This is your life - Dame Beverley Wakem

Dame Beverley WakemOn 23 June, we have a "Special Night" to celebrate President Martin's last Club night before Changeover. Partners are welcome to join us to hear:Hewitt Humphrey

Award winning Radio NZ broadcaster Hewitt Humphrey QSM JP will interview live the Chief Ombudsman, Dame Beverley Wakem DNZM CBE - a special setting is being arranged at the Bowling Club.

Similar to a "This is Your Life" programme, Hewitt will canvas Dame Beverley's extensive career in broadcasting, business and her current role as Chief Ombudsman. Additionally, Dame Beverley first became involved with Rotary as a Rotary Scholar, travelling to the USA and later joined Rotary as the first female member of the Rotary Club of Wellington and became the first female President of that Club. Both she and Hewitt are still current members.

So a "Real Rotary Night" and it would be great to see a large attendance.

Stadium – Fundraiser for Charity

We have been offered the opportunity to help at the Westpac Stadium for the Semi Final Super 15 Rugby game. This is another opportunity to raise funds for our charity account.

We are able to have a one Duty Manager on a bar along with an assistant helping. This gives club members who are not qualified an opportunity to work alongside a qualified DM. That way we can work in pairs and manage a unit.

We would be required from 5:00pm on this Saturday night. Please confirm your availability to Tony Heyward asap.
