Karori Rotary - generous in many ways

President John Barton receives Centurion Club recognition for the Rotary Club of Karori. 
Karori Rotary, with the support of Wellington North Rotary, sponsored the new Kaukau Rotary Club. It takes a Club that places Service above Self at the Club level to establish another Club rather than to just focus on building its own membership.  The really pleasing outcome is that both Karori and Kaukau Rotary have had significant increases in membership numbers since 1 July.

PDG David Watt - from Tawa Rotary originally. 
Karori Rotary is also one of only 17 Centurion Clubs in our District - those Clubs who last year gave an average of NZ$100 or more per Club member to the Annual Programmes Fund of the Rotary Foundation.

Karori Rotary partners with other Clubs on projects as well.  A recent example that I reported on in our District Facebook page is the commercial garden in Samoa in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Wellington.  Karori Rotary has also teamed up with the ANZ Bank to hold breakfasts in Karori with high profile speakers.  For example, I recall attending one breakfast where Finance Minister Bill English spoke.

Just one of their many projects I would like to highlight is the work they have done with Zealandia and other Wellington Rotary Clubs to establish the Outdoor Education Centre which will carry the Rotary brand.
