President Brian’s Report for 23rd March : Number 21
One urgent task for the Club is to complete the “Rotary Youth Volunteer Information and Declaration Form 3” which will come out to you this week and return the completed form, with the Police Check Number and expiry date, to myself if you have it. I will have to verify your referees and declare you are a suitable person according to your form to work with children. If you do not complete this form then you will not be sanctioned to work with children including any Exchange Students, Interact activities or other activities involving children. There is a lot of work involved with this and all you have to do is complete the form and give it to me on a Friday Meeting or post it.
End Trachoma will be held on 28 March at the Fraternity Club. This Friday will be the last chance to pay for your dinner ($35) to our club who will send one cheque through to Corrimal Club. I urge you to attend this educational meeting as this is a good cause which our club could be part of.
Attendance at our own meeting is still a very strong concern with only 10 members at our last meeting. We must be able to do better than this, having some 35 members in the club. When each of us joined there was a commitment from us to serve and be a good Rotarian. A part of that commitment was to attend the meetings each week. Corrimal Club has also just informed us of the attendance of the Ambassador of Indonesia on Wednesday 18 April at the Fraternity Club Fairy Meadow and have invited people to attend. The cost is $30.00 which also covers a 2 course meal. Members who wish to attend are to contact Kate Strasburg before 13 April.
There is a Board Meeting this Wednesday which will then be followed by a Club Assembly Friday. Please keep safe all week and we will meet again on Friday.
