Kia ora fellow Rotarians,

I am certainly looking forward to longer days and warmer weather and being able to get out and about and into action with Rotary projects.

  • We will be welcomed on to the marae – we cannot move into this space prior to the welcome.
  • Please remove shoes before entering the wharenui (meeting space).
  • Switch of all mobile phones during the pōwhiri.
  • We will sing our waiata once our speaker has finished his speech on our behalf.
  • We will hongi with our elbows, as opposed to pressing noses as is the tradition.
  • Lunch/finger food will be served in the wharekai (dining hall)
  • There will be a karakia (prayer) before we start eating.
