General Notices

* The roster can change weekly with absences etc so please check the roster each week to see if you have a duty. 
* River Valley Rotary Club - Stokes Valley Xmas Parade - Saturday 2 December – Help Required
The parade starts at noon and runs down Stokes Valley Road to Evans Street (Speldhurst Park).  It takes 20 minutes, with adjoining roads coned off and manned by club members & volunteers.  It would be great if some of our members could assist.  The commitment would be about 90 minutes (11am - 12:30pm) with a full briefing and high viz jackets provided.  In addition, also a great opportunity to enjoy this Christmas festivity including the marketplace stalls on Speldhurst Park.  Mike has already booked 8 River Valley members to help with our Christmas Raffle selling.  It would be great if we could reciprocate! Please let Mike Fackney know if you can help.
Christmas Raffle Roster Availability
A friendly reminder to let Mike Fackney (, mob: 0212359156) know of your roster availability as soon as possible, if you haven’t already. Thank you to all who have already done so.
* Christmas Function 
 This year's Christmas function will be held on Monday 4 December.  
* Christmas Puddings 
Please contact Anne Abbott with your Christmas pudding orders as soon as possible.
Last year we were really close to not getting all of our orders, and Anne managed to get the last pudding!.  Anne's phone number is 020 4004 2404, so please, either ring her or give her your orders next Monday at Rotary.
* Entertainment Books
If you dine out, or go out for coffee, think about getting an Entertainment book.  For the first 2 weeks in November, they are giving a 25% discount on a 12 or 24 month membership, and an extra $10 donation to our Rotary Club. They make great Christmas presents.  Please contact Anne if you want to take advantage of either of these offers.
