From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
Last week we hosted the RYPEN students from Papakura High school and they did themselves proud. It was great to see the confidence they had gained over the weekend and it truly is a great programme to support.
Tracey and I are off to New York for ten days to celebrate Madison’s 21st Birthday with her so that should be fun. Will let you guys know how we go.
Also remember we will not be meeting on the 18th and 25th of April so enjoy the break and make the most of the Sun while it lasts.
Quote of the week;
This one is written by H. Jackson Brown Jnr. “Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more but actually those that are giving more.”
See you all in a couple of weeks,
Hamper Help

It is your last chance to bring something to add to the Hamper this week before we draw the raffle next week.  Malcolm is the 'Raffle guy' and will gratefully accept your donation.

 Opaheke Carnival
Hi all
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you all for helping out with the Carnival on Friday night.  It made a huge difference to have you all there and the entire school community, but especially the PTA, is so grateful to you all.  We hope you enjoyed your evening!
We are happy to report that the Carnival made just over $30,000 profit, which is our best yet by about $4000!!, so we are all thrilled and grateful.
Thank you so much again,
Claire Hart
