Pumpkins for Polio 
Our Club is looking to participate in Pumpkins for Polio this year.
This project is to be a fun way for  members to raise funds and awareness for the continued global fight to eradicate Polio.
Pumpkin seedlings will be distributed to Members / Clubs in the District and we have until Anzac weekend 2022 to nurture the biggest pumpkin possible and have a heap of fun in the process.
(District will cover the cost of 1 seedling per 10 members of a club)
We need to do our research on how we can  grow the biggest possible pumpkin now and get the plot ready well in advance. 
The weigh in will be at Cromwell Conference 2022
If you are interested, keen to be part of this fun project, have a patch for the pumpkins - please connect with Chami.
Meeting Duties:
If you are not available for a duty / date - please arrange for another member to do for you and let the President know before the meeting.
