The May Forum
Guest speakers at our May event were:
The Rotary Club of Carindale is far more than a service club and can be summed up in the following four words: Fun, Friendship, Service and Networking. The club welcomes like-minded men and women to join them for a programme of informative guest speakers, lively meetings, and social activities. They meet at 6.45am at Prescare Vela, Fursden Rd, Carina every Tuesday morning for breakfast.
Graham is the co-author of the recently launched book “Behind Our Wooden Cross” the story of the early history of St Gabriel’s Anglican Church at Carindale. The book tells the story of the beginning of the Parish at Carina in 1953 then into a wartime (WWII) hut moved from Kelvin Grove in 1958. Looking to further expand, a prime site was purchased at Carindale in 1978. This land came with a wonderful story of its history and bejewelled with marvellous trees which have been nurtured by the Church. Faced with interest rates of over 17%, the parish planned and built a new church at Carindale in 1991. The entire story is included along with personal stories of parishioners, the location of the old defence hut moved for redevelopment of the land and the support and nurturing provided to the local area by the Church through its long serving Priest Fr Maurice Collins, now retired. Co-Authors Tom Dobson and Margaret Cameron will also be in attendance.
Steve Minnikin MP
The State Member for Chatsworth will be talking about the Queensland Plan, which is an exciting long term, bipartisan strategic plan for Queensland and what it will mean for our electorate/community and for Queensland. When Steve is in attendance he often takes general questions from the floor too.
