Presidents Piece - 21 July 2020
From President Richard
Mary and I are till learning how to do the new Bulletin, this one will have a little more than last week
This week we our meeting will give all members the chance to have their input into the running of the club our club for the next 6 – 12 months.  I have called the process "Committee of the Whole" this is a Parliamentary term that refers to the entire house debating a bill.
As the running of ‘Our Club’ is important and affects all of us, it is equally important that we all get to have some input.  Ideas have already been floated about the regular meeting format, should this continue to be weekly or should this be bi-weekly meal meeting with a “Zoom Meeting” and Committee Meetings / Projects rounding out the other two meetings, or should we do some more Social activities and if so what.
We have many opportunities this coming year to do things within the Local Community, the District, Nationally and Internationally.  Locally the last few Saturdays have seen members from Northern Suburbs Rotary Clubs help KCA move premises.  There is still quite a bit to be done with at least one more Saturday planned.  Tracy has told me there are some opportunities for some ‘hands on’ on a Tuesday evening in next few months.
As part of the NZ Rotary Centenary projects there is a plan to carry out planting at the Taupo Swamp at Plimmerton, a few thousand trees are up for planting.
We have the wonderful Breast Milk Bank project coming up, this may not take a large amount of labour input but will certainly benefit from members who can provide Managerial or Project Management Skills.
Internationally we have said we will help the Rotary Club of Fiji with the provision of toilets, this will be of special benefit and safety to women and girls.  The toilets are not expensive and hundreds are needed, but we can start small.  We also have the chance to help school libraries with books, we were told the Fijian Government has provided the buildings but no books, so you have lovely purpose built buildings with bare shelves.
We also have the opportunity to support an Immunisation program in the Pacific Islands “Give Every Child a Future”
Some of these project will be very hands on and some will require other skills.
As I have said, “This is Our Club” here is your chance to have input, previously we have tended to call these evenings a ‘Forum’ and people stayed away in their droves, let us not do that this time, let us all get together and see what we can achieve as a whole.
