Weekly Bulletin


Gloria O'Dowd

I was born in Woodville and schooled in Taranaki at Tarata, Egmont Village and Inglewood High Schools.  I went to Australia in 1979 for my big OE and met Bill and we married in 1989. I spent 14 years working for an International Manufacturing company in Sydney, in the Customer Service and order department.  I was the Customer Service Manager for 7 years. After this Bill and I ran our own retail business on the Central Coast of NSW for 19 years.  I had by this time spent 36 years living in Australia and we decided it was time to retire and in 2015 returned to New Zealand leaving behind our grown up children. We have 5 children between us, 12 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.  All of them live in the Australian states of New South Wales and South Australia.  I have been a Rotarian since August 2006.
Guests this week were 
Rob Maetzig
President New Plymouth North Rotary Club
Terence Costello
New Plymouth Harcourts Real Estate Agent 
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

Mel gave us a quiz of General Knowledge questions.
Stuart has received a visit from the Hamilton Alternative Limb service and in the near future will have a prosthetic limb to give him balance and support whilst doing some of the everyday things.  He trys to get out on his mobility scooter everyday, weather dependent and notices a lot of issues with footpaths, traffic lights and crossing major roads safely.
