Mother's Day 2020: send an e-card to the mothers in your life and give a gift in their names to safeguard future Pacific mothers
 
Sunday 10 May 2020 is Mother’s Day in many countries including New Zealand, Australia and Canada.
 
With the COVID-19 lockdowns making it difficult to be with the special mothers in your life this year, whether that’s your own mother or the mothers of your children or grandchildren, Rotary Give Every Child A Future is delighted to give you the opportunity to send an e-card to let them know you’re thinking of them. 
When you’re a Rotary club with enthusiastic members, a ton of goodwill in the community and the skills and ability to help address the needs of the needy, then Covid-19 Alert Level 4 complicates things.  The biggest limitation is that it means that your members cannot do projects out in the community, not the least because any of the older age group especially need to stay strictly at home in their bubble.  That need to isolate completely creates its own problems such as it they cannot go out, just how are they going to get food to feed themselves or prescriptions to stay healthy? A dilemma.
Due to ongoing concerns and the unknown nature of the current outbreak of COVID -19 (Coronavirus) we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the District Conference in Vanuatu. Our thoughts are with all of those who have worked so hard to prepare for this conference, which will particularly have a direct impact on our fellow Rotarians in Vanuatu and especially the Port Vila club. Further information attached.

Rotarians who have registered for the conference will be contacted shortly by email with advice on the next steps.

When I first agreed to accept the District Governor role, I was told I would scale new heights in Rotary. I did not realise that meant the Auckland Sky Tower and that I would have to jump off it. I am pleased to report “Mission Accomplished” and I survived so you will have to continue to put up with me for the rest of the Rotary year.

My dear friends, Rotary leaders, and Rotaract leaders:

A new Rotary year is upon us, and let us say one final thank you to former President Barry Rassin for his outstanding leadership. Barry, we will miss you, but we know and appreciate that you will continue to lead Rotary in important ways for years to come.

– from Jasmine Kiernan (2019/20 Governor Partner)
As I am not “working” during the 6 months or so that we have relocated from Norfolk Island to Auckland while doing our Club visits, I decided that I would like to spend my spare time doing a project that would raise funds for one of Rotary’s programs.

Rotary Down Under magazine

It’s no secret that Rotarians are good at Doing Good in the World … well, no secret among Rotarians at least. What Rotarians are historically not so good at, is promoting that good to the world. We can be so focused on the doing, that we forget about the telling … not to boast, but to raise awareness of the wonderful work we do and attract potential new members so we can continue that wonderful work well into the future. In the March Rotary Down Under magazine there are many inspiring stories from clubs that are not only Doing Good in the World, but also doing good at telling the world about it. And if you would like to send your story about doing good in the world please email editorial@rotarydownunder.com.au
