 President’s Ponderings
 
LAST MEETING
 
Last Monday we were excellently entertained by Greg who took us through the events and politics leading up to the use of the two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the subsequent Japanese surrender.  This was very well presented and I, for one, discovered a lot of facets that I was previously unaware of.   Thanks Greg.
 
COMING UP
 
Next week (3 Aug) we shall have our committee meetings so, thinking caps on and let’s try to make these meetings as fruitful as possible.
 
The following week (10 Aug) will be our customary dinner at Heathfield High School. Pauline has already got this well in hand and it promises, once again, to be a splendid evening where the students can show off their skills. (BYO).
 
COMMUNITY NEWS
 
We have received an invitation from Bec Frances for any green- fingered among us to attend a Pruning & Grafting Master Class for apples and pears. It will be held next week Tuesday and Thursday. If you would like to attend, please Google Pomefest 2020 for details.
 
ZONE 8 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
 
Dick reminded us that the Rotary International Conference will be aired on Saturday & Sunday 19 & 20 September.  He is inviting us to his house to view it so please give him an indication as to whether or not you will be taking him up on his offer. The idea is that, if the numbers are low, he and Liz could put together a lunch (with items brought by us). However, if numbers are high we could consider using the catering van or BBQ trailer. Thanks Dick.
 
Sorry about this pathetic joke!

The Four Way Test
Of all the things we think, say and do
 
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

 
Please support the Friends of Rotary the way they support us!
