Rotary District roles
 Governor-elect Jo Wilkin from Coonabarabran is seeking expressions of interest
for District positions in the next Rotary year. This is your chance to step up to
District level in Rotary and make a difference. See attachment to this email for
details.

First Friday drinks
This month’s First Friday drinks will be held at the Boardwalk Restaurant and
Bar, 75 Clarence Street from 5:30pm. Don’t miss out on a few hours of fun and
good Rotary fellowship.

Interact Week
Every 5th – 11th November, Rotary International celebrates World Interact Week.
Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 14 to 18.
Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support
and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.
Club membership varies greatly and can be single gender or mixed, large or
small. They can draw from the student body of a single school, or from two or
more schools in the same community.
Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one
of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these
efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas
clubs and learn the importance of:

   # Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
   # Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
   # Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
   # Advancing international understanding and goodwill

As one of the most significant and fastest growing programs of Rotary service,
with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact
has become a worldwide phenomenon with almost 200,000 members.

Vocational Visit
To help raise awareness of Interact in our club and to remind members that our
club is the sponsor of the St. Columba Interact Club, we have been invited by
St. Columba Interact to share breakfast with them this Friday November 6.
Please arrive no later than 7am for the usual 7.15am start.
The St. Columba School campus is located at 43-53 Major Innes Road. Enter
