Club Visit - DG Tony Coleman and wife Liz

Wednesday, 20 Sep 2017

District Governor Tony Coleman and his wife Liz visited our club last week. Tony met with the Board before the dinner meeting and obviously was our guest speaker for the evening. He ran a video showing a speech from RI President Ian Riseley. DG Tony asks that we all make sure that we promote Rotary as much as possible. We are out there in the community doing good things but we must tell people about the good Rotary is doing.  He highlighted the importance of remembering that we also all have life outside of Rotary. His aim this year is to keep a steady ship.

John Glover Society- Mark Wells

Wednesday, 13 Sep 2017

Mark Wells from the John Glover Society spoke last Thursday evening about the importance to Tasmania and especially Evandale, of the Glover Prize which is an annual award for a landscape painting of Tasmania.

The project was initiated in 2004 by the John Glover Society, a group of enthusiastic people from Evandale. The prize is named after painter John Glover (1767-1849) who was an early colonial resident of the plains.

Mark gave us an excellent insight to this event and the topic was very well received by all in attendance.

Thank you Mark and we look forward to the continuing success of this award.


Rotarian behind the Badge - Nicholas Butler

Wednesday, 06 Sep 2017

~Considering the short notice for this talk and being up to the wee hours of the morning in preparation (so we were told), we learnt a lot about this Rotarian.
We found out that his first car was a VW beetle somewhat modified and it was lucky to do 60mph downhill with a wind behind.
The first Butler landed in 1822 and was a lawyer and this occupation carried forward for another six generations with Nic’s father being the last in this profession.
He told us about his exploits in sailing, viticulture, winemaking, fishing and aquaculture.
He finally told us his latest venture is to find the source of the Tasmanian Nile.
These presentations by Rotarians always give us an insight into the life of our members and are always well received.
Thanks for a great talk Nic, which from the banter around the tables, it was obvious everyone at the meeting really enjoyed.
