Rotary Club of PlimmertonForum

President Ron asked each Director to set out their Committee’s direction for the coming year. As a rank and file member it’s sometimes hard to know about everything that’s going on in the Club. But the list of projects that each Director told us about was impressive. It’s a list, so you might find it boring, but just imagine the difference we’ll make if we accomplish all this.

There is a Planting working bee at Ration Point on Friday 26 July.  Meet at the Nursery at 9.15am. Contact Peter Jackson on 235 8204, or email

Dianne McGavin has lots of broken glass amongst her roses after the Southerly storm last month. She cannot weed or prune until it is picked up.  It is a huge task for one person.  Those who are able to give her a hand contact Dianne on 237 7739 or email to arrange a suitable time. Gloves and a kneeler are needed.

Bill Moller is still in Ward 5 at Kenepuru, improving and looking forward to visitors.

Angus Langbein is in Wellington Hospital having had a hip replacement. He will probably be there for a few days and welcomes visitors from today.
