Community & Member Activity
Fashion Parade Fundraiser
On Tuesday 14 March, the International Committee held a fashion parade at Ballantynes, Lower Hutt to raise money for the victims of Cyclone Gabrielle. It was a very successful event raising more than $1800.  Special thanks must go to Jaye, Eve, Glenda, Linda and Linda's friend Virginia for modelling the many outfits on display. They have definitely all missed their vocation.  
Painting the Fence at Te Omanga Hospice
While painting the aviary at Te Omanga I was chatting with Rachel Brandt, Manager of Voluntary Services at the hospice.  She explained that a corporate group had volunteered to do some fence painting but due to lower numbers coming on the day the work had not been completed.  Rachel wondered whether Eastern Hutt Rotary were willing to consider completing the fence painting project.  Mitre 10 Petone had donated all of the paint, brushes, rollers etc and so it was just manpower that was required to complete the task.

The Power of Positivity

Parting Thought 
David Thompson provided the parting thought at the end of the evening.
The European Union was born of a dream for a better world after the horrors of WWII.
Winston Churchill said in 1948 “Europe can only be united by the heart-felt wish and vehement expression of the great majority of all the peoples in all the parties in all the freedom-loving countries, no matter where they dwell or how they vote”
