Rotary friends and friends of Rotary 
As we all emerge from lockdown (and some enjoy a haircut), I have been reminded of how important being a part of a strong community is for many of us, Rotary is a huge part of "belonging" to a welcoming and positive community.  

If you look back on 2021 and feel a sense of belonging and appreciation for your Rotary Club, perhaps you may feel like now is the time to step up and jump in and join our leadership team, led next year by Fabienne , you will be surrounded by a very supportive and capable leadership team.  

The Annual General Meeting is approaching fast, and will be held on Wednesday November 24th via Zoom.  It is during this AGM that new roles are allocated, as you know, Rotary clubs such as ours do not run themselves.  Clubs who struggle for helpers may also be clubs who subsequently hesitate on taking on new ideas and opportunities, which is disappointing for all.  Let's not be one of those clubs!  
Save the dates
Don’t forget our Hawthorn Makers Market will be reopening on Sunday 7th November@ Hawthorn Town Hall, hopefully we can see you there
The Rotary Family Fun Day at Yarra Bank Reserve, Hawthorn, set for Sunday 21st November. Includes RCNB sausage sizzle 12noon to 3pm
 Club HQ Conchie Hall is currently closed for another few weeks, so the plan is to be back to dinner meeting on the 1st & 8th December, more details to follow

BBQ Bunnings Hawthorn 30th October 2021
Saturday 30th October -- the first Bunnings BBQ of the season and wow was it a BIG one!! It didn't start off so well with Aldi letting me down with my order of 700 sausages and 34 loaves of bread!!!........mmmmmm not happy as you can imagine. After running around to four different supermarkets, I managed to buy up their complete supply of sausages and got there by 8.00am, only to find that Bunnings hadn't even connected the gas bottle.
Finally we were underway - 700 sausages, 14kg onions (that I chopped up Friday night) and we were in business. Lots of rules and regulations from Bunnings meant that customers were encouraged to scan their Q code, which automatically bought up the order. The young ones could manage but not so good for us oldies.
We ran out of sausages around 2.00pm and a mad dash was made to the supermarket for more...mmm.. then the gas ran out. another mmmmmm. 
The Rotary team- Lyndon, Irving, John and Winsome, Andrew , David, David B, Fabienne and Teresa - were amazing as we kept the smiles (under our masks) going. We finished the day with $1750. Not a bad effort really, and a great start to fund raising. 
Bunnings have been very good to our club. All those missed opportunities during covid lockdown have still given us $2000 (in vouchers that have been bought by members)
Lisa from Bunnings has given us another day, Sunday 14th November so if you have never had the opportunity to work on a bbq, now is your chance. 
There needs to be 4 people working behind the counter, plus the team 'Captain", so put your hand up... don't be shy... and come and enjoy the experience.

ClubRunner Corner: Composing & Sending Emails
Did you know that ClubRunner has a convenient and powerful module where members can compose and send emails? The benefit of this module is not only ease and convenience, but the emails are securely stored as a permanent and accessible record of "outgoing club communications". Note that this module does not receive emails, it's only outgoing.
To start, simply click on the Home Page Member Area button (top right hand corner), then click on Communication on the Blue Menu Bar, then click on Email Services on the White Menu bar. You can also go via the Home Page Members' Services/My ClubRunner and click on Email Message Centre on the White Menu Bar. Both methods take you to the Club Communication screen (see below):
To create a new email, click on the orange Compose New Message button.
Additionally, I have highlighted three other buttons: Show My Emails Only does just that, shows all the emails you have sent using ClubRunner, and is the default. Depending on your Access Level, you can also Show All Emails. You can also view Deleted as well as Active emails, Active is the default. 
But let's concentrate on Composing a New Message:
When you click on the Orange Compose New Message button you see the Create Email screen. This is where the magic happens: just follow the Five Steps:
Step 1: Select the Recipients
  • Various Groups of Members and Contacts are listed. The most commonly used are “Active and Honorary Members”, “Contact Groups” for eg Bulletin Subscribers, and if you have Executive Access “Club Executives & Directors (Current Year)" to select District-wide Presidents and Executives
  • You can also create a “Custom Distribution List” for frequently-used email groups such as Board Members, Committee Members etc. These will appear in "Custom Distribution Lists"
  • Ticking the tick box will select all contacts within that group; the “+” sign will expand the group into its various sections; the blue “Expand” link will show each individual contact in that particular group. Tick those contacts you want to receive your email
Step 2: Enter your Email Subject and Message
  • Enter the Subject as you would normally do. Then start writing your email; the Recipient Fast Field default is $FIRST_NAME$ $LAST_NAME$
  • There are both System and Custom Templates that can be used – click on the “Select Template” button to view the available System and Custom Templates. Templates are used for specifically-targeted emails (eg calling for Volunteers, sending an Invitation etc)
  • The email can be populated with other Fast Fields such as $NICK_NAME$, $SPOUSE_FIRST_NAME$ etc. More Fast Fields can be added using the Recipient, Sender and Account options (the Fast Field is inserted after the cursor)
  • A Custom Email Signature can be created in My ClubRunner/My Profile/Settings – this will then appear automatically in any email you subsequently create
Step 3: Upload Attachments to your Email
  • Click on “Select Files for Upload” if required. More than one attachment can be made
Step 4: Choose Your Email Options and Send
  • At this stage, it is strongly recommended to use the “Send to Myself” blue button, so you receive the email with attachments for final proof reading and layout checking
  • Usually you do not include a link to list the recipients
  • Tick the "Copy me on this Email” checkbox if you are sending an email that does not include you in the Recipient List - so you have a copy for your personal records
Step 5: Send or Schedule
  • "Send Right Now" sends immediately
  • "Schedule" allows you to schedule a future day and time for the email to be sent
This Create Email functionality is not only for composing and sending emails of a general nature, the same process is followed to generate emails specifically for Events (Invitation to register and pay for weekly Dinner Meetings and other functions) and Volunteer Signups (for the Hawthorn Makers Market, the Camberwell Art Show, Bunnings Sausage Sizzles etc). As I say, it's a very powerful and useful tool.
So that's it. As always, if you need assistance or guidance, please don't hesitate to contact me - and see if you can send me a test email!
