Inkbox Packed for Political Meeting
There was a full house at the Inkbox as the three Mayoral Candidates and the council candidates made their case for election.
Global Grants 
We hear a lot about the District Grants which our local community benefit from but Global Grants are for large scale projects with huge impact internationally. 
International Development and Disaster Relief
District Governor Tania Lowery is going to Sydney to Ride the Trains as a fundraiser to help End Polio. There are 187 trains! Over $28,000 has been raised so far with more to come. 
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
Planning is underway for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards 2020. They are being held in the spectacular Queenstown so if you know of any young people who may benefit from attending please put their name forward.
Student Interviews
The latest five students from Waitaki Girl's were interviewed recently. As usual the calibre of students was impressive and Rotarians were able to pass on some knowledge on how to put the best foot forward for interviewing.
Seed Cleaning Project Crops Up
On our last club night we were fortunate to have Dr Mark Smith conduct a guided tour of the Historic Precinct. We were given access to a normally hidden part of the precinct and were surprised.
Butterfly Project About to Fly
Gordon Martin never sits still. As a knowledgeable and skilled gardener he has researched what it takes to successfully encourage Monarch butterflies to thrive and has cultivated a large number of plants to distribute.
TeenAg Student to Montana
TeenAg is the student version of the Young Farmers contest and local seventeen-year-old Tyla Bishop went on an exchange to Montana as part of the programme.
McRobie elected unopposed
Ross McRobie was elected unopposed to the Ahuriri ward of the Waitaki District Council, but he still had some points to make at Meet the Candidates.
