Presidents Piece - 30 March 2020
from President Judith
“What a pretty pickle”…my late father used to say. And its seems that’s exactly where we all are – in a pretty pickle.
However we all are making best efforts to cope with this situation and many believe we will be here for some time. So what are you doing to cope? How are you filling your days? Do you need some assistance or just a friendly person to chat with on the other end of the phone?

I hope you’ve heard from someone in Rotary in the last few days and if you haven’t then make the effort to call them. It is up to all of us to keep in touch.
The Board are having a Zoom meeting on Tuesday evening at 7pm and we are planning a Zoom Club Meeting for later in the week. If you have a camera and microphone then I will send instructions to log in. If you haven’t then I believe you can join via your cell phone. It will just be a short ½ hour get together perhaps over a BYO drink at 5pm  this Thursday. A trial run anyway, lets give it ago.
Thank you to those who have sent condolences on the news of my uncle passing away, most appreciated.

Stay well and stay home.

All the best

Recent Meeting Update
Review of address by Nick Hewer-Hewitt, Manager, Network Performance for Wellington Water,
kindly provided by Miss Daisy
Our guest speaker was Tawa resident Nick Hewer-Hewitt from Wellington Water. Nick gave us an insight into 'Wellington's above ground emergency water network' and what we as residents must do and can expect to happen with our water supply in the event of a major earthquake.
Firstly we should have 20 litres of stored water for every person, every day for at least 7 days. More if we have pets, unwell people or small children in our home. This new quantity is because surveys of the network and supply show most areas won't get emergency supplies until at least seven days or longer after an event.
Nick outlined the above ground network that will be the main source of water from day 8 onwards, until repairs can be made to the damaged pipes. We'll get our water from a 'water collection point' within a kilometre of our home, which in turn will be supplied from 'community water stations'. There are two 'community water stations' in Tawa - one at the Tawa Fire Station and the second at Linden Park, adjacent to Tawa Cricket clubrooms.  
Thanks Malcolm

Mark Maloney  -  President 2019-20

Rotary is closely monitoring the pandemic of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, and continuously assessing the potential impact on Rotary operations, events, and members.

Your health and safety are always our top priorities. Look below for information on Rotary activities that may be affected. We will update this page as new information becomes available.

In the near term, Rotary International recommends that districts and Rotary and Rotaract clubs meet virtually, cancel, or postpone meetings and events following the advice of national and local health officials. 

Rotary encourages members and their families to take precautions to protect themselves from contracting the virus by: washing your hands often and thoroughly, putting distance between yourself and others if COVID-19 is spreading in your community, and staying home if you are sick.
