Club News
These are demandingly unprecedented days!   Following on from our meeting and conversations yesterday as regards our fortnightly on-site breakfast meetings at Boulcott, your Board has today recognised and made the decision that with the COVID-19 virus and the wider responses being taken across the community, there is now need for us to act and formally postpone our scheduled Club breakfast meetings from today going forward.
 
Such a step is consistent with the Rotary advice now issued at district and national levels, that it is for the leadership within each club to consider and decide what is needed, and to act promptly.
The Tree of Joy has been a Rotary Hutt City project for a number of years and is a great way of involving the community who donate gifts that are distributed to local charities who in turn pass out the gifts to children aged 1-17 years from less fortunate families.
 
Our partner is the Salvation Army, who uplift the donated presents, sort them into age and gender categories and then pack them to each charity's requirements. The charities provide numbers of gifts they need to distribute to their families.
 
This year we ran the 'Tree' for 11 days prior to Christmas, finishing at 6.00 pm on Christmas Eve.  With 5-7 two-hour slots per day to ensure the Tree was manned at all times during Queensgate's opening hours it could have been a big ask to get volunteers, however the club members and friends readily signed up and we had the roster complete in no time.  
 
Club members enjoy the project and find it heart-warming hearing the stories of those who donate.  Some donate remembering their own tough childhoods, others donate to teach their children that not everyone is as fortunate as them, some collect presents throughout the year and bring them at one time.  The reasons are endless.
