Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

GREG West ad­dressed the club at last week’s Ro­tary meet­ing and gave us an up­date on what is hap­pen­ing with Toowoomba and Su­rat Basin En­ter­prise which is also known as TSBE.

Greg told us about their aim to build sus­tain­able com­mu­ni­ties and en­sure the growth of the local area. Thank you for com­ing to our meet­ing, Greg. It was a very in­ter­est­ing talk and we hope that you will come along to a meet­ing again shortly and give us an up­date on what is hap­pen­ing.

Two of our mem­bers at­tended the District 9630 Changeover on Satur­day night. Our new Ro­tary District Gover­nor El­wyn Hodges was in­ducted and we are sure that he and his wife, Al­li­son will en­joy their very busy time for the next 12 months. El­wyn and Al­li­son will be at­tend­ing our Changeover on Au­gust 1.

It is al­ways very busy at this time of year as this is when the ma­jor­ity of Changeovers hap­pen. Even lo­cally, Lions cel­e­brated their Changeover a few weeks ago and it will be Apex turn to hold their Changeover shortly.

More about our Awards Win­ners from last month. The Young Worker of The Year Award went to Kar­ing­ton Noth­durft for demon­strat­ing a strong work ethic along with a pleas­ant and pro­fes­sional at­ti­tude in all her work. Kar­ing­ton works at White Lo­tus Hair and Beauty. She is also a qual­i­fied aux­il­iary fire­fighter in her spare time. Con­grat­u­la­tions on your award, Kar­ing­ton.

I am very happy to an­nounce that Anna Dall­man was selected as our club’s en­trant in the National Youth Sci­ence Fo­rum. Anna will now go to Toowoomba for an­other round of se­lec­tions. And we wish her the very best of luck. We had sev­eral very good qual­ity en­trants this year and the judges had a very hard choice to make but well done to ev­ery­one who ap­plied. Please re­mem­ber also, that Ro­tary has many youth projects through­out the year and we would be happy for you to ap­ply for these also.

The Iron Lung is back home. We are very happy to an­nounce that the Iron Lung re­turned home last week­end and is back in its usual po­si­tion at the Chinchilla His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum. We must thank the mu­seum for the won­der­ful sup­port they gave to the Ro­tary clubs in­volved and we hope that you, our read­ers will visit the mu­seum shortly to see all the won­der­fully in­ter­est­ing ex­hibits there.

Quote of the Week:

“We can al­ways choose to per­ceive things dif­fer­ently. You can fo­cus on what’s wrong in your life, or you can fo­cus on what’s right.”

En­joy the week ahead and we hope that you found our col­umn of in­ter­est. Take care.
