Update from our President
Last meeting, we welcomed District Governor Heath Chong, who gave a talk to us about
membership and the various district programs. Heather is a very busy lady, given this
was meeting three of the four club visits she had that week!

                On the fund-raising side of things, it is good to see Tommy had an outing
                over the last two Saturdays at Salamanca.

                We are also starting to get enquiries about Trash and Treasure, so once
                we have approval for Lincoln St car park, we should be able to move
                forward on this.

                  I can report as well that the Clarence Sunrise Club had a successful
Bunnings BBQ on the 22nd of August. Indications are that these BBQ’s are now grossing
similar figures to the pre-covid period. They are also looking to organize a quiz night in
November to raise funds for a Malaria Project.

Talking about fund raising, I was invited to a golf day jointly well organized by the
Claremont & Glenorchy Clubs two Sundays ago. It served two purposes, one to fund
raise (which netted $6,000) and a dry run for the AGFR (Australian Golfers Fellowship of
Rotary) National event next year in Hobart. Well done to both clubs.

Lastly, a reminder that meeting costs will increase to $25 with a meal and $5 without.
This will include the cost of two up and coffee.

                          Did You Know?

When we fund raise it is relatively easy to make comparative measurements
of success - We just look at the amount of money raised by each activity.

In these COVID times, money raising ventures have become rarer, but we
have been busy.

Recently John Cole organised Rotary Clubs on the Eastern Shore to help with
the vaccination rollout. If we count John's time co-ordinating, Neville's time
designing the club roster and the amount of time members attended the
Rosny Bowls Club assisting with the vaccination program, there would be a lot
of hours.

For argument's sake let us say it comes to 100 hours. (It is probably a great
deal more than that.) - If we go on an hourly wage rate, eg $20...... our club
raised the equivalent of $2,000 - However if we used an invoiced hourly rate
of $60.......our club raised the equivalent of $6,000.

It is important we measure our volunteer time - but it can be complex -
some activities would cost more than others. What do you all think?
