Ladies Breakfast
Great Papanui Ladies Breakfast!
Twenty-two ladies enjoyed food, fun and fellowship together in the name of Rotary. 
We were treated to a fantastic breakfast on Saturday with fresh waffles cooked by our three famous chefs, Tony, Arie and Keith. 
Much fun and laughter as Secret Santa parcels were stolen and bartered! 
Raffle Stats
Trailer Raffle Stats
A few stats about our recent raffle.
We sold 1331 books and made a profit of $17,591.41. 

We did roughly 442 volunteer hours excluding the time members spent selling their allocation.
Many thanks to all members, partners, friends and others for helping us with the selling of our raffle this year. 
And an extra special thanks to Deryn for her amazing work in organising and managing this signature project for yet another year!
Have You Ever?
Helen ran a fun session at last week’s meeting that challenged us to see how many diverse experiences we might have had in our lives.
Some of the more “interesting” ones included:
  • Plucked a chicken?
  • Had a tattoo?
  • Kissed a red haired beauty?
  • Stole fruit from someone’s tree?
  • Thrown a stone on someone’s roof?
The red haired beauty one got a few interesting “yes” responses but most related to a red haired baby or young child.
The “winner” with the most got 16 ticks but their name will remain an in house secret.
Lilies for sale
Liz is currently selling these lovely lilies at $25 a pot which includes 2 bulbs and a lovely black or white ceramic pot.
What a great Xmas gift!
