Presidents Report – 9th to 15th October

Thank you to the Club members for your support of the Christmas Raffle at the Lifeline book fair.  As you know we sold just under $2,000.00 of tickets.  I enjoyed the comradeship at the launch.  .  Not everyone likes to sell raffle tickets and that is understandable.  Just having fellow Rotarians support filling out raffle tickets was appreciated. It was great to have that fantastic support from one of our recipients for the Christmas Raffle,…

Presidents Report – 18th to 24th September

This week was a little slower in pace as far as the number of activities for Rotary and our Club goes. This slower pace gave me an opportunity to contact our Friends of Rotary and to give them an overview of our upcoming events.  It’s important to keep our contact with these folk as well as those who are club members. Wednesday night was the club board meeting held at Shellharbour Village.  The meeting gave…
