21 October Meeting

  • Past District Governor Merv Huxford is a passionate Rotarian. And he's also passionate about hockey. Last Wednesday Merv and partner Bronwyn Ellison were the guests of Kaikohe Rotary.

  • It was just a few weeks since we last saw Merv, when he brought a team of young hockey players up from the Hibiscus Coast. The youngsters experienced a stay at a local marae arranged by President Don. After playing on Saturday they took part in the Traverse on the following day. The visit was a big success and Merv says it will be repeated in 2016.

  • Wearing another hat as trustee of the APEC Trust, Merv presented an agreement that will enable Rotary to offer four scholarships a year for local secondary students to sail on the R Tucker Thompson. Kaikohe Rotarians accepted the agreement by acclamation.

  • Thank you, Merv. You're a credit to Rotary and you're always welcome in Kaikohe.
