Our experimental breakfast meeting last Thursday at the Ibis Hotel appears to have been very successful with an excellent turnup including three Rotaractors. I have only had positive feedback.

Our next meeting at the Ibis is an evening meeting on Wed. Thursday 13th. Feb. from 6.15pm allowing people to buy a drink if they wish before commencing at 6.30pm and concluding at 7.30pm. Some of us will then have dinner at the Ibis, but it is not compulsory.

The agenda will allow us to discuss and further develop projects of mutual interest to Rotarians and Rotaractors.

Our final trial breakfast meeting at the Ibis will be on Thurs. 28th. Feb.


John W., John K, and myself will be attending the Rotaractors Conference Dinner at the Zoo this coming Sat. night.


I came across my notes from last year’s PETS weekend reminding me that the Rotary Foundation has for the last four years been voted by an outside body to be in the top five charities in the world and whose administration costs account for just 1.68% of your donation.


A reminder that our breakfast meeting this Thursday 7th. Feb. is at the Royal Coach in the renovated restaurant and our guest speaker is former member, Dalice Kennedy speaking about Creating Heart Safe Environments.

The Four Way Test

The Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
  4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?


United in the spirit of Service we value truth, fairness and friendship; and we welcome the opportunity that Rotary gives us to contribute our talents and resources in support of others.

Jokes Corner
Scotch with two drops of water...
A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water.
As the bartender gives her the drink she says, I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today'
The bartender says, 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me.'
As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, 'I would like to buy you a drink, too.'
The old woman says, 'Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.'
'Coming up,' says the bartender.
As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, 'I would like to buy you one, too.'
The old woman says, 'Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.'
'Coming right up,' the bartender says.
As he gives her the drink, he says, 'Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?'
The old woman replies, 'Sonny, when you are my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor.
Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.'
