Weekly News for 24 Nov 2017
Last week, we heard a very informative presentation from Helen Zwicker, CEO of the Kiama Community College. The College is a not-for-profit, community-based centre for adult education and provides courses for a wide range of clients. Helen spoke of Vocational and Education Training courses in subjects such as beauty and haircare, Certificate 4 courses to train people for vocational opportunities in subjects such as bookkeeping as well as art/craft courses that allow people to make the most of their lives embracing creativity, teamwork and fellowship.
Kiama Rotarian John Kenny is Literacy & Numeracy Co-ordinator at the college while Rotarians Marilyn Jarret and Tonia Barnes volunteer to assist students who struggle with their learning.
Two Kiama Rotarians were recently recognised for their community service. Peter Maitland was presented with a special award by Member for Kiama, Gareth Ward MP, in recognition of 50 years of community service as a Justice of the Peace while Carole Johnston was presented with the Robert East Memorial Award for Community Service by Kiama Council.
These are five great examples of how Kiama Rotarians are making a difference in our community.

November is Rotary Foundation Month when we focus attention on the history and work undertaken by Rotary’s major humanitarian fund.
The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
The foundation celebrated its 100th anniversary earlier this year and during that time, the Foundation has spent over $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. The largest single project is its polio eradication project where 99.9 percent of all international polio cases have been wiped out.
We had a very enjoyable dinner with family and friends at Kiama Golf Club last week and had all hands-on-deck with Gerringong Rotary for the Kiama Car Spectacular in support of Melanoma research at the Showground on the weekend.
Next weekend we will run our famous barbeque at the Kiama Seaside Markets in support of our various humanitarian projects, including the Rotary Foundation. Drop by and enjoy a tasty meal while supporting a worthy cause at the same time.
