Kia ora Members
On Monday we have Ludo Campbell-Reid, Auckland Council’s Urban Design Champion as our guest speaker, who is always engaging and entertaining. With lots of public discussion around the changes to the CBD road network and speeds there will be plenty of questions I am sure. We will also be announcing our new President elect on Monday, so make sure you are along to share in this news.
Please make sure you get your RYLA applications in for next week, we want a strong contingent of young leaders from the Club.
Also, a big welcome to new Club member Dr Chris Jenkins.  Many of you will remember Chris from his luncheon presentation to the Club on Brexit.  Please make yourself known to Chris at forthcoming club activities.
And finally for those who knew Geoff Amos, his memorial service will be held this Sunday 28 April from 2pm at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron in Westhaven.  Geoff was a larger than life Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Taveuni Island in Fiji and will be missed.

Rotary Interact Clubs are for young people aged 12 to 18, who want to join together to tackle the issues in their community that they most care about.  Our Club has already chartered an Interact Club at Auckland Grammar School, which grows each year (currently about 130 members) and their latest project was to raise funds for victims of the tragic events in Christchurch and they raised $3791.40 – a fantastic response from students and staff.
Job Opportunity
RCA member Jacqui Bensemann is looking for someone to fill a position within her organisation (Argus Fire) and you may know of someone who would be interested.  The role is for a Casual Office Administrator to help out on reception whenever the Receptionist takes leave or has to help out in another area.  This means the work would be intermittent and not part time, so it would suit a retiree.  They have already advertised through the usual channels, but the bulk of applicants were after a permanent or part time role.   If you know of anyone who might be interested, then please contact Diana Dempsey at (09) 972 9856 or
