Dear Fellow Rotarians,
Well what a cracker of a night on Tuesday.
We had a inter club debate organised with two willing teams of 3 to be chaired by Rotarian Bob Jordan with team leaders of Grahame Werrell and Neil Baldwin. At the 11th hour one of the teams key players Rotarian Pauline had an priority call to Brisbane and Rotarian Ian was not well so the plug was pulled and no debate as each side was to be down one participant. But we had a wonderful night of fellowship, yummy Salmon meal with free table wine and soft drinks or beer and our Sergeant was in full flight and the jokes flowed as this meeting ended up an all male meeting. The girls let us down. The floor was open to all members and we had excellent directors reports to include a Hub update by Rotarian Noel and VP Jim updated us on the Book Sale.
The Book Sale has had a wonderful launch under Rotarian Chris and we do not want to loose the momentum and of course wish to cement this as a major fundraiser in years ahead. Your full support is needed for this great event.
My recommendation with regard a debate next year if we are to have one is to challenge another Rotary Club and get down and dirty.
The Silver Circle was won by Brian Pearson who advised Bob to donate it to Polio Plus. Thank You Brian.
Just a reminder members please keep your eye on the Rosters and now VP Jim has the Book Sale Roster up on the web site so please go in and fill up the places. This is of paramount importance as the sale date is fast approaching and we shall need all hands on deck.
This weeks meeting is very important in our Calendar year as we elect the incoming President for 2016-2017 and the Board that will have an exciting year under the reins of Bruce, 2015-2016. I urge a full 100% attendance. Rotarian Harold will also give us a presentation with regard the District Project of Suns Horizons. Harold should be in fine form after his time away looking for new members.
On the 8th December VP Jim has a wonderful guest speaker lined up. Beverley Allsop is travelling from Brisbane and promises to give us an enlightening evening.
Then on Tuesday the 15th Santa comes. Social director Kevin Obrien promises a great evening. This will be the highlight of our past 6 months and an opportunity to sit back, relax and be spoiled. We have a great muso in Vic Pascoe also in attendance, so some dancing is on the cards for sure. And of course the ladies get a small gift from Santa!!! Ho Ho Ho !!!
Until next week
Yours in Rotary
