Rotary excited about move for Scouts return
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”.
