Meeting Report - 22 July

  • This week Kaikohe Rotary was delighted to host District 9910 Governor Elaine Mead and her partner, past Governor Peter Garnett. We were joined by our Waipapa Rotarian friends on a warm evening at Kaikohe Bowling Club, despite the cold outside.

  • Elaine told us Rotary has to be adaptable. Some clubs meet on-line. Some meet on Sunday afternoons in the pub. People come to Rotary for a wide range of reasons and there are many reasons why they keep coming back. She asked Rotarians - in one word - what they liked about Rotary. There were numerous answers: fellowship and community among them. 

  • Keeping and attracting members is a challenge. But by being dynamic and innovative Rotary can meet that challenge. She said many clubs - including Kaikohe - used Zoom and other technologies to keep functioning during the lockdown, showing that Rotary can adapt to changing times.

  • And while we are struggling with an ageing membership, Elaine reminded us that we need to get the message out: there is no wrong age to join Rotary.

  • Before she spoke Elaine presented our own Liz Henley with an award for Assistant Governor of the Year- a well deserved recognition for one extraordinarily hard worker.
