From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
 
So this is it, my last week as President and what a year it has been!

I want to say a massive thank you to the whole club for the great support and help I have received over the last 12 Months. It really was a lot of fun, mixed in with some hard work which is often the best combination. Leading Papakura Rotary and working alongside you has been an honour and I am grateful I was given the opportunity. As a Club we have done ourselves proud and I believe we have had a substantial impact on our wider community. 
 
Changeover registration is now closed for this Saturday. Remember this is a formal evening and a chance to flash it up a bit and based on last year will be good fun!
 
Tracey and I cannot be there for Lily’s speech on Thursday which is very sad as she has just been a fantastic exchange student. Please get behind her and come along to see her off. She did a great job at farewell of thanking her host families and the club. Not a dry eye in the house. You will be missed Lily!
 
See you all on Saturday night,
 
Cheers,
Jon
RYE Selection Weekend
Inbounds and RYE Applicants getting ready for team building on the High Ropes course
 
The 2019 RYE Selection Weekend was held at Kokako Lodge over the weekend. We were blessed with stunning weather (but VERY cold nights) and were incredibly well fed thanks to Lisa van den Brink and Vicki Jones! We spent the weekend getting to know the applicants, delivering presentations on the  details of the programme and interviewing both them and their parents. At the conclusion of the weekend, we are tasked with making the 'final' selection of who would be our 2020 Outbounds.

A Call for Curtains

The Rotary Club of Parnell has been asked by Habitat for Humanity for assistance sourcing curtains for its Curtain Bank.
 
The Curtain Bank urgently needs 2 500 curtains for 200 families living in substandard accommodation. The curtains are needed as soon as possible because most of the windows in their homes are unlined and with winter on us, they are cold and unhealthy.
