District Governor attends Zoom meeting
A big thank you to Gary Langford the 9920 District Governor for attending our club zoom meeting on Thursday 7th May. It was lovely for the club members to talk with Gary about Rotary and what is happening in the district. As Gary said it so important to keep connected as a Rotary Club.
Gary encouraged all members to check out the Rotary International's Free Virtual Event - "Now More than Ever, Rotary Connects the World: The 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention". 
We also had Lily from France join our meeting again. It was so lovely to chat with Lily and thank you for getting up so early.
Further to my mentioning at our last Zoom Club Meeting, I am now able to supply the required link to all those that are interested in enjoying the presentation from the RYPEN Team. They have created a wonderful comprehensive series of six interactive video presentations specifically tailored to this year’s awardees who missed out on the Kokako Camp due to Covid 19.
Most of you know Ainie Kwok who as a member of the St Johns Rotary Club, took over the RYPEN responsibility immediately following Papakura last year. Ainie has been a wonderful advocate and organiser ever since even handling the cancelling of the event at Camp Adair at the 11th hour and reorganising the entire event at the Sir Peter Blake complex on the North Shore.
