Edale Rest Home is a marvelous facility where Marton Rotarians have made a real difference. They have supplied a hoist and recliner chairs for residents as well as providing garden facilities. The Board and staff are very appreciative of the continuing contribution Marton Rotarians are making.

Rotary Clubs like Marton never cease to surprise me, because when I met with the Board even more projects were raised. I can't mention them all, but they are making the most of local opportunities. For example, one of their larger fundraisers involves selling 10 litre and 20 litre buckets - to farmers, apiarists and others. The buckets are sourced as inwards goods packaging from a local food manufacturer - a local resource that would go elsewhere if Marton Rotarians had not seized the opportunity to use them to fund raise.
Marton Rotarians are connected with the wider Rotary community and know how to have a good time, so I am sure we will see many of them at the District Conference in New Plymouth in April.
