Stan spoke about leadership qualities and self development and shared some great AFL insights. I found this particularly impressive, given he coached the team I follow, the MIGHTY SAINTS!
Robyn facilitated a seminar about dealing with adversity and achieving the most from life. This was a message delivered exceptionally well, given her involvement in numerous charities, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Although a heavy message at times, Robyn inspired us when talking about some of the ‘wishes’ she has been involved in granting. This included the story of a young boy who wanted to go fishing on a boat and actually catch a fish. The Make-A-Wish Foundation made that happen alright ... They had a diver under the boat with a bag full of them! Each time that rod went in, out came another fish. How amazing!
Some of the team activities we participated in included rock-wall climbing; high wire challenges, up in the air 10+ meters, making it from one point to another on large cables (harnessed in thankfully); obstacle courses and spending an afternoon at the Quite Cone, practicing some relaxation techniques. There were too many tasks to name but they all held a common goal – achieving great outcomes through team work.
All in all, this was an action-packed week which I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt from. It is great to see the Rotary clubs collaboratively put on such a great event and invest in young Tasmanians. If you ever get a chance to attend – take it!
I’d like to thank the Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise for sponsoring me to attend this event.
Join us in the Training room this week to hear Kurtis Alexander who is a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards participant. RYLA is Rotary's leadership training program for ages 14-30. Guaranteed to be great - go Kurtis!
Our member minute will be from Janice Devine.
We have a busy week for the club. Members will be attending the District Forum on Wednesday 18th July at the Grand Chancellor from 6pm. Some of us will also be going to the Earls Art Centre on Friday night to see Fawlty Towers...can't wait for the "Basil!"...and "my little piranha fish" to make their appearance (and that is not at dinner before hand!).
Remember, don't be a frozen chicken this week, defrost in the LAC Training Room with RC Tamar Sunrise from 7am!
Join us in the Training room this week to hear from Arthur Talbot who will talk to us about the Residential Services for the Intellectually Disabled. We will also have our 'Member Minute' from PP Marcus Courtney.
Caro Brown has also alerted us to the fact that she is riding with her husband Chris 1,340km along the Danube in August 2012. As part of this, for each kilometre they cycle, they are seeking donations to support the Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise $20 Meal Club project.
Share the link around your family and friends, and encourage them to share their journey (and also support the Club's fantastic $20 Meal Club Project). Click on the link below:
