The Rotary Board met on Wednesday night via Zoom. Reports had been forwarded to all board members prior to the meeting to reduce time in the
meeting.
General Items of interest that were covered were –
 All Rotary events – Fundraising, BBQ’s, Youth, Vocational, Community Service have been Cancelled or Postponed due to COVID19
 At this stage RYLA 2020 has been postponed until August
 Work has been going on in relation to assisting Bobin School with their Fire Recovery, the BBQ has been purchased, Picnic Tables painted, and
bookcases are being built. However much of the work will require further assistance from other members so for now it was decided that no further
action could be taken until after the Crisis.
 We discussed the issue of if or how we did Rotary meeting during our time of isolation and it was decided that we would look at trying Zoom to see
if that would be a viable way to move forward during this time.
 Our exchange student, Anika Stanic is still in Taiwan and taking precautions with the family she is staying with.
 We are currently looking at the viability of Long-Term Student Exchange at Our Club as we need to be able to host an incoming exchange student.
We will be looking for any members who might be interested in assisting with
this.
 
 We received a letter from Given, the student we support at the School of St Jude and we have replied.
 The LITTLE BLUE SHED Rotary Global Grant is still being finalized.
 Membership is rising with membership numbers now over 40 and a few more people to come
 The IRON LUNG has arrived in Taree and is being displayed in a vacant shop in the Centrepoint Arcade.
 New Club Tablecloths are almost ready to go.
