Te Pahi - Community Bus  
Rotary Porirua gave a warm welcome to Robyn Steele, City Partnerships Manager of Porirua City Council on Wednesday evening, by presenting her a cheque for $10,000 to support Te Pahi, a free community bus services for low decile schools in Porirua.  Since it's inception in October 2016, 20 schools have used the service to travel to various destinations ranging from their local turf such as Porirua CBD, pools, and beaches, to the region such as Victoria University, galleries and museums, Jewish Community Centre, Island Bay Marine Education Centre, Weta Workshop, Parliament.
A special visit from District Gorvenor Mitch Brown and guests
It was awesome to catch up with DG Mitch Brown who talked to us about the milestones reached of District 9940 since July 2017 and what remains until change over in June 2018.  President Kath gave an awesome presentation summarising what Rotary Porirua have been up to and what remains as well.  So far, we have reached our goals but also exceeded what was expected of our club.  Well done Kath and to all the members.
We also had a few other guests on Wednesday evening.  They were Jacqueline Wilton, Manager for English Language Partners NZ of Porirua and former refugees Lorena Buitrago from Colombia and Rassem El from Syria both of whom volunteered with Xmas Wrapping 2017.  We also had Alishia joining us to check out our club.
