PEC Program for 25 Mar / Report from 18 Mar 2007

Meeting Programme for Sunday, 25 March, 2007:
Khun Werner Schmidt, will introduce a new bio-pesticide from Germany named "Permedan". This new generation of pest control does not smell, is non-toxic and safe for domestic pets, and kills only cold-blooded insects, such as flies, mosquitos, wasps, fleas, ticks, spiders, etc.
Werner will offer club members deeply discounted bottles and sprays of the insecticide outside the meeting room, on a table in the foyer, if anyone wishes to sample the product.
Our Master of Ceremonies this Sunday will be Brian, and Loran will host the Open Microphone Forum, so come and listen in at 2nd Rd's Grand Sole Hotel, and participate with questions and answers about nearly everything for living safely and legally in Pattaya!
The PEC's DVD and Book Swap will be in the front left of the meeting room. Bring in those books, magazines and DVD's that you've already perused, and swap them out for some new ones! Many thanks to PEC members Ray and Joyce Aldridge for their help with this project!

Our main Speaker today was:- Rotarian and Master Mariner, Captain John Blair, who told us about The Mobility Project In Chonburi Province. This USA-based charity has liased with the Rotarians in Chonburi Province to bring used wheelchairs from the US to Thailand. Most of these wheelchairs need only minor repairs, and are much needed by Thai people with disabilities who cannot afford a wheelchair. John related a very moving story of his visit to a child. This story appears, in full, in Pattaya People Weekly this week. After his talk, Captain John auctioned an old tennis racket to raise money for this project, the Members responded with gusto.
A special delight was in store for all attendees. Steve Watson, Managing Director of Pizzas 'R' Us, wheeled in enough hot pizzas to satisfy all. Steve's new expanded menu, in addition to his tasty pizzas, salads, burgers and fries, now includes Mexican Food, such as the Giant Burrito with Pork, and the Chicken Chimichanga, and has added Set Special Meals which can satisfy any appetite! I had a small slice - it was great!
