Club Night Summary 27th September 2017

Last Tuesday's club meeting was somewhat a small affair but didn't stop the buzz of new ideas and president Derek King highlighting the need for these monthly club nights to continue so that everyone can be involved in the planning and co-ordination of community projects.


Membership and PR committees combined for this meeting with membership suggesting future links with PR would be helpful. Actually all committees should be inked with PR as this is how we'll get the voice of Rotary out there. This was brought up before by Vicki with the introduction of the 'Project Forms' which can be used to get all information to the PR committee.
Membership are looking to get some pull up banners made up to have at Rotary events.
Possibility of having a Dunedin Central flag also.
29 October is the membership seminar at Logan Park.
Possibilities for more functions and parties outside of the usual meetings so new members can get to know everyone and use new networks to increase membership.
Suggestion of all new members bringing 2 new people along with them.
Maybe recruit some NRG members into the club?
Maybe recruit some refugees into the club? We have a link already with the dictionary project.
More site visit's like the Gasworks.
A new member incentive – anybody who brings a new member gets a bottle of wine!


Brick Show 1&2 October, now finished.
Book Sale. David Humphrey has arranged help for the books to be sorted and priced for the sale.
7 October there is a Blind Foundation collection.
End Polio now – Purple for Polio mufti day 28th October.


15th November is the foundation evening with the entertainment being John Usher the magician.
Looking for each member to bring 3-4 guests to increase numbers for the event.
Looking for items for the auction, we are a diverse group so could accumulate some special and interesting items to be auctioned. if you have any ideas come forward with them.
Remember: It’s your responsibility to arrange a substitute if unable to fulfil your duty.
