We had a Board meeting on 3 Dec in which we welcomed back  Past President (PP) Pam Wood. Even though she had a hectic schedule, she kindly offered to draft proposes Corporate Membership to be included in the review of our BYLAWS .Suggested changes to our BYLAWS in the minutes of our Board meeting of 27 September stand.
Members will be notified of all proposed changes and the date of voting on them
President Elect Mandy Van read correspondence and spoke about wearing clothes bearing Rotary logo at the Christmas Carols.
PP David Martin spoke about the final arrangements for our Christmas party on 6 Dec and  Cox's Rd BBQ and Book Sale on 21 Dec
Garry Maloney spoke about the Carols on the Common and brought thousands of flyers for distribution. Other means of advertising have been finalised.
 Our busy treasurer,  Sandeep Rathi spoke about our finance, district conference registration and payment for our French exchange student Palmyre and the trailer registration . He emailed us earlier the  Audited Financial Report for the Year Ended 30/6/2019.
On 6 Dec we'll have our Annual General Meeting  (AGM) in  the morning and our Christmas Party at 6 pm at Riding for The Disabled (RDA), 118 Culledon Rd, Marsfield.

Our club members are looking forward to welcoming our friends and guests.

Carols on the Common Sunday 15 December 2019
Volunteers Needed - Carols on The Common Sunday 15 December
We are in need of volunteers to help with the Carols on the Common on Sunday 15 December.   
Volunteers are required for:
Set up from 10.30a.m.
Pull down at the end of the evening
Bucket Collection 
Parking from 4pm
Waste Facilitation throughout the evening.
Final Clean up on Monday morning 16 December.
This year we still  have an issue of waste management which we need to focus on. Ryde Council no longer supply a service to clean up the ground so we need to do all we can to keep the place clean.  We are, once again, hoping that we can achieve this by communicating with patrons and better management of the waste facilities on the day. But we will need volunteers to regularly empty the bins, replace garbage bags in the bins and help move the bins up to the roadside for collection at the end of the event.
The bucket collection and car parking fee will be  raising money for Bush Fire Relief'. The RFS will be attending and helping with the bucket collection as well!
If you have already volunteered, your help is very much appreciated !
If you and or friends and family can assist, please contact Garry Maloney on mobile 0426 230 458 or email
