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.

Combined Committee meeting
 
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.

The national finals of Rotary's Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka Awards will be in Wellington on 6 Sept., and our IPP Peter B. is lucky enough to be going down for it.
 
But the finals will also be available for Rotary members (and public in general) to view by live streaming - as stated in the following article from the Eureka website:  https://www.eureka.org.nz/news/2018/8/20/only-two-weeks-to-go
 
It's only two weeks until twelve aspiring young science leaders face the judging panel in 2018 Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards National Finals.  At stake are $10,000 and an ionic trophy for the winner of the Premier Award.
 
The finals will be held in the Museum Theatrette on the Massey University Wellington Campus on Thursday 6 September starting at 12:30.  The doors will be open for members of the public from midday onwards.
For those keen to watch the students deliver their 12-minute presentations (but unable to be there because of distance) - we will be live-streaming the whole afternoon on the landing page of our website https://www.eureka.org.nz 
 
The finalists' presentations cover a wide range of issues including: mental health, flexible concrete, superbugs, Epigenetics, solar roads, "clean" meat, food safety, augmented reality, crickets, geoengineering, bioprinting organs, and dairy farming.
 
Expect to be entertained and impressed by the quality of thinking, innovation and science demonstrated by these secondary students and university undergraduates.
As well as the presentations by the finalists we will also feature the six-minute presentations by five students who won scholarships.
 
Eureka Symposium History under "Read More"
In the last two weeks there have been two small but hugely successful projects - the Beach Clean-up and the ERK Packing.  Were these popular - nothing beats the cameraderie of a hands-on project!
It seemed like a 'half the club' turned up there was such a good group. This mornings beach clean up at Tahuna Torea Reserve was great fun and quite invigorating just to enjoy a very pleasant and beautiful place. More in the next club bulletin so make sure you have a good read. Thanks to Nick for organising.
 

Packed and ready to go. Thanks to the enthusiastic club team that joined those from other clubs for today's Emergency Response Kit packing.

What an effort!

For those who have not done this before this is precision operation to get exactly the right items packed so they will fit the box … there is almost not enough room for air.The end result is a supply of ERKs that ultimately will be 'life savers' for families in dire need in time of disaster in the Pacific.

There have been plenty of activities at Waiyevo Hospital with the project now in the final stages of completion.  The lounge and bathroom doors have arrived from Labasa, and Keith and his team of hardworking men are busy installing the doors.  At the same time too, the tiling around the kitchen is almost complete.
  
A big huge thank you to Dove Hospice (https://www.dovehospice.org.nz/) for donating good quality kitchen utensils and crockery to the Hospital. These were picked up and delivered to Jenners Freight (http://www.jenners.co.nz/) in time for the next container being packed and destined for Taveuni at the end of the month ...
