Weekly Update - Handicap? What Handicap?






The speaker said ...

Committee night, but with the added attraction of a talk by Matthew Di Leva, who came second in our Rotary Best Speakers Award and is flying to Christchurch next week for the national finals. President Peter Cox welcomed Matthew and his parents Marie and Joe, and Rob McLagan, who with Julie are supporting the family.


President Peter noted that the fraternal and sororal visit to the Eastern Hutt club had gone well, after some self-inflicted transport issues, and that the Secondary Schools Speech contest last week had also been successful.

There is to be a celebration of Matariki at Pukerua Bay on June 24th. Those interested in joining in please contact Peter.

Almoner David Knight reported that Sue Adams’ sister-in-law had passed away and she was likely to have been known by several club members. Her funeral will be on Thursday at Whenua Tapu.
