  • Welcome to guests Donna and Ngaire.

  • Bill reported that the Fire Brigade Event on Saturday was successful. The BBQ generated $406.60 less approximately $100.00 expenses for the club.

  • Ngaire from Kakohe Fire Brigade reported on the event. Some potential volunteers provided their names. Children had fun putting fires out, pulling the fire engine.

  • Liz reported on the Give Blood Program, indicating a steady flow of donors for the day. The Blood Service will continue attending provided a minimum 80 donors are available.

  • Secretary Elizabeth reported a receipt from the Pioneer Village.

  • Directors’ Reports:

    • Keith: Northtech forums have started. We need to discuss the approaching speech contest.

    • The Sergeant extracted his usual tax on members for sundry misdemeanors. Also reported that the photo in the latest Rotary magazine showed the incorrect Rotary club advertising banner. This is to be sorted with Hospice.

    • Stan ran the Raffle which was won by guest Ngaire.

  • Five Minute Speaker Ray gave his thoughts about the current Kerikeri rustic dunnies promotion “Lets Talk Crap”, and the need to keep up to date with the local body elections, especially for Kaikohe/Hokianga wards. The suggestion is to invite candidates to see what is offered.

  • Noel provided the closure: “if we had no winter, spring would not be so pleasant. If we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome”.

  • Committee Meetings followed.
