NEWSLETTER – 3 APRIL 2018

TUESDAY, 3rd April 2018,

MOUNTIES,

101 Meadows Road,

Mount Pritchard.

This will be a partners and guests fellowship night,

 

Our meeting last Tuesday was our first official meeting in our new digs at the Mounties Club, The Elizabeth room where we will normally meet is ideal for us, the Club has provided us with a lockable storage cupboard adjacent to the room.

The new arrangements worked well – order dinner in the Bistro which is then delivered to the meeting room and the meeting opens at 7pm. One humourous side was that the agenda calls for the Rotary Grace which had to be sung after the meal.

Apologies were received from John Pillay, Rinna Ly and Shiva Nandan.

Vocational Director Joe Cauchi proposed a vocational visit in the near future. President Elect Jim Rudling advanced the ABC Tissues plant as an option. He will make contact to arrange a visit.

President Elect Jim Rudling reported that he has vacancies on his team for 2018-19 for the positions of President Elect, International Director and Program coordinator.

After discussions on an investigation by Geoff Gibbs for a Club outing for “Christmas in July” he will now firm up on the location and the timing of the event.

The President of Mounties Kevin Lynch dropped in to welcome us to the Club and Function Manager Maria also checked to ensure we had everything we needed. If you are not already a member of Mounties we urge you to join.

 


Members Raffle Jackpot will be $20.00 on 3rd April 2018.
