It was a great pleasure for me as President, along with Past Presidents Doug Langford and David Watt, on behalf of the Board and the Club to present a Certificate of Life Membership in the Rotary Club of Karori to David Stevens for his outstanding service and commitment to Rotary, at his apartment in Molesworth St on Wednesday 10 June.



David and his wife Ann, greeted us with an afternoon tea and a sharing memories in Rotary activities. David has been prevented for health reasons from continuing his active membership in the Club, but we will welcome their attendance as best they are able to future events that we put on.


David joined the Rotary Club of Karori in 1989 having been in senior management in the National Bank of New Zealand and a Rotarian in Dunedin and the Downtown Rotary Club in Auckland prior to moving to Wellington in 1989. David was made a Paul Harris Fellow by the Downtown Club in 1988. He has maintained active involvement over many projects for our Club down the years and he recently took over the chairmanship of the Charitable Trust following the passing of Rowland Woods. His knowledge, skills and experience on wider financial management issues has been invaluable to the Club over the years.
