Dear Fellow Rotarians and Friends,
Well, here we are at the end of the calendar year ,half way through the Rotary year ,finishing off next Monday night with the Giving Night at Northbridge Golf Club.
An eventful year ,to say the least ,with the impact of the word COVID ,throwing us all into complete turmoil ,but hopefully coming out at the end a stronger and more united Club.
Our BBQ is really swinging into high gear ,and hopefully as the COVID impact subsides ,so will the operating procedures .And, we have this coming Saturday and the 19th to go for the year .Therefore, please keep an eye out for Howard’s email showing the Roster.
Our Giving Night is registering good numbers ,and if you haven’t signed up yet  ,please respond to Mark’s invite.
Same with the Tree of Joy ,we still have a few gaps to fill ,so please check out Angelo’s email request with the spreadsheet and enter your name.
In the meantime ,stay safe
Yours In Rotary

Last Meeting Monday  24th November 2020 - Our AGM    

Much discussion on the BBQ Roster for this coming Saturday ,but Howard has it all sorted .Note ,there are still a few gaps for the following BBQ on the 19th,so please help Howard with the Roster.
Please note,on the question of masks ,Bunnings advise ,not mandatory but  advisable to wear.
For the Giving Night ,Mark has 27 attendees ,with a few maybes ,which will hopefully sort out by Friday .As only 9 have paid on line ,Mark has requested ,to make Cyril's job easier to pay prior to the night .Also ,he has requested everyone seated by 7pm,as dinner will be served shortly afterwards.
Sue advises ,that we still have a few gaps to fill for the Tree of Joy roster from the 11th to the 16th of December ,especially for the the 13th,being the Sunday .This year we will only be collecting vouchers and money ,no presents ,which should make life a bit easier .Note there is a new venue this year ,being opposite the KMart entrance ,but still in the Chase.
Tom was most concerned with the Christmas Tree decorations ,but definitely in need of sprucing up compared to last year's efforts .At the end of each day ,a lady from Chatswood Club will come and collect all proceedings
