From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
 
So this is it, my last week as President and what a year it has been!

I want to say a massive thank you to the whole club for the great support and help I have received over the last 12 Months. It really was a lot of fun, mixed in with some hard work which is often the best combination. Leading Papakura Rotary and working alongside you has been an honour and I am grateful I was given the opportunity. As a Club we have done ourselves proud and I believe we have had a substantial impact on our wider community. 
 
Changeover registration is now closed for this Saturday. Remember this is a formal evening and a chance to flash it up a bit and based on last year will be good fun!
 
Tracey and I cannot be there for Lily’s speech on Thursday which is very sad as she has just been a fantastic exchange student. Please get behind her and come along to see her off. She did a great job at farewell of thanking her host families and the club. Not a dry eye in the house. You will be missed Lily!
 
See you all on Saturday night,
 
Cheers,
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!
