From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians and other readers,
This weekend has seen Tracey and I work on numbers and roles for the Motorcycle Show for Saturday and Sunday. Warren and Barry have also been busy with this for setout and bike check, so most of the kinks should hopefully be sorted. I have emailed most of these to the people involved so check your inbox.
We have Cassidy coming on Thursday to give us a brief rundown on where she is heading for her Exchange next year, which should leave plenty of time for the final adjustments on the show.
We also dropped Lily off at the Airport for her South Island trip on Saturday and to say they were excited was an understatement!! I for one will be looking forward to the updates.
Quote for the week (sorry Robin I forgot last week),
“When I was young I used to admire intelligent people, as I grow older I admire kind people.”
Big week ahead! Thanks to everyone who has given up their time and expertise to make the NZ Motorcycle Show such a successful fundraiser and wonderful event for Auckland. Damn proud to be part of this awesome Club.
Crime, Cops and Community

Big thanks to Kelvin McMinn for arranging Area Commander Dave Glossop to speak to us on Thursday evening. There is no doubt, we are lucky to have people like Dave looking out for our Community. He kept us entertained with his stories  and hopeful for a positive future for our town.

Lily Hikes a Volcano

Miss France visited Rangitoto on Thursday with the other  D9920 Inbounds. The weather was decidedly average and the climb steeper than she would have liked but she made it!! One more thing to tick off the Bucket List!
Ho, Ho, Ho's almost that time of the Year

Remember to put the Christmas Party on the 11 November @ John Hill Estate if you have registered that you are coming along. The cost is $50 pp and invoices will be sent out this week.
Rotary Downunder

There are some interesting articles in this month’s Rotary Down Under. I will just mention a few that do make not only interesting reading but also challenges for us as Rotarians. Promoting Rotary in RDU is something we should try to address from Papakura.

Roger That!
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.  I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe  in them and try to follow where they lead.
