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,
Park Estate Year 4 - Thank You!

Robin and Peter went to the Park Estate School Assembly to present the Rotary Pictorial Illustrated Dictionaries to 29 of the year 4 students. These are handed out each year by the Rotary Club of Papakura in association with the Bill and Lorna Boyd Trust. These dictionaries will have their names in them and they can take them home. Robin and Peter enjoyed our involvement in the school assembly.

The Travelling Wilsons


Hi everyone! Well India has certainly made an impression on us and we have already seen so much that it is mind blowing. What a deeply sensitive and humble people they are and so kind to animals that it’s a great lesson to us!
