From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
So last week we had the Club Assembly for those of you that missed the meeting.

It feels like we are on the right track after going through the goals and Strategic Plan from the last few years, which is promising for the future.
It has been a very busy weekend for me, managed to remove another 38 possums on Friday night then headed to the beach on Saturday morning on the bikes. Saturday night I found myself at the Blues Chiefs in a corporate box and then finished the weekend at LETS (leadership Elect Training) on Sunday. Tough life but someone has to do it.
Great to hear we have our RYLA spots filled thanks to Martin and Warren Mills too.

Quote of the week;
 (I read this last week while looking for quotes for RYLA and liked it.)
“The future needs passionate, happy, and confident young leaders willing to challenge the status quo and stand up for their convictions.” Richard Branson

See you all on Thursday,

Sincere condolences to President Jon, Tracey and family on the very sad loss of Jon’s Mum Connie on Tuesday 30th April. The thoughts and prayers of all members and their partners are with the Faber family during this difficult period.

Club Meeting Thursday 9th May. RYLA 2020 Presentation & Discussion.

Our club is the organising Club for RYLA 2020 and it is with the utmost of pleasure and confidence that we can announce that our very newest (yet to be inducted) member Mike Williamson has been appointed and has accepted the role of Operations Chairperson.
I know that you will all join me in congratulating Mike in this important role and like me will back him to the hilt in this important club responsibility.
At the risk of being overzealous I have asked Peter Ross our District Youth Chair, to come out to our club next Thursday night to give us a very broad rundown on his expectations. This will be vital for both Mike and the members in general and although Bernie Kay led the Club many years back in this project, the format and structure is quite different today.
Please attend if you haven’t headed off to Conference as this is an important discussion and will be very interesting.
See you Thursday. Cheers George
