Hi Everyone,

I think it is still summer - at least that is what my calendar says! Certainly didn't feel like it at my daughter's cricket match on Friday evening. 

We have a club forum this week. It will be good to see people, go through what we have and get any ideas that are out there for making things run better. Incognito Art show, Hay and Majura Schools Poles, bells and the environment are all on the agenda for discussion.

The board meeting is on Wednesday evening and the District AGM is coming up on Sunday afternoon. Bookings for the District conference in Temora are still open. Temora is a nice place to visit, not too far away for a weekend trip too.  Let me know if you are considering attending.

The Canberra Sundowners club, our district's newest club is having their Charter night on the 25th of Feb. Rotary Youth Exchange is also beginning activities again. Good to see some things starting to return.

Just over a week to go before the Fred Smith concert, Feb 17. Should be a great night, I hope to see you there.
