Spirits were high as we enjoyed getting in a Christmas mood with the Harbour Capital Chorus.

At our Christmas function on 4 December Anthony Currington, musical director, led the Chorus through a good half hour of lovely music, songs developed through the year together with all their favourite Christmas Carols. The Chorus included Club member Richard Oldham and Doug Langford who has recently left the Chorus joined in with the carol singing. It was a great occasion and enjoyment for the Chorus which has lost many opporunities during the year to perform due to Covid restrictions.
Doug Langford later received his Five Sapphire Paul Harris Fellowship award from President Graeme on behalf of the board for his long and loyal service to Rotary extending over 39 years from 1982 when Doug became a charter member of the Club. His citation touched on many achievements over that time, offices held, various awards, helping the establishment of Probus Clubs in the City, the development of the Marsden Club and Chelsea Club for dementia patients and his long commitment to the financial management of the Club and Charitable Trust.

President Graeme who held office from June to December handed over the baton to a fellow Past President, David Watt, who will steer through the first six months of 2022, a period which will also include the 40th anniversary for the Rotary of Karori  in May 2022.
