District Governor John McKenzie Visits Wollundry 
President David Pyke is pictured with Fayah McKenzie and District Governor John McKenzie.  
President David introduced DG John.  John started his speech outlining that he would talk about the Rotary International Strategic Plan and how it is linked to District 9700, some of the projects that he is interested in and then end with a lead up to the District Conference next year.
President's Report Aug 6
Thanks to all for looking after Wollundry whilst I was on sick leave. That’s travel sickness leave. A big thank you in particular to James Hamilton and Paul Milde.  I would like all members to wear their name tags so I am not put in an uncomfortable position where I forget your name.

The golf and The British Open were highly successful.   I however, could not find a Rotary Club to do a makeup but I did find many Irish pubs as an alternative.   A big welcome to DG John McKenzie and wife Fayah.  Also to visiting Rotarian Basil McMullen, Tom and Faye Dawdy for the US and to Maria Egan who is hosting the Dowdy’s.  

We have an exchange student for the 1 st half of 2020, hosted by two non-Rotary families but families who have recently had their children enjoy Rotary Exchange.

As you are aware, whilst I was away, my identity was compromised at Beyond Bank and the account for which I was a signatory was cleaned out.  This was not a Rotary account. The matter is now in the
hands of the Police.

The committee lists are complete and will be sent out today. Should anyone require changes please let me know?

We have a Board meeting next Monday at 5.30 pm so please have your reports to the Secretary ASAP.

Vale Auntie Flo Grant
We sadly report that Auntie Flo Grant passed away on Tuesday 6th August, 2019 aged 83.
Auntie Flo always declared that she would like to be remembered for the life she had led and certainly hers has been a life of achievement, leadership and inspiration.
Auntie Flo was closely associated with Rotary being appointed an honorary member of the Wagga Wagga Kooringal Rotary Club and recognised throughout NSW and ACT as Rotary Inspirational Woman of the Year in 2015. Kooringal Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Lane Cove supported by a grant from Rotary International completely refurbished the Yal-Balinga-Da Education Centre which provided training in Wiradjuri language and culture, producing the first Wiradjuri dictionary.
Our Meeting August 6th

Welcome to our Guests

President David Pyke opened the meeting, welcomed the District Governor, John McKenzie and his wife Fayah.  He also welcomed visiting Rotarians from California, Tom and Faye Dawdy and visiting past Rotarian Basil McMullen, father of Tim McMullen.

Rick Priest Reads a Rotary Poem

Rick Priest was given 25 seconds. He read a Poem about Rotary that was well received.


Expression of Sympathy

David Benn came to the podium and informed members that Burmo lost his cousin suddenly on Sunday.


Sergeant Phil Burgess

Phil Burgess came to the podium and said that he has been a member of Wollundry for 13 months and has been on the receiving end of the Sergeants.  He said that he has a photographic memory and remembers every fellow and every comment but he what he will say today will be with “loving intent”. Phil said that it is good that Paul Milde is carrying the box and since Paul is in charge of clothing and Phil has been waiting for 13 months for a Sloppy Joe! He fined all supporters of the Australian Cricket Team to much booing. Richard Baguley fined for selling his property. Phil told an Irish joke in the honour of David Pyke. 

Paul Milde read a cross fine from Craig Bromley for Frank Fuller.
