9th July 2020, Issue 1

 
From the President's Desk
 
What a great turnout last week. It has been a while since we have been scratching for seats upstairs. As I said at the meeting, ‘the Salvation Army have a reputation for working at the bottom of the pyramid’. Thank goodness they do.
 

By all reports the team of Rotarians and Partners and helpers had a great session at the ERK pre-packing session last Thursday. George informs there is another pre-packing session next Thursday (6/8/20) and he is looking at a Saturday session on the 15th of August, for all those unable to participate during the week (of course those who do weekday sessions will be more than welcome as well).
 
George Wilson has just finished ANOTHER Dry July. (I think George is that busy he doesn’t have time to drink). I’m sure those of you who have inadvertently forgotten to donate to George’s efforts can still do so at https://www.dryjuly.co.nz/users/george-wilson-2 
 
Our congratulations to Tracey Faber on her PHF Sapphire awarded to her by District 9920. Tracey’s work with the Exchange Students is well known and appreciated by all involved (especially the students) and managing everything over the Covid-19 period took some doing.
 
 
Regards Allan

Tijn has arrived home
Tijn flew out on Singapore Airlines to Frankfurt on Thursday along with Austrian student, Luise.   
Tijn went with 49kgs, a load of face masks and a taxi waiting at Frankfurt to take him home (4 1/2 hrs). 
The insurance company paid for his flight and the taxi after his flight on Wednesday was cancelled, on compassionate grounds as his Grandfather is gravely ill. 
 
Tijn with his Mum and Dad safe and well at home.
We all miss you Tijn, please keep in touch.
