Passport club help out at Swim

Great to see Brian Wallace and team at the slstice swim helping out. Here's a isof new members, and a special welcome to Anna who is taking up an official role as Chair of the Satellite club. Welcome.

Bob Lane, Steve Newton and Satellite Club members added to club. Membership Soars.

On Friday we welcomed back Bob Lane to the club as a Friend of Alex Rotary. Bob is a past treasurer and all round good guy, who is also an avid swimmer, and a Dragons fan (apparently?). Bob is joining as a friend as he is supportive of Rotary and wants to join a movement that makes a difference to our community, and being a "friend of Rotary" is a great way to express that. Bob is hoping to make our winter breakfast meetings, and maybe a few of the summer meetings when the early morning swim is off the table.
The other member we welcomed (he never really left) was human dynamo Steve Newton, who makes the drive in from Beerwah every Friday morning for our breakfast meeting. Steve is a "middle aged surfy chap" who loves his Kombi's and was pillar of strength in last years "Surf Show and Shine". 
We also welcome members from the Sunshine Coast satellite club as members of Alex Rotary, Les Walsh, Brian Wallace, Craig Humphrey, De'Anna Delaney, Anna Myr, Cherri Deutschmann, Marg Fitzpatrick, and Ray Burton. 
So our membership is SOARING, and its great to see the numbers holding firm over winter when its a bit harder to get out of bed in the morning..for some of us anyway.
