Ladies Rotary Weekend

Well we can't actually tell you much as.... yep you know it - what happens on ladies Rotary weekend away stays there!
 
Suffice to say, Josie you did us proud at your wonderful and oh so remote (so remote) lodge.
 
A great weekend to spend some quality time together. Despite the gales we managed to get out and about exploring the bike trails and marvelling at the fantastic views.

Thoughts with Annmarie

Annemarie had a bad fall last week and was taken to Rotorua Hospital with a compression fracture of the ankle. Last heard, she was still waiting for news on when her ankle would be operated on. The Dr's were waiting for swelling to go down. 
Further updates will be provided when available. 
 
5 Minute Speaker 
Our 5 minute speaker was Raechel Osborne CEO of Kapiti Youth Support or KYS.
 
At the meeting she was presented with the Paul harris Fellow recognition  for her outstanding contribution to the Kapiti community, particularly to youth through KYS.
 
Kapiti Rotary has been a financial supporter and advocate of KYS for many years because it is an effective provider of health and support services for youth, a sector that club members are particularly interested to see have every chance to get ahead.

15 Minute Speaker: Off the Page

 
Anne Russell and Rosemary Emery from Off the Page, designers of fun, educational e books tailored to older emergent reader explained to members that it all started when they discovered there were literally no books 
available for teenagers with reading difficulties, so they set about doing something about it.
 
They have now written three series and are selling their motivating and inspiring books worldwide.
