The Diwali fundraiser dinner was full house at the Whitby Taj. The sumptuous buffet curry dinner, bingo game and prize giveaways raised funds for Rotary's international 'End Polio' campaign.  President Paula Williams thanked the community members and the Club for supporting 'End Polio' fundraiser.  She said that the statistics are worrying, and that we are proud to be contributing towards the purchase of the vaccines. The colourful deco at the Whitby Taj made the evening a rather fun night.  Rotarians dressed in their traditional Indian garments and joined in the spirit of Diwali.  Mayor Mike Tana was there to join in the celebrations of  the Diwali event, and he looked very smart in his outfit.  He said that the Council will be working closely with Porirua Rotary to plan next year's festival.
