Last week
 24 Members and speaker Tracey Pleasants
 
12 April
at the Dunedin Club ,33 Melville Street
A joint meeting with Dunedin Central which will be the Rotary District Speech Contest. The cost $30 ( in CASH) - no extra money required.  Janet needs APOLOGIES by NOON SUNDAY.
 
Dunedin Harbour Speech contest participant 
Grace Johnston was going to present to our 5 April meeting but is being forced to isolate due to covid. She will have to go in blind to the contest.
 
Last weeks speaker   
Tracey Pleasants, the marketing manager of Foleys gave us a rundown on the extraordinary growth of the organisation.  Starting in plumbing in 1934 with Brian Foley's father, Albert, they are now employing the 4th generation of the Foley family. The firm is now involved in electrical, gasfitting, drainlaying and mechanical as well as plumbing. Over the last 20 years they have expanded beyond Dunedin and are in nine other South Island locations and in the last three years, in three North Island locations.  Much of the growth has come from take overs of existing businesses. In the 60's when Brian took over there were 4 employees, they now have 260 tradespeople plus 55 apprentices.  80 of those staff are in Dunedin.  
Their motto is "Above and Beyond, Every Time".  They have a commitment that, if they turn up later than 30 minutes after their designated arrival time, the first hours work will be free of charge. The company is owned by the employees who, after 2 years employment, can buy into the firm.  They have a 6 members directorate with three external directors who meet every 2 months. 
 
Rotary Foundation donations.  
It was agreed that we should recommend to the Charitable Trust trustees that we pay $125 per member to the General Fund of the  Rotary Foundation.  
 
Future meeting venue 
The result of the poll was for a return to the University Staff Club which will occur at the beginning of May.  Pres Phil believed we should use Cobb and Co as a back up if there were times when the Staff Club was unavailable.  
 
Gutter cleaning 
Annette is concerned that if Jill gets up and clears her own gutters something nasty might happen. Is there any Rotarian (probably male) able to help. Jill's phone is 4771578, address 22 Belgrave Crescent 
 
Otago Car Rally - Sunday 10 April. 
We have the number of volunteers required- thankyou 
 
Outward Bound Sponsorship
Each year, the JR McKenzie Youth Education Fund sponsors young people to attend a 21 day Outward Bound Course.  This year is no different and we are fortunate to have two scholarships to give away, therefore we are again on the hunt for potential course participants.
 
The J R McKenzie Youth Education Fund is providing two scholarships of $4,025 towards the course cost of $5,495 for two young school aged people (aged 16-18) to attend a Mind Body and Soul course at Outward Bound. The balance of $1,470 is payable by the student (or sponsor). Outward Bound have indicated that they do appreciate the balance payable may be a barrier for many people so will speak to each person about how much they can realistically contribute to the course
 
The course duration is 21 days and will be held from the 5th to 25th of July 2022.  This is a great opportunity for two young people from our district to attend.  The selected candidates will need to find their own way at their cost to and from Picton.
 
Ideal candidates would not normally be the head boy or girl of their school or those that may have such an opportunity via another source, but someone who would benefit greatly from attending, who otherwise would not normally get the opportunity to attend.
 
Can you please share this opportunity with your Youth Committee, the high schools or other youth groups you look after and see if anyone is keen to apply.  If they are, have them complete the attached enrolment form then interview the candidates at a club level to ascertain whether or not they are suitable.  The committee will accept ONE application per club/school for consideration. Please forward me their application no later than Friday the 29th April 2022.  Due to time constraints and the popularity of this Outward Bound opportunity, no late applications will be accepted.
 
Remaining trees 
Still some to be split.
 Weather permitting it will be on this Saturday from about 9.30am.
Take the turn into Gladstone Road at the Z service station by the railway line then head south.125 Gladstone Road entrance is at the white pickets with the Liberton Sign. Left at the first fork and then right at the 125 Chapman sign. Drive past the house and park around the side. Then walk past the white outside table and down to the trees.
