Community & Member Activity

Exploring New Zealand
One of my interests leading up to my teenage years was scouting.  It got me fascinated in the outdoors as I began working towards the Queen’s Scout award.  To walk as much of our beautiful country as I can, still happens.
In those early days I lived in Palmerston North, hiking most of the Tararuas and a little of the Ruahine range.  I had one near death experience while walking up the Mangahoa stream near Shannon doing a trip to the Ohau gorge.

General Notices:







* Funds Raised - Sergeant's Session - $108.70, Books - $9.00

* Snoods - Last Monday Jan talked to the members about a fundraising opportunity. She and a team of helpers are knitting snoods to raise money for Bowel Cancer NZ’s “Early Detection Saves Lives”  campaign.

The snoods come in a variety of colours and can also be knitted to order in the colour of your choice.
Jan is offering them to the club at $30 with $20 going to BCNZ and $10 to our club. Photos of Jan “modelling” one is below. They are great on cold days and suitable for blokes too.

If you or your family and friends would like one please contact Jan on 0274 453740 or email her on  She will also have them available on committee nights for sale.

* Illustrated Dictionaries - The presentation of 91 Usborne Illustrated Dictionaries to all Year 4 students in 4 local schools has now been completed. This is the 13th year we have made these presentations, totaling 1069 books. These are highly valued by both children and teachers, who use them as regular teaching aids.

* An Evening with Ian and Juliet Riseley - Wednesday 18th August at 6pm - Please register online for what promises to be a fun filled night:


*  Visit to Wanaka - Since we are unable to go overseas on a Rotary Friendship Exchange, Pat Heffernan, Christine Meredith and I (Anne Abbott) are considering a visit for Eastern Hutt Rotarians to Wanaka Rotarians, and then a reciprocal visit to Wellington/Hutt Valley.

Are you interested in participating?  We think it best to avoid the school holidays as airfares cost more during that time. I am thinking that this could be a one week trip if we are only visiting one Rotary group.
We can explore this a little bit more over the next couple of weeks. We'll be passing around the Clip Board at one of our Monday meetings to ascertain interest. Anne Abbott, President
