President's Message
From the Immediate Past President
What an interesting session for Shelley’s first meeting back in the chair.  David Cochran, the CEO of Harbison Care, gave us a talk and video presentation on a couple of great new initiatives they are adopting to engage the aged residents in some meaningful activity.  David recently took on the position at Harbison after moving his family from Sydney where he had a corporate law practice. He is passionate about being a leader in aged care for the local community.
The two innovative activities he has transplanted from overseas are Cycling without Age and Motiview With the help of the videos that can be accessed via the links below, he outlined the need for volunteers to pedal trishaws around the Highlands with a couple of the less mobile in the front seat, and to help set-up and manage a virtual cycling program using a state-of-the-art piece of static equipment imported from Europe.  Once he has scoped out the particular needs, we will be looking for volunteers to help him with these programs.

We are still waiting for the Council’s summary of the submissions they received after the public exhibition of the Draft Master Plan.  Thank you to all those who answered the call for last-minute supportive submissions.

At the Changeover, Richard Lane kindly fought off the after-effects of the ‘flu to sing the National Anthem for us.  This also gave him the opportunity to promote the big Awards Night coming up on the 27th of July at Gibraltar Hotel, Bowral.  Tickets are $60 each, but he has arranged a special discount for RCBD members, family and friends if we can put a table or two together for the night.  A request for additions to the group already forming will be circulated soon.
ShelterBox has reported on its return to Malawi following Cyclone Idai, which also affected MAFO shipments to Zimbabwe and Zambia. After the successful distribution of ShelterKits and accompanying aid items to 1,996 households affected by severe flooding caused by the cyclone in Malawi, a ShelterBox team returned to the country to evaluate the response. This evaluation focused on the village of Mwalija in Chikwawa. The aim was to understand the impact of the response in relation to ShelterBox’s objectives. Recognising that effective impact reporting should be clear and accessible, the project team decided to communicate the impact of the response through the production of an impact film and a series of portrait photographs. The team spent intimate moments with families two months after the disaster and talked about common themes relevant to the role of emergency shelter in supporting recovery - the space and place of home, access to livelihoods, community and knowledge and skills. 
ShelterBox has also deployed recently to a number of conflict areas including Syria, Cameroon and Ethiopia. In the last financial year ShelterBox reached its fundraising target of $1.1 million.

At this weeks meeting we will again hear from Lee Borradale who spoke to us recently about his life and work in education and beyond. During this talk he mentioned he has suffered from PTSD, and he plans to elaborate on this experience next week.  It will be of great interest for those who have heard this subject mentioned a lot recently in a variety of contexts, but perhaps never fully understood its implications for the sufferers.
