Fellow Rotarians and friends 
Unfortunately I missed last Tuesday night, our Anzac themed meeting.  I’ve known Nigel Allsopp for many years now, a real character and passionate historian.  The feedback from his presentation has been great, he has been slotted to present at a future District conference. 
The new club van has arrived. The payload capacity is greater than old Betsy and it looks great.  Thank you to all involved, especially Neil Jones and Harold.
Gratitude plus to the Bunnings sizzlers from last week.  The club managed a profit of just over $800 which is great. A reminder that we have at least two more allocated between now and 30 June.  Please volunteer to Ray if you can assist, we need two shifts of four people from 7am and 11am.
Three week until the District 9640 Conference at Twin Towns Conference Centre.  At $60.00 per head, which includes morning tea break and lunch, it represents great value.  Registrations close on 1 May or when the maximum of 500 seats have been sold out.
Among the interesting keynote speakers is Jason Browne (via Zoom), Public Image Co-Ordinator, Zone 28 & 29, Pennsylvania State University Rotary Club, on "Can we make M&M's in Rotary?"  Click here for more information and to book.
I’m again an apology next Tuesday, VP Alain will step up to the plate to chair the evening.  Act for Kids do such great work and our guest Gary Poole should be of great interest, the synergies between Rotary and the work Act for Kids do will be very interesting.
Until next week.
Yours in Rotary.
