Presidents Piece - 20 October
From President Richard
Our Book Fair has now had two of its planned three weekends, and thanks to Gaylene and her helpers has run during the week as well.  So far sales are well over $7500 (figures just in from Pat minutes ago).  In the uncertainty of this COVID world think that is an excellent result
We are still getting books coming in so even if it seems the trays were picked over we will have stocked them back up for the final week end.
The planting that Plimmerton Rotary is working on is on its final run this coming Saturday so if any of you would like to plant trees as a break from the Book Fair, then next Saturday at Plimmerton Domain at around 9:30am (weather permitting).
There is also the “End Polio Now” train ride / collection this coming Friday 23rd October, it would be good if we could get some collectors at Tawa station, especially during the commute hours.
Tuesday night we are making good on our offer to help KCA, as a club we said we wanted to help in the community and here is an opportunity.  There is some painting work and some stock work.  It will be as good a night as we choose to make it.
I have managed to get our program, events and speakers into Club Runner so they appear on our Website and in the Bulletin, so if you want to see what is happening read the bulletin or go to the website. Our program is also filling up with a lot scheduled between now and the end of the year, there will be something for everybody.
Let us do Rotary together.
