For those members and guests who attended last Tuesday's meeting we were entertained by PP Iain with his travels to South America earlier this year with Sofia.  Unfortunately, our scheduled speaker, John Baird, had to cancel at late notice due to health reasons and Iain stepped in - well done!

Our involvement as host club with the "World Festival of Magic" is gaining pace with the start of the marketing campaign to business contacts in the Northern Sydney region. Show tickets are offered to these businesses to purchase and are then distributed to special needs children and their families to attend the event on Saturday, 10 November at the Darling Harbour Theatre ICC.

PP Iain, Ken, Ted and myself attended a dinner at the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron held on Thursday night to celebrate Rotary Club of North Sydney's 90 years of service to the community.

Our PP Ted Sheedy, also a PP of North Sydney Club gave us all a wonderful speech relating to his over 3 decades of involvement with Rotary and was surprised to see himself in a promotional video produced in 2003 - we all agreed Ted hasn't aged at all!

Next Tuesday we will hear from Annabelle Chauncy about her "School for Life" experiences in rural Uganda.
