Two-minute talk: Brin recalled how he met past Rotarian Cliff King, who gave him a quick lesson on riding a segway in the St Columbus carpark.
Guest Speaker: Michal McKay
Michal’s 2 big influences in her life were her mother, who lived to 98 and Bernie Leser, who helped her get her first job at Vogue NZ at 21 years old. Michal was on the fashion scene when Rachael Hunter was discovered. She realised her job involved looking after lots of egos, hers not included. Michal has worked in London, New York, Istanbul and Singapore, over a 40 year career. Michal moved to Havelock North 5 years ago and has become a marriage celebrant and has a new puppy. She is Editorial Director of Living Hawke’s Bay.

Christmas Function next Monday
Magdalinos Room starting at 5.30 pm with Dinner at 6.00 pm. Prize for the best hat and bring your best singing voices as you will be the entertainment on the night.
Our club is supporting the Hastings District Christmas Cheer Appeal, which takes place each year to support people in the Hastings community, so they can enjoy a wonderful Christmas.
A reminder – gifts are distributed to vulnerable families nominated by agencies and organisations where they are clients. Volunteers match parcels to children, individuals and families and distribute them to approximately 500 families.
For many families, the gifts given through this appeal may be the only gifts their children receive this Christmas. We are looking for donations for Infants 0 – 12 months of age
Children (from infants to 14 years old)
Balls, frisbees and kites are always popular for a wide age range and anything with moving parts / wheels also goes down well. Some of the families nominated may have as many as 7 or 8 children in a family and for these large families a family gift is very appropriate: something like a cricket set, swing ball set – something for outdoors that can be shared.
Wrapping and Labeling
For our Christmas function you are requested to wrap your parcel and place a label on it ie. “Gift for 7-year-old” or “Family food parcel” or “Family gift” or Gift for individual adult”
Bring your gift on the night and place. it under the Christmas tree.
Note: giving from Friends of Rotary and Honorary Members is voluntary.
