Emily with her guest Audrey at the very popular Rotary Seniors’ Christmas Party which is held annually.

I moved with my husband about 7 years ago to make New Zealand our new home. Meeting new people and becoming involved with the community was a priority. For a couple of years I belonged to the Auckland City Rotary Club. Membership was scattered across the city so I decided to join a Rotary club where I lived. I attended a couple of meetings with interesting speakers and a lot of positive energy. More importantly I was made very welcome by the members and I was “hooked”. Now I have a new community of friends in the community in which I live.
