Dear Fellow Rotarians and Friends,
Well we gave it a good try over the last few months, but without the support, our members decided to revert to lunchtime Meetings only, that is, apart from special occasions, no evening Meetings.   Plus those unable to make the lunchtime Meetings, when we resume back at the hotel, will have the ability to Zoom in.
And as for when we revert back to the hotel, we are hopeful for some good news from Gladys to change the social gathering and distancing rules.   At this stage, not sure precisely when, but it maybe November.
Last week I attended a Northbridge Club Meeting, as their Guest Speaker was the President of the Kathmandu Club talking about all their projects, including the one our Club is a joint sponsor of, being the COVID Response Support Project, by supplying hand washing stations and PPE equipment.  Kathmandu Club have done an excellent job, and the list of project is most impressive.
Also I had a President’s Cluster Meeting with AG, John Zhang, along with the Presidents of Northbridge, North Sydney and North Sydney Sunrise.  Great opportunity to compare notes and promote our Trifecta.  Speaking of Trifecta, we have had a number of Stapling Meetings at Cyril’s place, and we really need to focus on selling our Tickets, as the current uptake from other Clubs is very slow.
Then there’s the BBQ, with lots of discussion around the start up on the 10th of October with the many operational changes under the COVID rules.  So, we all have some interesting times ahead.
And finally, I would like to thanks Ross for volunteering to be the WWC Co-ordinator, taking over this role with John Saunder’s retirement.  Thanks Ross.
And remember, there will be no meeting next Monday, the Queens Birthday Weekend Public Holiday Monday!
