A very warm welcome to the Rotary Club of Petone - Petone is nestled on the northern shore of Wellington Harbour in New Zealand.
The Rotary Club of Petone was established in 1951 and continues to assist, contribute and lead in many projects across the community and overseas.
Enjoy your experience here and as you will see, there are numerous opportunities to be involved in working together for the benefit of all in our own and other communities. Join us at Caffiend (Jackson Street, Petone) on Tuesday nights - we meet at 5.30 for a 6.00pm start but let us know in advance so we can confirm catering numbers.
Planning has started for the 2023 Petone Fair and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone again to this great event.
Your support of this community event has both raised thousands of dollars for community works in the Petone area and also lifted the profile of this suburb and its community in the wider Wellington and Hutt Valley regions.
The 2023 Petone Fair will be held on Saturday 18th February, 2023. Online applications will be able to be made from 1 October, 2022 at www.petonefair.co.nz
New President John Prendergast has taken the reins for 2022-2023 at a recent changeover event. Big vote of thanks and appreciation to Kevin for steering us through a pretty challenging year with Covid at times impacting our ability to meet and our ability to achieve the projects we would usually been involved in (not to mention other lost opportunities that may have presented themselves.)
John has set out his plans for the coming year and we look forward to a busy, challenging and rewarding 12 months.
The Fair has been given the "green light" and planning is now underway, we are anticipating that our international projects will start to get some traction again and there will no doubt be many opportunities for us to support projects we have previously supported and several that perhaps didn't exist pre-covid. There seem to be more and more climate-related crises happening globally so support of Shelter-Box and Emergency Response kits (ERK's) will continue along with Polio-Plus.
