President's Report for 16th January 2020
President's Report

Last Thursday, Norma and Bill Boag treated us to the most wonderful evening at their house.  Every one of our members and their partners attended (bar one holiday maker).  Thank you Norma and Bill for your generosity and hospitality.  Norma is a wonder - shopping, cooking, preparing, serving delicious food and insisting we don't help with the clean up - making it all look easy and making us feel relaxed and happy. 

This coming week we are proud to announce we shall be inducting Lynn Wilson into our Club.  Fortuitously the assistant Governor, David Rivett  will be visiting our club with a guest.  We are also proud to announce that Jan Pryor will be talking to us about the Didi Foundation (Creating Sustainable Futures in Napal). Last year our Club obtained a District Grant to help with this project.

Next week we are pleased to welcome our PhD student Emma who will update us on her progress with the Audiology degree, which we have helped fund, through Rotary Australian Health

Our January board meeting will be prior to next weeks meeting. (23rd)   All are welcome to sit in.

Please put into your diaries Saturday 29 February, 10am to 2pm  for a Central Coast Rotary Bush Fire Appeal at Mingara Club.  Tickets are $5.00.  See whole script below.

Letter from Christine Owen AG Central Coast
Fund Raiser for Bushfire Relief
Dear Presidents
You will recall when DG Kalma visited your clubs that she promoted a fundraising event for Saturday 29 February. The fundraising focus was The Purple House – an Indigenous Dialysis Project in Central Australia.  The idea was to make a world record attempt for the number of people around Australia (all Rotary Districts) on the number of people simultaneously dancing the Nutbush. It appears Guinness World Record authorities are wanting to charge an arm and a leg so attempting the record is likely to slide through to the keeper……
The focus of the fundraising event has been shifted to the bushfires.  Each of us likely has been affected or knows someone who has been touched in some way.
We are fortunate that few people have been victims of the fires in our District at this stage compared with other areas as you will have read in the DG’s newsletter.
On the Central Coast we are planning an event on the same , Saturday 29 February at Mingara Regional Athletics Centre, 12-14 Mingara Drive, Tumbi Umbi.
The aim is to charge a $5.00 entry fee (through and at the gate) to provide access to a number of food stalls and activities, involvement in the nutbush dance and this can only occur with the support of all 16 Central Coast Rotary Clubs.
We will perform the Nutbush dance for a fun and different way to raise funds. Funds raised will go to the bushfire victims and I understand this will occur in a similar way to the funds raised for the drought relief by providing vouchers for spending in local bushfire effected communities.
I hope you will be enthusiastic to support this event…. In general the plan is as follows:
Central Coast Plan
·         To have food stalls (Rotary and others, coffee carts, drinks/ice creams etc, maybe a bouncing castle, the fire engine man (kids display). The Mingara club has some food cart contacts they will share with me should we need them.
·         The venue is suitable for a single entry point for participants.
·         We have access to the PA system and the Nutbush Dance can be conducted on the internal space inside the athletics track at 11am with some pre-practice.
·         Aim is to erect an elevated platform for dance leads.
·         Time: Stall access and set-up 8am. Event 10am-2pm. Pack down by 3pm
·         Food stalls etc outside the track – no vehicles on the track.
·         Mingara will make a minimal charges for use of the venue, PA system etc.
·         Rotary stalls covered by Rotary insurance and can setup free of charge. Other stalls (non-Rotary will need their own insurance cover and a fee will be charged to participate (amount yet to be determined).
·         Funds collected are to be donated the Rotary Bushfire appeal via RAWCS account.
·         I have asked DG Kalma if there is to be a social media campaign and await her response. Should this happen I would hope you will take steps to share the massage with your contacts, schools, other service organisations etc etc.
I would appreciate a prompt response by email to indicate your willingness to be involved with a food stall or some other stall, willingness to dance the Nutbush in the large group and generally have fun as we raise funds for those less fortunate across our Rotary Districts
More information to come after I have heard from you and your club.
Of course, if you have other ideas please share them with me an others on the CC Presidents and AG’s distribution list.
I look forward to serving together.
Yours in Rotary
