Mitre 10 Mega BBQ
The next Papanui Mitre 10 Mega BBQ is on Saturday 24 April and we need some volunteers to help out.  Note it is on Saturday again this time.
The profits will be specifically for the Papanui High School Kimi Ora Camp, a great activity for Special Needs children at the school.  We have four rosters as follows:
  • 8:15am to 9:00am: Gary and Cheryl setting up.
  • 9:00am to 11:00am: Gary and Cheryl Denhard need 2 more helpers.
  • 11:00am to 1:00pm: 4 helpers required.
  • 1:00pm to 3:00pm: Euan Hilson 3 more helpers required.
  • 3:00pm to 4:30pm: Gary Denhard 2 more helpers required (the last shift does the clean-up so we are all done by 4:30pm).
I trust you will support this fundraiser once again. We will have a sign up saying it is for Kimi Ora and we will also make sure Papanui High School are aware of this.
Unless Mitre 10 Mega has a cancellation and asks us to step in I won't organise any more BBQs until Spring time.
Check out this year’s offer and fundraising benefits here.

Dear Lois and the rest of the amazing Papanui Rotary,
Thank you so much for all your support on Saturday 10th April.
We really enjoyed having you with us on the day with your positive energy and helping to run the tea & coffee and the BBQ. It made a real difference to have you all on board. Hope you like the photo.
While this year was quieter will still managed to raise just over $800! This will go towards resources for the children here.
Many thanks once again:
