Hi Everyone,

ANZAC Day today - and a year where it is even more important to remember the sacrifices that have been made. Lest We Forget.

Thank you for all of the work you have all done - work that truly embodies this spirit. Also, thank you to the helping hands we had on top of Mt Ainslie last night for the ANZAC Vigil. We set up a large number of lanterns and then successfully packed them back up in the truck to go back to their new home. There were quite a few people there and the lanterns looked spectacular when they were lit and the sun set (I must bring along some photos).

I have had a few more donations for the End Trachoma Project. I will do a stocktake tonight and send out the result separately.

This week we have Dr. Stephen Utick coming along to the Commonwealth Club. He will be talking about the Rotary Environmental Program and has promised to bring along props, so it should be an interesting presentation.

Enjoy this lovely Autumn weather.

President Warrick
