President Cheryl's Message.
Hi everyone
What a hilarious zoom meeting we had last Tuesday. Lots of ideas put forward for next year with lots of chatter and opinions. You will get a chance to comment and/or contribute to our club goal setting within your sub committees hopefully face to face soon. As covid reduces and we slowly increase our involvement in our community we will get back to what will be the new normality soon. Zoom has certainly had its place but not as good in the long term.
Next week’s speaker on zoom is Fiona Jackson from Presbyterian Support Services refugee settlement programme. It will be great to hear about their success and challenges in meeting the needs of refugees when they arrive in South Canterbury.
For those who weren’t on zoom last Tuesday, I made an announcement regarding the resignations and transfers of some members. Russell Findlay and Shaun Anderson have resigned to focus on their families and in Shaun’s case his heavy workload. Hugh and Margaret Perry have transferred to the Riccarton Rotary Club. We wish them all well.
Yours aye

Editors Humour.

My cousin always “borrows” money from her older brother's piggy bank, which drives him crazy. One day, she found the piggy in, of all places, the freezer. Inside was this note: “Dear sister, I hope you'll understand, but my capital has been frozen.”

After leaving the Army, Shaun applied for a hunting permit but was told he would first need to take a hunter’s safety course.
“I’m a veteran, trained in handling firearms,” Shaun said. “Why wouldn’t I get a waiver?”
The clerk replied, “Because we teach you not to shoot people.”
A doctor recently learned a valuable lesson regarding what not to say to patients.
At our large hospital, he watched as a nursing assistant pushed an elderly woman in a wheelchair. As he opened the door leading from the clinic into the hospital wing, the patient looked confused. “Where are we?” she asked. The nursing assistant gently explained, “We’ve gone over to the other side.”
When Mark interviewed for a job six months after his 70th birthday, he was asked his age. With nothing to hide, he replied, “I’m halfway to my 71st birthday.” The interviewer looked sceptical. “No offence,” he said, “but you look older than 35.”
