Club Notices

29th November — We are looking to do a trip to Oamaru to check out the conference venues for Andrew Hamilton’s DG conference in 2018/2019. Leave early (3pm) to get there, check them out, have a meal then return to Dunedin.
The book sale is going fabulously! Open for a weekend and already taken over $3000! The shop is open today as well by popular demand. The plan is to be open at least Saturday and Sunday every week with potential for more if the help is there.
Purple for Polio Mufti day 28 October, see more details in the link below under 'Upcoming Events'. There are posters around the city and a facebook campaign. Get on, like and share the events on our page!
Club Development Workshop, details below:

Committees Night Summary

Tuesday's meeting was the committees night for October with some great planning for a very busy project and event schedule right through November.


There is a student from Otago Girls High School going over to Canberra on a Science and Technology exchange.
The youth team are trying to co-ordinate meetings with John McGlashan College to get the students there involved with rotary youth events and projects.
David Black will be taking 11 Rotoract members to Thailand, some who are still looking for extra funding. OUSA have granted $400 to two students to help with the trip.

Public Relations

The club website is now up and running, check it out here
The PR team are looking to get all projects and events up on the website and links from the Bulletin.
At the moment we are looking at 4 events in 4 weeks for the club so the PR team are figuring out the best strategy to prioritise events for advertising to get the best exposure all round.
Purple for polio is already out there with posters and a facebook campaign.
The book sale has a shop frontage in the main shopping street in Dunedin, facebook events and is already proving to be a fantastic fundraiser.
PR are looking to get a custom email together for members to forward to potential guests for the Foundation evening on 15th November.
PR are looking for ideas for the Foundation 100 Recipe Cookbook. 
We are looking at dedicating a club night to Clubrunner training so we can get more members up to speed with getting their event information online.
There is also district training for this on 26&27 November.


A previous club member, Fernanda will be a guest on 8 November. 
Membership are keen to have more interaction with NRG and Rotoract and maybe establish them as 'satellite' groups of our club. Hence increasing membership and average age.
Membership encourage people, especially new members to introduce more people to the club.
Suggestion that more visits for the club would be good to make it more interesting for members. The next possible visit would be the Fisher and Paykel Design Centre.


The Foundation evening is 15 November, 6 for 6:30pm with the theme being Magic.
John Usher will be the MC.
Members are encouraged to nominate and bring something to be auctioned.
There are already some very generous items including a weekend crib.
The levy for Rotary International is $120 per person which is what the evening is there to raise funds for. The capacity of the Dunedin Club is 80 and the tickets are $35 each. This includes bubbles on arrival, the meal, red and white wines on the tables.
Please email Bob, Andrew or David McLeod with proposed items or any questions surrounding the Auction night.
Dunedin East and NRG are being informed and invited to the event.
The Foundation team will find out when the commitment of numbers needs to be in to the Dunedin Club.


Plan is to sell ALL of the books at the book sale!
The team came up with the idea of giving out promotional Rotary book markers to customers at the store.
Members at the shop will be wearing Purple for Polio on the mufti day 28 October.
Remember: It’s your responsibility to arrange a substitute if unable to fulfil your duty.
