Hello everybody,
Last Wednesday 11 Sept at The St Ives Club we welcomed Matt Cross and fiancé Gessika Innocent to our Club. Matt’s membership classification is “Management Consultant” and I urge everyone to introduce themselves and to get to know them. It is up to all of us to educate and inform new members all of the ‘things’ Rotary and our Club does in the Community.
The St Ives Club is a great venue for social meeting and the menu last Wednesday was excellent.
It was great to hear many of the great stories from and about our really successful Food & Wine Festival last Sunday. Harold gave a brief report and thanked everyone who participated.
We look forward to studying our research on how we can make the F&W Festival even better next year on 20th September 2020! Well done everyone!
This week will be a very busy week of meetings and events for many of us.
By the time you read this we will have seen a pre-release fund-raiser of the new movie “Ride like a Girl” on Sunday 15th Sept. Dinah and I are going with the Grandchildren and will report. Thank you to all the members and partners who are also attending as about 60% to 75% of the ticket sales will be going towards ‘Ending Polio Now’.
On Tuesday evening 17th Sept the Food & Wine Committee will hold a de-brief meeting. Any comments or thoughts, would you please send an email to Harold?
This Wednesday 18th Sept we have a Breakfast Meeting at The Blue Jar, St Ives Village at 7:30AM.
As I am not sure if Rosemary’s computer has been resurrected yet, I will send out a reminder on Monday. Treasurer John Steel will soon be back from East Timor and we look forward to hearing how the trip went.
On Thursday 19th Sept the Ku-ring-gai Neighbourhood Centre (KNC) celebrates 40 Years of caring and connecting people. Dinah and I look forward to celebrating with them at a special dinner.
St Ives really appreciates the contribution the KNC makes within Ku-ring-gai in so many areas.
On Saturday 21st September, Diabetes Alive has invited us to a “Thank you Night” at the Canterbury Leagues Club. A number of St Ives Rotarians have accepted the invitation.
Our regular meeting on Wednesday 25th Sept will be at Avondale Golf Club at 6:30 for 7:00PM.
Apart from a wonderful meal we will hear from Greg Smith update us on The Mentoring Men, a not for profit organisation which provides free life mentoring program for adult men in the community. This is a fantastic organisation that is trying to support so many men.
I urge all of you to take 10 minutes to read Scott Pape’s report “This Week I Lost a Mentor” a heartfelt article about Tim Fischer and how he ‘mentored’ Scott
Our monthly Board Meeting will take place at Avondale at 5:30pm on Wed 25th September.
As you can see we have a busy time ahead and this does not include a reminders about Daffodil Day on 23rd Sept or your urgent nominations by 1st October for our Pride of Workmanship!
 Best wishes and have a great week.
President Russell
