From the President's Desk

Hi again fellow Rotarians,
 
We seem to be doing a lot of fellowship events lately, which has been fun. The brunch at Ardmore Café was no exception with another great turnout. Thanks Malcolm for organising this one.
 
Dave Glossop from the New Zealand Police was our speaker for Thursday. Hearing from someone at the coal face with a passion for our community was inspiring. It will be really good to get him back to speak on Afghanistan and his role over there.
 
This week we have our new member Paul Catlow talking about hearing loss and what that means for us so make the effort to come along (there may be more than one of us need to hear what he has to say I am sure).
 
We will miss Murray over the next while as he and Pamela are off on Thursday for a cruise from Rome. They won't be back until late November, but hopefully we will be able to keep up with their adventures on Facebook.
 
Last but not least my closing comment for last Thursday; “Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly and most underrated agent of human change.
 
Cheers,
Jon

Kauri dieback is threatening one of Aotearoa's treasures with extinction. A sincere thank you to Regional council biosecurity officer Jeanie Allport for sharing her wealth of knowledge about the epidemic and obvious passion for Kauri, the giants of the forrest.

Suffrage 125

 
2018 marks the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand.  On 19 September 1893 the Electoral Act 1893 was passed, giving all women in New Zealand the right to vote.  As a result of this landmark legislation, New Zealand became the first self-governing country in the world in which all women had the right to vote in parliamentary elections.
