Programme for week commencing 18th April 2013
During the last week there has been a great deal of information posted, we hope you will use this week to catch up, have a look at the Up-Date on E-Activities and the invitation our new member Mark Ward has posted about the Charity he works for, the Trussell Trust.
Plans are getting put together for our new Rotary Year in 2013/14. Janice, Sinead and Debbie are getting together next week to discuss the ideas that have been put forward and 12 eClub members are attending the District 1100 Assembly in Cheltenham on the 27th April, if any other members would like to go, please contact Janice a.s.a.p. All of these plans will be put before the eClub on the week beginning the 15th June, which is our eClub Assembly.
President Elect Janice was rung by Rtn.Peter Wells, who is the District Eradication of Polio Officer, asking us to help him with a District initiative involving the Virtual Balloon Race idea. He wants to get all Rotary Clubs in the District to sell the Balloons, with all funds going to End Polio Now. After consultation with one or two members, Janice agreed we would help, but we wanted all members to know before it was announced at District Assembly next week.
Today we sent out an email to all the attendees of the Autism Awareness Workshop held on the 16th March, it read:
Thank you for attending the above day. I have pleasure in sending you the notes from the day, and would like to say thank you to Lorna who has done a splendid job over the Easter holiday typing them up.
In the time since the Workshop we’ve continued to engage with the Autism Awareness campaign through social networks, ensuring the Autism Awareness Month message is spread far and wide. With thanks for Reuben’s enthusiasm at the workshop, followed up by Jan’s actions, in Swindon on the 2nd April we lit up Christ Church in Old Town, Swindon Town Hall and the top of the Brunel Tower Blue (see Click for Action Newsletter:http://1100eClub.wordpress.com/). Next year, with planning, we can do more.
On Facebook we have set up a page called the Autism Spectrum Condition, to help signpost support and allow for further discussion. If you are not a member please join:https://www.facebook.com/groups/343267445774143/
We are now seeking for dates as to when to hold our first Task & Finish Group to start working up the Business Accreditation idea, and also looking to run a further more indepth workshop on the Autism Condition Spectrum as requested.
The attached notes, along with your evaluation, are being used to put together an action plan, which will incorporate what you personally took on to do after the workshop. Please let us know if there is anything in particular that you would like included in the plan that is not clearly indicated in the notes. The action plan will include planning for next year’s Workshop, where we will report progress of what we achieve throughout this year against the specific goals to be detailed in the action plan.
