Thought for the week
There is a sense that things if you keep positive and optimistic about what can be done, do work out. - Hillary Clinton

Thank You

President Cheryl's Message
Hi everyone
Always great to hear from our new members. Thank you Ian for giving us an insight into your life and career both past and present. We look forward to your partner Cheryl filling in the gaps next week. It’s great to have you both on board.
As I write this it’s a glorious spring day albeit in the middle of winter. Here’s hoping it stays this way for the tree planting on Saturday which I’m very excited about. Our District Governor Jan and her husband will be joining us.
We’ve revamped the rosters to take account of those on zoom and those away for an extended period. Please make sure you organise a swap with someone else if you are on duty and can’t make it that particular night.
Yours aye

Sneaky Sergeant Again Trying to Deceive.

Boxing Apples For Local Food Banks (30.07.22)
Last week we were offered the opportunity to box up part of a cancelled apple export order and deliver it to our local food banks & people in need of some fresh fruit.
On Friday & Saturday mornings members, past members & friends headed out to empty some bins into boxes, approximately 100 boxes are heading out to our community this week.
To view some photos from Saturday morning click here...

Editors Humour.
When our client's dog lapped up anti-freeze, the veterinarian I work for ordered a unique treatment: an IV drip mixing fluids with vodka. "Go buy the cheapest bottle you can find," he told me. At the liquor store, I was uneasy buying cheap booze so early in the day, and I felt compelled to explain things to the clerk. "Believe it or not," I said, "this is for a sick dog." As I was leaving, the next customer plunked down two bottles of muscatel and announced, "These are for my cats."
When a neighbour's home was burglarised, Cheryl decided to be more safety conscious. But her measly front-door lock wasn’t going to stop anyone, so she hung this sign outside: "Nancy, don’t come in. The snake is loose. Cheryl."
Michelle can’t tell the difference between a rose and a dandelion. So when it came time to fix up her garden, she had no clue which plants to keep and which ones to remove. Until that is, her mother gave her this handy tip:
"Pull them all up. If it comes back, it’s a weed."
Chris was telling a couple that wished to place their house on the market with him,
"It’s tough enough selling a home nowadays. Don’t make the mistakes that turned off people who viewed a recent open home:
• "It was a good house, well-maintained. But the bed with the person in it was off-putting."
• "The family dog, long departed, was stuffed and standing next to the fireplace. RIP Sparky."
• "The main distraction was dirt. Although there was the tiny child who proudly showed us the refrigerator full of ‘Daddy’s beer’ just outside an upstairs bedroom."
