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.

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.
