President Dona
President Dona, being the only female today, welcomed the members. She informed that prior to this luncheon a joint Community and Vocational Service Committee meeting took place. Karl-Heinz will brief the members later on details.

RC Seminyak will hold a Fund Raising Gala Dinner on 3 December at the Trans Hotel. Last year 14 Rotarians from RCBND participated.

Note: PP Edward F. stated that there is the strong possibility of him and his wife Ari participating in the RC Seminyak Gala Dinner although he will join the SKAL Bali lunch the same day. He was not sure whether he could make it in time out of there. [Edward F. later confirmed his participation]

Then the microphone was circulated by Dona.

PP Karl-Heinz Schmelzer
PP Karl-Heinz summarized the joint Community and Vocational Service Committee meeting, to wit:

  • All HIV related project running routinely.
  • Semi-annual reports on Clinic Amerta and breast milk substitute are expected in January 2017.
  • It is intended to invite Emily Rowe, an HIV-AIDS Consultant, in January to update the Club on the situation of HIV-AIDS in Indonesia.
  • We are in contact with several foreign Rotary Clubs inviting them to become partners in our intended new Cleft Lip and Palate Global Grant.
  • The new GG has been named RC Bali Nusa Dua Cleft Lip & Palate 2017. Funds under this new GG are expected to be available in September/October 2017.
  • The CSC will propose the Board to approve IDR 125,000,000 to fund CLP operations in the time between present and new GG.

PP Martin Smyth
Martin informed about the upcoming Christmas party which will take place on 17 December. The Conrad has to be ruled out now due to uncertainty over timely completion of renovations at the Spice restaurant. He has narrowed the choice to Marriot Courtyard or Amanusa whereas the Marriot is presently favored [The Marriot was later confirmed as venue].

Martin S. is also organizing the Orphan Christmas Party. Risto asked about the situation regarding donations. Basically each member need to donate IDR 1,000,000 to cover the cost of all goody bags.

PP Edward Naus
Edward spontaneously confirmed his contribution of IDR 1,000,000

Rtn. Hugh Brown
Hugh informed that though his wife Henny is still in Jakarta she is in contact with several organizations for Raffle prizes for the Christmas Dinner.

PP Wes
PP Wes gave an update on the present Global Grant. He reported 45 CLP operations conducted since July of which 25 are still unbilled. Most of the patients are from Kolewa. He estimated that latest by April 2017 all funds will have been exhausted. Axel, Karl-Heinz and he will have a meeting with Kolewa tomorrow, 2 December, to agree and align with them the number of operations from now until a new Global Grant is processed, approved and funds in hand.

Rtn. Adjis Budidjaya
Adjis said he will be contacting several hotels with regard to prizes for the Christmas Dinner.
