Goodbye 2018
The final event of 2018 for Karori Rotarians was our Christmas function held at the Wellesley Hotel. A full turnout of guests and members made this a memorable way to end a successful year. During the evening entertainment was provided by the Harbour Capital Chorus singing a selection of Christmas carols.
In addition to bringing the year to a close several top Rotary awards were made.
The Paul Harris Fellowship (Rotary's top honour) was presented by District Govenor Marion Johnston to David and Winifred Bain, of Thorndon. The award was presented for outstanding service to the Rotary Club and to the community. David and Winifred have been strong supporters of Rotary community programmes and have provided assistance to new settler families in Karori assisting them with language needs and becoming an integral part of a large community. David has given long service to the Club as Secretary and Winifred through her skills with flowers has earned respect throughout Wellington with wonderful floral arrangements for various private and public events.
Marion made Rosemarie Ashton, of Khandallah, and Wally Simmers, now living with his wife Margot at Rita Angus in Kilbirnie Life Members of Karori Rotary.
Finally it was a great pleasure for Marion to induct Krystle Crimmins, of Karori as a new member into the club.
Hello 2019

The new year kicked off with members competing at the pitch and putt course in Karori. Individual scores will not be mentioned but a fun time was had by all.
Some of us left wondering where their shot went?
An updated list of events through to April will be published shortly. In the meantime a reminder of our next meeting at Marsden School Hall on 14/02/19 with speaker Linda Sheldon, Freedom Medical Alarms, Wellington Free Ambulance.
