Our meeting on the 22nd was held at the Heretaunga Croquet Club on Napier Road. We were joined by family and friends plus some Croquet club members in a night of golf croquet. This was a very enjoyable event with the club members doing the instruction and assisting with strategy. The croquet was followed by pizza and byo drinks at the clubhouse.
Donations to the Rotary Foundation:
It is the time of year for you to make a decision about donating to the Rotary Foundation. Many members donate the balance of their dinner account to the foundation or give a fixed amount from the dinner account. If you wish to do this please let me know by sending an email to email@example.com.
Alternatively, if you wish to make a direct donation please pay this into the club account 03-1369-0176668-01 with your name as a reference. The club goal is US$100 (NZ$140) per member.
Providing I receive your advice before 1st April I will treat all donations as being received on the 31st March – your tax receipt for your donation will be issued in mid-April.
District 9930 Conference: Another reminder to register for the conference in May and for those attending to come up with a theme for the club. The overall theme is Mid-Life crisis, so we need to come up with something around this theme.

One of the latest emails from Gavin Petrie mentioned the “Give every child a future” project. You can see the first newsletter on this here. This project has been many years in the planning and is the largest “Rotary Down Under” Centenary project and the only one to span both NZ and Australia. The project aims to involve every Rotarian, every
Rotary club and every Rotary district across zone 8 over three years. The goal? To vaccinate 100,000 children across nine Pacific Island Countries protecting them against three, life-threatening diseases.
So, enjoy, and please share our newsletter and talk to fellow Rotarians about how you can get involved.
