From Mike the EDITOR
The Editor missed this weeks meeting due to having to work late, very late ... but this did have an upside as the next 2 days were spent at corporate training at Kokako Lodge.
I'm please to share that our contributions are standing up well to the wear and tear of thousands of camp participants over the years

President's Message
This Meeting we discussed the Club involvement with the two schools that we help namely Ormiston College and Ferguson Intermediate.
At Ormiston College we have a very active Interact Club and will be involving them in some projects and us in theirs as they evolve. Through Dave we have been invited to have a stand promoting Rotary at a school function for Parents on Wednesday evening. For Ferguson Intermediate we have connected again for the end of year prize giving for the top 2 students.
We looked at the Rotary Club experience program and will do further work with this helpful method in the future as we progress.
Sadly at the meeting Wendy Paton resigned due to relocating to Albany where she has purchased a new home. We will miss her for her wisdom and thank her for her support over the years.

RIPE Mark Maloney's Priorities
Incoming RI President Mark Maloney has four distinct priorities which he spells out clearly
His first priority is to grow Rotary “by supporting our existing clubs and also growing new clubs with a different attitude, not necessarily in a new community.” He says often people are very happy that Rotary is doing so great in their community. “Sure, it is doing great but there are so many other segments of society that are not included. We have to get those.”
His second priority is to make Rotary more family-friendly. “That’s the way Gay and I have lived Rotary from the very start. I was 31 when I was club president, and at 34 became district governor. We just took our daughters along with us. We have three daughters, two biological, but in the last five years we have acquired a third daughter, a young woman, who due to a tragedy in her family has become a part of our family.”
