Rotary Club of Papakura 

10th September 2020, Issue 10

From the President's Desk
Hi All
So not the news we were hoping for!!!
I have had a ring round of most of the Directors and the general consensus is that we will have a meeting at the RSA this week, similar to how it ran last week, and then following dinner split into our Committees for a committee meeting, which we haven’t had for some time. If the RSA want firm catering numbers, you may get a call from your Director requesting confirmation of attendance. I will see what the RSA says tomorrow.
I acknowledge that this is not what we were hoping for, but understand it is a lot more than some clubs are able or willing to do.
George and I did some ERKing last Saturday. The club who were packing did 100 ERK’s. It is surprising how much de-fragging and pre-packing still has to be done.
If anyone has contact details for the Alzheimer’s Association, please give to George. Please write it down on a piece of paper and give it to him, don’t just tell him!!!
Yours in Rotary

    Young inventor of eco-friendly bricks comes full circle
    Binish Desai began working on an eco-friendly brick made out of recycling and waste, when he was 11. The former Rotary Youth Exchange student, inventor, and entrepreneur credits Rotary with giving him the support to pursue his dreams. Now he’s giving back through a new Rotary club.
    Diving Legend 
    John Ross
    The photo of John was a reminder to us all of a man very close to 80 years old in his element on a lonely Waiheke Beach, picking through the abundant driftwood to produce an excellent fire.
    Having this Diving Legend in our club is a very special privilege. John he can still free dive for Scallops in 14 meters of water and on this occasion he had collected some mussels.
    We cooked them on a lovely rocky beach on Waiheke last Friday on a day from heaven.
    We enjoyed a day out of the box on Friday. Flat calm seas, lovely sunny day and great company; a world away from Covid-19. How Lucky are we to be in Gods Own.
