From the President's Desk

Hi again fellow Rotarians,
 
We seem to be doing a lot of fellowship events lately, which has been fun. The brunch at Ardmore Café was no exception with another great turnout. Thanks Malcolm for organising this one.
 
Dave Glossop from the New Zealand Police was our speaker for Thursday. Hearing from someone at the coal face with a passion for our community was inspiring. It will be really good to get him back to speak on Afghanistan and his role over there.
 
This week we have our new member Paul Catlow talking about hearing loss and what that means for us so make the effort to come along (there may be more than one of us need to hear what he has to say I am sure).
 
We will miss Murray over the next while as he and Pamela are off on Thursday for a cruise from Rome. They won't be back until late November, but hopefully we will be able to keep up with their adventures on Facebook.
 
Last but not least my closing comment for last Thursday; “Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly and most underrated agent of human change.
 
Cheers,
Jon
 
A bit about us - Directors

 
As a new year kicks off, it is always good to get the lay of the land. So who are our 2018/2019 Board of Directors and what makes them tick? Take a look and you might just find out something you didn't already know.

Member Roger Goldstone share's his best 'picks' from the latest Rotary Magazines.
 
Following my trips to hospital it has taken a while to get going again. However, I must say the Rotary Down Under over the last few months has not enthused me as much as previously, not for the average Kiwi Rotarian. Having said that “The Klinginsmith” articles always makes good reading and I would suggest that the challenges in the June issue do give food for thought. We may not always agree in change but worth reading.
 
The other part worth a read is in connection with the Australia New Zealand Rotary Conference. This is in Hobart, Tasmania and for those that have not been to Tassie, it would be a wonderful opportunity to see an area of Australia that is well worth the visit for some time out.
