Weekly Meeting 14 October 2019

This week, Paul McKeon reminded members that the Rotary Cartoon Awards exhibition is still showing, so if you had not a chance to see it yet you still have time. There are some great exhibits, so please get along if you can.

Bernard Dowling proposed that the club donate $200 to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service as a one off donation. All members were in favour of this, so Treasurer John will arrange it.

John Donaldson confirmed our vocational visit to Park Beach Plaza on 28th October. Lunch will be at Sylvio’s Restaurant at the northern entrance. More details next week.

President Paul advised members that he has arranged a Cocktail Function for next Friday (18th Oct.) at the C.ex Rib-eye Rooftop Tapas Bar as an introduction to potential new members. It is proposed to be for an hour only so as not to disrupt people from their other Friday night activities. Please make it along if you can.

President Paul then handed over to Ian McAllister, who introduced our guest speakers, Ian, Troy and Seth Brown (three generations of the Brown family), who told us about their history in local go-carting. Troy has been a local, state and national champion and his young son Seth was recently crowned State Champion in his age group. They brought along two of their championship go-carts for members to view.

For all that and more, check out this week’s edition of the Coffs City Chatroom.
