This committee is taking a steering role for the celebrations of our club’s 100th birthday. While we don’t expect a telegram from the Queen; the club was the first in New Zealand so the centennial also marks 100 years of Rotary in New Zealand. If you are interested in history and/or projects, this could be the committee for you. Historically speaking, we are collecting material for some kind of 100 year publication and also plan on some historic celebrations during the club year, such as a lunch meeting as it would have been in 1921. We intend to renew connections with the many charities where our club played a vital role, for example, Plunket, CCS and Barnados.
We plan on at least one major project to mark the centenary. This project is likely to be in conjunction with the other three founding clubs (Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne) and to be providing assistance of some kind in the Pacific. So if you like international projects, or steering through the complex process of accessing Rotary Foundation money, we could use your talents.
