Club Notices

Operating under COVID
The Board has implemented Rotary NZ recommendations for managing Rotary meetings under the COVID Response Framework (Red “traffic light”).
Members will be required to show their vaccine passport at each meeting.  Secretary Robert will record the expiry dates of all passports.  Speakers and guests will have to show their passports too.
This approach respects the requirements of our hosting venue Cedarwood; our caterer Ian and his livelihood and ensures we do as much as we can to protect them, our members and our families/friends.
Air NZ Credit for sale
The club is offering $460 credit with Air NZ for sale for $400.
Originally the fare was to send President Rodger to President Elect training in Christchurch, but due to COVID, turned into a Zoom conference and the flights were no longer needed.
The credit expires in January 2023.
All enquiries to Steve Botica please.  Be quick.  First in first served

The meeting
This meeting was a club forum, providing an update on various projects and covering some specific issues.

Due to the restrictions on numbers of people at an indoor event, this event has been postponed to a date to be set.

On hold at present.
Healthy Heroes (Waikanae School)

Donation from Graham Benbrook & family
Steve Botica advised he had taken delivery of an electric scooter that Graham and family has donated to Rotary.  The family were happy for the club to do with the scooter as they thought fit.  It was discussed at the Board and in the meeting and decided that we should look to sell it on TradeMe and use the funds for an appropriate project.
Presidency 2021-22
President Rodger has advised the Board that he is due to have an operation at the end of February that will require a recovery period of at least two months. The Board discussed the matter and resolved that David Bruce would act as president until Rodger returned and completed his year.
in order to prepare for the operation, Rodger and Leonie have been asked to isolate and so will not be at Rotary until the recovery is complete.
The Board, all members and partners wish Rodger and Leonie all the best for the operation and his recovery.
