This weekend Timo had a double treat.
For ANZAC Day, he participated in a re-enactment Dungaree March. The marchers left Windaroo Valley State High School (representing Warwick) just after 7.00am and travelled via Windaroo State School, Mt Warren State School and the Beenleigh Historical Village (representing other towns passed through by the original marchers) to Beenleigh (representing Brisbane).  The students then led the parade through Beenleigh.
Rotarian Heather marched from the start, and President Gary joined up at the Historical Village.  PP Brian drove the Salvation Army bus to pick up any stragglers.  None eventuated, but all were happy that the bus carried the water and apples.  Thanks to Rotarian Lyn, and the Salvation Army, for the use of the bus.
The starting marchers, led by the Windaroo Valley State High School drummers, head towards their first stop at Windaroo State School.

On Sunday Timo got to demonstrate his cooking skills at the annual "Tastes of the World" at Wacol.  This was conducted by the District Rotex group in conjunction with the District YEP committee.  Each of the inbound students had a small stall about their country and had also cooked a traditional meal from their home country.  This gave prospective outbound students an opportunity to learn a bit about countries they may be interested in exchanging to, including their food.  Approximately 60 attended, including past exchange students, host parents and prospective students.
The students have put together a recipe book for all the dishes served.  At $5.00 each they are a bargain as they also have a short introduction to each of the students.  The money raised from the sale of the books goes towards Shelterbox.  See Brian on Wednesday night if you want to order a book.
