President's report to Club Forum - 21 November 2022
The new Rotary year got off to a wonderful start with the celebration of the 60th anniversary dinner held at the Boulcott Heritage Farm Golf Club on 29th June.  It was a real pleasure to present the latest of Paul Harris fellowships to an ex-member of our club Sir John Clarke.  Since then, our committees have all been busy on projects and I will entrust the respective Board members that lead our committees to report on the activities they have been engaging in so far.
Directors' Reports to Club Forum - 2022
The various Committee Chairs spoke about their activities since the 1st July.  Here is a summary of their activities....

General Notices

* Club Polo Shirts

We have three important (public) events coming up, for which the wearing of the club polo shirt gives members a sense of identity and the public a visual image that we are working on behalf of Eastern Hutt Rotary.  These events are the raffle ticket sales, the golf tournament, and the Walk for Mental Health. (There will be other events later)
Jaye has a restricted number of shirts available and will bring them to Monday’s meeting for sale. Cost is $25.00
1 x size 8
2 x size 16
4 x size 20
* Entertainment Books
See Anne if you are interested in buying one, and she will help you to get started, even if you want the book for a different city from Wellington.
* Christmas Puddings
If you would like one or more, please see Anne with your order as soon as possible.  Last year they ran out before they had completed all the orders!!  They are $23 this year.

The Power of Positivity

Parting Thought 
Linda Goss-Wallace provided the parting thought for the evening. Thank you Linda
"Why be a Volunteer
Its not the money, it's not the fame 
and it's not for any personal gain
It's just for love of fellow man
It's just to lend a helping hand 
It's just to give a tithe of self
That's something you can't buy with wealth
It's not the medals worn with pride 
It's just for that feeling deep inside 
It's that reward down in your heart 
It's feeling that you've been a part 
of helping others far and near
That's what makes you a VOLUNTEER" 

Rostered Duties & Responsibilities:

Please study and plan ahead, especially if your Committee needs to provide an updated Report.  A reminder that it's also your responsibility to find a replacement if you are unable to fulfil your duty.
