Thought for the week
Negative results are just what I want. They’re just as valuable to me as positive results. I can never find the thing that does the job best until I find the ones that don’t. - Thomas A. Edison

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.

President Cheryl's Message.
Hi everyone
Firstly thanks to all who attended or zoomed in on our AGM last Tuesday.  Not everyone’s favourite meeting but one of two a year we must have.  No changes to most of the structure from last year.  Nice to have some consistency.  Lynette Wilson is confirmed as our President-Elect.  I look forward to working with her for the benefit of our community.  It was so good to meet face to face and the chatter filled the room long after the meeting finished.

Next week we have our changeover dinner at the Club.  Don’t forget to wear a black tie, how or on what is up to you.  This will be another opportunity for members to catch up face to face and let our hair down if you haven’t tied it up with a black-tie!  We will hold the proceedings at the beginning of the meeting so we can also zoom in before the commencement of dinner.

See you next Tuesday ready to party

Editors Humour.

Think it’s easy being a landlord? Check out these tenant complaints:

“The toilet is blocked, and we cannot bathe the children until it is cleared.”

“Fifty per cent of the walls are damp, 50 per cent have crumbling plaster, and 50 per cent are just plain filthy.”

“My wife tripped and fell on it yesterday, and now she is pregnant.”

“I request permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen.”

“I wish to report that tiles are missing from the outside toilet roof. I think it was bad wind the other day that blew them off.”

“It’s the dog’s mess that I find hard to swallow.” 

Fred's father-in-law asked his wife what he should name his new boat.
She said, “Name it after me.”
The next time she saw the boat, it had 'After Me' on the back of it.
Russell's wife is a very adventurous cook. “How does this sound?” she called out from the kitchen, “Bonito, surimi, and anchovies in a decadent, silky broth.”
“Sounds delicious,” Russell hollered back. “Is that what we’re having tonight?”
“No. I’m reading from this packet of cat food.”
On my way home from her mother’s, Jess realized she'd left her cell phone at her house. So she went back to get it. Upon retrieving it, she noticed she had a message from Mom. She’d texted, “You left your phone."
