This week we hear about a "Critical Incident"....its called Myrtle Rust. Caro Brown has been working on the incident with other colleagues within the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment. What is Myrtle Rust, why is a critical incident? Why do we want to eradicate it, how do we respond, what can you do about it? Find out this week!
Member's minute is Leigh Hart.
Its Agfest this week. A big thank you to Toni and all members and friends who are volunteering for the Gate on Saturday. We wish the Committee all the best for this great Northern event. Saturday looks like it is the only day it won't rain (lucky us) but make sure you wear your boots and have some good warm clothing handy!
For those who are busy with the Cocktail Party Planning, it is a thursday morning meeting for you at Hotel Launceston 7am as well!!
We had a great pop up meeting with old and new faces attending. A fun casual night was enjoyed by all. Thanks to Susan Nolan for not only organising the Pop Up Meeting, but also being our Club Captain for April.
Our exchange student Louis headed off on his Mainland trip. No doubt he will have some wonderful stories when he heads back to Tasmania.

Words from our International President on Nepal
We express our profound sadness and extend our sympathies to all those affected by the devastation resulting from the 25 April deadly earthquake in Nepal. Rescue missions and emergency aid continue to arrive in Nepal for the 8 million people impacted by the massive 7.8 magnitude quake.
As we mourn the thousands of lost lives, Rotary joins many international agencies in providing immediate relief to survivors and mobilizing our expertise to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
