Picnic bays along Kaka Point and Nugget Point require picnic tables to be cemented in, details to be approved by Otago Regional Council.

Clutha Picture Frame
Lynda updated on the Directors' decision to install a big steel frame near Balclutha Bridge. It will be yellow with Rotary and the geographic co-ordinates on the frame so people can stop in our town to take a photo in the frame.

Speaker of the Evening
 
David and Gabrielle co-ordinated a showing of the YouTube video of Simon Sinek on Millennials in the Workplace which has had millions of views. Simon provides insight into the management of employees of the Millennial Generation by describing the effects of the different parenting, technology, impatience and environment have had on this generation. He explains how much social media and technology inhibit innovation and how lack of good leadership is shaping the world. It is a reminder of the responsibility of leaders to contribute to making up this shortfall to empower people to find better balance between life and technology and develop better social skills.
