Christmas Party Generosity Supports All Saints Christmas Lunch Box Appeal

Howick Rotarians took up the challenge at their Christmas Party early in December and raised $1640 for the Christmas Lunch Box Appeal being run by the All Saints Anglican Church for those needy families in the Howick Community. Organizer of the Christmas Party David Teape said “it was a good way for the club and its members to share some Christmas cheer with those people in the community that were in need of support”.  

The Christmas Lunch Box donation follows on from the donations of $2000 for Food Parcels made in November to All Saints and Stand Children’s Services made by the club  from the Rotary Club of Howick Community Trust in conjunction with the Thomas Brydon Trust.

Dr. Byron Kemp of Platinum Chiropractic

This week’s speaker was Dr. Byron Kemp of Platinum Chiropractic. Byron spoke to us about the need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Despite the fact he started by confessing to being “Australian” we forgave him because he is a long time resident and has taken on the task of treating some of our members.

Geoff's Report for 2016-2017

My induction as President was delayed until 19th July 2016 largely due to our club’s substantial involvement with the Rotary organised event called RYLA. This was successfully completed early in July. With the changeover to Gavin Green on the 20th June 2017, I was effectively a President for just 11 months although officially from 1/7/16 to 1/7/17!

Nicola Elia's Report

It is a few weeks before I hop on a plane and head back to New Zealand. I can’t believe my year is almost over, I’ve learnt so much and experienced things that couldn’t have happened without Rotary. My club has been with me every step of the way and they have supported me so much.

Welcome to ClubRunner

Posted by Dave Wylie
Well it has taken some time but we now have Club Runner up and working and this Keyway has been produced using Club Runner and the individual records of all members and friends of Howick Rotary.
The software has functions that will, in time, make it easier for us all to administer and manage our terrific club. Most clubs in District 9920 have either implemented, or are in the process of implementing the system. The software is cloud based (i.e. on the internet) and is also used by District and has links to RI as well.

Howick Coastguard Donation

One of the many highlights of our club Christmas party last Tuesday was a $5,000 donation to Howick Volunteer Coastguard. John Osborne made the presentation on behalf of our club. They provide a fantastic service to our community. Without their dedication there would be a lot more grief amongst our community particularly at this time of the year. A local example of "Service before self."
