President Glenda’s Notes - 15th February 2018

Wednesday, 14 Feb 2018

Hello Rotarians, 

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
