9 September – Golf tournament for Foodshare
The Rotaract Quiz on the 29 August was a great success with the team made up of Dunedin Central members coming in 3rd place! (apologies for this being advertised last week for the 15 Sept, bad note taking by Bulletin editor!)
The End Polio rosters will be up soon so keep an eye out and see when you can help out.
The district grants have been granted and even though we missed out on $1500 for apples in schools, we got:
$1000 for Foster Hope
$500 for Survival Blankets
$1425 for Dictionaries
$1800 for Cuddle Cot
Welcome Brigetta!
Brigetta Anselmi was inducted to the club last week, fantastic to have another new member! It was also lovely to meet Brigetta's son William who came as a guest.
Disability Information Service
Last Tuesday's guest speaker was Debbie Webster from the Disability Information Service.
The Disability Information Service is based in Community House, Dunedin. The service is for connecting people to information about many aspects around disability and services including:
Awareness training.
NZ standards for access, mobility, health and disability.
Government policies, entitlements and consumer rights.
Organisations who help with disabilities.
Support networks – community and natural supports.
Equipment, including daily aids and continence products.
You can find out about the service at their website here, and there is information at Weka.
There are information stands at both Wakari and Dunedin hospitals where you can pick up several booklets for information including a Queenstown accessible map which gives information on accessibility and activities around Queenstown.
The Disability Information Service also give advice on building standards and can refer companies to barrier free assessments. 
Among the users of the service are disabled people, older people, families, carers, community organisations, students and educators, government departments, local authorities, architects, builders, employers and health authorities.
Going forward Debbie would like to introduce a mobile service similar to that of Aspire Canterbury which could more easily service the region.

Remember: It’s your responsibility to arrange a substitute if unable to fulfil your duty.

Dunedin Central profile photographs!

Over the next few weeks Murray Eskdale will be taking head shots of all Dunedin Central members for their Clubrunner online profiles. This will take place between 5:30 and 6pm at meetings until we have everyone's photo.
