Tricia gave a lively and enlightening talk about the Clown Doctors programme. This uses entertainers, properly qualified, to brighten the lives of children in hospital as well as people in aged care facilities. Tricia has been honoured with her own clown coat as a result of her amazing dedication for fundraising this charity. 
Last week we have Tricia Fortier from the Clown Doctors from  Gosford Hospital and from all reports was a hit.
Tonight we hear from ADVENTURER Jeremy Scott, who completed a 51,916km bike ride through 29 countries in 2011-14, who will speak about his inspiration journey.

Jeremy was born with a massive hole in his heart and underwent open heart surgery in his native New Zealand at age 4 in 1977. He has written a book his life — The Long Road from a Broken Heart — and is raising funds for heart foundations in Australia, the UK and NZ.

Jeremy  not being able to crawl and then run like everyone else had made him stubborn. That was why he had made the most of his new-found health after the successful surgery he had as a child. He said riding a bike was the best and most rewarding way to travel. After living in the UK for 10 years, Mr Scott decided to ride home to New Zealand — a trip that took 31 months.

He battled extreme conditions, fear, loneliness, the Iranian military and Filipino mafia. “Apart from walking, there is no other way to have such a sense of freedom,” and we'll hear about his adventures tonight.

To assist the Board with various Administration functions we are experimenting with a file sharing program called Drop Box. This allows us to
store our corporate knowledge, such as AGM minutes, Annual Reports, meeting minutes, financial reports, Club Photos etc.
This will require changes in how we think about information. I can publish a story in our Bulletin and reach twenty or so folk, but on Social Media that same story can reach thousands and even go globally with our Rotary network.  To this end information is no longer stored in silos eg filing cabinets. It is virtual but can be safe guarded by restricting access levels. 
The Board will be given information on other options such as virtual cloud storage  programs like Google Drive that links with Google Docs, also we can pay for an upgrade of our Clubrunner to do the same.  
From my experience this is hard in the beginning but becomes increasingly easier. At the Top Blokes evening I sat with MP David Harris. The photo he had with the top blokes he uploaded  on his smartphone to his social media platforms eg facebook twittter, smartchat, he said had just reached 5000 people and by the morning many thousands more with who they are sharing links with including his media contacts.
The way forward will be based on consensus and transparency principles and linked with our strategic plan for developing our  Club including the the next generation of new members.
By the way over 97% of all financial transactions are non cash, and Generation Next don't like carry cash or paying $2.50 to use the ATM to get money to pay at our service desk. So to both thrive yet alone survive we must start on this journey of virtual information change. More on this later
 when explore option, develop a business case for our way forward and get the right technology to support these developments.
Happy days
Minutes from recent meeting of CC Presidents. More information to follow after next month's Board meeting
Hi President Greg,
Sorry to add to your email burden, but we are below critical mass for RLI 48 Part 1 starting on Saturday 4 August with Part 2 on 25 August.
It is great value at $75 including lunches and teas and all course materials.  RLI is proven to boost Club retention through arming Rotarians with skills and knowledge, and enthusing them for their Rotary experience.
I would dearly love this RLI to go ahead so please ask members to register at:  - they will enjoy the course.
Regards, Ian Scott
RLI Convenor

Could u kindly ask members if they can make the Zoom link up meeting with the RC of Helderburg Sunrise on Thursday afternoon 3pm on 19.7.18.
Any member interested who do
Hi guys. Here is a note from Graham Money from RC Helderburg Sunrise.  It was really interesting to experience this link up and to hear about Helderburg Education projects.  Graham has issued a challenge to help increase membership.  How are we going to handle this.  I think I might have a "membership think tank" section at one of our meetings in the near future and see if anybody has any ideas to,share.  I'll speak to the board tomorrow.  Thanks Mary

Subject: Today's meeting
Hello Mary.
Let me hasten to say what a pleasure to share our Club’s Rotary meeting with you and the members of the Terrigal RC.  Amazing what can be achieved with modern technology!  The next step will be to zoom in on one of your Club meetings. Haven’t worked out the timing yet in my mind, but it will probably mean us having a midnight feast or cup of coffee to keep us awake!!
Great to hear a little about your Club’s projects and activities. I mentioned membership-wise a Club challenge, which I hope your President Greg and members will accept on the basis that the more members we have, the more can be achieved.
My idea is a prize of some description or perhaps a certificate of recognition for the Club which achieves the highest net growth between now and 30 June next year. And to be fair and might I say generous, because of the size of the Helderberg Sunrise RC, we have to have a net growth of twice that of Terrigal’s.  Does that sound fair to you?  Open to any other suggestions you may have. 
Sadly I won’t be able to attend the link up on Saturday, but look forward to our next chat together.
All the very best,
I thought you may be interested in the information detailed in Linkedin
which hopefully you can open.
