At a President’s meeting I attended on the previous Saturday morning we were informed by PDG Bruce Larkin, our District 9685 Foundation Chair, that 143 new cases of Polio have been reported in Pakistan.  Rotary International has approached the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan to provide the necessary armed security squads to accompany the medical teams so they can continue their vaccination programs.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank those members who attended Greenwood Plaza on Wednesday, 26 February to collect funds on behalf of our Drought Relief program for the town of Molong. Thanks also to Allen Colburt for arranging this event and he advises that the sum of $553.00 was donated to this worthy cause. Well done!


Our speaker on Tuesday, 3 March will be Don Wilson on the subject – Winning the War on Waste.
