Proceedings of the meeting on:


Invocation:  Sam







  • Club Members Christopher L. and Guillermo S. led the Club today in an exploration of social media and its’ uses. Christopher led the meeting through the various applications and websites that can be used to spread information and increase awareness about our Club and the projects we are doing. Christopher and Guillermo showed us how the various social media sites can be used to reach out to  a target audience through ever widening circles by linking people and organisations to each other through the connections made by the different sites and services. Using sites such as Face Book, Twitter , Hoot Suite and Instagram messages and information can be distributed and shared by an exponentially increasing number of people. Guillermo and Christopher demonstrated how use of these various services can spread our message and increase our effectiveness when doing projects such as the Rotary Ride.


Club Business:

  • Rotary Moment: Club member Jim W. told us about   Rotary fundraisers in Arizona to benefit the PolioPlus campaign. Bicycle racing (sound familiar?) has taken Arizona by storm with Rotary fundraisers being held in both Phoenix and Tucson, the roadracing events have raised millions of dollars to benefit the Polio campaign.
  • Here at home Rotary Ride organiser Karen H. reminded the Club that our marketing campaign is busy raising awareness with volunteers handing out promotional material on popular cycling routes and various cycle shops around our community. Volunteers will be needed for the campaign through May so please advise Karen when you can help out.

50/50/happy/sad: when you’re happy: give a little, 

  • when you’re sad: give a little, it will always make you feel better…..if you’re desperate gamble, it may make you feel better.
