Hello, Members and our Rotary Friends receiving this eBulletin.
Last Thursday a few of our members visited ‘Taldumande Youth Services’ and we sat down with their representatives and discussed what past help we have given them and what future needs and wants they have.  As a group of Rotarians, we always split our attentions between organisations in our local area who need assistance, and other overseas projects.
Please make a note in your diaries;

Our Last Monday Meeting on Monday 9th May Angelo's East Timor Trip 
RI Toast:   Ian toasted the Rotary Club of Kyiv  

Today, our member Angelo briefed us on his trip to East Timor. 

The highlight was a two-hour meeting with past & incoming President Jose Ramos Horte. The planned 15 min meeting went overtime with the president very supportive of the Rotary projects being done in his country.

Angelo continues to oversee the Rotary’s RYLA project which continues to blossom and now has a full-time secretary & office. RYLA is raising over $5000 per month thru projects like Chicken & Fish farms.

Angelo also attended a committee meeting which co-ordinates the 1200 volunteers & their projects in East Timor. Angelo made time to visit local Rotary clubs, including the ROMAC representative.  He intends to revisit in October
