President Glenda’s Notes - 15th March 2018

Wednesday, 14 Mar 2018

Fellow Rotarians, 

I wish to take this opportunity  to  thank Rotarian  Les Baxter  for  inviting some interesting  guest speakers to our meetings.  Last week we heard John Zeckendork speak to us about Mt Everest and he obviously  held everyones  attention as the questions were flying thick and fast.

After the meeting we held a Board meeting  where we discussed a few items. We approved to change our website to a more secure platform. The website will be redeveloped using WordPress. We will no longer archive our Bulletins, the members area will be smaller and all birth dates removed. The removal of birth dates will help to protect  your  privacy. In a nut shell this means that you will be able to view  our newsletter  on a mobile device the same as you would see it on a PC, it is more responsive as it drags out and pulls in to fit the screen.

The Board also discussed how we are going to fundraise to help support our projects locally and internationally.

We also agreed to support Care for Africa and  build a Women's  Enterprise Centre that will empower  women and assist them with projects which in turn will give them confidence  to help their communities. This centre will be run by the women and the time frame is over 2 to 3 years. In the coming weeks Rotarian  Di Butler will give a brief talk on this project. Our Fiji project is also starting to take shape. We have a team of 5 heading there in June.

Once again I look forward to  seeing you  all  on Thursday  evening.

Yours in Rotary 

President Glenda Iles
