Papanui Rotary Club Chat Snippets
1st June 2022
Our “A Musical Mystery Evening” event tomorrow night (June 2nd) from 6pm-8pm should be a great night!
It is a Partner's Night full of fun, laughter and Mystery! Each member is asked to contribute one song to add variety to this event.
If you haven’t done so already, please email Deryn here ASAP with your song/artist selection and the Fellowship Committee will take it all from there.
We also have several items from the 60's onwards that would have been donated to an op shop had we not taken them. We will offer to sell or auction anything on the night.
They include old glasses, jugs, fancy bottle, plates and other glassware, doilies etc. along with a musical decanter. Nothing of any particular value, but they could be of interest to those of us who have lived through that era.
If not sold they still go to an op shop.
Also please email Deryn via email@example.com if you are not coming to this event.
Next week (June the 9th) we have Canterbury's "Top Cop" District Commander Superintendent John Price ONZM, OSt addressing us.
John describes himself as only part of an extraordinary team in Canterbury who have been working with a real purpose and commitment over the past 10 years to do their very best for our people and the community they serve every day.
Keith received this from Emily Waiti, the Fundraising Administrator with Aviva. Well done all members who assisted on the day.
‘Thank you so much for your support with Aviva’s Annual Street Appeal! With your incredible support we were able to raise $36,081 for our Annual Street Appeal, well surpassing our expectations!
You managed to raise $836.80!
Every little bit is so incredibly important to reaching that overall total. We could not have done it without you.
Regardless of how much you raised, we are so thankful for your presence out and about that weekend. Every person you spoke to or who even just passed by, becomes a little more familiar with Aviva.
Some of them have already gone on to donate online. Some of them may decide to donate next time. Perhaps most importantly, you have helped spread awareness to our communities, so that when one of them needs help, they will know we are here and that they can come to us for support.
Thank you for all you do!
If you haven’t already please fill out this Volunteer Feedback Survey 2022 to help us improve future Appeals and other volunteer activities.
Thank you again!”
Rotarians are traditionally slow starters to support worthy ventures. Our Polio Eradication goal again this year is for every Rotary club to come up with US$1500 towards Rotary International’s contribution of US$50m.
We in Papanui have opted for Centurion membership to achieve this. To date we have raised NZ$1000, which equates to about US$620. We need another 14 Centurions for us to reach our goal. I know we can do it.
Please do it by depositing NZ$100 to The Rotary Club of Papanui Charitable Trust, Account No. 03 1355 0661945 00.
Deryn will give you a receipt that enables you to claim one third back.
Let’s Find Out about Another Club…
The "Downtown" Club
With a membership of 199, we are the largest Rotary Club in the largest Rotary District (5010) in the world!
Since 1941 we have come together in an effort to make our
community and world a better place. If you are one of our
members, we hope you will find this site a useful tool for
accessing the Rotary information you need.
If you are visiting our beautiful city we hope you will "make up" at one of our regular Tuesday meetings. Not only will you see an
interesting program, you will have a chance to meet some of the friendliest people on earth!
We hope you'll join us sometime.
