August Rotary Bulletin
Well we are a month into the new Rotary year already and as seems typical for this club we are doing stuff. We have helped sponsor a young lady to Outward Bound later in the year, we have made a small contribution to Dunedin South Rotary to help them with a project in Sierra Leone. We hope this support will continue to build the relationship with Dunedin South Rotary. Last week we visited Metro Glass and got an excellent look around hosted by Grant. And recently we had a full team helping at the Street Smart driving day at the Highlands. Now I know there are a lot of other things going on but this is a small taste for members to know we are busy!!
Paula has picked up the job of ensuring we have the apologies system working to ensure we are being fair to the Town and Country people in preparing the correct number of meals. At our first meeting we had 12 no shows which is simply not fair but there were a number of reasons. The meeting had not got onto our calendar, I probably counted some members that should have been on the leave of absence list but there were a number who did not apologise for not showing up. Please help us get better in this space after all part of our 4 way test is “is it fair to all concerned”  
We are also planning to apply for a District Grant to purchase trees to plant at Rotary Point as DG Nick intends to have a working bee there at the time of the conference next April. We also need to find a volunteer to be our RYLA champion and manage our application process for 2022. RYLA is scheduled to be held Feb 6-11 next year in Queenstown. This is a wonderful opportunity for young people to grow and develop so please get thinking about suitable candidates and if there is someone who would like to run this process please contact me.
Finally we have 2 new members to welcome in slightly different circumstances. Pete and Sue Svennson are Rotarians in Geraldton West Australia. They are well known to Adrienne and me and have owned a property in Printers Bay for a number of years. Pete worked for Wrightsons here a long number of years ago. They have decided, Covid permitting, it is time to come home so have transferred their membership to Cromwell Rotary. So depending on lockdowns and bubbles we hope to see them here by the start of October. In the meantime they are getting our bulletin and attending Rotary in Geraldton as visitors. Welcome from afar Pete and Sue.
Please watch the events up date in this bulletin and do your best to get along to whatever you can. In the meantime please stay safe…be positive and test negative.

Janeen Wood, Executive Trustee at Central Otago Queenstown Trail Network Trust
Janeen spoke to Cromwell Rotary on Monday night about the Central Otago Queenstown Trail Network Trust. The awesome trail from Smiths Way to Clyde is the first stage of the trail network which will also link Cromwell to Queenstown & Wanaka. 
Following her presentation we were delighted to present Janeen with a PHF award.
Janeen has served the community in many ways but our first common involvement was the Highlands Motorsport Park race days when we helped at the gates and Janeen was a volunteer coordinator.
Serving on the Cromwell and Districts Promotion Group, in 2016 Janeen put aside her reluctance to be in the public eye  and stepped up as Chairperson, in a bid to continue the momentum that the group had achieved.
Janeen had also served on the Cromwell & Districts Community Trust, who are the guardians of the community plan. She helped create Connect Cromwell which is an independent and neutral sub-committee to work out how to provide the Trust with better information about the community’s needs and opinions.
We also know Janeen from her long involvement with coordinating the annual lakeside clean up.
Janeen would prefer not to be in the limelight but accepted this award as acknowledgment and thanks for all the work done by herself, and those she works with, to make our community a better place.
