From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
 
So this weekend the fellowship committee celebrated the year with a dinner out on Saturday night and I got to tag along. I can't believe we are so close to the end, it has gone so fast. It was a great night, a big thank you to Donna Cox for organising it.
 
I had a full on couple of days at The Icehouse course Andy and I went to last week. I have come away with some real inspiration and have some great stories to share. It was certainly worth making time for as we move into the next stage of business. 
 
Remember no meeting this Thursday as we have the combined meeting with Drury tonight.
 
Quote of the week;
 
“The greatest pleasure in life is to do what people say you cannot do. Go ahead and prove them all wrong.”
 
Cheers,
Jon
Hamper Help

It is your last chance to bring something to add to the Hamper this week before we draw the raffle next week.  Malcolm is the 'Raffle guy' and will gratefully accept your donation. 
A date with Lily

Our RYE Student Lily has finished school for the year and is at a loose end until she heads away tp her South Island Trip on the 17 November.  It would be a wonderful chance for Lily to get the opportunity to get to know some of our members a little better - after all what makes our programme superior to others is they chance that these young people get to spend with Rotarians.

Christmas Puddings - get your order in
 
Rotary Christmas Puddings are back. The time-honoured recipe is the same, the bakers are the same and they are still vacuum packed for long life and superb freshness but this year in a heat proof bowl.

Papakura High School Charitable Trust

On Wednesday 30th October Roger Goldstone and I met with Rosalie Freeman, a foundation Trustee of the newly formed Papakura High School Charitable Trust. The object of the meeting was to gain an understanding of their goals and aspirations and to try to link them with our own Papakura  Rotary desires to assist our Community. We were presented with a really informative Brochure which really spells out the background of each of the four trustees and illustrates their linkage to the School and story behind the trigger that set them on this journey.
