What's Happening at Maryborough Rotary?

 
 
Hi Rotarians,
Last week’s meeting was the Pride of Workmanship awards gala evening, to celebrate people in our community, held at the Maryborough Highland Society with the Theme:- "New Business - Young Entrepreneurs".
This covered new tradesmen and new business ventures in Maryborough and surrounding areas. 
Rotary also sees excellent opportunities to support this group of young business people with quality guest speakers at Rotary functions.  This should engage, encourage and enthuse these young entrepreneurs and hopefully see them as future Rotary members and leaders in the community.
More than 100 Rotarians partners, guests, family and friends witnessed 12 Pride of Workmanship awards being presented. Businesses are listed below.
Two special awards were presented to John Bartlett – Wattle City Meats and to Shane, Ian and wife Wendy and Tyson Mortlock – Mortlock’s Hydroponic Cherry Tomato Facility.
Key note speaker Vanessa Hicks – Executive Officer at Australian Health Services - Financial Management Association Bendigo gave an excellent overview of all aspects of small business – positive and negative and the benefits of marketing.
Congratulations to Chairperson Esther and her dedicated Vocational Services Committee along with MC Bryce for an exceptional evening.
All in all another great Rotary event.

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country.

Partners build community center and health clinic in impoverished Mexico neighborhood
Four years ago, Rotary member Moonyeen King decided to take action to help residents of the impoverished neighborhood of Tepehua, located in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, who faced daily struggles with crime, malnutrition, and limited access to health care. King, together with Susan Netherton and Gin Pelzl, fellow members of the Rotary Club of Ajijic, turned an abandoned building into the Tepehua Community Center. For its first year, the center provided a soup kitchen every Friday to feed over 200 women and children. That enabled King and her fellow Rotary members to gain the trust of the...
