TO YOUR LOCAL ROTARY CLUB
Guest speakers at our meeting on 15/7/19 were Penny Arrow and Celeste Boonaerts from Pearls of Australia, a company that supported our Shipbuilders Memorial Walk in May 2019. Penny and Celeste explained that the company has two bases, sub tropical pearls are cultivated locally in Broken Bay and tropical shells in waters 200 kms from Broome in WA.
The local operation is being developed with the opening of the pearl shed at Mooney Mooney. A two hour tour includes a guide through the shed operations and a visit to the pearl shell areas. The pearls are of the best quality and are distributed by two local retailers as well as superior stores in capital cities.

Our exchange student for 2018/19, Signe Vibjerg Lauritsen’s last meeting attendance was our club meeting on 1/7/19 before her flight back to Denmark. She was presented with certificates and flowers and emotional farewells from members. Signe also presented members with her signature cooking dish of profiteroles which was a great final gesture from an absolute model exchange student. Her twelve month exchange was an experience that endeared herself to all members and families. Signe attended all the exchange student activities, Kincumber Rotary events including club meetings, collections at the farmers markets at Gosford, a visit to Cambodia as a part of Rotary Save Cambodia work, a Sydney Harbour Bridge night walk during perfect Vivid presentation weather and presented a great powerpoint production of her year at the club presidential changeover in June, 2019. The picture shows President 2019/20 Sandy Hunt-Sharman presenting her with flowers.
