The Rotary Club of Franklin have sponsored Patumahoe School - the second school in the country to have a RotaKids club.  RotaKids is designed to engage children to come up with projects they want to facilitate that will can benefit individuals, their school, and the local community.  In doing so teaches them leadership skills, selflessness and gives them confidence as young people.  Patumahoe School picked 11 students they felt would do the programme justice. 
How many Rotary club members know where the club has come from, or the journey it has taken to get where they are?  This is important but why?  Now is the best time to write your club's history with all the tools and help you need to achieve this.
The new Rotary year is already underway with Rotary clubs, Rotaract clubs and district changeovers behind us.  New club and district leadership teams are in place and we have a new Rotary International President Mark Maloney and his wife Gay.  They are from Decatur, Alabama, USA.
 
RI President Mark’s theme is “Rotary Connects the World”.  Rotary connects the world in so many different ways; whether it is with individuals, clubs, districts, communities or with Rotary International and the United Nations.  The new logo is attractive and is a representation of a modernised version of the Rotary wheel.
 
My wife Jan and I are originally from Wellington where we grew up, went to school and university.  We have a son, daughter and a grandson.
 
A rousing powhiri haka performed by NZ and overseas exchange students from Argentina, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany and the Netherlands was the highlight of the Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) marae weekend attended by District Governor Gary and Jan.  The marae weekend was held from 9 to 11 August.
 
 
Helen Ratapu rides on her new mobility scooter with Belfast Kaiapoi Rotary President Peter Prattley.
 
For fifteen years Helen Ratapu has struggled with back pain and arthritis which has stopped her from taking her grandchildren swimming and to the park.  But now the 65-year old from Redwood can do all she ever wanted to - thanks to potatoes.
