President's Message

Only 8 weeks to changeover! Who's counting? Seriously though make sure you have 3rd July in your diary. A time to celebrate another Rotary year, meet our guests including Ingrid and John Waugh, our district governor and her "1st man."
Talking of guests who are you planning to bring to introduce them to our club and maybe a future of service in Rotary?
It has been a quiet week this week with committee meetings during our regular Rotary night. Thanks to the committee chairs for sharing their plans with the club. We were pleased to welcome Ross Middleton, Christine Cowdon and Bethia Cattenual as our guests.
Our numbers have been down with some members travelling and others recuperating after illness and surgery. To you all we look forward to your safe return.
Marie, our lovely exchange student, as part of her commitment has to raise funds for a good cause. She will be holding a fund raising evening on Friday 1st June with times to be advised. All money raised will go to fund an ERK (Emergency Response Kit). Please support Marie and such a good cause.
This coming Tuesday Dave Wylie and I will talk to our club about the recent district conference in Fiji.
Thought for the day:
When one door closes another door opens. If we focus on the closed door we miss our new opening.
Have a great week.
Club Liaison
John Osborne continues to make very good progress.

Polly's Report
Polly is our current overseas exchange student; here is her report.
AGING Laughs
Two guys, one old, one young, are pushing their carts around Walmart, when they collide. The old guy says to the young guy, "Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife, and I guess, I wasn't paying attention to where I was going."
The young guy says, "That's OK, it's a coincidence. I'm looking for my wife, too... I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate."
The old guy says, "Well, maybe I can help you find her... what does she look like?"
The young guy says, "Well, she is 27 years old, tall, with red hair, blue eyes, is buxom ... wearing no bra, long legs, and is wearing short shorts. What does your wife look like?"
To which the old guy says, "Doesn't matter, let's look for yours."
