarian should lay claim.
 
“Rotary” does not make a Rotarian. The member, in the first place,
must believe in the principles of Rotary, not after he has been
approved for membership, but long before he has been accorded
the privilege of becoming a member. It is the Rotarian, the individual
member who makes Rotary the dynamic vehicle for community service,
locally, nationally and globally.
 
It has been said that the labourer is worthy of his hire. Truly it
may be said that SERVICE ABOVE SELF is its own reward.

PP Brian Burt thanked those who brought along guests last week. Please keep in touch with them. Brian attended the Kapunda 60th meeting which was a good night.

Barry Stewart as Sergeant announced Marie-louise as 1st Prize and Kym Potger as 2nd winner. The Bunyip roundup included a “10 year ago” of the Gawler Racecourse upgrade.

NOW IS THE ONLY TIME
 
Some time ago, there passed away a man who was noted for a life of extraordinary usefulness. Many people were interested in knowing something of the motives which had impelled this person in his unselfish pursuit of opportunities for doing good.  A clue was discovered when someone found in his pocket the following poem, crumpled, well worn and with marginal notes.
 
“The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop,
At later or early hour.
Now is the only time you own,
Give, love, toil with a will,
Place no faith in tomorrow,
For the clock may then be still.
