President's Message

Diary this night -
Changeover night will be July 3rd 2018. It will be a GREAT night at the Howick Bowling Club.
The Rotary Club of Howick was privileged to have a guest speaker. That came back from a years experience in Canada as a Rotary exchange student. Well done Nicola Elia. What a great speech from a young lady that is on a journey full of confidence and goals. Well done.

Fiji at Conference was good, with good food, good sleeping, good weather, and great company. For those that can turn the clock back to 2003/2004 when I took 2 FAIM Teams to Ba Village to complete 6 Rota Homes. Well, Lynne and I took a trip to the village. Well after Cyclone Winston and a couple more since then I can report they are standing with no damage and no leaks. It was a great feeling to see that we did a great job and have got very happy families living in them. Thank you to my TEAMS.
See you at Stockade Hill, 25th April 2018, at 1030hrs.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak.
Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Good night and a good week
