10 Sep

an Event for the extended Rotary Family with friends,partners,visiting Rotarians from Napa California, Gold Coast Australia,Tauranga and friends of Rotary Rarotonga NZ high commissioner John Carter and Leonie -celebration,recognition,fellowship,a dance, FUN and stories to underline the message of Working Together

 

How are you doing. This is our first visit to Rarotonga – and after a day here we wonder why its taken us so long- especially when we have family here.

I have always wanted to come to Rarotonga – the scooters, the white sandy beaches, the Pacific’s best island dancers ( and after tonight’s show there is no doubt) Trader Jack’s- its been good luck rather than planning that saw us miss the distractions of the Pacific Islands Forum – but I did wonder whether I could brag to my friend the prime Minister John Key that I went one better by being carried in on a bigger pa’atta- By the way like last week’s visitors I cant sing and certainly no dancer – I am kinda pale coming from a NZ winter– but karimanamanata I am proud to say that Rotary in the Pacific unlike Pacific politics are well represented by women- 50% of AGs, 33% of Presidents –  it feels good to be here thanks for your warm welcome – and I look forward to getting to know each of you by the end of tonight.

from Sharon and me. Kia Orana, Bula,Good Day, Bon Jour, Talofa, Malo eh lehleh ee, Mauri..Our surname is INTERNATIONAL.

MY Rotary Family and friends …..
