Recent News

Wynne Gray was introduced by Cindy Bakewell. “He’s been involved in journalism since the 1970s, initially at the ‘Auckland Star’ and ‘8 O’Clock’ newspapers as a sports’ writer. He later spent time working for ‘The Sun’ and then the ‘NZ Herald’ -where he spent 30 years as senior rugby writer. During that time Wynne attended 250 Test matches and wrote several books. He is now a Life-member of the ‘NZ Sports’ Writers Association’”.


Wynn believes the early season matches with Tonga and Fiji are valuable as they clearly show coaches where improvements must be made before sterner opposition is encountered. He acknowledged that the All Blacks have ‘stacks’ of talent, are very athletic and very fit – but wondered if they’d be up to the challenges of the ‘Boks’ and Northern Hemisphere teams later in the year.

830 trees were planted at the Property of Matt Hoye, Ararimu Road, Ramarama.  This project is sponsored by our Club. Seedlings are pricked out, and nurtured and grown over a two year period at Dilworth School’s Junior Campus. Then the metre high seedlings, mainly Coprosma, Manuka, Flax and Toi Toi, are planted out at areas needing reafforestation to prevent erosion and for the re-establishment of native bush. This is the 4th planting out at the lifestyle property of Matt Hoye at Ararimu – previous plantings being May or June of 2018, 2019 and 2020 which is marvellous and the children can see the results of their previous efforts.

Friendship Trees: Paul Harris’ Lasting Symbol of Goodwill
 
As Rotary’s president emeritus, Paul Harris travelled extensively during the 1920s and 1930s, often accompanied by his wife, Jean. During these trips, the nature-loving Harris planted trees to symbolize goodwill and friendship. 
 
In the fall of 1932, Harris embarked on a five-week tour of European Rotary clubs and planted trees along the way. 
“Wednesday forenoon I planted my first tree of friendship in European soil. It seemed to me especially appropriate that it took place in Germany — in its metropolis — Berlin. The planting occurred in a sports platz formerly devoted to war purposes, and a large number including Rotarians, city officials, and others were in attendance.” 
 
Ever since, Rotarians have planted trees in the name of fellowship, friendship, and community service. These trees, which can be found worldwide, have grown into enduring monuments of Rotary’s ideals.
