Hi Fellow Rotarians
Last Monday we had Zoom and welcomed Catherine Heeney to our meeting as a potential new member.  Kate Riddle is hot on the trail of local primary schools with our offer of Buddy Benches.  Cammeray Primary is very keen on the idea. Our DG Christine Owen will visit us on Monday 28th for lunch at the Union.  ALL Directors need to be present as well as many members as possible to show the flag. We will be approaching our local member Tim James to make him an Honorary Member of Crows Nest. Ross is checking out the Crowes Nest Hotel as a possible venue for our meetings. The Mary's House project of installing an IT program to link all their services is complete.  Well done to Sue Raveane with a District Grant. Bruce de Graff is sorting out Coles as a secure supplier for Bunnings BBQ.  Thanks Bruce.
No meeting on August 21 - just all turn up on 28th !
