Allan talked about the Assembly of March 15, a second round of suggestions on how the club can improve in the categories of membership, projects, Balinese members, financial transparency and perceived conflicts of interest.

Exec Scty Marilyn reported that the club will sponsor two Rotoractors to the District meeting in Bangli.

Judith delivered the Rotary Minute.  This is Rotary Literacy month.  Our club has donated many books to schools over the years and the Rotoractors have a mobile library project.  She donated a dictionary to Ping to take back to North Bali.

The club’s new bylaws have been distributed to the memberships; any comments should be passed to SAA Bruce who is managing the project.  We need replies within 1 week (by 23 March 2015).

Scty Cat talked about the transmission of rabies in Bali and advised people to get the pre-exposure vaccination series.

Rtn Sue Bishop talked about their project Rumah Sehat, a clinic which she and her husband started in 2008 following a chance meeting with Rich.  With Ping’s help the clinic and 5 outposts are now reaching about 1500 people. Periodontal disease is common here. Education targets preventative dentistry, health and hygiene. They also work with the toothbrushes and paste, supplied to school children.  They are now building a new clinic which will have equipment with money raised by dentists in Australia.

There was no raffle tonight.
