The Bilim Ian and Mel brought back from Nondugl in Papua New Guinea. They gave it to us to us to use as a fund-raiser, which we will do. The funds will go back to the Nondugl project. Ian held it up to his nose saying "it still smells of New Guinea" and it does have a gentle dusky musky smoky scent.
OK OK so the first picture is a standard "Firing Line" pose. Here's Bree modelling the still quite paint free Dayglo orange vests.
We went back to Throsby Creek to complete what we couldn't get done on Graffiti Removal Day Oct 20th. Bushfires and rain have stopped us since then.
The commissioned art piece next to the creek has been defaced - so sad and just a mean thing to do. New tags on the walls we painted have been removed again. Damian gave us a lesson in how domestic-use things like Aerogard can take off reasonably fresh graffiti - as he showed us on the Aldi sign next to the switch-boxes which are now fresh and clean. We located new places to clean and paint and also checked out the ugly spots between the Mayfield Bowling Club and the Mayfield Pool. Lunch at Webb Park - after which Howard and Diana in full fluoro vest regalia went to do some shopping and PR at Forever Christmas
Page 15 of the November 2013 issue of The Leader. Pat on the back to Patrick who sent a media release about the new RC Hamilton.
"Known for its great service to their local communities Rotary clubs are often seen as "Old hat", "Stuffy", "Dull". The new Hamilton Rotary Club is shaking that view. Keeping the values that Rotary is known for and doing it in a fresh new way by targeting the 20 to 40 year old age bracket and accepting anyone 18+ years who is in good standing in the community with a community focus.
Fast-paced Breakfast meetings will be a hallmark of Hamilton Rotary with social media based communications at the heart of its major source of group communication and regular meetings starting at 7.15am and gone by 8.30am.
For those who want to connect with other community-minded people and be involved in local and international service projects and be entertained by great Guest Speakers, the new Hamilton Rotary is for you.
Meets at the Gourmet Goose, 37 Beaumont Street, Hamilton, every Wednesday morning, go to https://www.facebook.com/HamiltonNSWRotary.

A "Placemaking" grant from Newcastle City Council has made a special celebratory event on Ash Island Hexham possible. The Kooragang Volunteers Landcare group will have a marquee, a PA system, chairs and tables to make the event sheltered and comfortable for everyone, with spaces and places for story-tellers, artists, displays and more. There will be a special place for children, and others, to plant their own special plant.
