The weather was glorious and after time on the green all enjoyed a meal and time together.  A great start to the year – A good number of members and their partners enjoyed an evening of bowls, sunshine and fellowship at the Thornton Club thanks to the organisation of Don Harris. Despite being a social evening, competitiveness was strong but good-natured between the bowls teams. Some newbies to bowls soon learnt the ropes and were a challenge for those with previous skills. The meal was excellent catered for by Brian Paynton.
Any members wishing to play bowls socially or competitively should talk to Don.
Club visit to Te Awa Village Feb 14 - Apologies and extras by Monday Feb 11 lunchtime please.
We are to be hosted by the village developer and given a full tour of facilities including a vacant unit.  I have it on good authority that it's more like a luxury resort than retirement village. Catering will be by the village chef. Let's have a good turnout for our first off site activity for the year.
The Club requires a Club Champion to organise a clean-up of Lake Te Koutu one weekend in February as a part of our International Rotary Days, whereby clubs seek to do a public project or involve the public in a project or activity which will increase publicity locally for the Club and for Rotary International. Hopefully we will get a full club turn out for this. Please see either President Ray or President Elect Robyn if this is your thing. We will need to be quick out of the blocks with this first project for the year.

Heart Foundation Appeal


Rotary Cambridge has been asked if we could help with the “Big Heart Foundation Appeal” street collection to be held on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd February.  I have indicated we will do our best to assist with collectors  to cover some of their collection stations. This is just preliminary notice of our commitment and time to consider if you could give 2-3 hours to assist on either the Friday or Saturday.
We have helped other worthy causes and it would be great to gather a good number to assist on this occasion. Names of volunteers will be called for at our meeting next Thursday 31st Jan .
I hope you can find time to support this worth cause.

Thanks from Cambridge Community Marae
Subject: Truly Grateful
Date: 25th January 2019
Kia ora te whānau o Rotary,
The Cambridge Community Marae Trustees would like to thank you for your koha which enable us to provide our annual Christmas Lunch. It was truly a successful day of connecting and always great to see people walk away with a full puku and banana smiles.  We trust that as you have given it will be returned in many other ways and that He will continue to bless the work of your hands in our beautiful community of Te Oko Horoi o Kemureti.
It’s a pleasure to be a part of a wider whānau which cares for each other.
Nō reirā, Nou te rourou nāku te rourou ka ora ai te iwi
“With your basket and my basket the people will flourish.”

Call for Nominations DG
As convener of the nominating committee for D9930, I officially call for nominations for the
above position.

On behalf of District Governor Graham Jull this notice is to give intent that we will be
selecting the District Governor for the 2021-22 Rotary year from nominations submitted to
us by 28 February 2019, with the selection taking place during April.

While it seems a long way off, we realise that Peter Maxwell will succeed Graham Jull as
District Governor next July, to be followed by Grant Spackman a year later, the preparation
and planning for this very responsible position requires that we call for nominations well

Please bring this notice to the attention of your board and club members over the next few
weeks. At the same time consult the 2016 RI Manual of Procedure for guidance – in
particular reference RI By Laws Article 16.070, 16.080 & 16.090. The policy for nomination
of District Governor in D9930 is set out in the District Constitution and By Laws (available
through the District Website) and requires clubs to propose Rotarians to the District
Nominating Committee.

Please encourage your club to identify a suitable candidate and encourage him or her to
accept nomination; Nominations will only be accepted on the attached nomination forms or
those from the RI website. Nominations close on 28 February 2019 at my address above.
I can personally vouch this is an excellent opportunity to make many lifelong friends and will
be life changing; it is also an opportunity to have a positive influence on our worldwide
community through the service of Rotary. Please do not hesitate to contact DG Graham Jull
or me if you have any questions concerning this.

District Governor 2021-22 Selection Committee

Applications for RYLA

RYLA 2019 13th - 18th April note Saturday to Thursday night

Dear Rotarian,

Applications for RYLA 2019 are now open! The course is limited to the first 45


NB. The 2019 RYLA programme is open to participants aged 20 – 26 years.
Do you know young people in your community who are showing leadership potential or skills
in their work or lives?


The Rotary Youth Leadership Award is an international programme designed to develop
leadership skills in young people. RYLA participants attend a week long workshop, focussing
on leadership and personal development. The programme is organised and run by Rotarians
who are successful business and professional people themselves.


District 9930’s RYLA programme is open to any young people in our district who have left
secondary school. They can be tertiary students, farmers, teachers, electricians, and shop
assistants … young people who show, through their actions, that they are emerging leaders.
RYLA is not a programme to “sort out” wayward young people – it is to develop
leadership skills and build support networks for focussed and enthusiastic young leaders.


CLUB to determine their suitability for RYLA and that they are prepared to commit to this
week-long, intensive development programme.


Sponsoring a young person on RYLA offers your club the chance to develop a special
relationship with young people in your community- in fact three of the participants came back
from RYLA 2017 and joined their sponsoring club as a member. RYLA offers the awardees
an outstanding opportunity to grow as a leader in a week filled with challenge, new learning,
teamwork and fun. The week long programme has been professionally designed to cover the
many aspects of leadership, and is based on a well-respected Leadership model.
Leadership skills are developed through introducing new learning, meeting people who are
living it, and giving it a go yourself. There’s a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, some at
the camp and others off site.


Next year’s programme will be run in April at Epworth Lodge, Karapiro from April 13th – 18th
and applications are open now for places on the programme. RYLA participants contribute
$100.00 to the club and the club pays the total fee of $850.00 ($750 from the club and $100
from the awardee). This fee covers accommodation, food (including the formal dinner)
facilitator fees where necessary, and all off site activities and buses for the week.


Enrolment forms for RYLA are available on the Rotary website. We also have compiled a
presentation to introduce you to (or remind you) what RYLA is and to encourage you to
approach young people in your community to sponsor them as next year’s RYLA awardees.
It’s available on Facebook


We’d like to see every club sponsor a RYLA awardee and give a young person in your
community the chance to take part in this leadership development programme. Many clubs
are now committing to sending two participants and some firms are finding RYLA offers
incredible personal professional development at a very reasonable cost. If you are sending
more than one applicant, please give some thought to gender balance – we’ve had twice as
many female participants as male in the last two years! We encourage you to select a
participant as a soon as possible so that they can receive timely information about the
programme. Enrolment forms and more information about RYLA are available from the


Please contact me if you require any further information,

Yours faithfully
