President-Elect Cheryl's Message.
What a great evening we had to enjoy the beginning of our Rotary year - a BBQ with partners.  The weather was perfect, Tony and Jim did well on the BBQ and your contributions to the table were very tasty (see a link to five photos below).

This week Roselyn Fauth will be speaking on her project WuHoo Timaru.  Make sure you invite friends and family who love participating in local events and exploring the local environment.  They will want to know about this.

See you Tuesday
Yours aye

Welcome Back BBQ

It was attended by 22 members and partners (including Emma, Andrew & baby Leo).
A big THANK YOU to Cheryl for all the work in organising it & the use of your home.

Editors Humour.
Daniels son was upset that his cricket coach yelled whenever he or a teammate made a mistake.
“It’s just something coaches do,” Daniel said. “It’s not personal.”
His response was hard to argue with: “If it’s not personal, then why do they use your name?”
When Susans 85-year-old father Charles was in the hospital, his doctor, trying to determine Charles mental state, asked, “What gets you up in the morning?”
Charles shrugged. “Probably the same thing as everyone. I have to go to the bathroom".
A teacher set a homework assignment for his Spanish class which was to write a paragraph. When he returned their papers, he asked one student if he had used Google Translate or any other online translator to write his paper. The student categorically denied doing so. That led to his next question: “Then why is this in French?”
