Guest Speaker

 

Theresa Liebenberg who is the community fundraiser & liaison for major donors for the Blind Foundation.  Theresa gave a very interesting talk on guide dogs and pointed out that this section of the Blind Foundation is not government funded and is reliant on donations and fundraising by groups such as Rotary.  

President Trish presented her with a cheque for the $,1600 raised at the Country Kitchen.  In thanking the club for this Theresa expressed her personal thanks for the friendliness shown to her by club members and were it not for the fact she lives in Orewa we may have signed up a new member !

Thought of the Day


Robyn   Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.  Commonly, but incorrectly, attributed to Winston Churchill.
