The Bulletin of the Rotary Club of Patong Beach – Phuket Thailand

What’s on Meeting – 9th February

1. Ineffective Communications by the Board 2. Conflict of Interest 3 .Challenges of unfair Ad Hoc Committees.

Dr. Joseph Cerosimo Chiropractor from Phuket International Hospital will give his presentation.

All members present were accorded the opportunity to put their thoughts before the assembly and good discussion occurred.

The Editor regrets, due to follow up problems while down-under a BIO of Dr Joseph was not received.

Other items discussed at the Club Assembly: 1. The October 17 Fund-Raiser is financially reconciled pending receipt of one “donation” and payment of the final fee to the Catch Venue. (David) 2. The 4 Shelter Boxes sent to Haiti are a great effort by our Club as spearheaded by Pat and Jim to whom we all owe a big thanks. At the assembly many members continued to dig deep to fund boxes 5 and 6. 3 Mongolian Children’s Foundation will receive 20,000Thb in medicine from RCoPB. (OB) 4 There are five Comrel(s) to be hosted by RCoPB (01,02,03 February) which are administered capably as always by Brad. 5. Calming Cookies and Milk

We have enjoyed a prior presentation from Dr. Prick – on Acupuncture Next Tuesday a different approach will enable those present to learn more on the benefits of Chiropractor to take care of

Last Tuesday’s Meeting 19th January 2010 your aches & pains and also know how it can help you. No Visiting Rotarians or Visitors were in attendance for the

CLUB ASSEMBLY The Club Assembly, is the medium to speak - listen & also learn what other members feel are important to the well being and the continuing strengths of a Rotary Club.

6. The Board is asking for the Club at large to help find a President Elect and roster of good support members to support him/her for 2010/2011. 7. The next Fundraiser will probably be at Splash Jungle in Mai Khau and will be a fun day of water thrills, music and a bacchanal of good food. (OB)

The RCoPB has several issues which have caused friction amongst members and a great deal of unpleasantness in the way certain problems have been actioned.

In closing the Assembly

Clearly the Club had to host a purging discussion of contentions before members could once again embrace each other in the common goal of Rotary. This Club Assembly was that welcome, if not overdue, host. Fortunately, the insults and inflammatory absolutisms were of far lesser significance than the abundance of heartfelt, intense, and honest comments made by Club Rotarians with sincere hopes to air grievances as a way to reprioritize Service before Self The following items were discussed at length. Volume 4 Issue 27

George was heard to say “This will be an even better Club because of a meeting like this.” David was heard to say “I feel this Club is finally over the hump of controversy—good meeting” RCoPB should be proud that more club members came to last week’s Club Assembly than to any other Assembly of the Club to date. The future will prove that this was a fantastic Club Assembly.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU I would like to convey a BIG thank you and I am sure many others will support me in thanking Pat

Michel & James Domville

The Canadian connection of Pat & Jim has enabled the rolling stone to gather pace with donations flooding in to RCoPB for HAITI in the form of the SHELTERBOX to those in most need. This is a tangible and most effective way by those far removed from the tragedy for giving help to the thousands who have lost loved ones, possessions, homes and their livelihoods. Thanks Pat & Jim Ed Denis

The Bulletin of the Rotary Club of Patong Beach – Phuket Thailand

ROTARY FOUNDATION - HAITI update A special note for our local & overseas readers of this Bulletin - The Rotary Club of Patong Beach is supporting the Haiti Earthquake

We choose to do so through ShelterBox Canada because of the better exchange rate and also it is expected that if one of our local Canadian Rotarians send the funds in as a Canadian citizen that the Canadian Government CIDA organization will then match the effort, effectively doubling the contribution. The cost of a shelter box is Canadian $1,000 or around Baht 32,500. The Rotary Club of Patong Beach will accept any size donation and combine them to add to the two shelter boxes our club has already donated along with several others from our Rotarians, and list them as donated from the “The People of Phuket through the Rotary Club of Patong Beach”. Credit from such donations will be posted at our website Account Name: Rotary Club of Patong Beach / Charity (Haiti Relief) Account Number: 563-3-014807 Bank Name: Bangkok Bank Plc., Co., Ltd.
