Southland Charity Hospital
 
Rotary Club of Fiordland are supporting Blair Vining’s dream of creating the Southland Charity Hospital.
Blair Vining reckoned if everybody in the south bought a brick, together we could build a hospital. So, we’re going to do just that.
The hospital has created supporter’s bricks, which will pave the pathway into the Southland Charity Hospital once built. Available for members of the public to purchase, the supporter’s bricks will be engraved to serve as a lasting testament to the community that has supported this important cause.
For a donation of $100, each brick can be engraved with up to two lines of 16 characters each.
Help us make Blair’s vision a reality.
A list was passed round at our last meeting and was exceptionally well received.
Another list will be passed round at the next Rotary meeting.
Thanks everybody.

Tony Laker - Guest Speaker

This will be an outstanding talk and one not to be missed. Tony has spoken for years around New Zealand at conferences and various other events.

His topic is "How the Hell did that happen" and the story of how his travel agency (pre covid awarded the top travel agency in New Zealand) is reinventing itself since COVID-19.

Tony is on the speaker circuit with Celebrity Speakers, that's how good he is!

So bring along or partner or friend, this will be a good one.

We are all getting better at remembering to submit our apologies, however please remember if you fail to submit your apology you will be charged for the meal.
Also please give your apologies to Merv the Bulletin Editor prior to the next bulletin being published otherwise with the best of intentions, you may be delegated a  "Duty".
PLEASE remember, if you have been allocated a "Duty" it is YOUR responsibility to find a substitute, then notify Craig as to who is doing your duty for you. Hopefully this will alleviate a lot of unnecessary confusion.

Speakers
It would be great if club members could think of someone that could come and speak at our meeting. Is is easier if everyone can suggest one person each than one person to come up with them all.
If you can help please contact myself or Mark Dowling. Thank you.
