18 July Meeting

  • Rawiri Love is passionate about Kaikohe, even though he has only lived here less than a year. Instead of accepting things as they are, Rawiri has launched a campaign for change. On Wednesday he came to Rotary to tell us all about it.

  • The symbol of Rawiri's campaign is the smiley face. Smiling is a natural human emotion. Smiling resonates radiant energy A smile signifies friendliness and hope. Rawiri says the smiley face is also about transformation and he wants the smiley face to transform Kaikohe.

  • Already, thanks to a co-operative building owner his team has painted smiley faces on a wall of a building at the corner of Broadway and Station Road, attracting positive public and media comment. Rawiri is keen to talk to other owners in central Kaikohe who would like their buildings repainted.

  • Rawiri has enlisted support from the department of Corrections and will have help from Ngawha prison inmates in a transformation project set to kick off in two weeks.

  • Rawiri and his team are also proposing the building of a giant clock at the eastern entrance to Kaikohe.

  • Rawiri Love's passion for Kaikohe is to be admired. He is getting off his behind and trying to make things better. Rotary in Kaikohe is also about creating positive change. There may be opportunities in the future for us to work together.
