Weekly Message - 25th July
Last Monday we had a guest speaker from the Rotary Club of Upper Northern Beaches. It was good to see other clubs have also found that there is strength in numbers. We wish them continued success, as they seem to be going from strength to strength.
Friday night was our Trivia Night in conjunction with Hornsby Hospital. We sold 250 tickets, and filled almost 26 tables. There were 7 rounds, consisting of 4 general knowledge questions, 2 rounds of music questions, and 1 featuring movie clips. Gail emailed saying she counted the money, and it came to $12,500, including ticket purchases.
Congratulations to Gail & Liesl for organising a great night. I heard many complimentary remarks about the night from participants. With our new, larger, club we can look forward to more of these events, without over-taxing the “few”. It just goes to show that when we all pull together we the sum of the whole really does exceed the parts combined.
This week’s meeting’s topic is Rotary Heath Research Fund. This is an important program, and one we might start supporting even more than before, with some of our international funds.
The following week will not be a normal meeting, but rather a Board meeting, where Directors of the “former” clubs of Waitara & Hornsby will meet to map out the leadership plans for this year. I imagine there will be a lot of discussion regarding project, programs, and expenditures.
Simon & I are still putting final touches on the new web site. We have received some feedback, and put in place the requested changes. I think it pretty much set now, as far as design. We are putting in the ability for the weekly bulletin, but otherwise pretty much the base it there. We do need, however, content. Perhaps Directors would like to send reports to the Bulletin Editor, for inclusion in the bulletin and on the web site. I know our Editor would really appreciate the submissions.
