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,
 
Cheers,
Jon

Dear Kiwi friends and family! 
 
I just wanted to share with you how wonderful it was a few weekends ago to meet again with some Rotary Exchange Students I met in NZ in 1992 - 93! It was exceptional. We had the chance to visit Bodil in Norway, we were 5 of us (Ariana, from Switzerland, Elina from Finland, Tanya from Canada, Bodil from Norway and myself). You surely saw some pictures on Facebook... Not from me, because I am a bit lazy with social media, I sneak on your lives, but do not post much of my life...

Rotary Continues Pacific Expansion
 
Kiribati is one of, if not THE, poorest nation in the Pacific with communities in desperate need of a helping hand.  District 9920 has recently initiated two major undertakings that will help these communities substantially.  Here District 9920 Governor Ingrid is shown a community garden during her April visit.

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir one’s blood and probably themselves will not be realised.
