Thought for the week
You laugh at me because I’m different, I laugh at you because you’re all the same. - Lady Gaga 

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 Jess's Message.
Sata Sri Akal (Punjabi for hello).
A fabulous win for the Black Caps this week! 🙂 Although it's made a few late nights for me! 😕
This week we had Chris Davis and Anne Hindson from the Graeme Dingle Foundation along to talk about the work they do in our region. Our club has a special connection with the foundation as we started here with Kiwi Can all those years ago. Chris spoke about the various sessions the young students in decile 1-3 schools have available to them, and they teach 700 students in the Timaru and Waimate area weekly on topics such as life values, teamwork, trust, respect, self-belief, confidence and resilience development. The program costs $92K / annum to deliver in our region and they have a shortfall of $40K / annum.

Host Duties.
When doing Host Duties (i.e. Duty Roster), please remember that you set tables, raffles etc up for the night.
Then at the end of the meeting you need to pack up again and return table numbers etc. into the box and put away.
The large sign outside door must also be packed away (this part isn't always been done). 
It then falls to those leaving last.

For this Rotary year, President Jess would like members to take turns at providing the raffle prize (no alcohol please), either by buying a prize to the value of $10 to $15 (keep the receipt and ask Treasurer Jenny for reimbursement using the claims form click here...) or maybe you have a suitable prize you'd like to donate.
To make it simple to keep track of whose turn it is, the person on Host Duty 2 will be asked to provide the raffle prize for the week.
When it's your turn to provide the prize:
  • Please put the prize on the Host table no later than 5:30 pm.
  • Make sure there's a raffle sheet (from the host bin) and a pen on the table.
  • If you are unable to attend Rotary, and you are unable to find someone to swap, please contact Robyn Baldwin so she can arrange cover for the night.

Hard To Believe - But True.
Last Tuesday morning when out biking with our Recyclers Biking Group Ashley Milliken swerved to miss some broken glass on King St and immediately heard a loud BANG which lead to the discovery that an Allen key wrench had managed to go into the tread of his rear tyre and emerged out the sidewall (it hadn't been photographed I doubt anyone would have believed it could have happened).
He had to get a new tyre & tube.

Editors Humour.
A brain wave technologist often asks postoperative patients to smile to make sure their facial nerves are intact. It always struck him as odd to be asking this question right after brain surgery, so a colleague suggested he ask patients to show him their teeth.
Armed with this new phrase, he said to his next patient, “Mr Smith, show me your teeth.”
He shook his head. “The nurse has them.”
When she asked the children in her pre-school class what they needed in order to grow up nice and strong.
One little girl answered, “Birthdays!”
It always irked a single mother that her grocery store didn’t carry eggs in packages of six—just by the dozen.
Then one day, her wish came true. She walked into the grocery and found fresh eggs in cartons of six. “I was so excited,” she told us later, “that I bought two!”
