Terry Taniwha  
Our guest speaker gave a very sobering talk on the problems that “P” is causing, not only to those using & their families but the contamination caused in buildings were it is made & used, resulting in a financial cost to those in the property market.

AG Mike
The District Conference was very successful with very high quality speakers. The DG has has put together a video of clubs projects and wants all clubs to submit videos of their club projects.
AG Mike would like to see all incoming office holders attend LETS pointing out that the Foundation meeting must be attended to get Foundation Grants in future.  He thanked President Trish for being prompt with all reports & praised Drury as being one of the more active clubs in the District.
