Calpac Capers
Annual Changeover Dinner 2021
With special guests DG Neil Black, ADG Wendy Gilson and a number of other guests including partners and friends, we welcomed Greig Lee-Archer as President of the Rotary Club of Caloundra Pacific for the 2021-22 year.
President Greig intends to maintain the club's traditional fundraisers and projects and looks to the future for new endeavours worthy of Rotary's attention.
One focus, of particular interest of the President, is the prevention of domestic violence. With other Rotarians, President Greig intends to further progress current initiatives such as 'Reset'.
We thank previous president Evelyn McCorkell and her board and their efforts throughout the Rotary year.
Cheryl Leddy and Evelyn McCorkell were both awarded Paul Harris Fellow recognition for their contributions to Rotary and their community.
A big thank you to photographer Robyn Hills, MC Peter Hovey and powerpoint man Ken Hinkly.
Joke of the week
  1. A man walks into a library and asks the librarian for books about paranoia. She whispers, "They're right behind you!"

  2. Want to hear a roof joke? The first one's on the house.

  3. What should you do if you're attacked by a group of clowns? Go straight for the juggler.

  4. Why don't koalas count as bears? They don't have the right koalafications.

  5. A cement mixer and a prison bus crashed on the highway. Police advise citizens to look out for a group of hardened criminals.

"Some people eat snails. They must not like fast food."
