All that we are is the result of what we have thought. - Buddha

President Cheryl's Message
Hi everyone
Thanks, Emma for briefing us on legislative changes to the Privacy Act and their application within our Club. Very informative.
Now we are on trial (so to speak). We are trialling a different meeting format. We will be having a speaker every alternate week. The other meeting will be a meet and greet over dinner only. We will still have the Sergeant and raffle so don’t forget your small change. And there’s nothing stopping you having a drink with your Rotary mates after dinner instead of going home early.
We will incorporate small bites of Club business sometimes on our meet and greet evenings. It is only a trial so make sure you give me or other Board members feedback as it rolls out.
Hope you are enjoying the last of the summer weather.
Yours aye

Editors Humour
When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.
A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.
When you've seen one shopping Center you've seen a mall.
Did you hear about the fellow whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.
A bicycle can't stand alone; it is two tired.
