Dear Members and Friends,
Despite a few hick ups with supplies, another very successful BBQ last Saturday with $1400 profit achieved.  Well done for all involved.   It’s also good to see that we’re back to our old manning levels of four each shift with an extra person covering the busy mid-day period from 10am to 2pm.   And, don’t forget, we have to back again next week, so please check the schedule.
Bill, Philip and I attended the Virtual District Assembly on Sunday covering Foundation and International, thus meeting our obligation for District and International Grants.   We are now under pressure to come up with a suitable District Grant, hopefully by the end of May, for next Rotary year.
Please note that Philip has just sent out the invitations for the Changeover night on June the 28th, so please respond back on the invitation email.
We must thank our Assistant Governor, John Zhang, for not only attending our Meeting last Monday, but also filling in the role as Guest Speaker based on the charity he is deeply involved in, Special Children Services Centre Inc, covering areas like, people living with Intellectual Disabilities, along with Support Programmes for Participants and their Carers from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds.
John and his support group have been supporting this cause for almost 15 years, an incredible effort.
Remember, the President’s Changeover Dinner, and Pride of Workmanship Awards, 28th of June 2021,
Enough to keep us occupied.
So, in the meantime, stay safe
Yours In Rotary
President Ian
