Last Meeting
Members trip to the West Coast of the South Island 
On Monday we enjoyed the vicarious pleasure of seeing some of the highlights of our South Island's West Coast.  Jaye, John, Paul, and Tony took us on a series of day walks around the top of the western south.  For the audience it was the next best thing to being there.
Colin and Jan Alford's 56th Wedding Anniversary  
Club members surprised Colin by displaying his wedding photo and the wonderful post by daughter Jeanine.
Happy Wedding Anniversary to my wonderful Parents .. they met and married in the Bahamas .. 💕💕c1967💕💕 Dad proposed whilst mum was holidaying in Canada 🍁 with 11 red roses … .. on every anniversary there after he gave her 11 🌹 roses plus one ..❤️❤️❤️ I think he came to his senses after about 40 years married as mum didn’t have enough vases to put the 51 roses in ❤️

An Evening With 
Barrie and Diane Littlefair, John and Lynne Cole, Jaye Howey (and Richard Perry) recently attended the very successful "Evening with Past Rotary International President Ian Riseley and Past District Governor Juliet Riseley".  
Te Omanga Hospice Golf Tournament
The Te Omanga Hospice Golf Tournament organising committee held a debrief yesterday and were generally pleased with the way the day went.  The amount raised on the day has almost reached $69,000.  This is the largest amount ever raised at their previous golf tournaments and they have advised this would not have been possible without the assistance of our club members.  They added they would not have been able to run the tournament without our assistance.  The committee is confident improvements can be made to next year's event.  Brian Clarke and I wish to thank everyone who assisted on the day in the Fine Dining Tent, selling of paddle raffles, welcomers, spotters at the auction.  Special thanks must go to Tony, Mike, Paul & Brian Klee who were charged with putting up and taking down 9 gazebos around the course on the day. It was a tough job! Special thanks must also go to Brian & Kaye Lummis who provided yummy prawn cocktails, chicken cocktails in the Fine Dining Tent. They proved very popular with the players. Brian Clarke and I wish to thank all of the members who helped make this such a successful event.

General Notices

* Fashion Parade Fundraiser - our International Committee's fundraiser.
Ticket sales to date have been very slow.  Please reach out to ladies, groups, clubs and colleagues and help us sell some tickets so we can raise a good amount of funds for the Club to donate to a very worthy cause. See the new season's fashion and styles.  All tickets include a discount voucher for spending in store over the following week.  Please extend invitations to your family, friends, neighbours, other groups you are involved with.  Raffles will be run on the night, so any contributions to making up baskets would be appreciated - please bring them to Rotary and give them to Linda on Monday.
*  2023 Walk for Mental Health
Shelley's team have been working hard to make this year's success better than our last.  All funds raised will go to Youthline Wellington again.  Please share this Event on your Facebook (and Instagram) pages with your friends, community pages, other contacts, etc. 
You can REGISTER NOW by clicking on this Link HERE.

The Power of Positivity

Parting Thought 
Sadly, the tremendous parting thought provided by Robin Fenwick was too long to publish in the bulletin. I have therefore included the opening thought for the evening provided by Judy Dearsley - 
Margaret Mead, American Cultural Anthropologist said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Let us be thankful for the small group of committed people who, with your help tonight, are changing the world.  One lunch, one polio vaccination, one dental filling, one community project at a time.  Let us be thankful for the opportunity to gather for a good meal and good friends. 

Birthdays Coming Up:

* Jenny Cornelius - 3rd March
* Ron Hunter - 7th March

Anniversaries in March:

* Paddy Wells - 2 March 1998
