“I am a Rotarian because I had the great good fortune to invited to join the Rotary Club of Auckland East (D-292) in 1970. I had little knowledge of what Rotary was, but very quickly learned the meaning of Rotary’s Fellowship and just how unique it is. I soon found that being involved with others in Service projects is both satisfying, and sometimes humbling.

Rotary has become a way of life. Rotary has given me precious friendships with people of similar attitudes from all over the world that I should have been the poorer for not having their friendship.”
