A great vocational this week at Net 19. Thanks to cider-makers Chris and Caro Brown from Brady's Lookout Cider.
Club members enjoyed the chance to learn about cider and also about blending.
Susan Nolan and her super International Women's Day team also met on Thursday to talk about the upcoming event.
Caro Brown headed off to Rotaract to talk about our 5th and 15th Birthday celebrations.
This week it is casual breakfast in the cafe side (Titanium Bar) at Hotel Launceston as it is Launceston Cup Day. Bring along your fascinator for something different!
Committee members for International Women's Day will also be having a meeting Thursday morning at LAC. The Committee needs all members to circulate an invite to the event far and wide to make it a success! See Susan or Jane if you need the link.

Toni Wagner is also looking for volunteers to fill the Bunnings roster on 22nd March - hope you have some time frame and can help out.

Last week at the club we enjoyed the company of Mary from Festivale who provided an overview of what our club was required to support as part of the Information Booth at Festivale.
Congratulations to David and Lou and all the Committee of Festivale. Although the weather was not that grand, the event was as well run and enjoyable as ever. A great contribution to the local social fabric of Launceston and a fantastic attraction to the City.
Thank you to all members and friends who volunteered at Festivale over the weekend. This is one of our signature support events and everyone enjoys the experience. Your smiley faces just add to the atmosphere!
Thanks Clark for the one minute overview of "O" Week at Uni - wish I was back there.

Festivale Roster 13-15 February 2015
Festivale is almost upon us. Toni has been working on our Roster and doing a marvellous job. There are a few places still to fill:
1 person Sunday morning 10am to 12 noon
2 people Sunday afternoon 2pm to 4pm.
If you have some time spare, can you let Toni know asap if you can assist.
As mentioned last year, members of Rotary intending or required to work as volunteers with children need to apply for a new type of registration (incorporating police checks) required by Government - this includes our Youth Exchange program.
Working on our Governance areas, we need to consider this registration by the end of April 2015 for our members who will be involved in these programs for next year.
A run sheet will be circulated this week and next week to indicate who already has these as part of their work requirements and who else we will need to consider connecting into the registration process.
In the meantime, if anybody has any questions, please see Caro as she has the District Committee information on what is required.
At our casual breakfast last week, members expressed an interest in a group booking in attending Evita on Friday 13 March 2015 at 8pm with a dinner before hand. Tickets are $52pp
Please indicate to Caro on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend. We can then approach Encore for a group booking arrangement.
