Presidents Piece - 4 August 2020
From President Richard
Mary and I are till learning how to do the new Bulletin. a little bit different each week.
Thank you all for participating in our “Committee of the Whole”. There were some clear themes that came through around our meeting structure. We want social events, we want some informal meetings and we will meet regularly. This feedback has been considered by the board and we will be looking to introduce some changes starting in September.
Around community involvement there were suggestions of working with other service groups or organisations and working with other Rotary clubs.  At our Cluster Presidents meeting on Thursday it was evident that the other clubs in our cluster also feel the same way, so watch out for opportunities to work alongside our neighbouring Rotarians.
We are working on a book fair, the important thing at this stage is to get a venue, watch this space.
Around International projects I highlighted a few of the projects going on in the Pacific Islands. We have our own opportunity with the toilets in Fiji.
I can see a busy and fruitful year ahead, let’s “make it happen” and every bit as important, “let’s have fun”.
It was also my privilege to present a Directors pin to Louise Munro as she has now been co-opted to the board.  Welcome Louise I am sure you will make a valuable contribution.
