Last Sundays Planet Youth Event held at Bruce Pulman Park and organised by Kuraconnect and interestingly named “Everyday Hero’s Day”. This day was a showcase for all the Community Personnel who often get overlooked in our everyday turmoil of living.
There was representation from the Police, Fire Services, St Johns Ambulance, and Crimewatch to name a few. Plus, a sprinkling of local businesses like Fulton Hogan, New World Papakura and Punjab Palace etc, who were all handing out food goodies to everyone.
The day started slowly at 10.00am with a Karakia and Mihimihi performed by the Papakura High School with some lovely songs and a Haka which was enjoyed by all concerned.
Gradually the crowd build up so that by lunchtime the Crimewatch BBQ was in full swing with a mixture of Crimewatch Personnel and Papakura Rotarians.

Many thanks to all those Rotarians who came along and made the effort to see what the day was about. Special thanks to those who assisted either on the BBQ or in the set up and breakdown jobs. Great stuff Papakura Rotary for showing the Community that you care. 

Warren Megget has been asked and has accepted a position to represent our club on the Executive Committee of Kuraconnect. This will provide an enduring and improved link between our Rotary Club and the Community, something that has been sadly lacking for several years.
Cheers George
