The President’s Blurb
The night at The Morrison Ave Bowling Club was very well attended and a great success. Thank you to the bowling club for hosting us and putting on a very good meal. Thank you to all the members and partners that came along. 
The trailer raffle came to end in the weekend and the indications are looking good. Thanks to Deryn for all the effort she has put into this and also to the assistants that helped her. Our thanks also go to the ticket sellers both inside the mall and elsewhere.
This week Arie and I are taking the week off and are heading away to Hanmer Springs for some pre-Christmas R&R. I will be back on Saturday briefly to attend the Ladies Christmas Breakfast (thank you Lois) but won't be back to normal Rotary duties until Tuesday 8 December. My thanks to Grant for being prepared to take this week's club meeting.
