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

The following update on the ERK assembly program. has been received from ADG Dennis Millard - FYI.
 
There were no tropical cyclones in the Pacific Islands last year (thankfully), so we have not needed to replenish ERK stocks this year. The cyclone season typically runs from 1st Nov – 30 April, so we await the coming ‘season’.  Of course natural disasters can happen at any time so we must always be ready to respond.
 
The ERK assembly project is always welcomed by Clubs as members can actively participate in a very tangible, meaningful and relatable project.   The ERK Team really appreciates the enthusiasm of Rotarians for this project.
 
When we next need to get the project underway I will be in contact with all D9920 (and some from D9910) Club Presidents and Secretaries calling for volunteers to assist.
 
At this point I would like to put in a plug in for ERK fundraising.  If every Club can sponsor a few ERKs each year then funding becomes less of an issue and we can immediately start a re-stock program if needed. ERK contributions are $600 per ERK (which includes overheads of logistics, insurances, etc).

In case you didn't see it, the following story on Sam Lucas featured in the New Zealand Herald on August 17th:
 
Madagascar doesn't often feature in the headlines. Despite being the subject of a series of hit animated movies in recent years, some people would struggle to pinpoint the country on a map.
 
It's also one of the more unlikely countries where you would expect to find a New Zealander running his own social enterprise project. Located off the southeast coast of Africa and home to 5 per cent of the world's known biodiversity, including its famous population of lemurs, this former French colony also happens to be the world's fourth largest island.
 
It's also rated by the UN as one of the world's poorest countries, with an estimated 90 per cent of its 24 million residents living on less than $3 a day. For 29-year-old Sam Lucas, Madagascar has been his home since 2015, after launching an ambitious education and training social enterprise that is already improving the lives of a group of talented students. His is a story of perseverance and determination against the odds that began in 2009.

Rotary Youth Exchange - the coming together of cultures

A rousing powhiri haka performed by NZ and overseas exchange students from Argentina, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany and the Netherlands was the highlight of the Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) marae weekend attended by District Governor Gary and Jan.  The marae weekend was held from 9 to 11 August.  Click this link for the full feature https://www.rotarydistrict9920.org/Stories/rotary-youth-exchange-the-coming-together-of-cultures
Many thanks to all who participated in the Food Bank Collection last Saturday and to Miles for his organisation.  Everyone's support during the day made this collection another huge success with 80 boxes of much needed product, plus $110 in cash donations, collected.  The St Johns Rotary Club members were joined by CAB Volunteers and of course a huge thank you to Graham Fabian and New World Stonefields for their support and participation.  This was not only a very successful collection, but also a lot of fun was had by all!

Well done and congrats to IPP Allan, President Robyn, Brian, David and anyone else who had a part to play to ensure that we gave Allan the farewell he deserved, and Robyn the welcome she deserved! The evening was promoted as one of colour and the vibrancy that brought to the fore was brilliant.  You just have to have a read ... click on the picture of the outgoing and incoming Boards below to access the full story including some great pictures.
