5th Wednesday Social Evening – Embassy of Ideas
A great turnout! 26 of us were welcomed by Sasha and Lisa. Had to take a photo of the pants planters! Many of us had not been there before.

The whole place oozes enthusiasm!The Embassy of new ideas is a Not for Profit, Volunteer Powered, Community Driven Organisation with a vision to cultivate a connected, creative and caring community.

A tradition in our club is to toast another club in the world.
It broadens our knowledge of the world of Rotary and gives us new ideas.
The Rotary Club of Brno City was chartered on 2nd September 2000 as the second club in Brno, with 21 members. The Club’s focus is mainly on charity and volunteering, supporting talented students and organising workshops and conferences on social topics in partnership with the Rotary Club of Prague International and Rotary District 2240 [Czech Republic and Slovakia]. The clubs are planting trees in Zambia, creating a sustainable ecosystem to benefit the community and the planet. To date 2300 trees have been planted. The club has also established a CCP program [care for premature births program] in September 2019. Approximately 100,000 newborns are born each year and about 10% are premature. Present practice is to separate them from the parents. This program is to involve contact with the parents in collaboration with the specialist medical staff to assist in transition to normality. The present practice is a result of the Soviet era.

How are You?
 
The Rotarians remembered October 10 “World Mental Health Day” by wearing a hat to their regular meeting on October 16.  Each member made a gold coin contribution to the Rotary “lift You Lid Project" that raises funds for mental health research.  The “Lift you Lid” collection boxes have been placed in most business houses in Alexandra and they will be around till the end of October, Mental Health Month.  Rotary extends a very special thank you to the community who have made a donation to support “Lift your Lid” as mental Heath has been identified as the most significant issue facing the community now and  in the future.

GUEST SPEAKER - PENNY PAXMAN
Penny is a local of many years and moved to Alexandra to run a guest house which is now Montserrat. She quickly became a member of the Tourist Association and the Library. When a job appeared at the Standard and, knowing the value of a good local newspaper, she snapped it up. It was founded by John Whitelaw and has changed over the years as public expectations changed. It is now more proactive with articles on local campaigns and views. Topics such as Kellock Lodge and the Black Spur have been given many columns. Readers also like the local sport, cattle sales and real estate pages. They particularly love the letters and ‘Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down’ columns. Photos of locals are valued and podcasts are available. A cadetship is on offer for a young person interested in written media.
More large print newspapers would be helpful to the elderly.
