President's Message

Buill aon is a h-uile duine, 
Thanks to Franz for ghostwriting my report for last week - Tony Schwartz has some competition! [hmmmm... Thanks for the compliment. I didn't expect you'd be intimate with Donald Trump's writings, Mr President. But ghostwriting for Trump would require some considerably higher level of mental contortionism than I'm capable of... ☺ Ed.]
Another Saturday, and so it seems another Bunnings fundraiser. Final figures aren't to hand yet but if the first shift was anything to go by, it might not have been as hectic as the pre-Christmas BBQs. Thanks to those who volunteered - the usual suspects know who they are.

Tash and Adam are this week's guest speakers. I know we'll have a big roll-up to welcome them back.

See you Wednesday and enjoy your week.
Mitch Brown
This coming Wednesday: Tash Price and Adam Sheppard
We haven't seen them for a long time - our wheelchair bound members have become social media stars! I suggested the theme "From mere wheelchair athletes to Social Media Stars"...
Good fundraiser last Saturday
As President Mitch writes above, it's unlikely we beat the record set just before Christmas, but - based on my observations on the middle shift - still nothing to be sneezed at! A big Thank You! to all helpers on the day: Mitch Brown, Paul O'Neill, Ashley Symes, Geoff Croad, Ross Augustine, Andy Bell, Adrian Crowe, Mario Fairlie, Al Sirovs, Gus Miller, Charles Thomasson, Larry Murray, yours truly and - last but certainly not least - our "roving helper who was there all day, Ann O'Connor. 
Picture shows a happy family (the tall gentleman on the left is a visiting student from Sweden), whose two delightful little daughters were over the moon to receive one of Andy Bell's carefully and lovingly prepared sausages...

Inspirations - well, sort of... 110123
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get t the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it...
When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable.  It is designed to make its own people comfortable. Clifton Fadiman, US Author
