Our club had an action packed meeting last week and most exciting of all we had a BIG welcome and induction for our newest member David Marszalek.
Gill and Mike Whitehouse thanked the club and host parents for supporting Louis for his exchange program. Daniel Rochford from RAW also provided an informative discussion about mental health support in our rural communities. Listening 'to our mates' is so important.
This week will be the last meeting that we have Louis with the club. So this week it is a club farewell and banner presentation. Louis will be our guest speaker as he reflects on his twelve months with Youngtown and Tamar Sunrise.
Our member's minute will be Lou Mason...hopefully she will have some humorous stories of her recent trip to Vietnam. Or...will we revisit Lamingtons?
This will be my final meeting as Club President for 2014-15. I am so proud of what a small but passionate group of people - you the members of our club - have achieved for our community over this time. You are an amazing bunch and I have been very privileged to serve you in the role of President for the year.
Thank you for all that you have done and I look forward to working with our new President Leigh and the Board for an exciting year ahead.

Toni and Janice are both on the mend from their recent trips to hospital and have enjoyed the flowers the club has sent.
