On Wednesday 28 October at 6pm there will be a Helen Reddy Movie fundraiser, “I Am Woman”, at Hoyts Riccarton for $20.00 per ticket per person.   
Helen landed in New York with her three year old daughter, a suitcase and $230 in her pocket. Within a few weeks she was broke. Within months she was in love. Within five years she was one of the biggest superstars of her time, and an icon of the 1970's feminist movement. 
She wrote the song I am Woman which galvanised a generation of women to fight for change.
As with previous screenings for “End Polio Now”, all Clubs who sell tickets will receive a share of the profits and these will be credited to their respective clubs as a donation to End Polio Now.
 Christchurch Clubs have been very supportive of the five previous movies that have been held for End Polio Now, and we hope that we will receive this support once again.
Tickets will be available in the week commencing 19th October.
Halloween Reminder
A reminder to all members that Liz is looking for volunteers to help make this evening on October the 30th a great success.

The President’s Blurb
Sadly I had to leave Rotary early last week because of a recurring migraine.  Thanks to President-elect Grant for stepping up again. 
I met with Gary Denhard earlier in the week to interview a candidate for the RYLA course to be held in the third week of January 2021. An excellent candidate whose name will be revealed after the board meeting.
We have received further names for this course but given the cost (approx. $1000 per person) we are looking to see if there are Clubs willing to sponsor but with no candidates. 
October 24 is World Polio Day. The International/Foundation committee will take the speaker slot at our meeting on 22 October and this will be dedicated to updating you all on the where Rotary and its partner organisations are in the eradication of polio.
Please support Stuart and his team as they put something together for this night.
On 28 October there is a district wide movie night designed to raise funds for polio. There's an opportunity to do something socially with fellow Rotarians and at the same time raise funds for polio. 
The week commencing 26 October will be a very active one for Papanui Rotary with the District shooting tournament on Tuesday 27th, the polio movie night on Wed 28th, a visit to the Chch Rotary Breastmilk Bank in place of the normal Rotary meeting at the Club on 29th, the Ray White/Rotary Halloween event at St James Park 30th and on the 31st the Halloween event at Hanmer Springs Forest Camp.
Lots of opportunities for everybody to roll up their sleeves and help out.  I look forward to seeing you all this Thursday night.
