From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
 
This week at the meeting we had DG Ingrid Waugh visit the Club to present George Wilson with a trophy for his generosity to the Rotary Foundation and recognise his hard work in Rotary. You are a true inspiration George and we are certainly very lucky to have you as a member of our club.
 
It was nice to hear from Ingrid that our club and the work we do is getting noticed and talked about at District level.  I am certainly proud of what we have achieved and the impact our club has on our local community.
 
I had my cousin Richard and his wife Yvon over from Holland visiting this week (who is also a Rotarian) and he really enjoyed our relaxed manor and the humour of the evening. He remarked that he wished his club had more of that. They were quite taken with the fine system and were still laughing about getting fined for not wearing shorts! Again, I could not help but feel proud of us and the projects we do. Richard left our meeting inspired and really impressed at what a small club (in Dutch terms) full of passionate rotarians can achieve.
 
See you all on Thursday
 
Cheers,
Jon.
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.

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 ....it's almost that time of the Year

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.
