Ideas Wanted for Out Nights
Summer is just around the corner (I'm just ignoring the snow falling as I write this article!) but we  need to start thinking of some outdoor events once the warmer weather arrives.
 
After the last couple of years of hardly any Out Nights, lets all put our thinking caps on and come up with an idea for somewhere to meet at least once a month over the coming summer.
 
Could be a quick meeting at the Club then off somewhere for an hour or two - or a meal out at a restaurant - or a BBQ (we have a couple of those around town!)
 
I have an event and a plan to involve Rotary - the weekend of 24-26 February 2023 - I am organising a Stag Owners Car Club event here in Te Anau.  It is a national event and some cars are coming all the way from Northland - we're hoping to have approx 30 Stags and around 60-70 people attending.  I have yet to finalise all the activities, but I know lots of the Owners are members or at least are supportive of Rotary so I'm hoping to organise something at the Boat Harbour BBQ and get our Club to organise the evening - including raising funds for our Club, of course.  More information to follow on this one!
 
If you have any ideas and would like to help out by organising an Out Night, please contact President Elect, Don McFarlane.
 
Thanks
Jane

Aug 2022 Treasurers Report
ROTARY ACCOUNTS UPDATE - As I commented at the meeting on Thurs 4 Aug - work is still underway transitioning our Rotary accounts but I hope to be able to send out Invoices to everyone very soon.  The invoices that will be sent very soon will be for Subs for the period July - Dec 2022 as well as for the cost of meals for those who were on the old PrePay system but from now on, you will just be invoiced for the meals you have attended for the previous month(s).  Because we pay for our meals to The Club monthly, I will need to Invoice everyone monthly.
 
INCOME FROM COPPER DONATED BY RUSSELL McLEAN (and organised by Mark Dowling) - We have just banked $1103.50 from the cooper extracted from the wire donated by Russell - thanks to all involved, especially to Russell for his generous donation of the material.
 
INCOME FROM DELIVERY OF SOUTHLAND YELLOW PHONE BOOK - Past President Mark has done a fantastic job organising the delivery of these books - we have just invoiced Yellow NZ Ltd for $3194 + GST and after a couple of related expenses, we hope to have $2800 net profit to add to our Trust account funds.  This is a great fund raiser and I have indicated we would be very keen to deliver again next time - Mark will definitely need more support if he is involved again, but hopefully after this year, he now has a better idea of the process.  Thank you Mark for your efforts - very much appreciated by all Members for the long hours you put into this.
 
TE ANAU COMMUNITY PHONE BOOK - Don has spent MEGA time and effort on next Local Te Anau Community Phone book - battling with so many unforeseen delays mostly involving the effects of COVID but is hoping to have a final copy for us to review in the next week or two.  PLEASE take time to check the Draft when its released, very important we get our facts correct and then we will need a concerted effort to get out there and sell these books once available for delivery.  
 
DONATION TO KIDS BOOKS - As you all know, we continue to support new babies and pre school children of our community by providing books.  We have just spent $1500 topping up our supply of books and with our growing community, it continues to be an important contribution to our town.
 
Thanks
Treasurer Jane

Chip Van Update
Following the call last month for a Chip Van Organiser, we are very grateful to confirm that Don has offered to look after the Van this summer.   But he will need your help!!  
 
There are lots of things to do to operate the Chip Van:
          *  Ordering supplies and meeting supplier to unload and store in freezers etc 
          *  Organise loading of drinks and supplies prior to event
          *  Checking Gas Bottles and getting more gas when required
          *  Cleaning the Van - sometimes needed before and after each event, depending on how far apart each event is
          *  Each event needs a Runner - someone extra who can just be around to top up supplies from Fresh Choice if required (we could be busy this year!!)
 
Sandra is going to organise the Rosters (thanks Sandra!) - the key to Rosters to getting your commitment to volunteer as early as possible so once Sandra confirms events, rosters will appear at meetings for you to fill in and notices will be put out via email looking for volunteers if you're not always at meetings.  Look out for the Roster - it will become part of our Meeting Notices in the next couple of months.  We will reduce the hours per shift this summer - helps spread the workload and makes the shift a little easier for everyone to do.
 
It looks like we might have quite a few events these summer, which will be great as we certainly haven't been able to use it much over the last couple of years, and it is a major source of our Trust income.
