This Week's Meeting 
Our guest speaker is Barbara McKerrow -  CEO of the Wellington City Council
This will be a great opportunity to bring a guest or a friend to hear what is happening in our city
I am sure we will be updated and learn about the challenges we all face living in a modern city like Wellington
Please let Malcolm know ASAP who you are bringing to Rotary on Tuesday night
President's Piece
This Tuesday we will be having the CEO of Wellington City Council come to talk to us.
I have heard many times that to attract new members we need to have ‘high profile speakers’ well here is the chance to put those words into action, to see if you can walk the talk.
Let’s have a big turn out Tuesday.
Last week it was great to see Laura awarded a Sapphire Pin PHF, I know she had been involved with communications at district level but hadn’t realised it was over 10 years, well done Laura. It was also interesting to hear DG Gillian give a run down on how her year had gone, yes the year had been different but some good things came out of it. Rotary is continuing to evolve and the passion for service is still alive and well even in a year of turmoil.
Adding in Kevin’s anecdotes about some of the characters he had met was great, and matches what I have experienced over my years in Rotary.
Rotary has some great things to offer, but to make the most of them we need to share Rotary with others.
Let’s do Rotary together
President Richard
Last week's meeting
Last week we welcomed our District Governor Gillian Jones and Kevin to our weekly meeting.

Gillian shared with us some of her highlights and the special things you see and hear when you are the District Governor.
The evening was extra special as Gillian presented our own member Laura Sommer with a District PHF Sapphire Pin.
Laura has been working in the District Communications team for many years, this recognition and and presentation has been well earned.
Congratulations Laura

Book Fair 2021 Update
We are receiving huge number of books each day from our book box at New World Tawa.
Whilst a small few are working daily sorting books at Beanstalk it is clear that with the Bookfair only some 3 weeks away we need to have more hands helping.
Can we ask for as many members as are available to help sort books and set out books next Saturday 19th at 9am until around noon please?
Gaylene and I will be there and look forward to seeing you even if it is only 1 hour. Every effort helps.
Starting this week Community Radio will start promoting our Bookfair initialing telling everyone that we  have had 20 boxes of Science Fiction books donated!
Tell your friends, neighbours to come and buy - we open Saturday 3 July at 8am.
Tony will have roster sheets at Rotary this week. Makes sure you speak to him
