What a big week, we had our District Governor Doug St Clair and his wife Sue, visit us. Doug spoke to us about how Rotary is Serving Humanity and that one good work at a time is all we can do. Doug also inducted our newest member Bill. Bill comes to us from Toowoomba. Doug pointed out that one new member could have that one new idea that could change the world. No pressure Bill :) 
 
 
 
 

 
This week, we heard from Ben, who recently attended the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) leadership camp. Ben spent the week learning important life and leadership skills and finding out more about himself. He admitted that at the camp he found out he was impatient and at times intolerant and closed minded. Through the team building and trust activities he learnt to be more open minded and tolerant. Ben has promised to share what he has learnt with others and ensure this enlightening experience is beneficial to more than just himself.
 
 

 
Rosie comes to us from the Lockyer Valley club and has a long association with Rotary. She was fortunate enough to go to the US on Youth Exchange a few years ago and that YEP year in Missouri began her appreciation for Rotary. Rosie was in the Lockyer Valley, in Grantham, when the floods of 2011 hit and it was through this all consuming experience and seeing the devastation and hurt left behind that Rosie helped the Rotary Club of Lockyer Valley to raise money for those directly affected. Rosie then became a member of the club. Rosie has a 3 year old son, who is the love of her life and she is currently on the District Youth Exchange Committee. Welcome Rosie.
 

 
Welcome to our newest member, Robert. It was an exciting night with Robert's induction. He is keen to give back to the community through Rotary and the club is looking forward to what Robert can bring on board.
 

 
This week, we heard from our Youth Exchange Program (YEP) student, David. He has come to Australia from Lucerne in Switzerland.
David has hit the ground running; helping out with car parking and the CTK Fun Run on the weekend.
He showed us pictures of his family, his mum and dad and brother, lots of skiing shots and the view from David's house is amazing.
At 16 he is an exceptional young man who speaks German, English, French and a bit of Italian. David filled us in on Swiss politics, national military service and much more.
