Thought for the week
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible. - Winston Churchill

Thanks to King Street Motors for carrying out a Warrant of Fitness inspection of the Hot Dog Caravan at no cost to the Club, and then carrying out some maintenance work, again at no cost to the Club.  What great support of our efforts for the community.
Members might like to return the favour by supporting King Street Motors; you'll find them at 143 King Street.

Thank You 
Major sponsor of the

President Cheryl's Message.
Hi everyone
Great to have Fiona Jackson from the Refugee Resettlement Programme chatting to us last Tuesday. The team does a great job in assisting our refugees to settle into Timaru life as seamlessly as possible. Great to hear the programme is getting back on track after covid.
I look forward to chatting to her further on how we at Rotary can assist in addition to supplying firewood.
Next week we have our AGMs - Club and Charitable Trust.
The week after our Changeover Dinner. As members of our Club, I encourage you to attend both. Don’t forget to bring your spouses to the dinner.
I also want to advise of the passing of member Lee John’s dad Ray recently. Our condolences to Lee and her family.
Yours aye.

Hugh & Margaret Perry's Transfer To Riccarton Rotary.
Further to my announcement in last week’s Bulletin, we now have further information on Hugh and Margaret Perry’s transfer to Riccarton Rotary as follows:
Hugh and Margaret have transferred to Riccarton Rotary in Christchurch but continue to reside in Timaru. They have no intention of moving to Christchurch. Hugh’s Law Office in Timaru remains open. He is not retiring from legal practice.
There is no longer a requirement to be resident where the club is located. We understand the Riccarton Club is a multi-culture club, where their abilities will be able to be fully extended for the benefit of themselves and Rotary.  
We wish them well in their continued work and residence in Timaru and with their new Rotary Club.

Party In The Playground.
Last Sunday Cheryl, Chris, Emma, Jenny, Jess, Lionel & Lynette manned the 'Sausage Sizzle' (where they cooked about 800 sausages - no doubt helped by the wet cold weather) at the 'Party in the Playground' held in the playground at Caroline Bay before it is dismantled in preparation for the new replacement (which should be ready before the start of 2023).

Information Required.
Remember this is "your" bulletin and so please email information to me on what your committee is doing (or planning) so everyone can be aware of it.
Lack of the above will mean the bulletin is not advising the members of what is happening in the club & particapation will be down.

Editors Humour.

Leafing through 'The Timaru Herald', I noticed this classified ad: “For sale: one used tombstone. Splendid opportunity for a family named Dingle".

George asked his pastor, “If I don’t quit smoking, will I go to hell?”
“No,” he said. “You’ll just smell like it."
Pete's normally sweet Great Dane has one quirk: She hates New Zealand Courier drivers. While walking her one day, we came upon a guy delivering a package.
Struggling to keep hold of her, he joked, “As you can see, she just loves NZC drivers.”
Circumnavigating us, he muttered, “Don’t you feed her anything else?”
“Honey, did you notice? I bought a new toilet brush.”
Husband: “Yes, I did. But I still prefer the paper.”
