Last week we enjoyed listening to our guest speaker Fiona Weller from Moore's Hill. I noticed that all members were very quiet and taking in everything that Fiona talked about. I would like to thank Fraser Nuttall for choosing a great line up of engaging guest speakers - this is not an easy task.
August is Membership Club and New Club Development Month. The District's numbers are slowly declining and I, like many others, would hate to see Rotary disappear. As a Club we are going strong and we would like to see more new members join us, as each person brings fresh new ideas which adds excitement.
We are going to hold a “Bring a Friend Night “ on the 18th of August. This night will be an informal finger food night where we can just mingle with other Rotarians and friends and hopefully time permitting invite Rotaract along.
The State Membership Committee:
Garry Sargent (Chair) Rotary Club of Claremont
Ross Carlyle Rotary Club of Sandy Bay
Jacquilyne Kelder Rotary Club of South Launceston
Lydia Nuttall Rotary Club of South Launceston
Mike Kelly Rotary Club of Devonport North
Windeward Bound is now a District program under the Youth Services directorship. The Rotary Club of Hobart have ran this program for a number of years and having the expertise a number of their members currently make up the committee. We require interested Rotarians from the North & North West to join the committee to gain some diversity. This is a wonderful program with many positive outcomes. Please contact District Youth Services chair, Gill Whitehouse or Committee Chair Sarah Kay of the Rotary Club of Hobart if you are interested.
