LATEST NEWS
On Friday 16th October, Rob & Joanne Wills, Elaine Ebbett, Gill Johnston and Chris Hickey spent a morning packing emergency food parcels at the Auckland City Mission Distribution Centre in Grafton.  

The Mission provides around 25,000 food parcels to Auckland-based individuals and families in desperate need each year.

 

Servus! 

First of all this month has been another really busy month!! Second, I finally got my visa! Better late than never I guess ahahaha. Third, I can't believe I officially only have one month left! My new favourite word is either “Ohrwurm” which refers to having a song stuck in your head or “Kopfkino” which pretty much means daydreaming.

This month I’ve learnt how to cook Kässpätzle and Tiroler Knödel which are both traditional Austrian dishes and taught my family how to make a Pavlova and Mince and Cheese Pies because I was horrified to hear that they had never had a Mince and Cheese Pie before!!! I also made vegan chocolate mousse and went through a pancake phase. I made pasta, a few curries, apple crumble and zucchini noodles with tomatoes and fries. 

Our Club was thrilled to receive this award at District Changeover. Congratulations and a big thank you to David Graham, Mark Jenkins, Christine Fenby, Gill Johnston and Byran Theunisen who organised the 'Battle of the Suits' event and made it an unforgettable experience for Rotarians and Non-Rotarians.
The Project Excellence Award is given to a Rotary Club that has completed a club project that has impacted on Non-Rotarians.
Battle of the Suits will be back on 19 May 2021 at the Cordis Hotel.
BATTLE OF THE SUITS WILL BE BACK IN 2021!
 
WOW! what a night, 330 guests turned out in style to attend the inaugural 'Battle of the Suits' in August 2019.  We all enjoyed fine food and wine and fabulous entertainment from our debaters and adjudicators and along with that we raised in excess of $50,000 for the Auckland City Mission HomeGround Project.
 
Events like this don't happen without the support of sponsors, our sincere thanks go to the following companies for their sponsorship of this event, Milford Asset Management, Cordis HotelMcDonalds, Ellen & Company, Encore and Benefitz.
 
Debate adjudicators Honourable Justice Simon Moore of the High Court, Court of Appeal Justice Lyn Stevens, Debaters, Rt Hon Sir John Key, Tom Scott, David Downs, Katherine Anderson, Kathryn Beck and Michael Timmins, provided much entertainment and hilarity, the photos from the event tell it all, http://picti.net/kJ1q6 
 
MC for the evening Miriama Kamo took the event to a whole other level, her professionalism along with her natural warmth ensured the event ran smoothly.
