Thought for the week
 People are more impressed by the power of our example rather than the example of our power. - Bill Clinton

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
Rotary Club of Timaru
Hot Dog Caravan
raising funds to support our community.

Zoom Zoom ( Hello In Japanese from Mazda)

I cannot Zoom in our Green Mazda 3 as it was badly hail damaged and taken off me by the insurer. Made Margaret turn yellow in a Jazzy Honda! The only way to Zoom about in lockdown is to go electronic video messaging and saves the environment plus the petrol bill is down too!
Join us on Tuesday on Zoom. You may come as you are.
You could even eat dinner at the same time if you are pressed for time.

This Week's Meeting
Tuesday 7th September 2021
Zoom Meeting 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM - Joining Dunedin Central Club to listen to guest speaker Nick Tenci (someone we helped sponsor) who is attending Oxford University.

Charitable Trust Donation.
Our Charitable Trust at its last meeting agreed to donate to RNZWCS $5,000.00 to go towards ERK's (Emergency Response Kits) in the Pacific.
In the next few weeks, RNZWCS will be sending 298 ERKs to top up Fiji following two cyclone responses last cyclone season and a further 298 to Santo, Vanuatu where the area had two devasting cyclones in recent years.

David Slade's Death.
It is with regret I write to advise that David Slade has passed away on Thursday 26 August 2021. 
David joined Rotary in April 1972 and given generously of his time and expertise over many decades. He will be missed. 
Our thoughts are with Joy and the Slade family.

Editors Humour.
  1. Quarantine has really put a damper on comedy. For months nobody has walked into a bar.
  2. The World Health Organization announced that dogs cannot contract COVID-19. Dogs previously held in quarantine can now be released. To be clear, WHO let the dogs out.
  3. Since we’re all in quarantine I guess we’ll be making only inside jokes from now on.
  4. I'm not talking to myself, I’m having a parent-teacher conference.
  5. This morning I saw a neighbour talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog–we laughed a lot.
  6. Nothing like relaxing on the couch after a long day of being tense on the couch.
  7. – Knock knock. Who is there? Seriously, don’t touch my door and get back 6 meters to social distance.
  8. Day 121 at home and the dog is looking at me like, “See? This is why I chew the furniture!”
  9. If you bought 144 rolls of toilet paper in preparation for a 14-day quarantine, you probably should have been seeing a doctor long before coronavirus.
  10. How did the health experts lie? They said a mask and gloves was enough to go to the grocery store. When I got there, everyone else had clothes on.
