20210724 Tree planting  with Ellerslie Sunrise Rotary Club

Tree planting
It was such a lovely day in Waiatarua Reserve, Auckland New Zealand today. It is the 4th year that our club has joined the Rotary Club of Ellerslie Sunrise for tree planting in this park. We saw the trees that we had planted in previous years having now grown much taller with lots of birds flying around them. It was amazing to see. We truly appreciate what the volunteers have achieved over these years. You can watch the video attached to see how much we have enjoyed and appreciated being part of this volunteering. Thank you to the Rotary club of Ellerslie Sunrise for organising this event.

PE Madison 的感想

今天清晨我在扶輪HalfMoonBay Club獲邀擔任Speaker,晚上換個角色假扶輪Harbourside Club的例會聆聽 演講人Peter Parussini 的新書作品及創作的心路歷程。
義大利與中國廣東混血的Peter, 自1980年代起以國會記者出身展露頭角,與時任總理的MikeMoore長期私交甚篤,Mike擔任紐西蘭總理的任期雖然並不長,但他隨後擔任WTO的秘書長,是Kiwi在世界舞台上少有的光榮。
 
Peter近日的著作”Believer”, 是以他做為MikeMoore的好友視角寫成的一本回憶錄,歷時前後6個月,長達10萬字。在NZ的暢銷書榜上維持了三週的Top10,Peter以他新聞記者的筆觸,對NZ當時的政壇環境的洞察,以及作為Mike長期好友的知根知底,Peter強調這本回憶錄並非從Mike本人的觀點出發,而是以他的角度側記Mike而成,作品接近完成時,Mike已因之前的中風導致左半身癱瘓健康惡化,在作品正式出版6天後不幸過世,雖然感到遺憾,但以文字將自己努力拼搏的一生記錄留在世上,也不能不說是一種福氣。
 
演講現場提問踴躍,所以我選擇會後請教:綜觀Mike的生涯,你身為作者覺得他的“光輝時刻”與“至暗時刻”各是什麼?Peter不假思索地說:他的“光輝時刻”是在WTO秘書長任內,終於完成了讓中國正式成為WTO會員的任務;而所谓“至暗時刻”,則是在工黨黨內初選時失意於HelenClark。
在Peter的筆下,MikeMoore是幼年失怙,少年失學,在圖書館苦讀忘卻對擁有完整家庭的渴望,終於靠一己的奮鬥,成為最年輕的商會領袖而進軍國會,開啓自己的人生。 他的奮鬥之路讓我想到晏子春秋中的“為者常成,行者常至”。我想,用中文表述的話,或許這是恰當的總結吧。

It’s hard to believe time has gone by so fast and that this Rotary year is coming to the end. on Sunday 30th July, Immediate Past President Janet voiced how it has been a privilege and where she has been inspired. "A big thank you to the committee and all club members for their generous time and financial contributions towards Rotary services and projects we have worked on together." Janet recently come back from attending Rotary International Convention for the first time in Hamburg, Germany and shared one thing that deeply touched her. By attending such a grand scale international event and being surrounded by more than 20,000 like-minded enthusiastic Rotarians, it helped to redefine your goals and values. 

From "be the Inspiration", we move forwards to continue our good work under President Walter's leadership to "connect Rotary to the world".

Our honour from District Conference in Napier

Posted on May 14, 2019

It started from a comprehensive "Review and Preview" to further understand the RI vision, strategies, directions through status of our District, as well as retrieving what D9920 has collaborated and accomplished at many aspects. The colourful Napier embraced Rotarians not only an amazing conference but also local cultural varieties with many unexpectedness.
 
One of the biggest unexpectedness was undoubtedly the award of Club Project Excellence to honour our Club! The Shooting for Oxygen is marked an experience-design innovation to engage the empathy for a great cause, which lasted for 6 months with a number of signature moments to work with cluster clubs and more. The cohesion throughout club members has been booming even if we were not certain about the performance outcome in the beginning, and now it turned to a glory of being recognised and further motivates our club to contribute for next year.

A book title of "Reading the Riot Act" summarising 200 years history of Justice of the Peace in New Zealand, presented the cultural and social changes which has been always demanding the service value of JP to cope with; therefore becoming a Justice of Peace is never easy with high entry barrier through rounds of assessment but also a continuous learning to reflecting the diversified cultural needs to better serve the public.

AG Gabby visited RC Auckland South with PDG Willard. They joined the post-event review of Cultural and Charity Night hosted by President Janet, as well as being presented by Secretary Madison about his outtakes from departed RLI training, then the visionary views by PE Walter for his incoming presidential stint. 
 
Some important directions were given by AG Gabby about new vision for Rotary with new theme of "Rotary Connects the World" to accentuate the connectivity and dedication. "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change - across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves." We were encouraged by AG Gabby to be active members and involve ourselves in projects and just by doing what we think may seem to be ordinary Rotary activities, we are the source of inspiration and have impacts far greater than we might ever imagine.
 
Meanwhile Frances Lee from Malaysia came to courtesy our club as an observer. He used to be a Rotarian club member in Kuala Lumper for 3 years and now relocates to New Zealand with family. We hope a new member opportunity for him to further enrich our culturally diversified positioning.

Rotary Club of Auckland South volunteered the DUAL iron man Marathon in Motutapu, an island of conservation area opened for only 2 days every year. The beauty of volunteering was not just serving the players in different off-road running routes but simply an enjoyment from its various landscapes across the island, as well as fellowship and friendship. Volunteers needed to take ferry off at dawn time and returned to the wharf around sunset, undoubtedly being exhaustive, but it apparently was an exceptional experience for every participant there.
