President's Message

Dear Rotary members and friends from Rotary.
if you have a birthday or anniversary have a great day.
It was great to be able to present a cheque to Jeremy Maxwell, the CEO of the Southern Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre, for the never ending tireless work they are doing. I THANK the club for supporting this worthwhile organisation.
District 9820 district calendar for period 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023 has been prepared in readiness for our incoming DG Paul Mee. I am, for one, on that calendar with a RAWCS position. I will assist as much as I can to support our DG.
Ailsa Hemphill is of on a four week holiday with her sister have a great time and come back safely.
I thank those members who are going to come to district assembly and learn more about their position in rotary.

Yours in Rotary Harry, take care…..

I can’t change the
Direction of the wind.
But I can adjust my
Sails to always reach
My destination.

Happenings at last weeks’ meeting
President Harry opened the meeting shortly after 6:30 pm. 
This was a ladies night and we pleased to welcome Sue Viney, Trudy and Agnes.
Secretary Chris referred to an email from the RI President in which stated that we should promote diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) to ‘allow us to do more meaningful work while engaging with people who know they’ll be valued for the qualities that make them unique.’
Chris asked if the members were getting the Rotary Down Under. It always contains interesting articles.
We heard about Lyn’s facebook page promoting a strange gardening day in May. Perhaps see Lyn for further details.
We were saddened to hear that Ray’s health has deteriorated slightly and that he is in hospital. As always, we hope that Ray’s condition becomes more stable and improves.
President Harry spoke about lending a Gazebo to another Rotary club. We are always willing to help! Training for office bearers is continuing. See Harry for further information.  Board members are asked to complete their reports promptly. 
Harry reminded us about the change over on Wednesday 29th June 2022.
Geoff gave the GIG this week on his trip to Tamworth for the Country and Western music festival. He said there were about 3000 acts over the week. It sounded like Geoff and Elaine had a great time.
Mike Smith spoke about his activities in the ANZAC ceremonies and that it is agreed to have a twilight market again this year.
Our guest was Jeremy Maxwell from the Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre. We were proud to be able to support their work with $7,200 this year.  They support those much less fortunate than us with food and material aid (telephone and electricity bills and the like), showers and laundry for rough sleepers and so on. Presently they are looking for tents and sleeping bags. It was pleasing to hear how the group worked with other charities for the benefit of the people they are supporting.
Jeremy thanked the club for their kind support.
I am sure the work of the Peninsula Community Support group pricked our conscience 
Later in the evening, Tim Moore dropped into the meeting. Tim, who was dining in the adjacent restaurant, spoke about the upcoming Rotary Convention in June at Houston.
