President Cheryl's Message
Hi everyone
Great talk from our guest speaker Chris Thomas from Aged Concern.  Thanks for the reminder about Enduring Power of Attorney, Wills and Advanced Care Plans.
Our thoughts continue to be with those who have relatives and friends still impacted by adverse weather in the North Island.  So devastating for those living amid it all. Next week our speaker is Clare Bruce from Life Education.  They do a great job and I’m looking forward to hearing more.  Don’t forget to invite family and friends who may also be interested. Yours aye Cheryl

Rotary Foundation Appeal For Pakistan & Ukraine
Our club has received a request that has originated from Joan Kiernan (D9999 Rotary Foundation Chair) about a 'Rotary Foundation Appeal For Pakistan & Ukraine' which contained the following:-
Hi everybody,
I know there are a lot of requests for assistance doing the rounds at the moment, and Clubs may want to prioritise helping with more local problems, but for anybody who wants to send support to Pakistan or Ukraine, this is the recognised Rotary Foundation route. 
Thank you

Editors Humour
I woke up this morning and forgot which side the sun rises from, then it dawned on me.
I've just written a song about tortillas; actually, it’s more of a rap.
Velcro—what a rip-off!
I recently decided to sell my vacuum cleaner as all it was doing was gathering dust.
Don't you hate it when someone answers their own questions?
I do.
