Looking for ideas for Polio day???? Look no further

Polio Day 24th Oct - if you are looking for a great project that is easy to get involved in, look no further. The Rotary Club of Otahuhu, D9920 did such a great job last year, they are doing it again & that is involving their local primary school.

They have a letter that is easily used to send out to your local schools. All you need to do is add all your details, the rest is done for you, so if you are interested, please get in touch with your District PR Chair who has all the details.

Providing membership options to people with an affinity for the South Pacific

Rotary eClub South Pacific (proposed) - eSP will provide people who are unable to attend a traditional Rotary Club in person (due to location, time or other constraints) to have the opportunity to enjoy Rotary, be involved in service activities and belong to a club via the internet.
The intention is that eSP will focus on projects across the whole of the geographical area of District 9920 (Auckland and 7 Pacific Island nations being American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji Islands, French Polynesia, Kiribati, Samoa and Tonga) and particularly in areas where members are physically located but where traditional Rotary clubs are not nearby or are not suitable for a person's circumstances. Therefore membership is also an option for people with an specific affinity with the South Pacific region, including probably people who have emigrated to New Zealand from the Pacific Islands and wish to contribute back into the area.
More information is at

Please share this Post with all on your Facebook and get the word out ... this is an option that will suit many and the very best time to join will be as a Charter member!!
