President Edward Naus
President Edward welcomed Members, and our two very lovely guests from RC Bali Seminyak.

PP Wes
PP Wes advised that he finnnaaaallllyy remembered to bring a raffle prize, a book by an old friend, Richard E Lewis, “Bones of the Dark Moon”, a take on the fusion between modern Bali and the horrors of 1965 and what created the pre-conditions. (Raffle subsequently won by Dona).

PP Wes also reported that he and PP Risto had met with Kolewa to review progress on the GG, and the performance of the bridging program. He reported that the performance of one of the two hospitals who are working for Kolewa was not satisfactory, and the current arrangements need to be re-evaluated.

Rtn Sally Bellmaine
Rtn Sally Bellmaine, a frequent visitor from RC Bali Seminyak, reported on a recent trip to Karangasam, and a meeting with a desperately poor couple, who were working hard to rebuild their house and develop a pig and poultry business. The RC Yass from NSW Australia had provided seed funding but then withdrew, with the project work remaining incomplete.

The total remaining cost of finishing details to the house and chicken coop, and purchase of chickens, roosters, vaccines and chicken food is some Rp 8,000,000, of which Rp 5,100,000 has been donated by RC Seminyak, leaving some Rp 2,900,000 to be raised. Sally hoped that RCBND or its members might be able to provide support?

(NOTE: The Secretary Hugh Brown has undertaken to coordinate offers of assistance from individual RCBND Members, but the Board may also decide to assist. If anyone would like to donate to this worthwhile small project, please advise me directly and I will provide bank account details. This way we will avoid a tsunami of small donations. I will donate Rp 500,000 and others may wish to do something similar? Thanks for your support.)

Raffle tickets of IDR 500,000 were sold and the book donated by Wes was won PP Dona. Dona and other past winners owing prizes are reminded not to forget to make their contributions at forthcoming meetings.

Fines of IDR 20,000.- were levied for all and sundry offences.

There being no other business President Edward thanked everyone for joining today. The bell was rung and the meeting adjourned at 2:15p.m.
