A very special Rotary week for our club as we celebrated Murray's 50th Anniversary.  
Thank you to Warren Mills for helping me to to organise it and Lynn for the amazing, tasty cupcakes. And special thank you to Roger who arranged with Pam about how we could pull this off without Murray's knowledge. 
Normality returned to my working life as I returned to work last Tuesday, albeit if it felt slightly weird after 102 days away but I am no longer using my laptop clamped with a spanner and I am back to the luxury of two screens.  It has been enlightening hearing the angst our Health & Safety Manager is enduring as he navigates the ever changing & ambiguous Ministry of Health advice, together with staff confusion.  Our work environment, like so many companies, has changed forever but it is encouraging to see the return of some kind of normality. 
Club Anniversaries!
Congratulations to:
Murray -50 years Papakura Rotary (09-12-1971)
Lloyd - 30 years Papakura Rotary (05-12-91)
Joanne - 8 years Papakura Rotary (12-12-13)
