President Cheryl's Message.
Hi everyone
Great to catch up last Tuesday in person or via zoom.  Welcome to our youngest member Leo who came along for dinner with his mum and dad Emma and Andrew.
I love that we invest in our youth by sponsoring their attendance at leadership and career-focused workshops.  Our speaker last week Alex, certainly got a lot out of her RYLA attendance.  It is a well structured and challenging programme for which I congratulate the organisers.
Next week’s speaker is Chris Rapley from the Museum (speaking on 'Secrets at the Museum').  If you love hearing about our history and that of others make sure you come along or zoom in.  And don’t forget to bring along or include in your zoom your friends and family who would also be interested.
Yours aye
Alex. after the PowerPoint on her experience at RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) 2022 in Queenstown when Cheryl had presented her with her RYLA certificate.

It’s a while since we reviewed our bulletin content.  Stephen does a great job pulling it together each week.  I know it’s sometimes a struggle for him to get items from us.  I think we need to pick up our game in that regard.  So - I’m looking for feedback since it is your bulletin.  What do you like about it, what would you like to see that isn’t there, and what can be improved.  Email me your responses ( then Stephen and I can work on your suggestions.
Thanks much

Editors Humour.

The graveside service had just ended when there was a frightening clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning accompanied by even louder thunder. The husband of the deceased woman looked at the pastor and said calmly, “Well, she’s there.”

Ashley walks past a pub. He looks at the door longingly, but since he has no money, he walks on. Just then, he spots a lamp lying in the gutter. He picks it up and rubs it, and a genie emerges.

“I will grant you three wishes,” intones the genie.

“Give me a bottomless mug of beer,” Ashley says.

A mug of beer appears in his hand. He takes a sip, then another. With each chug, the mug magically refills.

“And for your other two wishes?”

Between swallows, Ashley shouts, “Give me two more just like this one!
Jim took his son to the doctor's office after he sprained his finger. The nurse applied a splint, only to be told she'd put it on the wrong finger.

"I'm sorry," she said. "That's OK," Jims son said. "You were only off by one digit."
