Rotary Bulletin- 21 September 2020 – Meeting
Next meeting at 5.30 pm on Monday 28 September
Attendance: 22 members, 2 guests and speaker.
Sergeant’s session: $49.10
Toast: Andy Duncan – to Carers who look after those who are unable to look after themselves.
TWO-MINUTE TALK – Dave Norrie gave us some instruction on how to see if a website or email is fake. The URL is the important thing to look at, the Uniform Resource Locator describes it is the location of the source of the information you are looking at. The URL is in either the www. address or a link to an email address. If you are concerned about a link or email please check with who supposedly sent the email before clicking any links.
GUEST SPEAKER – Susan Haldain spoke to us about Love, Care, Loss. Susan has a special interest in grief and has trained in this area. Having a daughter born with a genetic deficiency which caused lifelong disability means that Susan and her husband became lifetime carers. She spoke about dominant narratives and alternative stories. I don’t have enough knowledge to explain this but if you want further information, here is a site that has some of the information that Susan spoke about. Susan was an interesting speaker who showed her empathy for situations and also a high level of knowledge in her area of expertise. I found her topic both interesting and worth further research.
Meet the Candidates night
This is on the 28th of September. Please forward to Rob Brangwin any questions you would like the candidates to answer. This will be a partners and visitors night. QUESTIONS – As Rotary members have the prerogative of putting questions to the candidates, please ensure that you do get some questions to Rob. Please make these good open questions that can be answered by all parties. We only have until Monday 21st to have the questions finalised so that we have time to format them and get them out to candidates in time. Please email these to Rob on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr Ian Allen George Abernethy.
Paul Harris Fellow and Sapphire Pin
This is the eulogy that Scott Henderson presented at Ian’s funeral.
With an Uncle Headmaster of the Masterton Agriculture College and a District Governor of Rotary to boot, Dr Ian Abernethy had the Background and “genes” to become a Rotarian.
In 1963 the then District Governor of the Hawke’s Bay and Central Region, Earnest Velvin, approached local Businessmen with the view to Establishing a local Havelock North Rotary Club
The Rest is History, that is, with the assistance of the Hastings Club at the Time.
Dr Ian joined the Club in 1963 as a Charter and Founding member and was a committed Rotarian… more…
Carnival Day 10th October
To: Rotarians & Friends of Rotary, Havelock North Rotary Club have been asked to act as road closure guides in Havelock North Village while this year’s Carnival is happening (8am to 3pm). I think it best if we divide the Guard times into
(A) 8am until 11.30am
(B) 11.30am until 3pm
(C) 8am until 3pm.
Please advise Gerry Townsend which time section you will be available to cover and he will allocate the Road Closure position that you will be allocated to. It would be great if we can have 2 people at each road block to help the time pass quickly!! Gerry Townsend Mob: 0274333835 Landline: 8770017 email: email@example.com.
The trailer raffle will also be running on the day of the Carnival, please let David Smith or Jessica Duffy know if you are able to help out with the Raffle.
PARTING THOUGHT – Bill Riley – Why cyclists are bad for the economy
Please note these arrangements: If you are rostered on for duty but find you are unavailable it is your responsibility to arrange a replacement for yourself. Once this is done, email Stephen Randal at firstname.lastname@example.org and advise him of the change.
