Hutt River Valley Rotary - a vibrant Club serving their community

Hutt River Valley Rotary have a number of interesting and fun-filled events on their immediate calendar.  Soon they will be holding a World's Greatest Meal event to coincide with Diwali. In November they will be holding a purple polio fundraising evening and on another date a Red Nose evening.

Recently they visited the Learning Connexion and created a vibrant painting (at left) that they will auction or raffle to raise funds.

By creating an environment in which members have a lot of fun while raising funds and working on community projects they ensure members remain engaged.

Denise and I had a very enjoyable evening with Hutt River Valley Rotarians.  I even caught up with someone I worked with 41 years ago when I first came to Wellington.

Hutt River Valley Rotary have a wide age range with many of the younger ones taking on leadership roles in the Club, which is a very good model for succession planning.

They have a keen interest in supporting youth and one example of this is the 320 dictionaries they are providing to schools in the Hutt Valley, Wainuiomata and wider afield.

As well as their community service and support of overseas initiatives, they are traditionally strong supporters of The Rotary Foundation.  Keep up the great work Hutt River Valley Rotary while having interesting and fun times.
