In the past we have supported club funds by purchasing the Entertainment Book containing coupons for use at a large variety of restaurants and food outlets.
The book is no longer produced but is now available as an electronic app. It’s scope has also broadened to include shopping and travel discounts. The club gets 20% of the purchase price for each membership bought. Buying a membership supports our club.

Papanui Rotary Ladies Brunch
from Deryn
A group of fourteen women associated with Papanui Rotary, made up of members, wives, widows and friends, had a lovely time at our first official brunch, last Saturday morning.
It was a lovely mix of ladies, including some new to Papanui Rotary, some who have been involved for a very long time, and those in between. The food was enjoyed by all, as was the chatter.
We plan to do this on a regular basis, with the next brunch to be arranged in August. If you know of someone who would be interested but did not get an email this time round, please let Deryn or Cynthia know.
