Alcohol is not the answer; it just makes you forget the question.
Always keep your words soft and sweet just in case you have to eat them.
Worry is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere.
Don’t you find it strange that doctors call what they do a practice?

Meeting Report Monday 6th August 2019 Meeting 3005

Lee Ann Chenoweth        Richard Coldwith   Alison Needham            Mel
Jenny Leadbeater          David Ward              Keith Weinell                 Grace Barilla        Marg Ahrens
PP Mike Williams as Almoner announced that Kevin Clarke will undergo surgery in a weeks time and that Jan Meldrum is not fully recovered from his accident.  
 PP Patsy Johnson has recommenced collecting used stamps for Trachoma eradication.  The group was 3rd in collection last year. A stamp album donated by a friend of Julie Tekell will be valued this week. Some stamps received last year are still being sorted before being sent to the Brighton, Victoria Club.
There was no guest speaker, but many members spoke of their experiences in Rotary and the opportunity it offers.  They spoke of how they enjoy the fellowship of Rotary and working together for the benefit of the local and the broader community.  Rotary’s existence and overall advancement since 1905 is witness to the prestige and acceptance of Rotary as a community benefit. Sharing similar commitment with Lions, Apex, Zonta etc. etc. is to the overall benefit and advantage of the worldwide community. 
One of the speakers was IPP Jacqui Atyeo who spoke about her Rotary experiences which include community events to promote peace and understanding.  These projects included assembling 600 birthing kits with the help of community volunteers and Zonta and making 100 birthday bags which were donated to the Northern Domestic Violence Shelter.
Jacqui explained that Rotary consisted of clubs joined together in a District and beyond that is Rotary International.  Jacqui has enjoyed working at a District level.  This work included being Team Leader for a Vocational Training Team to the Philippines.  This team spent four weeks working with teachers and children at all levels of education (child care to university level).  In subsequent years she was also a member of the District Committee which organised two dental vocational training teams to Vanuatu.  These teams undertook oral health assessment and training in schools and dental work (extracting and restorative).  The people from that area had never had the opportunity to visit the dentist.  Subsequent to this visit District 9500 and clubs sponsored a dental worker from Vanuatu to come to Adelaide to complete a course at Gilles Plains Tafe. This worker returned to Vanuatu more able to help the people in her community.
Mark Smeaton spoke about his involvement in a local community project to build a new shed for the Willo’s Men’s Shed group.  The project was funded via a Fund My Neighbourhood State Government Grant.  Mark was the project manager.  The shed is almost complete, and an official opening will be held soon.
Group 9 Uganda Dental Project Update
RC Barossa Valley held a quiz night on Saturday 10 August.  The event raised over $3000 for the project, which takes funds to over $20,000.
RC Kapunda 60th Celebration
RC Kapunda dinner to celebrate 60 years of service to the Kapunda and international community was held on Saturday 10 August at the Kapunda Bowling Club.  The club was represented by PE - PP Brian Burt.  President David Hodge read out an email from President Steve Barilla to the attendees.  Club members Trish Williams, Alan Harris and Marie-louise Lees also attended the event.
We Rotarians are sometimes inclined to look backwards too much; to rest on our laurels; to continually dwell on the glories of post achievements. It may be alright sometimes to glance backwards as a guide to future plans but we should be ever mindful of the fact that of greater achievements. To do this we must always be looking to the future, making plans and putting those plans into action. How can we do this?  By always keeping in mind the purpose and object of Rotary and by forming our plans along the five avenues of service.
