Guest-Speaker: Cathy Cross

Cathy Cross was our guest speaker, who is a clinical nurse with Craniofacial Australia. Cathy, apart from providing us with information regarding the history of Craniofacial Australia and the amazing medical people who have made it such a well-recognised organisation, told us about some of the health conditions that the team encounter both during their visits to Indonesia and from patients who come for treatment at the RAH and WCH. She explained that whilst they could achieve some wonderful outcomes for their patients, they were also able impart much of their knowledge to eager young Indonesian doctors.  One can only be full of admiration for Cathy and her colleagues, who give so much of their time and themselves to help those in need.

Guest-Speaker: Emma Staltari

Emma Staltari was our guest speaker, and she told us a little about herself and how she started her business Dance SA in 2004 at the age of 17. It is based around young children having a good time whilst learning all types of dance. Having started off on her own in Yankalilla, her business has grown to 22 centres from Victor Harbor to the Riverland with 14 staff.  She has maintained her philosophy that each child should retain their individuality and with that in mind has started a program to help disadvantaged children, which is not necessarily based on economic disadvantage. A proposal to assist with “Elevate” program will be put to the next board meeting by a club member. We wish Emma continued success in not only her charitable program, but in her business as well; l as I am sure one will complement the other.
