From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
So this weekend the fellowship committee celebrated the year with a dinner out on Saturday night and I got to tag along. I can't believe we are so close to the end, it has gone so fast. It was a great night, a big thank you to Donna Cox for organising it.
I had a full on couple of days at The Icehouse course Andy and I went to last week. I have come away with some real inspiration and have some great stories to share. It was certainly worth making time for as we move into the next stage of business. 
Remember no meeting this Thursday as we have the combined meeting with Drury tonight.
Quote of the week;
“The greatest pleasure in life is to do what people say you cannot do. Go ahead and prove them all wrong.”
World Polio Day

One day. one focus. end polio

The Rotary Club of Papakura, like all Rotary clubs around the world, helps support the mission to eradicate Polio.

Watch the fourth annual World Polio Day event, co-hosted with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Rotary streamed live from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, bringing together more than 50,000 viewers around the world. Joining Rotary were celebrities and experts to share our progress on the road to polio eradication. Watch here


On Tuesday we held our first free Maths Tuition for the local community at the Karaka learning centre.
Fellowship Takes Flight

Last Sunday saw a few of us spend the morning at the Ardmore Cafe for a fellowship Brunch. Again, it was great company with plenty of laughs. Thanks to everyone who came along.
Ho, Ho, Ho's almost that time of the Year

Remember to put the Christmas Party on the 11 November @ John Hill Estate if you have registered that you are coming along. The cost is $50 pp and invoices will be sent out this week.

The Rotary Club of Mumbai Queens Necklace (District 3141) partnered with the Rotary Club of Auckland Harbourside to gain a Global Grant for Project Rotary Save Our Sisters to train women at the shelter for human trafficking survivors with the skills they need to become gainfully employed, and live a life of dignity and self-respect.

When a President gives a job to those that are smarter than them, it proves the President is smarter than they are.
