RCCL Newsletter Editor’s note
It would be great if all Rotarians could share the love of
sending in pics for the newsletter this year (please include
names, titles and where and when it was taken and send
by 5pm each Thursday). Thanks to those who already do
take pictures, it’s greatly appreciated. If you are
Corporal, please write a summary of the guest speaker’s
talk. If you can’t do Corporal please find a replacement
and advise Craig Perkins and myself so we can change it
in the rosters and newsletter. The deadline for the
newsletter is always 5pm Thursday. Thank you.
Jokes you will see on Rotarian Craig

The testimony at the barbershop is mostly hair-say.
I searched for designer compression stockings. My wife says it is
because I’m so vein
The thing about vampires is they always have such biting humour.
His daughter grew flowers because her poppy liked to see them
every daisy.
I take pictures of trees and plants while the sun is out. It really
emphasizes photosynthesis

Report from President Wendy Summers
Happy New Year!
Welcome to our first meeting for 2015. I hope that you all had
a wonderful Christmas and found some time to relax and
enjoy the company of family and friends during the break.
After a very busy year, I loved being able to switch off and
recharge the batteries! I particularly enjoyed pottering around
at home and catching up on a few of those domestic tasks
that were long overdue, as well as making a couple of day
trips around the state.
Many of you have enjoyed far more adventurous travels over
the break, including Treasurer Richard who has sent regular
emails from Europe, keeping his finger on the treasury pulse
from afar!
Last Monday’s BBQ at the Launceston Golf Club was well
attended on a beautiful summer’s evening. Thanks to
everyone who came along to start the year off in a relaxed,
informal manner.
I received my Working with Vulnerable People card in the mail
last week, less than four weeks since making payment at
Service Tasmania. With that kind of turnaround, there is still
plenty of time for you to apply online, go into Service Tasmania
to pay, and then receive your card before Rotary’s birthday
on 23 February. Provided you have submitted a copy of the
card, and your receipt for reimbursement (if required), by that
date you will go in the draw for some quality Tasmania wines.
Don’t forget the presentation at the Door of Hope on 2nd
February by Resilient Youth Australia. As the recipient of our
Sally’s Ride funding it would be wonderful to have strong
representation from our Club to show our support.
Did you make a new year’s resolution? If so, I hope you are
actively working on achieving the goals you set out to
At the beginning of our Rotary year, our resolution was to
Light up Rotary. We are doing that through our regular
activities, but there are still many ways in which we can
expand that opportunity. This includes identifying new
members who we believe would add value to our club and
who personally would benefit from being involved in Rotary.
If there is someone that you think would make a great
Rotarian, please ask them along to a meeting or let our
Membership Director Andrew Richman know. We would love
to meet them!
Have a great week.
