Meeting 17 September 2019
We had a small meeting with 7 apologies, it was good to have ADG John Pillay back where he belongs as he takes a break from his wanderings.
Our Guest speaker was Rob Elliott who spoke on Camp Quality and the work it does for children with Cancer.
When cancer impacts people’s lives it isn’t restricted to one time and place. That’s why they provide support in four different areas of life. 
At home - Cancer impacts families financially as well as emotionally. Family fun days and Family Experiences give families the chance to reconnect and create memories outside of hospital. Our Kids’ Guide to Cancer app provides children essential information when facing the diagnosis of a loved one.
In hospital - We provide face to face support in hospitals with Family Liaison Coordinators, Child Life Therapists and our puppets – Kylie, Dean and Mel. Our Beads of Courage Program at Sydney Children's Hospital uses unique beads to track each procedure of a child’s cancer experience, such as blood tests, central lines, radiation sessions and surgery and kids proudly collect beads that tell their own courageous story.
At school - Our Primary School Education puppet show travels Australia dispelling myths and creating supportive communities for any child affected by cancer. Our special puppet shows bring laughter and positivity to schools and can have a big impact on children’s confidence.
Away from it all - For children growing up with cancer, and their families, the routine of hospital and treatment can become all consuming. Our Kids' Camps and Family Camps provide kids and their families impacted by cancer with a vital break to strengthen their wellbeing and boost their support networks. Our Retreats offer families a safe space to relax, unwind and spend quality time away during treatment, in remission, and in the case of bereavement.
and the esCarpade - The very first esCarpade took place way back in 1992, had 25 cars and raised $75,000. Fast forward to today and our esCarpadians have driven 60,000km’s, shared countless laughs and raised $18 million for Camp Quality and their work with children whose lives have been impacted by cancer. This year it commences on 19th October in Wangaratta, travels via Mt Gambier and finishes in Echuca on 26th October.
Our Club is proud to continue our support of this event by sponsoring “Kermit” (a green Holden) in the event. Jim Rudling presented Rob with donations from 2018/9 and 2019/20.
Our meeting finished with Tissa Perera taking out the Members Raffle Jackpot so next week we start again.

 What is RYLA?

The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) is a week-long residential personal development program for young people aged 19 to 25, which focuses on yourself, leadership and community. In Rotary District 9675, RYLA aims to: 
  • Give young people the chance to come together in a supportive environment to gain a better understanding of their own strengths and the unique qualities and abilities of others
  • Provide an opportunity for young people to develop a network of resources to facilitate their roles and development
  • Facilitate learning about teamwork, communication, motivation and to develop the leadership skills of young people through experiential workshops
  • Create a greater awareness of social issues affecting young people and
  • Demonstrate Rotary's commitment to young people.

When and Where is RYLA?

RYLA will be held at YMCA Camp, YARRAMUNDI – Sunday 5th January through Saturday January 11th.  Applications close 30th October 2019 (unless ALL 70x positions are filled).
RYLA assumes that 'leadership' is a diverse and varied concept and any one form or style of leadership is not seen as more important than any other.
Pride of Workmanship Night Tuesday 29 October 2019 at Mounties
Pride of Workmanship is an approved Rotary project instigated in 1975 by the Rotary Club of Pennant Hills.
The Pride of Workmanship Program enables managers and members of our community to help employees achieve the goal of job satisfaction, and publicly recognize them for their efforts.
Participating businesses can promote the Pride of Workmanship theme of "Do it once- do it well" throughout their organization and nominate employees worthy of recognition, not only within the organization, but the wider community. Nominees of the Pride of Workmanship Program are presented with a trophy in recognition of their achievements.
Objectives of the Program
To promote Vocational Service.
To encourage Pride of Workmanship in all vocations.
To provide employers with an opportunity to recognize employees who display the qualities worthy of an Award.
To encourage favourable employer/employee relationships and a sense of community pride in individual achievement.
To provide an opportunity for Rotary to be involved in the community, particularly the business community.
Nomination forms were emailed to all members on 7 August 2019
I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles. Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom. I give them pictures of my family, my dog and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch and doing what anybody and everybody does each day. I also listen to their conversations, give them the ’thumbs up’ and tell them I like them. And it works just like Facebook
I already have 4 people following me : 2 police officers, a private investigator and a psychiatrist. 
The Rotary Club of Liverpool Greenway is a sister club which we have supported throughout the years. This event is another occasion where we can show our support and to enjoy a fun night and all for a good cause. They are holding a Gala Event on 26th October 2019, themed “A Night at The Oscars”.
You are encouraged to attend this event with your partner, of course. Charlie and Val Hili  have already committed to attending, as have Peter and Margaret Beadle.
