James Davies is the Building Services Manager in Auckland for Habitat for Humanity, an organisation that builds new homes and repairs others to help those in dire need.  As well as helping those who have been struck by disaster, they also partner in international projects to provide communities with sanitation and clean water, providing a foundation for a better life.  But this programme is not a hand-out, but a hand-up, with families having to show their commitment if they want help from this organisation.
It is that time of year again to think about getting organised for Christmas and what better way to start, than by ordering some Rotary Christmas Puddings, whether for yourself or to donate to a worthy cause, or both.  These puddings are still $20 each, with $5 being donated to our Club, so please contact me if you would like to place an order – they can be purchased in any quantity (and come in cartons of six).  And if you would like to donate some to a worthy cause, we will be giving any pudding donations this year to the Auckland City Mission.  Please contact Jacqui in the office to place your order.
Information about the 2020 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) programme will be given at one final meeting tomorrow night.  Please come along to hear more about this life-changing week for those who attend.  For more information contact Mike Williamson 021 168 0231 or Jacqui in the office.

Māpura Studios supports people at all stages of life who suffer from neurological disorders, stroke, disability, mental health and other invisible conditions.  Māpura changes lives using creativity and art therapy because hope goes beyond words.  Everybody knows someone who has suffered and everybody has a story to tell.  Please support this charity art auction to raise funds for Māpura Studio’s work, and to support our artists now and in the future. Your story could well be part of our story.  The 27 pieces up for auction include works by very well-known and highly respected NZ artists such as Virginia King, Dick Frizzell, Max Gimblett, Judy Millar and Jacqueline Fahy.  There are also fascinating art pieces in a silent auction.  Further information and printed catalogues can be obtained by calling Gow Langsford Gallery 09 303 4290 or via website: www.gowlangsfordgallery.co.nz
Organised by the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay, the Bangers to Bluff Car Rally is approximately 2500km travelling on ‘roads less travelled’, from 24 March to 4 April 2020.  The cars (bangers) need to have cost less than $2000 and will drive from Half Moon Bay in Auckland, through to Bluff and then back to Invercargill, where they will be auctioned off.  This event is now in its fifth year and the 12-day event raises funds for a number of charities.  For more information go to www.bangerstobluff.co.nz or email rod@cookes.net.nz
This Conference will have a carefully crafted programme that will inspire and entertain you and will be held in the University of Auckland’s Owen G Glenn Building, which has superb facilities and plentiful underground parking.  There will also be an exciting pre-Conference programme whether on the harbour, on the golf course, exploring Auckland or relaxing on Waiheke Island.
