Fellowship Dinner - January 2020
 
We had a great club fellowship dinner together on the 23rd January at Urban Soul in Karaka. Lots of chat and laughs about the summer hoildays. 
Rotary National Science and Technology Forum - 2020
 
President Grant, Catherine Armstrong and Roger Goldstone
 
Last Thursday evenings speaker was Papakura High Student, Catherine Armstrong who attended the 2020 Science and Technology forum in January. She shared with us her experience and thoughts of the two week programme. She thoroughly enjoyed her time and was able to compare Universities and programmes offered in her preferred field of study, giving her a clearer idea of where and what she intends to study at tertiary level. Her enthusiasm and enjoyment of her time at the forum was obvious and she expressed genuine gratitude on her selection and sponsorship.  We wish her well!

Cassidy Faber is the face of this new campaign - nice work Cassidy.
Through Rotary’s service projects, peace fellowships, and scholarships, our members are taking action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
Rotary initiatives range from the very local through the projects of individual clubs through to strategic global partnerships with long-term focus. It is said we “wage peace” and you are invited to join us in a way that suits what is important to you. There will be posts over the next few days touching on some of Rotary’s peace initiatives. Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention / Resolution is one of Rotary's Areas of Focus.

Halfway around the world in 36 days

On 2 June 2019, Lee Harman and Bill Ward set off from the Great Wall of China outside Beijing. Their destination, the Place Vendôme in Paris, lay 9,779 bumpy, muddy, dusty miles away. Their vehicle: a car built before either of them was born. This was Day 1 of the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge, also known as P2P, a classic car rally that re-creates a 1907 race famed as one of the first automobile endurance events.
