Our speaker last Monday was André Lovatt from Auckland Airport.  Amongst the 800 projects he has to juggle over the next 15 years valued in excess of 28 billion dollars, he has to build a new International Terminal wing, rebuild the Domestic Terminal along-side the current International terminal and build the Northern runway.  It seemed a massively complex task, and we received insights into the many ways the Airport is changing its infrastructure to accommodate our future travel requirements.
 
This week Rotary International announced  Nigeria, as one of the three remaining Polio countries, has been declared Polio Free.  On 21st August, Nigeria reached the 3 year milestone of no reported cases.  The two remaining countries still to wipe out Polio are Afghanistan and Pakistan, who have had 133 cases in the last three years.  We are raising funds for "End Polio Now" on 1 November with collectors at Britomart Station.  Keep the date for your opportunity to volunteer for a hour or two.
