President Glenda’s Notes-12th Sept 2016

Tuesday, 13 Sep 2016

Dear  Rotarians,
 Thank you for attending another great meeting. Our guest speaker Marie Bird spoke to us about Samaritans  Purse. This organization  sends a shoe box at Christmas  time  to under privileged  children overseas. You can access  more information  at www.samaritanspurse.org.au.
 The club has taken 30 boxes and will cover the postage cost of $9. I have an absolute  swag of exercise  books, rulers, rubbers and coluring pencils which I had donated to me. I will bring them on Thursday  evening.
 I would like to remind all Rotarians  that any correspondence  is to be sent to me and the board that involves either a personal nature or the club -  for example if you are wanting to organise a function or you think there is a community  project you would like us to be involved in.
 Ian Fraser will be talking to us on Thursday night about his trip to Havana, should be an interesting  night. (cigars Ian ��)
 Thursday 29th is "Bring a friend " and the Rotaract club will be doing a presentation.
 The Board has decided  that we will cover the cost of 1 Guest per person. We are hoping  to  show off our club this night so please get busy and start inviting you never know your guest could be our next new member.
 The Board also discussed having a Family Christmas  picnic rather  than having our last meeting at the hotel, more information  will come at a later date.
The PR and Fundraising team have invited all members to a social evening at Wangs Chinese restaurant  on  George St. DATE Tuesday  4th October TIME 6pm for 6.30 start -  partners are included and the cost is $30 per head. Drinks are extra. I did mention we pay an extra  $10 but this is deemed as a social event outside of Rotary and not  a fundraiser.
 I received an email from District  about the Rotary leadership program and to date the north and northwest have had a poor response. New Rotarians should  take the time to book in this worth while coarse as it not only gives you an insite into Rotary  but is great networking.

 Quote for the week
Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Thank you.
 President Glenda Iles
