From the pen of President John Moriarty:

As we come to the last formal Club meeting for 2015, I think we can all take credit for the good progress made whilst still leaving plenty of opportunity for the next 6 months!

Selected milestones include:
  • New members
  • Lucie's Global Scholarship
  • assistance to Karri for her study in Oklahoma
  • Support for Mount Cook School from our readers and assistance to children attending a school camp
  • Donation to the Rotary Foundation
  • Support for 2 street-day appeals
  • Successful Firework fundraiser
  • Successful fundraiser for The Soup Kitchen
  •  - not to forget the fellowship evening at the Theatre and the Xmas Puds!

The BigDig is underway, we have a succession plan in place, our accounts are systematised (at last) and the administration of GST is at an end.

Our focus on making an impact with Courtenay Place Charities is beginning to gel and we can capitalise on this to recruit new members and sponsors.

All in all, a very good start!

My thanks to all of you for the "buzz" that is evident at our meetings and the encouraging feedback from our visitors.

I wish you and your families a very safe and happy festive season and look forward to your support and fellowship when we resume on January 29th.
