Book Sale in Southbrook – Now On!

16 July 2010

The Rangiora Rotary Club’s booksale is now on at the Southbrook Sports Club pavilion at Southbook Park.  It started Thursday morning with customary scrum of the quick and the keen – the photo at the right shows the scene when it had settled down!

There are still thousands of books left.  The sale finishes Saturday noon (17 July).

All proceeds go towards the Rangiora Rotary Club’s $30,000 commitment to the Dudley Aquatic Centre.


Probus Milestone

6 June 2010

Last week, Marilyn and I went to the 15th Anniversary of the Rangiora Combined Probus Club.  We went wearing our Rotary hats because all Probus Clubs are “sponsored” by Rotary clubs. There are a dozen or so Probus Clubs in North Canterbury, all sponsored by either the Kaiapoi or Rangiora Rotary Clubs.  There are five in Rangiora alone, with others in Kaiapoi, Woodend, Amberley, Cheviot and Hanmer Springs.

Probus provides a vehicle for retired people to get together, enjoy each other’s company and hear stimulating speakers.  They are an important part of our community.
