Community & Member Activity

Welcome to Robin Aitken

President Robert and members warmly welcomed Robin Aitken at the end of June, as our newest Member.  He said his memory of Graeme Blick's mantra, “Rotarians are good people, doing good things”, was still fresh in his mind.

2020 Changeover
 Eastern Hutt's 2020 Changeover Evening
What a very memorable evening!  Led in by President, Robert Sinclair, a Scottish cord piped in the Haggis.  This was superbly orchestrated by Kevin Nelson, who then recited Robbie Burns' famous poem.

The Power of Positivity

Parting Thought: from Glenda Barratt
"I wanted a perfect ending, now I've learned the hard way. That some poems don't rhyme and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end.  Life is about not knowing, taking chances and having to change.  Taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.  So take ownership and have fun, and more importantly, take people with you who share the same dream."

Rostered Duties & Responsibilities:

Please study and plan ahead, especially if you are on duty to write a Bulletin Contribution.  A reminder that it's also your responsibility to find a replacement if you are unable to fulfill your duty.
