President Brian’s Report No 26

Dr Ian Fargher spoke as our guest speaker on Friday and this just shows that our own club members can entertain equally with imported guest speakers. His topic, Forensic Accounting, was informative as well as entertaining. Ian revealed some of the work that he had done for his Phd., which he completed last Christmas. I won’t go into his topic matter as that will be in our Bulletin but I did want to point out that the Club has quite a number of members that have fabulous stories to tell us of their lives.

Our Changeover Lunch planning is all coming together and with fingers crossed, I believe the day will be one that will be up there with the best or that is what I hope for. I did not realise just how much work and organisation goes into this event, with invitations, presentations, gifts and food for the day but I am becoming aware, as each day leading up is teaching me.

I attended Corrimal Club’s Changeover Dinner on Wednesday night, which was quite enjoyable and well run (of course not as good as ours will be). There were four Paul Harris presentations, which included Paul Harris with three sapphires in those presentations and a unique presentation of a “Feather Duster” which is given by the President one year past, to the immediate Past President. No information was given for the use of the feather duster but you are to use your own imagination I guess. A full Board was presented to the meeting  as the last item and It was good to see that Corrimal Club was able field all positions. At one point the numbers for the new Board were seven female members and one male member, but this lessened to a ratio to seven female to three males at the end.

Have a safe week and I look forward to joining with you all on Friday.
Kindest Regards
Brian Ashe
