Knickers Needed Urgently
All Rotarians are being asked to donate a pair of boys or girls knickers aged for 2-4-year olds to the Fiji Squatters Camp Pre Schools.  Cost is very low, about $5 to buy a 5-pack from K-Mart or The Warehouse.  These children’s families have come to Suva to look for work and to give their children an education and they arrive with nothing and there are 4 of these camps in Suva alone.  The Montesouri teachers volunteer their time 3 days a week to teach these children through play and Rotary has donated mobile teaching kits and transportation costs.  These teachers have asked for underwear to help encourage good sanitation and hygiene behaviour.  DG Malini will take the items back to Fiji, or you can donate $5 instead and all the money will go to buy underwear.  Your donations can be left with Jacqui at the Stamford on Mondays or please contact her, to organise dropping off clothing or money to her office in Takapuna.
Rotary Exchange Student Reunion
District 9920 is planning an Exchange Student Reunion later this year.  If you can help with information to contact past D9920 Outbound Exchange students, then please send to: Email: RotexD9920@gmail.com or Graham Rea 021 757 074
Rotary International Youth Exchange
Applications are now open for high school students aged between 16 and 18 years at departure in January 2019.  These students will spend twelve months in an overseas country, attending school while living with several host families.  Applications close on 30 April and all the information can be found at www.youthexchange.org.nz
Ak City Mission Cook Off
Here at the City Mission, finding funding to provide essential services is a constant challenge and we are now seeking some assistance for a new fundraising event we are running here in March.  At the City Mission Cook Off we will be cooking a three-course meal to 150 Mission guests (a mix of the homeless clients and families we work with).  We will be cooking under the guidance of a celebrated Auckland chef to provide a special night for people who are struggling.  The Cook off provides an opportunity for Auckland's top business leaders to give back to the local community with food on the night and via fundraised donations.  The Mission has a goal of raising $250,000 of crucial funding for our food services through the Cook Off event.  Each year the Mission provides emergency food parcels to 13,000 families and individuals, who otherwise wouldn't be eating that day. We don't want anyone in our community to go hungry.  If you would like to donate, please click on the following link to our fundraising page https://cookoff2018.everydayhero.com/nz/chis-and-jim-on-a-mission You can then click on the green donate button to go through to the secure payments page.

This Week’s Meeting – 12 Marsh 2018
Our 5 Minute Speaker this week was Rumbie Muzawazi from the Rotaract Club of Auckland City.  There are a number of Rotaractors heading off to Fiji to attend a conference and also to build and strengthen international relationships amongst other Rotaract Clubs.  With the help of the Fiji Rotaractors, they have been able to compile an itinerary which includes visiting an orphanage home, a rest home for the elderly and two primary schools, which still suffer the effects of Cyclone Winston since 2016. They hope to donate some basic goods to the orphanage and rest homes, and also seek out future project opportunities with the primary schools. If you would like to find out more information or receive the list of the goods they are hoping to donate, then please contact Jacqui in the office.
 
Then Sandra Grant spoke about the Sculptureum, her and her husband Anthony have created and opened to the public last year.  This project has been a labour of love for Anthony - from his initial vision, to purchasing the art and land and then the planning, so his dream became a reality.  Sculptureum is a world of art, food and wine, located a few minutes' drive from Matakana.  It is made up of three sculpture-filled gardens and six galleries – with art installations from all over the world and a vineyard, events space and restaurant and bar.  Works currently on display are made from rock, glass, wood, plaster, metal, concrete, plastic, clay, reconstituted stone, other materials, and mixtures of them.  For example, the pink snails are made from recycled plastic.  For more information about this incredible venue or to book tickets to visit, please go to the following link: https://www.sculptureum.nz/
