PRESIDENTS REPORT
We are so fortunate to lead healthy lives. 
 
One of my key staff the Factory Manager who is under 50 his wife Maree has had a stroke. They came to our Fia Fia night and bought a couple of auction items.
 
He comes to work at 730am then heads off to Middlemore for the rest of the day and basically nurses his wife. All our factory staff have stepped up into the gaps.

EDITORS REPORT
Doing my happy dance as was sent a very important Rotary International e-mail, asking me to become a member of the "Young PDG Committee"
 
"You have been selected for this appointment because of your experience and knowledge of Rotary and its programs. Your appointment to the committee and other proposed committee appointments were reviewed and approved by the RI Board at its January 2019 meeting, prior to any invitations being issued."
 
Totally over the moon. Loving the "young" part.....lol...... Won't know what is involved until later, as in true Rotary fashion, you have to accept before they advise what is involved....lol.....Starts July 1 2019, so will be an interesting year for me, for sure...... The things we accept!
GUEST SPEAKER - Elaine
Our very own Elaine helped with being our guest speaker this week, & great to know the background behind the amazing lady.....
 
Born in London, but really no love for the place, as both parents Irish, both leaving Ireland when 15 & meeting on a dance floor...... Found they both lived close to each other & rest history. Happy childhood, didn't spend much time in London, as most back in Ireland. Oldest of 4 girls & grew up in Coventry.
 
Left school as wanted to work & party, but after 2 years of doing this decided to do nursing. Last one to go through the old system. 1989 qualified so coming up 30 years.......

APOLOGIES TO RUSSELL
Please ,make sure that if you know you can't make a meeting, to advise Russell of this. It is a huge waste of food, & will also help the club out. Thanks.
HANDBAGS NEEDED
If you could have a clean out of handbags for the club, that would be awesome. We are looking at filling these with care packages for the Woman's refuge.
 
Please bring them along to our weekly meeting, so we know how many we have etc. Thanks.

They have spent many more years collecting the displayed works, which have been brought together for an art experience that is internationally unique. The hundreds of works on display have been chosen to amuse, inspire, and stimulate. Discover why we are one of the most unique Auckland art experiences.
- Cost - Adult $39.00, Seniors $29.00 & Child (6-16) $19.00 They also have family passes.
 
Please advise Leanne of who will be attending, so we can book lunch there. Looking at being there around 10.30am, look around until lunchtime 12pm, then another hour or so for other part of venue. Lots to see form all accounts, & well worth the visit.....
