I can honestly say that last week’s meeting is the first time in my life that I have ever done speed dating! A huge thank you to everyone for our meeting where we welcomed Andy our District Governor and Bruce our Assistant Governor and also Sarah was our other guest.

 

It was wonderful to hear Andy speak with such passion for Rotary and some of his strategies for growing membership – also thank you for the M & M’s, chocolate will always win me over.

 

For those not in attendance we presented the ‘big cheque’ with our donation to Love Bites of $500.00 – Love Bites is a prevention program focusing on Domestic and Family Violence.

 

We have also committed to implementing Solar Buddy in our local area starting with 60 students. I will give you more information as this evolves.

 

This week our speaker will be Phil Fairweather - District Foundation Director.

 

Our Christmas party is starting to take shape. It is being held at Cherry’s farm on 5th December for a mid afternoon affair. Secret Santa will be happening again, a $10 gift preferably purchased from an op shop. Please let Judy or Cathy know if you are bringing nibbles, salad or dessert. 

 

Have you donated an item to our end of year "You Have A Friend" Christmas packing night? The items mostly being sought at the moment are toothpaste, toothbrushes and deodorant.

 

Do you know anyone who would be an excellent RYTS or RYLA candidate? Please see Judy Parker if you have someone in mind.

 

As mentioned at the meeting, I won’t be in attendance this week with Jeannie stepping in for me - bad jokes and all.

 

Cheers,

Hayley

DID YOU KNOW?

“The Rotary Foundation is not to build monuments of brick and stone. If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work on brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds…we are engraving on those tablets something that will brighten all eternity.”

— Arch C. Klumph, December 1928


Klumph, best known as the father of The Rotary Foundation, was born 6 June 1869 in Conneautville, Pennsylvania, USA. Read more about Klumph, or contribute now to help further the work of the Foundation in honour of the anniversary of his birthday.

LOOPER NOTES
Looper Notes 4th November, 2020
Simone taught us a gentle way to quieten everyone by fluttering our fingers in a downward motion whilst making waterfall noises ending with shhhh.
Hayley welcomed our District Governor Andy and Assistant Governor Bruce to our meeting. When asked if anyone had special news; Marissa and Peter had a new foal which was born on their property overnight.
Hayley’s joke: Why was the broom late? It over swept…
Steph conducted a speed dating icebreaker. It was fun and made you think quickly.
Leonie gave the Words of Wisdom and changed it to how
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
Jeannie gave the Services Report. She thanked everyone for bringing in Christmas items for You Have a Friend. At the Board Meeting yesterday it was decided to donate $2,000 to Wedgetail Retreat and to launch a new project; Solar Buddies involving 60 students.
Kaylene C advised that the red wool needs to be replenished. The wool is used to crotchet/knit poppies to colour the bridge for ANZAC Day next year. Numinbah Women’s Correction Centre is helping make the poppies.
Cathy reminded us that our Christmas Party will be held on Saturday 5th December in the afternoon at Cherry’s Farm. It will be a barbecue and everyone is asked to bring along either: nibbles, salads or dessert plus a Secret Santa gift ($10).  Please write your name in the book if attending and advise what you are bringing.
District Governor Andy spoke to us and advised that the DG can now decide what Club he will visit. Andy handed out M&Ms and said that his vision is for a vibrant Rotary District like M&Ms and to make Rotary memorable. According to Andy we make it memorable for a few members in our clubs but not for everyone. Think of the four way test then his mission is to make membership memorable. Ten days ago Andy visited Casino Rotary and past DG Terry Brown took him on a tour of Evans Head. Andy walked into L.J. Hooker in Evans Head and asked The Principal if there was a Rotary Club in the town. As there wasn’t Andy has organised with the help of Casino Rotary to hold an Information Night on 10th November in Evans Head. As a District Andy said we have retained our numbers. In our District 8% (102) members are under 40. Andy said the challenge is to keep members engaged. He believes every member should feel like a rock star.
Elizabeth thanked Andy. He was presented with a cheque for $500 to give to his nominated charity which is Love Bites: A Domestic Violence programme. Andy reminded us that next year Rotary will celebrate its 100 year anniversary. Sarah won the raffle. Fines were held and we were asked to write inspirational words in the book so there will be plenty to choose from when we write on our blackboard.
