Ella Klinac will be talking next Monday about the Orangutan Foundation International.  Ella visited the Borneo Care Centre for the injured and orphaned orangutans and witnessed the gruesome consequences of orangutan mums walking onto palm oil plantations and the issues surrounding the commercial use of palm oil.  The Orangutan Foundation International supports the Borneo Care Centre, whose mission is to rehabilitate and release orangutans back into the wild, as well as fundraising to purchase land to create a corridor so Orangutans can hopefully be eventually released.
It is that time of year again to think about getting organised for Christmas and what better way to start, than by ordering some Rotary Christmas Puddings, whether for yourself or to donate to a worthy cause, or both.  These puddings are still $20 each, with $5 being donated to our Club, so please contact me if you would like to place an order – they can be purchased in any quantity (and come in cartons of six).  And if you would like to donate some to a worthy cause, we will be giving any pudding donations this year to the Auckland City Mission.  Please contact Jacqui in the office to place your order.
Earlier this month we held a RCA ladies Sunday brunch at the waterfront – a great way to start the day.  Thanks to Pam Newlove for organising a great morning.

Māpura Studios supports people at all stages of life who suffer from neurological disorders, stroke, disability, mental health and other invisible conditions.  Māpura changes lives using creativity and art therapy because hope goes beyond words.  Everybody knows someone who has suffered and everybody has a story to tell.  Please support this charity art auction to raise funds for Māpura Studio’s work, and to support our artists now and in the future. Your story could well be part of our story.  The 27 pieces up for auction include works by very well-known and highly respected NZ artists such as Virginia King, Dick Frizzell, Max Gimblett, Judy Millar and Jacqueline Fahy.  There are also fascinating art pieces in a silent auction.  Further information and printed catalogues can be obtained by calling Gow Langsford Gallery 09 303 4290 or via website: www.gowlangsfordgallery.co.nz

Organised by the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay, the Bangers to Bluff Car Rally is approximately 2500km travelling on ‘roads less travelled’, from 24 March to 4 April 2020.  The cars (bangers) need to have cost less than $2000 and will drive from Half Moon Bay in Auckland, through to Bluff and then back to Invercargill, where they will be auctioned off.  This event is now in its fifth year and the 12-day event raises funds for a number of charities.  For more information go to www.bangerstobluff.co.nz or email rod@cookes.net.nz
This Conference will have a carefully crafted programme that will inspire and entertain you and will be held in the University of Auckland’s Owen G Glenn Building, which has superb facilities and plentiful underground parking.  There will also be an exciting pre-Conference programme whether on the harbour, on the golf course, exploring Auckland or relaxing on Waiheke Island.
