This is just a short report to remind you all that there will be NO MEETING this Monday.
Last Monday a very intimate meeting was held at which we recapped on the Club's distribution of funds raised for the year which was over $60,000. You should all be very proud of this great result, a full listing of which will be presented in the Club Annual Report.
New member Johnny Parello gave us a 5 minute background on his life before Rotary and answered questions from the floor, complete with some laughs and a special treat for Mary!
We welcome back Rudi & Gaynor from the Rotary International Conference in Sydney and look forward to a report from them at a coming meeting.
Our Best wishes go to John McDonald who is currently recovering in St John of God Hospital following a procedure this week, we wish John a speedy recovery.
Please remember to respond "Accept or Decline" to the email invitations to the Clubs two upcoming events, The Celebration & Giving Night on Thursday 19th June and the Annual Changeover Luncheon on Sunday 29th June.
Once you have registered you will automatically be set up with a fundraising page.
To help us in reaching our fundraising target, everyone who reaches $25 will receive a limited edition A Walk in the Park 2014 t-shirt. If you are fundraising together as a family or group then the equivalent of $25 per member needs to be reached in order for all members to receive a limited edition A Walk in the Park 2014 t-shirt.
If you cannot meet one of your assigned duties, it is your responsibility to arrange for another member to take your place.
The duty team should arrive no later than 6:00 p.m. Besides the below duties, the assigned team is responsible for Room Setup, Greeting Members and Guests, and Room Tidy at the end of our meeting - see checklist in storeroom or click here .

Apologies must be made no later than 9.00AM , on the Monday of the meeting (unless other arrangements were addressed in the Bulletin).
