The club charity book fair was held from 1st to 4th of June, over Queen's Birthday weekend. We had for sale approximately 60,000 pre-loved books, CD's, DVD's records and jigsaws. By the end of Sunday we had raised approximately $45,000 gross for local community projects, youth activities and overseas disaster aid. The weather came to the party and was mostly fine and sunny for the duration of the Book Fair. If you missed this year book fair, look out for it again next year.

Reviewing your retirement options? Download the full story here
I saw an article about nursing and retirement homes and the expenses. Then it hit me!! No nursing home for me!! Here is my plan: I’m checking into the Holiday Inn.
 
With the average cost for a nursing home approaching $188 per day, there is a better way when we get old and feeble.
 
I have already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn. For a combined long-term stay discount and senior non-active Rotarian discount, it’s $49.23 per night.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Surprising who turns up at the book fair. Not surprising that the treasurer was keen to take his money. The filming featured children from Fairfield Primary School. This character’s show is on TV Four.
When you read the blurb from the channel’s website, it confirms that the pronunciation of his name should be “Moy” – from Moehau.
Last Monday evening the club paid a visit to the Rescue Helicopter base at Waikato Hospital. The rescue service is provided by the Philips Search & Rescue Trust, which has helicopters based in Tauranga, Rotorua, Taupo, Palmerston North and Hamilton. The Trust also operates two fixed wing aircraft out of Hamilton airport, which are used to provided aero-medical services nation-wide. They are equipped with the latest available medical equipment  The Trust relies on community support to raise 50% of their annual operating costs.
 
 
On Monday 29th February the Club paid a visit to the Waikato Museum to see the Leonardo da Vinci Mechanics exhibition.
 
This exhibition is on loan from the museum of Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy, this amazing exhibition brings together creations and concepts devised more than 500 years ago by the brilliant scientist, inventor and artist Leonardo da Vinci.
