Helen Forrest Induction
New Member Helen Welcomed to Papanui Rotary
President Keith warmly welcomed our latest inductee, Helen Forrest, into the Club.  Helen shared that she was brought up with the “4-Way Test” on the wall and as a result is very familiar with what Rotary is about. 
After a long work history as a nurse and social worker, Helen completed a Diploma of Massage Therapy and has Post Graduate Certificates in Advanced Sports Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Active Isolated Stretch and Foot Joint Mobilization.
She runs her own business as a massage therapist and loves what she does in a job where she can help to keep people well.
Welcome to Papanui Rotary, Helen.  We look forward getting to know you better and the value of the wide range of skills and experiences you bring into our Club.
4-Way Test
4-Way Test Presentation
Following the completion of Helen’s induction Barbara Davey, Anne Spicer and Neville Digby were presented with their personal copy of “The 4-Way Test” by President Keith at last week’s meeting.
Raffle Prize Uptake
Collection of Prizes
The first prize winner of the Trailer and all its contents, Colleen Edwards from Marton, arranged for her stepson Thomas and his partner Rebecca to collect it from Verdi’s place on Friday as they were driving North that day to attend a family event.
2nd and 3rd prize winners collected their goods at the Papanui Club last Saturday.  They were:
Sandra Mahan (right) from Christchurch who won the BBQ and Charlie Christie (centre) from Belfast who won the appliances package.
There will be an AGM held at our meeting this Thursday December the 5th to approve the Club Finances for the 2018 / 2019 year.
Please note that an article on the presentation that visiting staff from Allenvale gave to us last week will be published later this week after it has been reviewed by staff.  I will let you know by email when it is available on our website.  Grant Paice.
A reminder that this week's meeting is your last opportunity
to bring along non-perishable food items for our Christmas Hamper raffle on the 12th December.
A reminder that Rotary new potatoes for Xmas from the Belfast club will be available again. They are Cliff Kidneys and are $5.00 per 2.00kg box (same as for the last 2 years).  They begin digging next week.  See the form Gordon emailed out and bring it along with you this Thursday as Grant McFadden will take orders.
Papanui Rotary Troupe in fine form at our 1st of two Christmas events at Bupa Parklands Care Home last Saturday.  Happy for others to join us this coming Saturday (the 7th) from 1:30-2:30 pm.  The dressier the better.  Don’t worry if you are not the “loudest” singer … others will drown you out J.
An urgent reminder: if you are coming to our Ladies breakfast on Saturday 7 December please email Lois at  ASAP. 
For those attending our Christmas function on Thursday December 12th at the Village Community Centre, 460 Papanui Road, please remember to bring a $5:00 wrapped gift for Secret Santa. 
Club Fundraiser
We are about to begin a 20 week fundraiser, based on the Lotto Bonus Number each Saturday night, raising $1000 for club funds.  It works like this: those who choose to take part choose a number between 1 and 40, that hasn't already been chosen by somebody else.
The person having the Bonus Number in Lotto each week receives $50 and the people with the numbers either side of the winning number each receive $10. Members can invite friends, family, workmates, etc to take a number.
The sheet of numbers and names can be viewed here. You can ring or text Deryn 021 161 5861 and she will put your name and phone number beside your chosen number.
One person per number. Money can be paid in cash at a club meeting or deposited into Papanui Rotary Account 03 1355 0661945 00 using your name and Lotto, as reference. $60 can be paid up front or divided into 3x $20 payments.
We will begin as soon as all 40 numbers have been taken. It will be announced in the club chat when it will begin, or, if it is during the holiday period members will be notified by email.
The winning number will be announced in the Club Chat and at the following meeting. The winners each week will be notified and payment arrangements will be made if they are not club members, otherwise money will be paid out at our weekly meeting.
