I have just returned from a Saturday evening in Paeroa helping their Rotary Club celebrate its 75th Birthday, at the invitation of their President Walter Tye.  The Paeroa Club was chartered by our Club in the depths of World War 2 and has a proud history of service to their local community and Rotary International causes.  They must be the only Rotary Club in the world to have constructed and owned a bank branch building (for PostBank) which continues to earn good lease returns for the Club, these days from a pharmacy.  I will pass their history on to Stephen Clarke for incorporating into the Mana Tangata book.  It was wonderful fellowship with Rotarians past and present to a 1940s theme, and it featured many organisations and individuals who have benefited from Rotary Paeroa’s efforts. I certainly gained some good ideas for our 100th celebrations.
 
I hope members enjoyed the RocketMan movie last night and thanks again to John Biggs for his expert organisation.  It was great to see such good numbers.
 
Today we have Willem de Lange from the Earth Sciences Programme at the University of Waikato as our guest speaker, it should be fascinating. Members Kristen Flannery and Jayne Albiston are our 5 Minute speakers talking about the launch of their new book (their book launch link https://www.eventbrite.co.nz/e/official-book-launch-for-i-said-no-tickets-61482993288?aff=ebdssbdestsearch).  See you at the Stamford Plaza.

RCA LinkedIn Update
We have decided to increase the Club's presence on LinkedIn by creating a public LinkedIn page that can be accessed by anyone - rather than the "closed" LinkedIn Group we currently have, which can only be accessed by invitation.  We will therefore be closing the old Group down.  For those of you in the old LinkedIn Group, we hope you will take the time to transfer to our new page.  If you are not currently connected to the Club through LinkedIn, now is your opportunity to do so.  Simply click on the link below and then click the follow button. We hope you will enjoy the fresher look and content of our new page - https://www.linkedin.com/company/rotary-club-of-auckland/

Trees for Survival Planting Day
This year’s Trees for Survival Planting Day will be on Friday 14 June (rain date Friday 28 June) and you are invited to help to be part of the planting and to make a difference.  This year’s planting is at Camp Adair in Hunua and our Club supports Auckland Girls’ Grammar with this project.  Students grow seedlings at their school and plant the young trees on ‘at risk’ land, where they will help prevent erosion, improve water quality, increase biodiversity, renew a natural resource and increase the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  This programme was established in 1991 and now has over 150 schools participating throughout New Zealand and has resulted in the involvement of more than 70,000 children and more than one million trees being planted.  If you would like to be part of this year’s planting programme, then please contact Jacqui in the office.
World Press Photo Exhibition – 29 June to 28 July
Our Club will again be holding the World Press Photography Exhibition on Level 6 at Smith & Caughey’s during July.  The winners for this year’s contest were recently announced in Amsterdam and for a glimpse of what will be on offer during July go to http://worldpressphotoexhibitionauckland.nz/  And please remember to contact Jacqui in the office regarding volunteering at this year's Exhibition.
