Hello, Members and our Rotary Friends receiving this eBulletin.
Last Saturday marked the first day of Bunnings BBQ Operations,where for the first time in fifteen years we have a Bunnings approved price increase of one dollar for the sausage sizzle,and although the day was relatively quiet due to the inclement weather,we still received a boost to our return which was great to see,and well done to all participants involved.What was interesting to see that the customers were very supportive of the increase and believed it was well earned and not before time.
So we put it down as a win-win.

ROMAC have just processed their first patient in over two years due to Covid. Baby Melenaite from Tonga has had a very large tumour removed from her rear side and is now recovering well,two months later . Our thanks are extended to all the ROMAC volunteers who have enabled this crucial surgery to occur and to the support we have received from the Canberra Hospital,which kindly made space for the baby in what has been a very difficult and busy time for all hospitals.
During our Meeting ,Wendy from Bangkok ,a Facebook connection organised by Swapna,joined in on our Meeting,while she was travelling in a taxi to the airport.
