Frustration continues as we move up and down the Covid Alert levels, with widespread disappointment at failure for a positive case to properly isolate in the Auckland community. Of course we all need to look carefully at our own activities to ensure that we are playing our part. At the last board meeting, board members carefully considered what actions we should take for our next meeting on 9 March. The probability is that we will be back at level 1 and will be able to meet as usual. In the unlikely event that we remain at level 2 we have decided that we will still go ahead but with strict social distancing. In addition special arrangements will be put in place for our meal, these have been discussed with Elaine. This is in line with other clubs and I hope the decision will meet with your approval.
At our next meeting we will welcome back a leading Karori community conservator, Barbara Mulligan, Vice Chair of the Friends of the Karori Cemetery. Karori cemetery is the second largest cemetery in New Zealand for interments. Barbara will talk to us about their further work in the cemetery and the development of a Trust for future conservation and preservation.
Once again let me draw you attention your attention to the upcoming District Conference and the Carterton Rotary Golf competition. Both events are featured in this bulletin.
The release of our centenary book Mana Tangata is imminent and there will be an opening round of centenary events in May.
Our meeting on 23 March will be a special general meeting to consider the election of a president elect. This is advance warning only, an agenda and meeting details will be advised shortly.
Best wishes to you all, Phil
