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.
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.
 
Welcome. Whether you are early in your career or more experienced, we are a group diverse across backgrounds and cultures joined together with a passion for community service and friendship.  Aside from regular meetings we are incredibly effective in undertaking meaningful community projects and have a big emphasis on providing regular opportunities for involving members, partners, family and friends in all we do including socials.
If you are curious about us, contact us for a friendly, no obligation chat.  
Latest News
Members Murray, Prabha and Robyn; and Isi (Inbound Rotary Youth Exchange Student from Chile) enjoyed a solid morning of work, helping out at the Salvation Army Foodbank (Manukau) last Tuesday. This is an ongoing project headed by Peter Ross, and many Rotary Clubs have been rotating through rostered 'help' days. This week we enjoyed the company of Rotarians from RC's of Newmarket and Half Moon Bay.
 
Murray was kept busy organising boxes and restocking shelves, while we girls blitzed the re-bagging of huge sacks of flour, rice and semolina into smaller more manageable packages. We were driven hard by Mr Ross (D9920 Special Programme Events Leaders Chair) who kept us going with the promise of a lovely lunch, supplied by Sally Army staff as a Christmas thank you for the awesome work Rotarians are doing at the Centre. 
 
The final opportunity to assist (for this year)with this project is Tuesday 15 December. Let Robyn know if you want to tag along (generally 10am - 2pm).
A few of the Club's trusted Directors managed to wave the RC of St Johns flag on Sunday, at the first Stonefields Family Market Day.  This market was promoted as an 'unmissable community event for the whole family' and was proudly supported by the Stonefields Residents Association.
 
Youth Director Muriel alerted us to the opportunity and as you can see from the photograph, obviously didn't mind waiting for her turn to have a chat with Santa! Muriel reports she also found time to have a good chat to the chairman of the Stonefields Residents Association, who is now coming to our meeting on Thursday.
 
President Hugh (behind the camera), IPP Robyn and Membership Director John L also put in an appearance and can be seen here brainstorming marketing ideas for next year's Market Day opportunity.  These three were also lucky enough to have a long chat with a 'prospect' from the local Indian Motorcycle Club.
 
 
 

The Story below featured in last weeks Bulletin and the Editor would like to clarify that the funds to cover this sponsorship came from the "Brian Gibbs Memorial Trust".

The Board is delighted to announce the Club has agreed to assist with $1,000 sponsorship toward fees for a young teacher to attend an Outward Bound course in January 2021.

Vincent O'Çonnor is a 23 year old graduate from the University of Otago and currently a first-year teacher at Sacred Heart College, where he teaches Religious Education and English. Vincent lives at home with his parents and three of five older brothers, and is a keen hockey player outside of work.

He approached RC St Johns requesting some assistance to pay for the fees needed to attend the Outward Bound “Classic” course to be held in January 2021. This is something Vincent has wanted to experience for several years, as he has heard from close friends and family how this course helps one to grow and mature physically, mentally, and spiritually. The course he is enrolled for is the Classic 21-day experience for ages 18-26 year.

Vincent is looking forward to reporting back to us next year on his experience - so look out for him to feature early next year on the speaking schedule.

Many thanks to Michelle and Frances for the donation of their valuable time adding to the significant contribution that has already been made by many other St. Johns members over recent months.
