Times have changed and so has how RLI is being delivered. RLI (Rotary Leadership Institute) is back!  This learning programme is designed to educate and enthuse any Rotarians and Rotaractors who would like to learn more about Rotary, develop an understanding of the leadership and other opportunities Rotary offers, and build connections with other Rotarians from across Auckland and north (Districts 9910 and 9920).
 
We have redeveloped the RLI programme to enable different styles of learning and reduce the face to face time commitment while still delivering informative and engaging interactive sessions. Whether you are new to Rotary or Rotaract, new to your current club role or just want to get up to date, there is something for you.  Go to HERE for more details. The new RLI format meets these needs to create an incredibly effective programme. If you are interested please contact Beryl ASAP - the club pays the fee
LAST REMINDER!!!
 
Let the fun begin!  It doesn't get much better than this.  A great night of fellowship, a great night of rugby, (potentially) and a great opportunity to raise some funds for "doing good in the community" .
 
The Japanese expression "shinrin-yoku" means "forest bathing" and captures the joy and benefits of immersing oneself in green activities from just walking in nature to doing what these members did so ably ... shovel mulch to continue to create that wonderfully relaxing beautiful space all can enjoy in Apirana Reserve, Glen Innes.  The fresh air, the physical exercise, the cameraderie, the chatter and finally, the intense satisfaction of achievement.  There is nothing quite like it.
The act of sinking your hands in freshly tilled soil to plant new life creates a sense of incredible achievement.  Trees for Survival is a Rotary founded programme inspiring young environmentalists - Kia tupu ai enei kakano hei rakau nui - that St Johns Rotary has supported since 2009 as part of the Environment and Science Committee.  This is a programme widely supported by Rotary clubs across many schools.
 
It could be said that the club had just had a very busy couple of weeks - well even if that was the case, that didn't stop 16 club and family members turning up yesterday, in a very pleasant Autumn morning, to assist three Auckland Council Volunteers, Nanda, Ken and Roger, (who many of our members had worked with on Motutapu Island in years gone by), to assist in preparing an area for the planting of another 600 native trees in this small but attractive reserve, situated between Apirana Ave and the main trunk railway line.   It is great fun working together to achieve so much and also very satisfying.  Ending with a coffee is a great 'reward' for a job well done.
