President's Message

Last week we green-lighted some ideas on how we can celebrate our Club’s anniversary this year and I sent an email to the members requesting suggestions. I’ve received a couple of responses, so I encourage the members to come up with some fun ideas.

 President Howard


Last Week:
Brian Hart (Kate's Rest) 

President Howard opened the meeting by welcoming guests and a prospective new member (Linda).
Barry introduced Brian Hart & Ryan Breault of Kate’s Rest. Then Brian made his presentation about his endeavour on Big Island to provide support to homeless persons which currently helps provide homes for nineteen individuals. Kate’s Rest has recently established a Foundation which will help to provide funding and builds on Brian’s fourteen year dedication to the most vulnerable in our society. A range of strategies has been, and is being, used to sustain this work including aquaponics (for carbon sequestration and food production) but a number of challenges (Covid, regulatory issues) have made it harder to assure the future of the project. Charity status is also being sought.
Brian & Ryan fielded a large number of questions from members and were thanked by Bill.
Bill’s bottle needs for the up-coming week were met.
‘Hello, Bonjour’ will be presenting next week and providing sustinence for $5.00 a head. Members must forewarn Dave if they wish to participate.
Pres. Howard reminded the Club that Board positions for next year and beyond are open for nominations until the end of the month. Especially vital is the filling of the position of President Elect. He also referred to the new procedure for choosing Rotarian of the Year steered by John I and promised a future presentation on the Rotary Foundation.
Lana shared that the Club had supported 36 Angels and that gifts being bought separately must be brought to her by Dec 2nd.
David Smith, chair of international projects, up-dated on the progress of the Wagiri Sanitation & Health. With participation from other clubs and matching grants, the first stage costing $100,000 was complete and the second phase for a similar cost is starting.
There are Rotary Learning Institute sessions available on all things Rotary via Zoom on Nov 4, 11 & 18.
Ideas were solicited regarding Club social events to replace those impacted by Covid 19 such as the Anniversary and Christmas ‘party’.
Finally, Buck Buchanan of the Legion spoke about the arrangements for Remembrance Day this year. No parade but possibility for private wreath-laying the evening before. Also, he referred to the Legion’s community dinners including the one at Christmas which is to go ahead on a take-out basis. The Poppy Fund is also proceeding as usual but with social-distancing. The Legion is selling Covid masks, too.
The meeting closed at 8.28 with the four way test.

Rotary Song Lyrics:
R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary.
R-O-T-A-R-Y, is known on land and sea.
From north to south, and east to west,
They profit most who serve the best,
R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary.
