Con­grat­u­la­tions on 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary

Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

HELLO and wel­come back to our col­umn.

We hope that your week was fan­tas­tic?

There was no din­ner meet­ing last week as it was the usual first Tues­day of the month which is our so­cial meet­ing but we all at­tended the 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions for Bernie and Ruby Wash­ing­ton, which was held in the beau­ti­ful gar­dens at Ru­bern last Satur­day.

It was a lovely cel­e­bra­tion with lots of fam­ily and friends at­tend­ing.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Bernie and Ruby and best wishes for many years more.

Did you know that as Ro­tar­i­ans, we recog­nise World Po­lio Day on Oc­to­ber 24 which is the an­niver­sary of the birth of Jonas Salk, the sci­en­tist who cre­ated the vac­cine for po­lio?

On this day, Ro­tary spot­lights the cam­paign to end this disease world­wide and this year the Bris­bane City Coun­cil will light up both the Story Bridge and Vic­to­ria Bridge.

Ro­tar­i­ans will march on the Vic­to­ria Bridge in po­lio “red” shirts, cel­e­brat­ing and show­cas­ing our hard work for the past three decades.

They are gath­er­ing at 5.30pm at the Bris­bane Trea­sury Casino steps for the march.

Hope­fully, it will be on the lo­cal news and you may be able to see some of the high­lights.

Don’t for­get the mar­kets are on this Sun­day due to some­thing else on the reg­u­lar week­end.

Ro­tary will be there to pro­vide your favourites which now in­cludes the mince rolls.

These are prov­ing very pop­u­lar and you never know what we may in­tro­duce to the menu.

Hope to see you! Don’t for­get the Mel­bourne Cup Sweep tick­ets are sell­ing fast and you have to be in it to win it.

Also, you should join us for the draw on Mon­day night, Novem­ber 5, at the RSL.

We will have some en­ter­tain­ment planned and hope you can join us for a fun night?

Be­fore I say good­bye for an­other week and wish you well, let me leave you with a rid­dle.

What do you call peo­ple afraid of Santa Claus? “Claus-tro­pho­bic!”

Ok, time for me to go. Talk again next week. Bye for now.
