President Cheryl's Message.
Hi everyone

We had an amazing speaker last week, Nicki Kerr from the Red Cross.  The volunteer hours she puts in each week to train and then her tireless energy to help in emergencies was inspiring.  The Red Cross certainly has a crucial role to play in our community.

We zoomed again last week, sort of.  Having got it near perfect the first week, we had glitches this time.  Next week will be perfect I am sure.  It will be an important workshop meeting for us.  If you haven’t checked your emails for a while, please do.  I have sent one out to outline what we will be discussing next week.  I’m looking for a few important decisions on where to from here, as well as lots of inspiring projects and fundraising ideas.  Please zoom if you can’t make the physical meeting and will be at home at the time.  The zoom link is below.  If you are unsure how to use zoom call me, one of us who can will drop around to show you.

See you one way or another next week.

Yours aye

Editors Humour.

When living in rural South Canterbury, Peter finds driving through crowded Christchurch difficult. “I have trouble figuring out when to turn and what lane to be in,” he complained to his grandson. The grandson's wife could commiserate. “I know what you mean,” she said. “I never know at which paddock to turn when we come to visit you.”

Our doctor’s office called to let Julie's husband know that the results from his blood tests came back and he was just fine. That didn’t suit her husband.

“What’s my cholesterol level?” he asked.

“Mr Dockrill, you are just fine,” insisted the nurse.

“Still, I’d like you to mail me the results.”

A few days later, he received a postcard from the doctor’s office. It read, “Mr Dockrill, you are just fine!”

Vicki's great-aunt looked confused when she told her that her daughter was 18 months old. “Oh,” she said. “I thought she was a year and a half.”

“But Aunt Marie," Vicki said, “18 months and a year and a half are the same.”

She shrugged. “What do I know? I never had kids.”
