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.

And that's a wrap! Our Club's annual fundraiser, The New Zealand Motorcycle Show, reached new highs in it's 6th year and was an outstanding event delivered to the Community despite the decidedly average weather!

Argentina, here I come!

President Jon and Tracey's 17 year old daughter Cassidy has 58 days until she leaves for her one year Rotary Youth exchange to Cordoba, Argentina. She joined us last Thursday to tell us about where she will be spending her year. She will be hosted by Rotary Club Monserratt Cordoba in the heart of the city. She will be the only New Zealand Rotary Exchange student in Argentina (D9920 is the only district currently exchanging with Argentina) and we are sure she will be a great ambassador! We wish her all the very best and look forward to reading her monthly report!
