Tuesday 13th February 2018  - President Fran's Message:
Rotary Park last Tuesday was very pleasant.  A gathering of 20: Rotarians, partners and young Olivia Huddleston,   turned up for a BBQ. Thanks to Pam & Tony Brown for organising the BBQ and trestle. We had trouble acquiring a bbq table ‘cos they had been secured by other visitors! We settled on the waterfront in the sun, protected from the wind by strategically positioned cars and enjoyed  the evening. 
In Brief:
Rotarian Cyclotourist  Pascal Temmar, from the Rotary Club of Noumea Ducos Bulari came and went Saturday 3rd Feb. He is now in Te Anau, having travelled a further 770kms.. 
Take a look at the link to follow his trip
Recipe to Share – Orange & Date Salad, easy to make and DELICIOUS will include next week so stay tuned, do you have a good recipe to share?

Members who are absent for a meeting (s) but not on Leave of Absence should in the first instance arrange a swap with the member doing the same duty next month. If this is not successful enlist someone else and return the favour later :-)

Do you know someone with a great story to tell or has an interesting career?
We need guest speakers!

We are seeking the assistance of Rotarians, partners, and friends, to assist with the Challenge Brunch - Sunday 18 February at Pembroke Park, form about 8.00am to 1.00pm, but with a small amount of assistance required the previous evening.
Our involvement on the day will include setting up, food preparation and serving, plus tidying up after the event.
