Our next Assembly on the 13th is to help President Julia and the new chairs present ideas and establish committees.  It is also an opportunity for gathering information, preparation for the year ahead and for club members to voice opinions, address issues and anything else that can be planned, organised or laid to rest.

Have you booked in for the Changeover Dinner Meeting 20th July?
Changes to Meetings
For the past year, Fran's board meetings were held on the 3rd Monday, now changed to 1st Monday.  The change has been made so that the International Club caterers cook on the 2nd and 4th Monday for Us as well as the Lions.
On the other Mondays, 3rd and 5th, we can self cater, dine out, or Zoom.
More discussion on this idea at the Assembly.
We farewell David and Marlene Muir
It is with great sadness that we accepted the resignation of David Muir at the last meeting. We will however see both David and Marlene as they wish to be included in our activities.  David is a past president of the club and has been a member of this club since May 1993.
Quote from Fran

    What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.  TS Eliot  

  Toast of the Week 
Last meeting, Kim lead the toast to Ann Richardson, for all the work she has done for this Club and on the Committees she leads and participates in.  Ann is moving towns, but remains a member of this Club. 
Exercise for People Over 50

1. Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

2. With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

3. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags. Then try 50-lb potato bags, and then
 eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)
4. After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
