Ro­tary ex­cited about move for Scouts re­turn

Chinchilla News - - LIFE - with Vince McCaf­frey

IT was a good at­ten­dance at the Ro­tary meet­ing last week when Mr Ian Chap­man was guest speaker.

Ian only came to Chin­chilla with his wife last Septem­ber but al­ready he and some friends have or­gan­ised to restart the Scout move­ment in Chin­chilla.

It is ex­cel­lent to know this im­por­tant youth as­so­ci­a­tion has re­turned to Chin­chilla.

Ian has spent some 20 years in­volved with Scouts and is a group leader.

Thanks Ian for your talk and we wish you suc­cess to get the Scouts go­ing again Chin­chilla.

Ian would be happy as pres­i­dent Julie pre­sented him with a cheque for $1000 from the Ro­tary Club for the Chin­chilla Scouts. No doubt this will be of great ben­e­fit to the lo­cal group.

Again this is Ro­tary help­ing the youth in our area.

Don’t for­get the Ro­tary Ball on June 28.

It is great to see the Probus Club go­ing from strength to strength with more new mem­bers in­volved. It is a club with no fundrais­ing, good speak­ers and good trips.

It keeps you young, you make new friends, and have plenty of friend­ship and fel­low­ship.

Some Ro­tary book­lets were dis­trib­uted to businesses in Chin­chilla.

When you are fin­ished with them or don’t want them any more, please re­turn them to the Ro­tary Club.

Thanks to Ro­tary’s unique vol­un­tary struc­ture and the high eth­i­cal stan­dards of its mem­bers, it has be­come one of the most ef­fi­cient or­gan­i­sa­tions world­wide. This en­ables Ro­tar­i­ans to deliver as­sis­tance to those who need it.

A joke: A mo­torist is driv­ing down the road and he hits and kills a calf.

Thanks to Ro­tary’s unique vol­un­tary struc­ture and the high eth­i­cal stan­dards of its mem­bers it has be­come one of the most ef­fi­cient or­gan­i­sa­tions world­wide.

The mo­torist went to the farmer and told him what hap­pened and asked what the calf was worth.

“It’s $200 to­day but in six years it would be over $900, so $900 is what I am out.”

The mo­torist wrote out a cheque, handed it to the farmer and said, “Here is a cheque for $900, it is post-dated six years from now”.
