This week started with a very good Club Assembly with some 24 members in attendance and there was good discussions on a number of topics. The Raffle meeting recommended that ticket prices be raised to $5.00 per ticket and after debate it was agreed to raise the price to $5.00.
Carol Jeffs then spoke on a project that she thought the Club could get behind and that was the giving of an Illawarra Flame Tree to each new baby born in Wollongong and Wollongong Private Hospitals. There was then discussion on the Flame Tree and it was put that it might be better to have a native tree given. There was support for this project but many details were to be addressed before it begins.
There was discussion on whether club members would support a social BBQ on a Saturday for club members. There was agreement that this would be good but a Sunday might be a better day for it. A Sunday in the near future will be organised.
The Battery was also raised that a working bee was very much needed. I have spoken to Wollongong Council and paint will be supplied when I am able to tell them how much paint is required.
A number of Glenhaven members were present at our meeting in order to have a further meeting in planning for the 2018 trip to the Philippines directly after.
Up and coming events are:
Fri 29 Sep : District Governor Stephen Britten will be at our meeting so it would be wonderful to have as many members in attendance as possible
Fri 13 Oct : Mad Hat day raising money for mental health.
Wed 25 Oct : Halloween Night at the TAFE College Tickets available
Sat 28 Oct : Rotary 90 Year Celebration in Wollongong City Beach Function Centre
Wed 22 Nov : Combined Meeting at Dapto. Solar Lights will be the topic.
