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
Condolence

Sincere condolences to President Jon, Tracey and family on the very sad loss of Jon’s Mum Connie on Tuesday 30th April. The thoughts and prayers of all members and their partners are with the Faber family during this difficult period.

Club Meeting Thursday 9th May. RYLA 2020 Presentation & Discussion.

Our club is the organising Club for RYLA 2020 and it is with the utmost of pleasure and confidence that we can announce that our very newest (yet to be inducted) member Mike Williamson has been appointed and has accepted the role of Operations Chairperson.
I know that you will all join me in congratulating Mike in this important role and like me will back him to the hilt in this important club responsibility.
At the risk of being overzealous I have asked Peter Ross our District Youth Chair, to come out to our club next Thursday night to give us a very broad rundown on his expectations. This will be vital for both Mike and the members in general and although Bernie Kay led the Club many years back in this project, the format and structure is quite different today.
Please attend if you haven’t headed off to Conference as this is an important discussion and will be very interesting.
See you Thursday. Cheers George
