On Sunday 29th November we fulfilled a special request. MightyMax had an outing to Jesmond with Max the Rotary Wonder Dog and his bestie Bella as quality control to clean a very big very red wall of tags. Boy!! Red is a lovely colour but it took four coats to clear any signs of the black tags underneath.
Apologies to all the other nice folk who appeared in Tim Crakanthorp's Community newsletter but we photo-shopped out OUR picture at the launch of MightyMax for a non-selfie boast.
Our end of year and Christmas celebration at Damien's place is coming up very soon.
We have put in an application for a Foundation grant to partner with RC Downtown LA to put tanks, toilets and hand-washing basins in schools in the Migori area in western Kenya with RC of Suni Migori. This will be part of Stage 3 of a Global Grant series.
Annual meeting happening on Tuesday December 1st - competition for places on the Board is a healthy sign. Strategic Planning as a result of our Visioning will give us clear direction for the next couple of years - the coming calendar and Rotary years are looking like good places to be.
Karina was a GSE team member to Germany and has been an enthusiastic participant in Club activities since she returned in August. As a new member she will have $500 at her disposal as seed money for a project of her choice. It is a delight to have her fresh face, new ideas and energy in the mix.
