President Elect Vacancy
As reported by Don, we have so far been unable to secure a President Elect for the coming year.
We have asked many members, and we do have a few lined up for the future, but we don't have PE this year or President for the Year 2024/25.
Members are asked to seriously consider their availability to support our Club - this will ultimately put more pressure on Don for the coming year if we don't find someone, and going into 2024/25 without a President will be extremely challenging.
We also require 3 Segeants. PLEASE HELP US OUT.
Please contact Don if anyone is able to help out and put their hand up to support the Club in the next couple of years.
Treasurers Report
At Changeover on 16 June, the Placemat detailed our income and expenditure from the Trust for the year.   A very pleasing result as this year included the Community Phone Book project as well as the Comedy Night at Davaar - 2 very lucrative income streams.   On top of these figures, we have also just paid for 2 x kids to attend Camp Quality at $1700 per child (Camp Quality is for children suffering from Cancer).
The Attendance Plate was not presented on Thursday but will be presented once we have completed the full Rotary year which will finish on 29 June.  The plate will then be presented in July once the appropriate engraving has been added.
As at 18 June our Club finances are looking very healthy so we will be working to distribute a good portion of this money to local causes in the coming months.
Trust Account = $37,318
Club Account = $7,830
Term Deposits = $42,544
Plus we have just over $17,000 still to collect from Phone Book advertisers.
The Comedy Night profit of $ $29,378.67 has been received from Davaar and now paid onto the Fiordland Trails Trust.  A great achievement in the name of Rotary!
Thats all for this month.
