Weekly Update - Lend me your ears







The speaker said ...

“My wife is softly spoken.” ”My husband mumbles.” “The kids speak so fast.” “I can hear perfectly if it’s just you and me.” Comments like these are sure signs that one’s hearing is deteriorating said Bay Audiology hearing specialist Christine Ouelette. Read more about what she said here.


RYLA - We are now looking for candidates for this programme. If you know of anyone between the ages of 18 and 24 who would be a good candidate please contact Graeme Blick.

Our Marvellous Chef - Jack was the Chef at the Mana Cruising Club when we first arrived just over five years ago. Tuesday was his last night as he is leaving the business and the Cruising Club. Jack and his team have produced wonderful meals. His ability to cook meat is the best that most of us have tasted and by now he knows the preferences for most of us so, as he slices the meat, he is able to tell us what piece will suit our taste! The desserts have been to die for! Jack, and the team, we thank you. We will miss your willingness to support us when we have up to 100 people at special events. We will miss the quality of your food, for feeding us so well, and most of all we will miss your smile. Thank you so much from all of us at the Plimmerton Rotary Club.
