Meeting
 
Jill is selling blue and gold silky neck ties $10 profits going to Rotary Foundation.
 
Tania after District Membership Seminar has many ideas on how to make Rotary more suitable for new members.

He wrote the book “Creatures of Habit” on service club membership decline and Tania has a copy to borrow.
 
Next week meals go up to $21, please try to have correct change for Barry.

Speakers of the Evening
 
The winners of the Year 9 & 10 Speech Competitions at South Otago High School gave their winning speeches. Shania Morado (Year 9) on poverty and Kareena Dunlop (Year 10) on self-acceptance. Both spoke confidently and concluded their speeches powerfully; Shania reminding us to be grateful as "someone out there dreams to taste a life like your's" and Kareena hoping we can accept ourselves for who we are and accept each other as "only one race - the human race".
Congratulations Shania and Kareena, it is obvious that a lot of work has gone into writing and practising these speeches! Their prizes will be awarded at SOHS prizegiving at the end of the year.
