Thought for the week
Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation. - Michael Jordan 

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.

Thank You

President Cheryl's Message.
Hi everyone
Another week where the speaker cancelled at the last minute.  Robyn however has them backed up for the future few weeks.

We had a great chat though, particularly about some future fundraisers.  Pleasing to see some had started reading books from the members book review.  Great thing with that is everyone borrowing each other’s books.  Now that’s what you call positive Rotary Fellowship!

Change of mind for next week, we will be on zoom with our planning night (yes another one).  See below newsletter item for details and ideas for you to think about.

Enjoy your long weekend
Yours aye

This Weeks Meeting
Tuesday 7th June
Club Night
NOTE:- This will be a 'Zoom ONLY' meeting - Commencing at 6:30pm - No meeting at TTCC.

Club Night Planning.

When we hook up via zoom next week the Chairs of the various sub-committees will have met.  We will have identified some goals for next year and listed some ideas that cost little but our time.  It’s all about surfacing from Covid bigger and better.  So, if you have some goals you want to see for the club, some ideas for activities and projects, bring them along to our virtual meeting.  We won’t achieve our goals if we don’t all get behind them.

See you on the big or small screen.

TTCC Meal Cost Change.
We have been informed by the Club Manager that due to increases in ingredient and staff costs they have had to increase their meal prices to us. They gave us an option of $20 for a main meal or $29 for a main plus dessert.
As a result of the voting (thru the link sent out by email last Saturday by Jess) future meals are going to be the $20 main meal option.

We managed to chop just over half of the boxes available (so will be looking at having another Saturday morning in July).

Editors Humour.

A man rang the doctor and said, “Quick! My pregnant wife’s going into labour, what should I do?” He said, “Is this her first child?” The man said, “No, this is her husband.”

Asked to write a composition entitled, "What I'm thankful for on Thanksgiving," Little Johnny wrote, "I am thankful that I'm not a turkey."
A male hippo said to a female hippo "You look like you’re gaining weight".
Female Hippo answered, "That’s very hippo-critical of you".
