Club Meeting - Tuesday 28th May - Joint Meeting with RC Sandringham
Paula from Cuffley Nutrition presented to us on the basics of digestion. She gave examples not only of the progress of how different foods impact our digestion, but also the impacts to our immune system, our hormones, our liver (detoxification) and our ability to remove the necessary wastes. Paula also talked about how the microbes in the gut affect the balance of the neurotransmitters in the brain impacting how happy (alert) and sad we feel. She discussed the foods we can use to improve our gut health, both restoring the good microbes and feeding them for longevity.

Club Meeting – Tuesday 11th June
We were visited by Alma Reynolds – District Governor Nominee Elect who talked about her upcoming appointment and her aspirations for 1921 -1922 year.
Farmers Market – Saturday 15th June
We experienced a cold but fine day Farmers Market, with a good turnout. The construction of the carpark didn’t impact the parking facilities, and everything ran normally.
At the end of the market I had discussions with RFM – Melissa with regards to the construction of the market – stall placement, stall mix and public seating, tables and cover. RFM are prepared to re-arrange the market to provide a better experience for the public and refresh the stall mix.

Volunteers Needed to Help Pack Medical Supplies To Be Sent To The Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital in Cambodia
The Rotary Club of Hampton had supported a project which involved volunteers from the Nokor Tep Foundation Australia, Hampton Rotary and other Rotary Clubs working at the Rotary “Donations In Kind” warehouse at Footscray in Melbourne, to sort and pack medical supplies, uniforms and linen. Based on the requirements for the hospital as determined and advised by the Nokor Tep Foundation Cambodia, some of these supplies were earmarked for inclusion in a 40’ container that was shipped to the hospital last year.
Another container of medical supplies will be sorted and packed throughout 2019 and details are now available of days when volunteers will be required to assist with this project.
Saturday working bees: 6th July, 7th September and 2nd November
