Meeting President Graeme was in the chair and welcomed the following - Ken Hird formally South, John Tindle - looking at membership, Maurice Mildenhall and Mike Miller (with wife June), both transferring in tonight from South. He also welcomed Clive Rennie (and wife Ann) transferring from Oamaru and Gerry Hardie (with wife Judie) who will be formally introduced and inducted later tonight. Welcome also to Margaret Chainey and Alison Safey. Welcome back from overseas Sue, Brian and Lynn. Brian thanked those members who helped out while he was away but commented that it was a shame that the Almoner didn't visit him in Greece when he spent 8 days in hospital. Graeme reminded members that Tuesday 24th October will be Polio Plus Day and that Cluster have worked out a costing on the Waimarie which was as follows - boat hire reduced from $1500 to $1200, food was $20 per head, sailing at 5.30 pm lasting 2 hours and there would be a 3 piece band on board. The trip was going to be called "Paddle Steamer for Polio" and cost to members was $40 per head with 90 people needed for the above figures to balance out. Winner of the raffle, Evert, abetted Sgt Ameen, complete with red wine stained long sleeves of his formal dress shirt, in fining Lynn $24 and Brian $14 for absent dues, Deon's noisy table, Terry for being too quiet and Judge Judy for his table being neglected.

Clive Rennie - was originally Rotary North in 1986 that due to work commitments and travel had been in 9 different Rotary organisations e.g. Foxton, Cook Islands, Timaru and Otago.

District donations are returned and made available for grants on a 3 year cycle. The Global Grant has helped projects like roof over Tonga and Polio eradication (matched 2 for 1 by the Gates Foundation).

If you are not able to attend please arrange a replacement

Reports Colin - The potatoes will be available next Wednesday. Sue - Friday 13th October was Pink Ribbon Day, needed 5 people outside Countdown - this was arranged. Also Polio Boxes for loose change were here to be collected. Mike - That he was trying to organise volunteers for Trailer Raffle sales 2 weeks in advance and had the numbers for next 2 weekends. Cranleigh - showed pictures of Bushy Park front fence area - clearing of the entrance, placing in the large post (these cost, with the turned capital areas on the top, over $2000 each) concrete footings and Bryce and Wilf praying to the East in front of the pickets. The end result is truly magnificent. Tony – Pak’nSave had donated large amount of produce. Rotary Stakes tickets now available for Rotary members at $25 per person. Graeme thanked members and had the parting thought - the way for a person or a club to be well thought of in its community is to do something for that community.
