Older Adults  Needs
Exploring the Needs of Older Adults in the Papanui-Innes Community Board Area
Gary Denhard
 
 
As Youth Director Gary was looking to find out what is happening in our community. While doing some research he came across this earlier document that has some interesting findings for our “older” youth.
 
Gary is also collecting stories of Youth Activities around the district and several clubs are involved in Boyle River. It was created by the Belfast, Kaiapoi and Rangiora Rotary Clubs 40 years ago.
 
He feels it is worth checking it out here if you would like to find out more about it and some great programs we could consider participating in.

The President’s Blurb
 
Welcome to my “blurb” that I will be placing on Club Chat from time to time.
 
It was great to see so many members participate in Committee nights held either at Chair’s homes or at other times depending on availability.  There were lots of ideas and events from and subsequently the Club Calendar for the first 6 months is filling up fast.
 
Membership inducted 2 new members at change-over and are working with several more to try and get the Club to 50 members as well as look at alternative meeting formats to bring on different types of groups.
 
Ronald McDonald house is underway and the Hanmer Forest Camp has asked for assistance with their Halloween night Sat 31 Oct. Liz will be talking to Ray White as to what is planned this year.
 
Several Rotary clubs have indicated an interest in joining with us when there is speaker of interest available and others are keen to host us on a Club visit plus join us and take the successful Rotary Can Project to their neighbourhoods.
This week Nick is presenting the results of the goal setting exercise undertaken in June. 
 
Next week we will be holding “Guess Who Is Coming to Dinner”, a partners event.  Please support Barbara & the Fellowship crew as they put details together.  The cost is $25 per head and BYO.  Proceeds go to Club funds that help us deal with requests for assistance.
 
Cheers: Janice
