FRIDAY 25TH FEBRUARY 2022

This is a super-fun event where Rotarians from across Auckland come together to raise the profile (and raise funds) for Rotary’s largest international project – to rid the world of Polio. We do this by travelling the entire train network across Auckland – as far West as Swanson and as far South as Pukekohe. We’re also including the ferry network with all the ferries terminals between Waiheke, Devonport and Half Moon Bay covered.

 

Our stories over one hundred years of service in New Zealand and the Pacific.  A look at where Rotary came from, how it developed and its future, captured in an easy-to-read and beautifully laid out book.
The Rotary clubs of New Lynn and Henderson and Rotalite West have transformed a wild and woolly pond area at Waitakere Hospital into a beautiful, workable, restful space for patients, visitors and all West Aucklanders to enjoy. In Rotary Henderson’s 60th year the club was determined, despite COVID-19 to deliver a large-sized project which would allow all members to participate in some hands-on work – whether it be chainsawing, hauling branches, mulching, planting, or organising morning teas and lunches for the hungry volunteers.
March 8 we mark International Women’s Day and it is now 32 years since Rotary International changed the constitution to enable women to join.  District 9910 was the first in New Zealand to have a female Governor and now, despite only being 27% of our membership, a third of our district roles are filled by women.
District 9910 had five students who all stayed overseas for their exchange year and are now back safe and sound.  Thanks to COVID 19 the students all experienced life in their host countries in different ways than they could ever have predicted.  We tell them it will be the experience of their lifetime - but this wasn't quite what we meant!  This is the first time in 60 years the Rotary Youth Exchange programme has been halted. Hopefully, Jan 2022 will see an outbound group but at this stage, it’s one day at a time.

For an island surrounded by water, Rotary Nouméa Ouen Toro’s support for the children’s “Learn to Swim′′ programme is potentially life-saving.
