It doesn’t matter where you live as our members come from throughout the Auckland region to listen to stimulating speakers addressing business, political and social issues. Naturally you’ll network and socialise with others from a wide variety of vocational backgrounds, so it’s a great way to meet new people and an effective way of staying in touch with the community and world you live in. We are not your usual Rotary club; expect occasionally, the unexpected.

MEETING THE NEEDS OF YOUR COMMUNITY
 
As individuals, it is sometimes difficult to affect change, fundraise or be noticed. But the cumulative capacity of Rotarians working together makes Rotary very powerful.
 
Members are all part of working committees that meet on a monthly basis to plan and undertake Club projects. The committees work to support youth, local community, national, international, vocational and environmental causes.
Upcoming Events
MEETING YOUR NEEDS
 
  • Supporting and assisting your community
  • Developing your leadership skills
  • Making an impact on humanitarian issues
  • Developing relationships with your community and other business leaders
 
We are always welcoming new members, people wanting to volunteer to help with our projects or support us in some other way. Maybe you just want to learn more about Rotary. If you are interested, please join us for a meeting and experience our club. No pressure, no obligation. You’ll be most welcome.  To find out more about us click on 'About Us' in the Menu bar.

Latest News
Super cool to have a team of seven of us last week, teaming up with RC Newmarket for our designated Tuesday to pack food boxes for the Salvation Army Foodbank. There was chatter time, which mostly consisted of nudging each other to 'get a move along'. Such was our 'packing prowess' we packed over 200 boxes and kept the shelf re-stockers on their toes sourcing replacement stock as quickly as possible. 
 
Here's Colin looking startled to be caught on the other side of the camera. His job last week was to re-bag bulk flour into smaller quantities.   And Beryl in action (but escaped before we got a group photo).
 
We have been offered an additional Tuesday to help out this week so maybe we can improve on last week's box count. Big thanks to Members who are able to volunteer on a weekday for busy (but fun) service.
Is our club in dangerously good form?
Or could we do better?
More specifically, what would YOU like to see improved so your Rotary can be a seriously great experience?

Our incoming Presidents Lesley and Penny want to know your thoughts and seriously, give voice to what you want to be considered as all ideas are valued and none should be crumpled and discarded.

To help your mull these thoughts over, lots of notice has been given of a club brainstorming session on Thursday 13 May. Preferably try to come alongand contribute your new ideas, but if you are unable to get along then email your ideas, tweaks, thoughts, preferences to Lesley and Penny on lesleypenny.rotary@gmail.com, or have a chat with them.
 
So, What do you want see in your club and community? What are you most passionate about?
 
Today (Tuesday 23 March) quite a team from St Johns and Newmarket Rotarys' enjoyed the monthly scheduled packing of food boxes (parcels) at the Salvation Army Manukau Depot.  The number of boxes assembled grew quite quickly thanks to the efficiencies of great team work despite the constant chatter.  Other Rotary club teams do the other weeks and it is possible an additional opportunity may soon open up at a closer Salvation Army Depot.
Sam Lucas has some great news!

Yesterday marked Sarah's first day of work! You can probably imagine that we are overjoyed to see our first student stepping into the professional world! I just wanted to update you all to let you know the good news, and to say thank you for all your support that has allowed this to happen. 
St Johns Rotary sponsored three Year 12 students we sponsored to attend the two-week live-in Rotary National Science and Technology Forum which was held at Auckland University in January.  Mya and Joshua from Glendowie College, and Peter from Sacred Heart, recapped highlights of the programme and their experiences of the Forum to a recent club meeting and emphasised how much it has already helped each of them open their eyes to so many more study opportunities when they leave school at the end of this year.  
 
 
 
 
There is so much happening in Rotary just from a purely entertaining/recreational aspect that you should never feel bored and without the chance to meet others for some friendship and fun.
 
Just go to www.rotarydistrict9920.org and look at the events on the left-hand column. Whether it is just yourself or you take your family, friends (or whole neighbourhood 😊) for a good time out, these are open for anyone to join in on.  And that is before we consider the Rotary programmes and projects you can nominate people for or volunteer to help at.
 
PS: the shown Las Vegas evening is on the 10th April.
 
Rotary is so much more than just the club!
