Welcome to District 9920 - part of Auckland and the Pacific

 
Are you a person wanting to connect with others to make positive changes in your community and the world? Rotary joins together dedicated men and women who share a passion for community service and friendship. If this sounds like you, please contact us - 0800 4 768 279 or
 
 
We are - people of action
Women have always had an influence in Rotary right from the contribution of Jean Thompson, Rotary's Founder Paul Harris's wife, who is often stated as being "the power behind the Rotary 'throne' ".
 
2019 marks 30 years since Rotary International formerly enabled women to join Rotary as Rotarians. Since then the direct contribution of women in Rotary has soared and is today pronounced.
 
Through the District Facebook page and website (in addition top the Rotary Oceania Facebook and website) over the next few months we would like to recognize the work that Rotary women throughout NZ and the Pacific do publicly and behind the scenes. This is a great opportunity to highlight women in your Clubs and Districts who have gone above and beyond the call of Service above Self. We are wanting to know those really special women and to thank them for being part of our Rotary family.
 
While we could come up with names this would be more meaningful if suggestions came from Rotarians or those involved with Rotary. Our district has so many great women doing wonderful things this should be easy - send your suggestions to Leanne Jaggs, District 9920 Publicity Committee Chair.
The best part of Christmas is when families can get together and enjoy each other's company.  Unfortunately for too many it is a time of hardship.  Recognising that some in their community were facing hardship, Papatoetoe Central Rotary worked with Rawiri Community House Manukau to identify fifty needy families to whom they could provide a food hamper each and the presentation is depicted here (note the reusable shopping bags with the Rotary emblem on).
Ellerslie Rotary changed up their entry into the Ellerslie Santa Parade a bit this year - everyone wore Rotary Super-Hero T-shirts with the theme that Rotarians are super-heroes too - and aren't we all! Their involvement in their local community is seen front and centre and that's very important, especially for super-heroes!

The Fiji Oxygen Project – No child should die for a lack of oxygen.

Yet too many do die from otherwise treatable illnesses because of variable access to good quality oxygen in Fiji. The Rotary Club of Remuera Inc, working in partnership with other charities and trusts, is working to raise $650,000 in order to provide reliable oxygen supplies to Health Clinics throughout Fiji. This is a project worthy of wide support and I fully endorse it and would like to see it come to fruition as soon as possible. I would appreciate Rotarians giving their full support to this project.

The Fiji Oxygen Project is designed to save the lives of children, in hospitals and clinics, who are currently dying due to the lack of a reliable supply of oxygen ...

Rotary clubs and their members are deservedly proud of the projects they held during a Rotary year that have achieved so much.  The stories of these individual projects describe the depth of activity and the benefits achieved but there is interest in the full picture to show the scale of all these individual projects together. Often, these are expressed as funds distributed.  Other measures are volunteer hours and Donations in Kind and outcomes.  How is your club showing the community, and members, what was achieved?  Pictorially such as here?  In the club bulletin and as advertisments in the local community newspaper?  Telling this particular story acknowledges the contributions of members, sponsors and supporters and builds the club social creds that will in turn bring in additional support. The excellent example below is from Papakura Rotary.
