Hanmer Springs Forest Camp Fun Day
A great day was had last Sunday March 31st to celebrate the Camp’s 40th anniversary which included a variety of organisations, businesses and entertainers.
The team “ready for action”
An enthusiastic group of Papanui Rotarians attended to promote and encourage locals to become involved in the proposed satellite club based in Hanmer Springs.
Chief cook Deryn in action
After setting up our stall which offered very well received free sausages, we took the opportunity to interact and share Rotary information verbally & in hard copy with a wide variety of attendees.
Perhaps the most interesting “attendees” were three llamas which the kids especially enjoyed.
What goes up must come down
At day end we also became involved in an unexpected team challenge: “How to take down the stall’s infrastructure.”   This took some time with many “helpful” suggestions being mooted until we finally managed to safely tuck it away in the back of Liz’s car.
