PARTING THOUGHT Steve
 
There were 3 people looking into a railway tunnel. The pessimist saw a gloomy, dark hole, whereas the optimist saw a light at the end of the tunnel. The realist saw a train with a light on coming towards them and the train driver saw 3 people discussing philosophy when they should be running away. 
What you see depends on your perspective!

Thank you to new members Yvonne and Margaret for giving such interesting talks
Yvonne Catherwood gave an entertaining talk about the trials and tribulations of being a school Principal at Longford Intermediate in Gore. No two days are the same with parents, students and staff to deal with, not to mention athletics day and council inspectors with checklists and never ending paperwork!
 
Margaret Laughton had just as interesting work stories. Originally training as a nurse, in recent years she has been working as an occupational health nurse in industry. She spent many years working in the mining industry and personally observed changes in health and safety procedures which sadly contributed to the Pike River Mine Disaster. Margaret now works in the forestry sector supporting occupational health and safety across Otago and all the way up to South Canterbury. When not at work, she is busy at home, working on their sheep, beef and deer farm.
 
We are very grateful to both Yvonne and Margaret for the diverse skills they bring to our Rotary Club. Thank you for your time, energy and participation.
