CENTRAL Coast Rotary has lost an icon with the recent death of popular Les Arndell at the age of 100.
After an introduction by former Waverley Rotary Club President Chris Prior to Jean-Pierre Engelen, Gouverneur of R.C. Armentieres, France, the 5000 Poppies team arrived in France to a wonderfully warm welcome by the Armentieres Rotarians at a “Cobbers Night” dinner in honour of those Australians who served and sacrificed for France in WWI.
On the following day, installation commenced at the Cobbers memorial (Australian Memorial Park) in Fromelles.
Some 13 volunteers from Australia joined with a group of local Rotarians from Bethune Artois and Armentieres who welcomed us with open arms and worked alongside us planting poppies. A number of Australians who happened to be in the area also pitched in, and the Australian Armed Forces also joined us
Elastlist - We sent an explorer to the Sunshine Coast for a fabulous family holiday getaway, and they managed to find some awesome playgrounds that the whole family loved.
What really stood out for me was the number of playgrounds dotted around. It felt like every couple of hundred meters there was another play area for children to play in. A lot of them were Rotary Playgrounds (Go Rotary Groups!) Congratulations Maroochydore Rotary Park
