We had a very successful Board meeting on Monday where, amongst other things, the continued development of the Vision Project was discussed. The Directors, together with their teams, will identify the ways and means of identifying how we progress to achieve our Critical Success
Factor’s objectives. Once they complete their task they will then report back to the Board and the Board’s recommendations will be passed on to the Club.
Splendour in the Grass is nearly upon us and we need more hands to the pump; could you please look at the roster provide by Geoff and volunteer your time where there are still vacancies? Rick, and the team, have put a lot of work into the planning of this event and its success should generate considerable financial gain to the Club. We need to ensure that our effort is commensurate with the input from the other two clubs.
I have to admit that as a relatively new member to Rotary my knowledge of its organisation and functions is thin, and I suspect that I am not alone. Developing future leaders was also an outcome of the Vision Project and to address this issue Brian Doyle has volunteered his services. This coming Wednesday Brian will give a 5 minute presentation on The Rotary Foundation and on subsequent Wednesdays he will identify a “volunteer” to continue this task. Brian will nominate a subject to ensure continuity of the program.
LAST WEEK’S MEETING
Pres Mike opened the meeting in the usual manner. He reported that at the recent Board meeting the Directors' contributions had helped to make it an encouraging start to his year as President. Mike then
asked the Directors present to give the club a rundown on their position.
Greg S,as Pres Elect, is going to assist the Pres as needs arise.
Angela G,as Community Service Director, is progressing Club projects with the hope of liaising more in the community with the other service clubs.
Treasurer Jeff indicated there will be a substantial profit from the Show. However it is disappointing that members are not sending in meeting apologies and as a result the Club has been paying for the meals ordered on their behalf.
THIS MEANS IF YOU FAIL TO ATTEND A MEETING & HAVE NOT APOLOGISED YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE MEAL.
David E,as Vocation Director, is hoping to work more closely with the schools.
Lynda R, as International Director, has a good band of workers & they intend meeting regularly for discussions to progress International understanding.
Debra L, as New Generations Director, is seeking assistance with Interact, RYLA, & Bike Ed.
Bernice, as Membership Director, has a couple of prospects for new members.
Our assistance with Splendour in The Grass is needing more helpers so if you haven’t put your name on the roster, please conact Geoff Coughlan or Rick Vickers.
Brian Doyle was thanked for his efforts in organising a great car excursion - also the upcoming progressive dinner on 6 Aug. Please email Brian with your acceptance; this should be a great time of fellowship with members & partners.
Our Deputy Sergeant Bill extracted many fines & we enjoyed his country humour.
The meeting ended & we were given an early discharge.
