It has been a very moving day as we acknowledge the fallen and contemplate the new environment that the Christchurch mosque attacks has placed our society in.  I think our core kiwi values have come to the fore, but it has made me question how individually, and collectively through organisations like Rotary, we can make a difference in promoting cross cultural understanding.
 
We had a lively meeting last Monday, beginning with a great 5 minute talk from Nic Russell on the work she is doing to support families.  The following link is for Luka’s video which encountered technical problems on Monday https://youtu.be/cBQhyW_Nr54 and more information about Kenzie’s Gift can be found by going to the following website https://kenziesgift.com/supporting-you/deargrief/.  Then we heard from Holly Bennett, who talked about the topical subject of Government advocacy, where she is taking a unique approach.
 
Next Monday we have two speakers from the Auckland Health Foundation -  Gwen Green is the CEO and Hannah Davies their Fundraising and Marketing Manager.  This recently established organisation goes beyond what is presently funded in the healthcare system and through donations, financially supports projects, research and education for adult health services, which have the capacity to transform healthcare.
 
I hope to see you all tomorrow.

2020 Rotary Peace Fellowships
Each year, Rotary awards up to 100 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of our Peace Centres.  Through academic training, practice and global networking opportunities, this program develops the fellows into experienced and effective catalysts for peace.  The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.  In just over a decade, the Rotary Peace Centres have trained more than 1,200 fellows. Many of them now serve as leaders at international organizations or have started their own foundations.  The 2020 Rotary Peace Fellowship application is now available and we need your help to find the next cohort of experienced global peace and development leaders!  Candidates have until 31 May to submit applications to their District and Districts must submit endorsed applications to The Rotary Foundation by 1 July.  General inquiries regarding the fellowship program may be sent to rotarypeacecenters@rotary.org.

2019 RI Convention – Hamburg, Germany
The Rotary International's 2019 Convention will be held in Hamburg, Germany from 1 to 5 June.  There are already nearly 30 people from different NZ Clubs attending, including RCA President Brett O’Riley and myself.  If you’d like to know more about this event and are possibly interested in joining us, would like to fly with and/or stay with other NZ Rotarians in Hamburg, let me know or reach out directly to the District Coordinator for this Convention: Jennie Herring: herringjennie@gmail.com  Or if you would like to register, then please go here.  If you register prior to Dec. 15, 2018, you will receive an early-registration discount, which is US$395 vs. US$495 or US$595 at later dates.  District Governor Ingrid Waugh, also mentioned the possibility of a 10-day “Zurich-to-Amsterdam Cruise” leading up to the convention  and Jennie Herring can help us get the black shirts that all the NZers wear - which will really make us stand out!  So please let us know if you are interested in attending, so we can organise a couple of fun Kiwi/RCA activities, while in Hamburg!  And also feel free to run any questions by us
