Weekly Meeting 17 May 2021

This week honorary member Warren Grimshaw and past rotarian Tom Murray-Prior paid us a visit. It was good to see them back in our midst.

Geoff reported that three prospective attendees for the National Youth Science Forum, students from Jetty High, will be joining us at next week’s lunch to meet the club and tell us about themselves. It would be great to have a good turnout.

Warren spoke about his role as Chairman of the Mid North Coast Local Health District Board, the progress of the building works at Coffs Harbour Hospital and the “behind the scenes” reality of large construction projects. Everyone thinks of bed and nurses, but Warren reminded us of the involvement of electricians, maintenance staff and cleaners, without whom the extension can’t be opened and the hospital would soon fall into disrepair.

There’s no Chatroom this week because editor Terry was away, but join us next week for more Rotary happenings.
