Are you feeling the way Liz’s dog looks? Without our normal routines and activities it’s easy to slip into apathy and time wasting. The weather is in tune with the general feeling around the place – gloomy, cold and miserable. As far as Rotary is concerned it is vital that we keep active, involved and optimistic. Things may never go back to exactly what they were before and as Covid19 progresses we are all becoming aware of changes in society and the community around us. Planning is one way we can move forward and be thinking about how our club may meet the needs of the community in the coming years.
There are a number of really important District webinars and seminars/forums coming up – Community, Vocational, Social Media and Club Runner so I would like to see as many of you as possible join these and give feedback to the club. You will see the dates further down in this bulletin and emails will be sent out with registration details. Emails and phone calls have never been so important in our communications so please, check your emails regularly.
Last meeting, we welcomed District Governor Elect Daryl Moran who is working hard to get to all the club meetings in the district. Daryl congratulated us on our efforts to stay connected and keep our club functioning via zoom meetings. He said that some Rotary clubs (not in our district) are doing nothing and “riding it out”, which is hazardous to membership with lack of interaction between members causing disinterest. It was great to have Daryl even for a short time and be reassured that we are on the right track, even though it is difficult.
