Weekly Meeting 24 February 2020

This week our guests were General Ajai Barnabas Massey, his wife Cheryl, and Reverend Graham Whelan.

Peter Wardman advised the club that some members attended two recent information and feedback sessions concerning (1) a local Performing Arts Space and (2) City Hill Development. A feedback line is still open on the Council’s website for City Hill Development (closes 3rd March) and Peter encouraged members to view the website write and give feedback. Here is the link. 

Paul McKeon asked members to attend this week’s Council meeting if possible, to show support for The National Cartoon Gallery’s request for assistance with infrastructure charges associated with the new development and an extension of Council’s financial subsidy. Please make it along to the meeting if you can.

Jay Clowes advised that Coffs Harbour Rotary Club are seeking our assistance in locating worthy applicants to make application for financial assistance from their recent Bushfire Appeal. If you know of anyone affected who may require support, please advise President Paul.

Ian McAllister then introduced General Massey to speak to members and guests. General Massey gave us his thoughts on the seemingly eternal conflict in the middle east. His talk was very interesting and well presented. Lunch was taken during a break in his talk and he resumed afterwards, followed by a brief Q&A session.

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