Film “Ride Like a Girl” – fundraiser for World Polio Day
No meeting this week as members were attending a special showing of “Ride Like a Girl” at the Tivoli Theatre. Everyone who attended really enjoyed the movie and the theatre was packed, with overflow into another theatre.  Confirmation next week but the amount raised for Polio Plus was around $700.  Well done Rotary Cambridge and thanks to Ted Mason for organising.
World Polio Day – window display
A very impressive window display was mounted in Paper Plus to promote World Polio Day and Polio Plus. Thanks to those who did the display and to Hamish Wright of PaperPlus for his willingness to let us have the space.

You must advise your attendance by Thursday 21st November please. Names will be confirmed during the next few club evenings, but feel free to email Ian if preferred
Garden Festival – flyers and posters distribution
The end of October is very close so don’t forget to deliver Garden Festival flyers/posters to your assigned area/route by the end of the month. Please don’t put flyers in letter boxes that say “No Junk Mail” – or similar.  Also please return any left-over flyers/posters to Carey.
If you have any stakes for the street signs these would be welcomed.

Achievement House Christmas Party – co-ordinator volunteer
Director Ken Leatham has put out a call for a volunteer to help co-ordinate the Achievement House Christmas Party.  Previous co-ordinator – Julie Bryan had left a comprehensive list of duties which will be a great help to someone taking over this duty.
