Presidents Piece - 22 September
From President Richard
Presidents Piece 22 September
This week we have our District Governor Gillian Jones visiting us. Our Governors visit each club during the Rotary year, something I imagine has been made more difficult with some of the COVID-19 limitations.
I was pleased to see a good degree of engagement with the committee planning session last week, and from what I saw and heard there are definitely some great opportunities on their way.
It was also good to get the books moved over to Bean Stalk on Saturday, a Book Fair now is a reality rather than a planning exercise.  Its time is not done, I posted some photos of the books stacked in the rooms at Bean Stalk and have had several my Face Book Friends wanting to know when and where as well as offer books.  So yes, this may have had a troubled birth, but it looks like it is off life support and doing nicely.
I understand the Plimmerton Planting is coming up in just over a week, I will confirm times and dates and hopefully we can give Plimmerton Rotary a good deal of support.
Let us do Rotary together.

Some directors currently have more than one area of responsibility so it will be necessary for members to get in behind them in the committees to make this work.  I have asked every one where their area of interest or passion is so you should be able to get involved with something that “Spins your Wheels”
Last Weeks Meeting 8 September 2020
Committee meetings
Last week was our first committee meetings for the year.  It was good to hear some of the things being discussed.  Denise gave a very good Presentation on Membership (well done).  Remember it is up to all of us, if Rotary means something to us should we not share it.
