Christmas Party for Members' Children and Grandchildren
What a great party! Thirty-four excited youngsters arrived at Mana Cruising Cub to be welcomed by Life Education’s Harold the Giraffe, and entertained by Nigel Kennedy the magic balloon man, with his large white rabbit. There were family groups of siblings and cousins, and even friends from pre-school. The children chosen by Nigel Kennedy were born actors and played their part in the magic tricks with great aplomb.
Of course, the centre of attention was Santa who came with his lovely helper and distributed gifts to the expectant children.
Boxed chicken and chips kept the hungry and tired partygoers quiet till it was time to go home to bed, although some were probably asleep in their car seats before they got to the main road.
A very successful party with special thanks to Allan Nichols and his team. Some photos below.
This week's happenings
December 2017 is Rotary Disease Prevention and Treatment Month. If you haven't received DG Mitch's December newsletter, you can read it here.
Here are two documents from Mark's talk (with Jan Nisbet) about the Cycle Opportunity in Porirua East. Donna says she has a number of bikes to coordinate (and, in some cases, repair) from those of you generous enough to donate. These will be incorporated into Jan's library and will eventually be gifted to Porirua East. The_Cycle_Opportunity Cycling_in_EP
