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,
DG Ingrid Waugh comes to Papakura Rotary

On Thursday evening we had the privilege of hearing from DG Ingrid Waugh on her vision for our District over the next year. The evening had a warm conversational tone.  Ingrid expressed her appreciation of our Club contributions to the community and happily answered questions posed to her by President Jon.  We are looking forward to working with a very forward thinking District Governor!
Paul Harris Fellow - Roger Goldstone

Roger Goldstone was recognised with another Paul Harris for his contribution to the club for his work on both the Strategic plan and the Constitution. Roger is always working hard in the background, with a passion for membership which has helped grow the club this year. He is an extremely valued member of our club and and I would like to congratulate him once again.
Fellowship - An International Affair

The fellowship in our club is one of the things that sets us apart and Saturday night's International Pot Luck Dinner was no exception. We enjoyed dishes from around the world, had great company, plenty of laughs and some good Kiwi fun.  Thanks to everyone who came along and helped to make the night a success and a special thanks to Debbie and David for being such wonderful hosts!

Brunch @ Ardmore Cafe
Please respond to your email invitation to Sunday's Brunch at Ardmore Cafe @ 10.30am ASAP.  Thanks to those who have done so already.
Malcolm needs to give the cafe numbers and so the cut off is Wednesday. 
The Big Blood Pressure Check

Our club seizes any opportunity to be active in the community and Saturday was no exception.  Bernie Kay, John Habib, George Wilson and Morris Jones spent a few hours checking the blood pressure of members of the Papakura Community and referred several people to A & E for unusually high readings! Thank you team  - you giving up your time may very well have saved someone's life!
Lily's First Move

 Lily made her first 'move' on Saturday and left her first Host family (The Hart's), to begin life with her second host family - The Kennedy-Jarmin's. Keith, Jenny, Georgia and Madeleine live in Waiau Pa and will give Lily a taste of the country life.  Madeleine is heading off to Austria on exchange in January so the girls will have plenty to talk about!
District Corner

We will be well represented at this years District Conference and it is not too late to join the group going down. It will be a great weekend to celebrate all things Rotary. Make sure to register .... you do not want to miss out!
International News

An estimated 40.3 million people around the world live in slavery involving either sexual exploitation or forced labour. A new partnership with Freedom United is giving Rotarians a chance to do something to stop it.

Roger That!
Leaders will become as small as their controlling desire; as great as their dominant aspiration.
