    The Four Way Test For Rotary, the Four Way Test is the cornerstone of all action. It has been for years, and it will be in the future. Of the things we think, say or do

    1. Is it the TRUTH?

    2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

    3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

    4. Will it be BENIFICIAL to all concerned?

    ROTARY GRACE O Lord, and giver of all good, We thank Thee for our daily food, May Rotary friends and Rotary ways Help us to serve Thee all our days

    Acting President’s Report What a great show of head gear we had last week for Hat Week. The meeting looked very colourful. I am reasonably sure everyone who attended was a Rotarian, but some of the “disguises” were so good that I can’t be 100% sure. Don’t forget to send me or Gordon your suggestions for community groups that deserve our support. The board will decide on recipients for funds raised by our club in coming weeks. If you are a club director or committee chair then you should be preparing your submission for the annual report now, so it is ready for Peter Merkesteyn next month.

  • 30th May 2012 Albury Hume Bulletin May is International Convention Month 3

    Club Welfare – Members and Families Comings and Goings. Peter and Margaret Merkesteyn on their way to England, Paris and Holland – we wish them a wonderful trip especially meeting up with family and old friends in Holland. We welcome back Julie Frauenfelder from Noosa. We envy Rob and Susan Burns cruising around Northern Europe. Terry Simmonds should also be heading back after a week on the sunny Sunshine Coast. Regular visitors and ex member and now retired Peter Isbister and wife Helen are planning some great trips. General Information President John keeping up his brave fight to overcome his illness and we all wish him well. I hope most members have or are planning to have a Flu injection as news is that it will be very catching this winter. Member Achievement. So many members giving their time and effort outside of Rotary to other needy community causes. I wish you would let me know about these to share with other club members. Birthday greetings to Tony Brandt and Bev Young

    Congratulations to Justin and Tabitha on their new arrival Seamus Joseph born on 17 May now our youngest member. Mum and baby both well ‘Hunter’s Moon’ by Barry H Young Members of Albury Hume Rotary Club - My latest book soon to be released Comments from the Editor of publishers Horizon Publishing Group – World Wide

    ‘Hunter's Moon’ is not only a remarkable tale but a beautifully constructed story with enthralling landscapes and vibrant characters that are sure to delight a broad range of readers. The standard of the narration is high and creates a rich and colourful world that attracts and maintains the attention of the reader throughout the novel There are only a few issues with the plot, as discussed with Barry, but apart from that the story is well conceived, well written and a joy to read. The editor – Horizon Publishing Group

    Fingers crossed I am in an exciting dilemma of my writing career as the awards of the “Spur” the U S A prestigious writing award of 50 years is being judged in June. “The Undefeated” has been nominated as finalist – humble - the first Australian author to be accepted. Club Officers Part 5 The Rotary Club of Albury-Hume is administered by a Board of Directors comprising the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, six Directors, Secretary and Treasurer. Board meetings are held each month to conduct the business of the Club. Committees are chaired by a Director and each committee

    concentrates on its particular area of service. Support and attendance at committee meetings are essential for the success of the Club. The Bulletin is distributed weekly to members and sets out Club duties (on a roster basis), Club notices, a report on the previous week’s activity. A President’s message. Joke of the Week A funeral service is being held for a woman who has just passed away. At the end of the service, the pallbearers are carrying the casket out when they accidentally bumped into the wall jarring the casket. They hear a faint moan! They open the casket and find the woman is still alive! The pall bearers are again carrying out the casket. As they carry the casket out towards the door the husband cries out “Watch the Wall”! Useless Information Everyone’s entitled to be stupid but some people abuse that privilege but not we Rotarians. Club Thought for the Week Courage does not always roar, sometimes courage is a quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow. Welfare Officer Barry .
