Four of our members attended the Quota International Convention in Brisbane in July meeting for Quotarians from around the world. Quota is about service to the community but it is also about fellowship and fun both of which abounded at the International Convention.
All over the world Quota members have projects that make a difference in their communities. Here on the Clarence, members are proud to present ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ certificates and book vouchers to students in local schools. In the past few weeks RAKS have been presented by president Wendy Smith to Jade Gallagher at Maclean Public School and by member Lin Buckpitt to Mekaylah Holcroft at Lawrence Public School. These awards have been enthusiastically received both the students and their parents in recognising their kindness to others.
Don’t forget to put Saturday, October 1 in your diary. That’s that date for the Quota Craft Fair at Yamba Bowling Club from 9-4 (and remember it is for just one day this year).
The raffle for the Fair will support Disabled Surfers in the area. Quota members will be at Yamba Markets on Sunday, August 28 selling tickets for the Weber BBQ and will also have a Father’s Day ‘Seafood & Beer’ raffle on the day.
For more information about Quota and its programs Wendy on 6646 9883.
Quota meets at Yamba Bowling Club Boardroom at 5.45pm on 2nd Tuesday of each month. After the meeting we enjoy dinner in the Norfolk Bistro.
