From the President's Desk

Hello again Papakura Rotary Club members,
 
Well this week as you know we welcomed our youngest member Ash Thind at 26 years old!!! It is great to see some diversity coming into the club.
 
It was really exciting to see the great turnout for Rachelle on Thursday and she did not disappoint. This again enforces the importance of good speakers presenting to the club. Tracey and I will be looking for suggestions from you guys over the next few weeks for some inspiring candidates.
 
Thank you George for suggesting Barry and Raewyn Hobman’s grandson get support in the Sergeants session. We have had a massive contribution to the club over the years by these two people and it is nice to see it going both ways.
 
This coming week we will be welcoming another two new members to the ranks so please come and support the inductions if you can.
 
Cheers,
Jon
 
Welome to Ash Thind
 
Arshdeep (Ash) Thind came to New Zealand 5 years ago. Ash holds a Batchelor of Mechanical Engineering Degree, and is a CNC Machinist which is a computerised system of manufacturing doors.  Ash is employed by Superior Doors, Papakura. We know that we will receive much from Ash in help and service which will enable us to be better Rotarians; and we most heartily offer Ash the right hand of Rotary fellowship.
Rachelle Wilson -Silicon Valley 
 
Rachelle presented us with a very interesting and thought provoking presentation that even upgraded her father’s knowledge as to the extent and depth of her very interesting career at Air New Zealand.

Club Visits
 
Over the last couple of weeks, I have had the pleasure of visiting the Rotary Clubs of Otahuhu, Pukekohe, Tuakau and Wailuku and although I had the job of handing out the District 9920 Programmes for Schools Booklets I was so well received and really enjoyed the experience.

Rotary Downunder 
 
 
Once  again it does not do justice to Rotary in New Zealand or our District, however there are several points of general interest and of important information.

History of Women in Rotary
 
The 1989 Council on Legislation vote to admit women into Rotary clubs worldwide remains a watershed moment in the history of Rotary.
"My fellow delegates, I would like to remind you that the world of 1989 is very different to the world of 1905. I sincerely believe that Rotary has to adapt itself to a changing world," said Frank J. Devlyn, who would go on to become RI president in 2000-01.

Green Thing

A great little story from George about how being "Green" is not a new idea. 
This makes you think about what we use and waste each day. We can learn from the past.

District Corner - ERK's Update
 
 
ERK's Team final update for this year.
 
Big Congratulations to all the Papakura Members and particularly George for all the hard work on this project. 
If you take a look at the man hours that Papakura did then add on the couple of hundred hours that George spent on ERK'S. Papakura has done it again and blown everyone else out of the water. Well done the MIGHTY KURA.

In years past some Bulletin Editors tried their hand at poetry and here is one example from Warren. 
How many members can you guess?
So, who can make a new poem for 2018!!
