Club Members who have not given notice of their inability to attend the meeting are expected to pay the cost of the dinner being $20.  Members can pay by cash or EFTpos at the fellowship table on arrival or online to Maryborough Rotary. 
Have you thought about prepaying a block of meeting fees online?  Club Treasurer Peter Haywood would be interested in hearing from members who would like to adopt this method.  

Each week four Club Members are rostered for Fellowship to assist in setting up the meeting room, greeting attendees, collecting monies and managing the drinks table. If you are rostered and unable to attend the meeting you are requested to arrange a replacement as you are all needed.

 Riseley's Remarkables Ramblings
I am looking forward to the bus trip and the fun we will have on the way to the Christmas party at Warrenmang Winery. Former owners the Bazzani's are donating some wine to be raffled, one of these bottles is a 1.5 litre Black Puma valued at $180, this is an item never sold. Plus we will have a Gingerbread House and another prize. 
We have music provided by our favourite musicians for an absolutely magical night.
Its hard to believe that Christmas is nearly upon us again. I hope that those who are already travelling have a safe trip and a wonderful time. 
Thank you for the time and effort everyone has put in to their Rotary life, you are all valued more than you realise.
Have a great week. :)
