Aug 13th : Stuart has organised one of his team @ work to come talk to us about how we can better use our social media platforms to extend our reach into the community.
From Mike the EDITOR
Hi team, it was great catching up with Ingrid and John Waugh. Having been through their experience with Leanne, I know exactly how they feel and thanks to you all for making them feel welcome at our club.
Thanks to you all for your questions which I used to interview Ingrid and Ingrid to for her candid answers.
We have a potentially heavy project load in the next 12+ months, so if ever you need a conversation starter with a potential member, let them know that we would really love to share this experience with them. Who knows, they may find this very personally rewarding and be tempted to join us.
We seem to have cracked the missing log in to our Facebook Admin Log In, so in the next few weeks, we will learn to drive our social media platform and start to become more pro-active with using this great tool.

President's Message
“Oh what a night, late in December in’ 63 “ sung by Frankie Vallie if we can all remember that far back, although even if you weren’t born then you probably know the song as a classic played often on the radio.
That song reminded me during our meeting last night. A meeting where we hosted District Governor Ingrid and her husband John and heard of Ingrid’s plans for her Rotary year as District Governor. Full of enthusiasm and future opportunities hers was an interesting and thought provoking presentation as well as the Question and Answer session moderated by Mike Jaggs.
Included was the presentation of a well deserved Paul Harris Fellow Award to Stuart Wellm the club’s 50th President presented by Ingrid.
As well as Partners Lesley and Marama we also had the pleasure of Joan Swift and Nancy Robinson in support.
The Club has several exciting projects in the pipeline led by members which will take some time to come to fruition but will provide much needed exposure in our community.
Thanks to everyone who attended to support the Club for our official District Governor visit 2018/2019 Rotary Year.
Never Give Up
People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don’t know when to quit. Most people succeed because they are determined to.

District Governors Visit
Our Rotary International Presidents theme this year is ‘Be The Inspiration’ and our District Governor Ingrid Waugh is wearing this theme on her sleeve. A charter member of the Rotary Club of Parnell, Ingrid is also well known to many of us through various District Committees and her role as Rotary Leadership Institute Chair for the District.
Having the advantage of having hear RI President Barry Rassin deliver his vision first hand at Convention in Toronto, it was very interesting from the Editors viewpoint to here how Ingrid was leveraging this along with her own goals to take our District a further step forward.
Goal One is about growing future leaders within our Clubs, District and the World. Something that Ingrid is passionate about and believes mentoring within and across our clubs is a key tool to growing our people. We also have a number of seminars coming up and Rotary International is also developing new training tools. Our Presidential Citation also is designed to as a key tool to assist our goal setting to achieve a successful outcome.
