President Hugh's Message.
Tēnā koutou katoa
What a privilege it was last week to welcome Natasha Hammond as a guest invited by Gilly. Natasha has completed a membership application already and wishes to join our wonderful group of Rotarians.
Gilly has started the new Rotary year in fine style. She even completed a lot of material, to discuss at the promised committee meetings to be held after my turn to outline, what I hoped to achieve in my year as President.

This Week's Meeting
Tuesday 13th July 2021
Katy Houstoun (from 'Multicultural Aoraki') talking to us about 'Services Being Offered to Migrants'.
Followed by a Directors Meeting for the Board at Lynette & Lionel's (166B North St).
Members are reminded to put in an apology for the meeting by noon on Monday (otherwise they are liable to be charged) - click on the following link to apologise:-

Next Weeks Meeting
Tuesday 20th July 2021
Club Night.
Members are reminded to put in an apology for the meeting by noon on Monday (otherwise they are liable to be charged) - click on the following link to apologise:-

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 Hugh 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.

Changeover Article.
Make sure you read The Timaru Courier article on page 23 of this weeks issue on our changeover night.

Theme Pin Presentation.
One of Hugh's first tasks on Tuesday evening was to give our Treasurer Jenny and Charitable Trust Chair Bev their Rotary theme pins as they missed our fab changeover last week.

One Unclaimed Rotary Club Members Photo.
Jess has one unclaimed copy of our club members photo (taken earlier this year), if you ordered one & have yet to receive it please contact Jess.

Just A Reminder Now That Changeover Has Occurred.
Now that we are in a new Rotary year our generic Presidents email address (  has changed hands from Jess to Hugh.
Should you wish to get in touch with Jess, please email her on her personal email address (
NOTE: All Executive Email Addresses (i.e. President, Secretary & Treasurer) are listed on the LHS of the bulletins.

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.
I was waiting at a small train station when a man put up a sign regarding my train: “30-Minute Delay.”
“What happened?” I asked.
“The train went off the rails,” he said.
“How long will that take to fix?”
“Quite a few hours.”
“So why put up a sign saying it would take 30 minutes?”
“It’s the only sign we have.”
My friend Garrick had the solution to forgetting his wife’s birthday and their wedding anniversary: He opened an account with a local florist and provided it with both dates as well as instructions to send flowers and a card signed “Your loving husband, Garrick.”
For a few years, it worked. Then one day, Garrick came home on their wedding anniversary. He saw the flowers on the dining room table and said, “What nice flowers. Where did you get them?”
A nurse in a hospital’s children’s ward one night while at the nurses’ station heard a little boy in his room talking.
He kept the patter up for some time. Finally, she got on the intercom and said softly but firmly, “All right, Johnny, it’s time to go to sleep now.”
There was quiet in the room, and then he said, “OK, God, I will.”
She didn’t hear a peep from him until morning.
