Kia ora Members
 
A big “Thank you” to all members who have played a role in Rotary during 2019.  If you have attended a meeting, volunteered, helped on a committee, run a fundraiser or worked alongside other Rotarians,  these are all the activities that make us a vibrant Rotary Club. I look forward to a successful 2020 year as we head into the new decade and the lead up to our Centenary.
 
And a special thanks to everyone who made an Auckland City Mission Christmas donation, as well as gifts for children and puddings, we also raised $1270.
 
I want to wish you and your families all a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and a reminder that the first meeting of 2020 will be the week after Waitangi Day - Monday 10th February.
 
Hei kona mai
 
Regards 
Craig Brown

Christmas Puddings
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.
