President Glenda’s Notes - 15th February 2018
Wednesday, 14 Feb 2018
Last week our club held a club forum. During this forum we had a few great suggestions which I will endeavour to follow up. Thank you to Rotarian Peter Mcbean for firstly chairing the meeting in a timely manner and also for sending thru a few old photos from an evening held for our children and grandchildren. I will talk with Rotarian Les Baxter to find an evening where we could hold this dinner.
We also held a Board meeting last week and during that meeting we as a Board accepted the resignation of Rotarian John Fardon, John is finding it hard to find the time to give with other outside commitments, we wish him well. We also terminated the membership of Denise McNeil.
Our membership is diminishing and therefore I ask you all to think about inviting a potential new member along to a meeting.
We also discussed a few ideas for fundraising as it appears that The Day in the Vines will not be going ahead due to time constraints.
Rotarian Lance Pfeffer and Rotarian Wayne Higgs are busy planning a cardboard boat for the regatta and thanks to Rotarian Terry Crawford we now have somewhere to build this vessel.
It is not long now before District Conference begins, remember to go onto the website if you wish to attend. We have been very fortunate to have a good number of members attend conference over the last few years, let's keep the numbers growing as we learn something new about Rotary and hear some amazing guest speakers and of course our exchange student Bjork Hansen will be attending and preforming for us all along with the other exchange students.
A reminder to all that we will not be holding a meeting on the 22nd February. We will be attending the Men's Shed at Youngtown on the Monday 19th February 5pm, then we will have dinner with the Rotary Club of Youngtown.
I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday.
Yours in Rotary
President Glenda Iles
