Bon Voyage Lily
 
 
A very hopeful Lily with bags full of her 'shopping'
 
In the words of Pooh Bear " How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard". There were plenty of tears and some very overweight bags (which Vicki has 7 kilo's of to send on to France)  as we gathered on Sunday to say our final Au Revoir to our Ms France, Lily Boiteau.

RYDA

 
Waiuku College had a unique road safety experience last week as they attended RYDA at New Zealand Steel in Glenbrook. Our club covered the cost of the 4 buses to get the 150 students to the site and also couple of last minute volunteers, Tracey and Morris. The students donned their high-vis vests for the day and really threw themselves into learning. Great day all round and a thoroughly impressive programme.

Getting to know Tijn

 

Tijn is being hosted by our club for 12 months and during his time with us we want him to enjoy some great Papakura Rotary Hospitality.

Maybe each member could come up with an activity to share with Tijn? It could be anything ranging from hosting him for dinner to meet you as well as family or friends or to taking him somewhere in Auckland or beyond. It is a great opportunity to include him in your normal activities or to plan something you might not otherwise do.

RI President Barry Rassin, middle, with Rotaractors in Mozambique.

 

By Barry Rassin, 2018-19 RI president
Time has really flown by. As the Rotary year draws to a close, I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on all that we’ve accomplished together.
When I started my year as president of Rotary, I set a number of goals that I hoped Rotary clubs all over the world would strive to achieve. One significant goal was important, but simple: double Rotaract.
