Iron Lung returns to Chinchilla after whirlwind tour
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.

“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.”
