Last Monday the Club held its second online Club meeting using the Zoom app. There were more than 30 members who joined the meeting - a fantastic effort.
 
The night held special significance as it was the celebration of the Club's 33rd anniversary of its being chartered in 1987. Helen Hartnett gave a us a short history of the Club's beginnings, developments and achievements over the years. We also had a short video in part using footage from the event at Box Hill Golf Club where the Club held its 30th anniversary celebrations.
 
We had an online quiz session where Cathie Macmillan asked very challenging questions focusing on potatoes, bees and the Philippines. Tony Laycock took out the prize with an unbelievable score of 7 correct answers.
 
Other matters of interest included:
 
  • Peter Stewart, a dentist in Kew, member of the Kew Rotary Club  and friend of Kyle Wightman, has very generously donated dental equipment which the Club will arrange to be shipped to the Philippines  - thank you Peter
  • Plans are progressing for the Club to hold its waggle dance on World bee day on 20 May. This will now be an online event and our Club will link up with events held around the world to celebrate bee day
  • The Club hopes to continue to hold weekly online Club meetings. Members with any ideas about topics and meeting agenda should email these through to John Braine at john.braine@canterburyrotary.org
