Rotary club takes 'Christmas' holiday
The Rotary Club of Umina Beach has not met for two weeks and will not meet this week, due to the coronavirus lockdown.
Club president Mr Bruce Croft said: "I am not in favour of setting up Zoom meetings or equivalent unless there is a guest speaker or a presentation that will hold everyone's interest.
"At Christmas time, we usually have a two-week break, so now we can have a mid-year two week break and celebrate Christmas in July," he said.
Mr Croft said a new board took office on July 1, but was comprised of the same members as the previous year with the same portfolios.
One additional member, Mr Steve Hall, was appointed to the board and took on the portfolio of Community Services.
Mr Croft said that Mr Wayne Dowdle had been name president-elect to become president next year.
The lockdown has meant that the club missed its "biggest night of the year", the Changeover to new president and board.
The club hopes to hold the event once restrictions are lifted.
