March Rotary Theme is Water and Sanitation
 
Clean water and sanitation is a human right. When people, especially children, have access to clean water,
sanitation, and hygiene, they lead healthier and more successful lives.
u
We don’t just build wells and walk away. Rotary members integrate water, sanitation, and hygiene into
education projects. When children learn about disease transmission and practice good hygiene,
they miss less school. And they can take those lessons home to their families, expanding our impact.
 

Hi everyone for 30 March 2020 meeting

Some new bits from my role as Moderator.

Golden Rule : Mute your audio unless you are speaking.

Please always keep your mike switched to mute unless announcing your wish to speak or have been invited to speak. Too many people talking at the same time causes chaos, and as moderator I may need to mute mikes that I see on.

I suggest a pause in proceedings at the 30 minute mark for a stretch/cuppa coffee/”Rotarian pick me up.”

For those who need refreshing I have found a 6 minute video on the basics of running Skype which is not too “nerdy”. You can always pause and go back.

Looking forward to chatting on Monday.

Log onto Skype at 6.15pm to be ready for me to call the group at 6.25pm. Kick off at 6.30pm.

(do not skype call me, I will group call you, thx)

As welfare officer I would like all members to buddy up with another member and keep in contact. If member is unwell or needs anything please let me or (Alan Bishop who has offered to help with welfare) know.
 
Maureen gave a brief golf report, it looks like we raised about $25,000.    $6000 with the loud auction, $1000 on the small raffle and over $8000 in the major raffle.
 
Michael Koch mentioned that the express will put in a thank you to all the sponsors for the golf day. Thanks to all the Rotarians that made this a successful day.
 
Vocational Chair Maureen spoke about the RJCA program. Maureen will contact the schools and ask how they are going to proceed in this time of uncertainty we may need to defer the program this year.
 
International Chair Peter has been in contact with Judy Stewart from Lowanna and she asked if members of Rotary could volunteer to help with a community garden at Lowanna, this will need to be passed onto the community chair  Lyn and at the moment the schools are closed, we will look at this in the future.
 
Len will ask for an extension on time for the grant from district for the garden beds at the Botanic gardens.
Alan Bishop encouraged all members to have a look at the progress of the playground at the Botanic gardens, it looks good.
Di Harrison informed the club that MUNA has been cancelled for this year.
Please join us for our next meeting via skype on Monday 30th of March at 6:30pm.
