Last Tuesday our speaker Jo Hegazy informed us of the innovative work that the Cochlear company has achieved since 1982 and the fact that over 250,000 hearing impaired people worldwide have received their implants.

 

On Thursday 12 December myself, Allen, his wife Sue and Jaz travelled to Stuart Town Public School which is located approximately 300 kilometres from Sydney.  We attended a Book Giving Assembly at the school and presented each of the students with a satchel of books they had chosen. The number of students enrolled at the school is currently 18 and it was wonderful to see the delighted children receiving their books.  Our club has been associated with the school for a decade through the Books in Homes Australia program.

 

That evening we attended a Drought Information Evening at the Molong RSL Club which was arranged by the Molong Rotary Club.  Over 30 people were present and we heard from a number of speakers from the local Cabonne shire district.  It was indeed humbling to hear from them as they informed us of how the drought is affecting those on the land, those in residential towns and villages, the retail industry and what impact such is having on their health and aspirations.

 

Through a project initiated by the Rotary Club of Caringbah www.adoptatown.org.au we have noted our support of Molong.

Further information on how this support will be achieved will be discussed and we should be able to confirm how we can assist by early 2020.

 

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 7 January so I would like to wish all our club members and Rotary friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
