General Notices:

* Member's Messages: 
From Michael: “No one enjoys getting a diagnosis of cancer, which in my case is advanced prostate cancer. I can report however that I have completed both the initial hormone treatment and more recently during the lockdown the radiation treatment and the results have been beneficial with reduction in pain levels around the hip area. My mobility is reduced but I still manage a walk around the block most days aided by one crutch. Scans show no spread of cancer beyond nearby bones and I remain positive about my outlook. In particular I am planning a good celebration of my 80th birthday in July 2021." 
* Cyclone Harold:  Dave Wilson has recommended that any donations to help replenish ERK’s by our Club Members should be through our Club Treasurer.
* Children's Hospital Raffle: Our District is running this fundraising raffle for the Family/Whanau Rooms.  This will now be drawn on 30th June and Jan Palmer has tickets available until it closes.  Anyone who is able to take a book or two to sell to family/friends/work colleagues, would be appreciated.  It's a great cause!
