 Mel – a round of general knowledge questions and everyone did well!
Graham Drake - spent the long weekend in Mokau, checked out the new Awakino Gorge bridges, has been whizzing around on e-Bike and making garden whirlygigs. Retirement to the max!
Jim S 
It's weird being the same age as old people.
I hope you are enjoying reading the weekly bulletin. If you have any ideas on how we can improve on it please let me know and I would be very happy to implement if possible.
Some weeks we have little to no photos to include in the bulletin and when this happens I was thinking it would be nice if you would like to have a section for personal photos. Photos of perhaps personal projects, family celebrations, holidays and trips etc. This way we can all learn more about each other.  If you have photos you would like to include please email to me at
MEETING NOTES 8th June 2021:
GUEST SPEAKER:             
Doug Martin is a 46 year old Community Support Facilitator and together with his wife Jules, runs the legacy and Man Up programs at Rotary House every Sunday. Doug and Jules have six children aged 8 months through to 30 years and Doug spent several years growing up on Dudley and Durham Road farms.
Doug's mission is to educate and assimilate men who have strayed, back into society, support children who need parental and family structure and generally use his passion to help people in need. The Man Up program is a 15 week committment for men who need to feel safe but not be judged. Sometimes Doug helps men reestablish their purpose in life and their identity by drilling down to expose and discuss issues that have never been addressed Jules runs a Legacy course to help and support women. Both programs are self-funded with koha and stretch as far as Hawera, manaia, Eltham, Stratford and New Plymouth. Being central in Inglewood helps keep costs down for everybody. They meet on a Sunday to share their faith and a meal and put on activities for less fortunate children. A feature of Doug's work is that he has had gang members who have handed back their patch, a very significant gesture.
Doug is a welder by trade and worked all over the world, then trained as a forklift driver at Tegel. Doug and Jules help nearly 100 men, women and children and their religion gives them the strength to cope.
Doug says that he tells his people that "its easy to be bad, try being good for the rest of your life"

Members News:
Message from Leanne - Larger tupperware or storage containers wanted.
I've been busy filling requests for family size meals for a number of organisations and could really do with some large containers with lids (bigger than an icecream container) that I can freeze large family meals into then give them away. Anyone have anything suitable cluttering up their cupboard they'd like to give away?
