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

Last 2019 Meeting on 16 December
Our last speaker for this year is Roger King, the General Manager Corporate Services for the Auckland City Mission.  Roger is a highly skilled and vastly experienced Commercial Manager with significant experience in influencing and leading performance improvement and culture change.  We are also collecting gifts for the Auckland City Mission to give to children in need this Christmas and will be collecting them at Monday’s meeting (they do not need to be wrapped).
End of Year Bowls & BBQ Evening
Our meeting this week was a bowls and bbq evening at the Auckland Bowling Club.  Thanks to everyone who attended and congratulations to the two winning teams, as shown in the photos.  Also, congratulations to Tarun for his incredible last two bowls of the evening.  And a special thanks to Kaye Shannon, Lindy Esslemont, Andrew Aitken, Peter Lavelle and Denis Black in helping to organise everything from the bowling teams to the food.
2020 Bangers to Bluff Car Rally
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
