THIS WEEKS MEETING  Tuesday 7 June 
Katlyn Brown form the IHC Volunteering Organisation 
 
Last weeks meeting  
  • Gardening Project. Stuart was backed up by his wife, Rebecca, John Campbell, Lloyd, Stephen Johnston, Chris, Les and David Goodchild.  Pres Phil turned up to offer moral support and some home baking to add to the substantial morning tea provided by the grateful hosts.  There is still some work to be done and this is likely to be an ongoing project 
  • Changeover.  This is due to take place on 28 June- same venue, same meal.  Intending to invite Warren, the guy who chops Pip's trees down to come to this meeting.  
  • Trees revenue.  Russell was put on the spot as to the money raised.  He expects we could finish up with close to $20,000. 
  • President 2023 -2024.  Past President (Dunedin North) John Campbell has put his hand up for this position.  
  • Incoming Pres Lloyd spoke about his coming year.  He prefaced this by thanking Pres Phil (who stepped up and repeated being President) for the way he has steered the Club through this difficult year. In a zoom meeting with the Area people he had confirmation that covid has been hitting Rotary Clubs hard and this could have an effect on membership. Connections have been lost and service opportunity have been made difficult.  Considering our club attributes Lloyd enjoyed our collegiality, our community engagement, the support we give to the various Rotary programmes and the community projects.  Looking to the future there will be a need to rejuvenate our support of community programmes, to look at membership numbers, to consider the various traditions including meeting frequency and the format of meetings.  We need to engage all member as well as co-opt other members of the community. 
  • Jenness considered that the acclaim that Jacinda Ardern had gained for NZ with her award of an honorary doctorate from Harvard should be recognised 
  • Burns Fellow Robert Lord's  Garden.  Jenness mentioned that the Trust which maintains this home as a writers retreat needed some maintenance and suggested it as a project. 
  • Joint Rotary Clubs wood project.  There is a large amount of wood at Burnside which needs to be split.  It is being proposed as a joint club project with a charity o be agreed on. 
  •  Staff Club meal costs.  The Staff Club are investigating and will make a proposal with regards to minimum numbers and cost.  It could be a return to Cobb and Co!! 
  • Rotary Magazine.  David Will investigate how members may change to a cheaper version of the compulsory magazine.  The costs
 What's Up
 Selwyn has recovered from covid.  Having retired after being in business for 60 years he has wondered where the last month has gone.  The cash from the sale of  the  shop has come in.  He has, however, noted that his name has been removed from the business premises. Selwyn claims he should not have waited until aged 83 to retire!!
