Papanui Bush Needs your Help
Denis asked that as many of us as possible turn out on the morning of Tuesday the 9th of February at Papanui Bush as the weeds have come back with a vengance this summer and the natives really need our help. 
As usual a cuppa with get things underway.    
The President’s Blurb
What an inspiration last week's guest speaker Trevor Lord was to us all. He is a man that genuinely follows his passion. This week we have actor comedian Mark Hadlow as a guest speaker. 
I was challenged by a member last week as to why I had not declared in Club Chat that next week was a partner's night. In fact I had not yet received Club Chat but had it on the agenda to suggest that last Thursday night.
I will however reinforce what I did say on the night and that is that members are welcome to bring partners and spouses to Rotary any time. Just let Deryn know so we get the catering numbers right. 
There are lots of activities on in the month of February and that can be a bit overwhelming but not all of them require the attention or the presence of all our members. Read through Club Chat and mark in your diaries those you want to be at. 
Deb Gimblett is organising the next cook up at Ronald McDonald House on Monday 8 February and she needs two more helpers. Helpers are required from 4:30 onwards. Her contact details which are not in the yellow book are as follows: 340 Marine Parade, New Brighton, Cell 021 105 6139 or Email
Lois Flanagan is looking for 6 people to fill 3 time slots of an hour each (2 people per slot) 2.00-5.00pm Friday 19 Feb at New World Northwood collecting for the Heart Foundation. If you can help please contact Lois on (021) 735 404.
Have a good week.
