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,
 
Regards,
Jon.
A French Angel in the mix

Every Wednesday sees Rotary members and partners happily serving breakfast as part of the Angels Light Breakfast Club at Edmund Hillary School. This week French Rotary Exchange Student Lily was up bright and early doing her part for the school community. It is a wonderful programme to be a part of and we are most grateful to our group of volunteers!
Taveuni Eye Project

 
Our Club has made a donation of $1564.50 (US$1050) to support the Taveuni Eye Project.
 
Each year, patients are selected by the Foundation of the Blind and transported to Taveuni for treatment. Already this year, 10 children have been among those selected. The Medical Team carry out the medical procedures and supply the very best of care for the patients. With 35 operations per day, sometimes three at once, plus the pre-screening and post-operative care, their days are full from 6.30am to 6.00pm.
