Kia ora club members,
 
I thought Viv Beck from Heart of the City was a great speaker on Monday, her insights into our central city home patch were fascinating. As we think about future project priorities there are some interesting collaboration opportunities, particularly around youth, related to Auckland’s future.
 
This will help inform the discussions we are having as a Board about how we might positively impact Auckland over the next 100 years, given the Club’s role over the last 98 years in driving positive change.
 
We have had a good set of committee and board meetings in the last week. I think members are going to enjoy the programme of fellowship activities that is coming together, and there are some exciting new initiatives underway.
 
Please let Jacqui know your availability to assist with our centenary projects; “Mana Tangata, a Centenary of Rotary”, and the “Give Every Child a Future” vaccination project across the Pacific Island nations. As these start to ramp up there are a number of activities requiring service, we will continue to provide you with more detail.
 
See you next week.
 
Hei kona mai,
 
Brett O'Riley
Stories
Meeting 18 June

Simon O'Connor, MP for Tamaki

 
Afghanistan and Iraq - a fascinating and fantastic recent encounter.
 
 
In 2011, Simon was elected as the Member of Parliament for Tamaki.  Prior to his election, his background included a broad range of experiences from the commercial, public, and voluntary sectors.
 
 
Simon was educated at the University of Auckland, and also trained to become a Catholic priest.  Though he completed his training, he did not seek ordination.  Instead, he sought wider involvement in the community to make a practical, hands-on difference.
Raised in Whangarei, Simon came to Auckland in 1994 to begin his university studies.  Apart from his two years working on aide development projects in Fiji and a year spent in the United States, Auckland has remained his home ever since.
Simon is a director on the board of Monarchy New Zealand, a nationwide constitutional lobby group, and is a frequent media commentator on constitutional and monarchical issues in New Zealand.  He has been active within the National Party for many years, holding numerous offices, and was a list candidate in 2008.

RMH Cook Night - 31 May 2018
The Downtown Auckland Club put on another very successful Cook Night at the Ronald McDonald House on 31 May. In spite of the overwhelming interest within their own Club, Gill Johnston and Kat Trevor gave us the opportunity to 
send a couple of our own RCA members. The lucky ones were Jim Johnston and his wife Deirdre - and Jim, we heard, carved up all the chickens!  The benefiting families were, as always, very touched and grateful for a home-cooked meal
in the midst of constantly caring for their little ones currently undergoing medical treatment at Starship Hospital. A lovingly prepared meal can really make a big difference during such a time!
Rockin Roger and his Dancing with the Stars partner Carol-Ann Hanna also popped into lend a hand.
Given the great success of the second Cook Night that our Club has been participating in, we are only more encouraged to put our own Cook Night session on soon and then reciprocating the kindness by inviting our fellow Rotarians from the Downtown Club. Thank you, Gill and Kat, for the great collaboration!”

Nalini attended Mount Roskill Grammar School and then completed a double degree in English Literature and Law at Auckland University.

Nalini worked as a solicitor for two years and spent three years teaching English in Japan and travelling around Asia. She has also worked as a librarian, a candy factory general hand, and a bank temp. Some people might call that inconsistency, but she calls it grist for the writer’s mill.

Nalini has been writing since she was a child and experimented with writing novels as a teenager. She completed her first full length manuscript when she was 18. While it was rejected, she kept writing and joined the Romance Writers of New Zealand. Nalini got her first deal with American publishers Silhouette in 2003 (when she was 25). While her first few books were traditional romances, her big break arrived after she began combining love stories with fantasy elements in 2006 with her book SLAVE TO SENSATION (her first book in the Psy-Changeling series).

As of early 2015, Nalini had sold more than 6 million books in 20 languages worldwide. She is most well-known in the United States and Germany. She is the New York Times and USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of two paranormal romance series (the Psy-Changeling series – which involve telepaths, shapeshifters and humans – and the Guild Hunter series – which involve angels, vampires and humans) and she also writes contemporary romance novels.
