While I was down in ChCh for our Annual Rotary Institute (gathering of many, many PDG's from both New Zealand, Pacific Islands & Australia) I attended a Foundation event, where I received some more Rotary bling....... I got this for becoming a Major Donor Level 1. (this is contributing $10,000 US) It sounds a lot, but have been working on small payments over the past 20 years, so with a little boost, finally got there........& know it will be well used for Doing Good in the World.
Got to dress up as well, as not many bling bling events, what with having kids, so nice to get out of jeans or work gear & get dolled up for the event.
Institute was a great time to catch up with many old friends, plus listen to some great quest speakers. As usual some awesome, & some not so, but a great variety. Even had time to head up to Hanmer Springs with Mum & Dad afterwards, which was really nice. Now back for school holidays...........
