Greetings once again to all members in home detention. 
Anyone wearing ankle bracelets yet?  smiley
                               I'm going out.  Need Anything?

What's App?

If you have not already done so, may we encourage you to download and install the "What's App?" app?  Get it on your smartphone from either the App Store or Google Play.
Search for the group Rotary Club of Stirling and join with other members.  As this is a "closed" group and everyone in our group is identified and validated,  discussions are safe and secure. Posts are visible to all in the group, but you can choose to send private messages to one or more group members if you wish.
According to press reports, the PM and the COVID-19 national crisis team is using What's App? to keep all group members informed and to provide a platform for input in the form of suggestions, research results and discussion.  A perfect solution for us as a club as well...and for the same reasons, albeit not at the same critical level!
Use it to tell everyone how you are getting on and how you are entertaining yourselves at home.  This would be  perfect place, for instance, to share your reading list or what movies or TV series you are binging on.
Pauline set up this excellent means to stay in touch and to support each other. Do yourself and the club a favour and join now!

Board Meeting

The Board met online briefly on Monday evening using Zoom, to trail the software and to discuss club operations going forward.

Social Distancing in Practice

According to the channel 9 website, responsible, woke companies
are practicing social distancing...


Both the Courier and the Weekender Herald continue to actively support the club.  Both published pretty much, verbatim, our media release about the postponement of the Sculpture Exhibition until November.

Raffle Tickets

As a result of constructive and sensitive feedback from several members, we will postpone the raffle until towards the end of the year; closer to the dates of the Sculpture Exhibition.
If you already have tickets feel free to continue to sell but no more tickets will be issued for a while. Thank you to all who got a jump start on this with personal contacts (almost 200 tickets have been sold) but we will hold off actively promoting the raffle until things settle down.

...and Avoid Sneezing

(No need to sign in..just close the pop up box)

SAPOL on Home Security

Police has written to community groups to suggest that now is a good time to conduct a safety and security audit of your home.
The letter and and accompanying Checklist are attached to this Newsletter.

In the Year 1AC (After COVID)

...and on that note, stay safe and well!

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 be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

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