President Cheryl's Message
Hi everyone
Back to the “best-laid plans” concept. Our guest speaker for last week had to cancel for a very good, albeit unfortunate reason. Being in civil defence he had to get across the alps before the weather deteriorated so he could be on hand for anticipated floods. Our thoughts go out to those across NZ who are impacted this week. Instead, we had a very productive workshop with our committees setting their goals for this year. I’ll publish them so you can all do your bit for the club as a whole next week.
This coming week we have Cassandra Slumskie speaking on recruitment and immigration employment. I don’t know about you but I am very interested to hear about our region and what is happening with regards to employment opportunities. Don’t forget to invite friends and family who are also interested.
Yours aye

'Meet The Dog Who Learnt To Walk Like A Human' Video.
Lionel sent me a video about a dog who was injured (and ended up losing a front leg) so he learnt to walk like a human.

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.
Fred was not thrilled with the idea of letting his clueless 13-year-old son babysit his younger sisters, even though he begged him to. "What about a fire?" Fred asked, referring to his No. 1 concern. "Dad," he said, rolling his eyes, "I'm a Boy Scout. I know how to start a fire."
At age 70, Mitch's grandfather bought his first riding lawn mower. "This thing is great," he bragged to my brother. "It took me only an hour and a half to mow the lawn. It used to take your grandmother two days to do it all!"
When my father ran out of gas, he called my mother to pick him up in her car. They went to a gas station, filled a gas can, and returned to his car. After a few minutes, he got into her car again.
"We need to go back to the gas station," he said.
"One gallon wasn't enough?" she asked.
"It would have been if I'd put it in the right car."
Brevity is next to confusion in the insurance business.
When a client died, her daughter told our agency that she would cancel the home policy the following week, once her mother's belongings were removed. Simple, right? Here's the note that was placed in the client's file:
"Deceased will call next week to cancel moving her things out."
