This is an update email from Geoff Amos, president of Rotary Club of Taveuni.
Hello Ainie
It seems ages since we met at the Conference. My apologies for not getting back to you sooner. On the Mon after the conference I went to hospital for surgery, came out the next day, took a few days to be active again. We flew back to Taveuni on the Saturday, from there on it has been a race to catch up. We had a week of rain which put our building program for two teachers houses back a week, a call from the hospital to upgrade a doctor's house due to lack of maintenance, blame Min of Health, we are doing the job because we need doctors at the hospital.
I thought your offer to invite all to your changeover was amazing, unbelievable and incredible. Thank you most sincerely. We do need all the help we can get. The wants are many and varied. However the two most important are our focus on Women's projects and the rebuilding of TC  Winston destroyed classrooms and teachers houses.
Last Monday the Chairman, Bob Fulton and 3 Directors of Fulton Hogan Hiways flew from Dunedin to Taveuni to be present at the official opening of the Vuna Primary School. This was the first school to be rebuilt after the Cyclone, no Govt help. Our major partners were Fulton Hogan Hiways, RC MOSGIEL and RAWCS/RNZWCS.
Yes,we would like to work with RC St. John's, we have all sorts of health and educational projects. Let's get started.
Thank you again, it was very heartening to hear how well your Club is doing.
With best wishes to you and your members,
Geoffrey Amos
