Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside

Being a Rotarian is a challenging, stimulating and rewarding experience.

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside has been supporting the Bishopdale Burnside and Greater Christchurch community for over 40 years with a number of projects and fundraising events.

We welcome enquiries from interested persons who wish to learn more about Rotary.

We also welcome visiting Rotarians to our meetings.

Members gathered for fellowship at our venue which is the Papanui Returned Services Association rooms at about 5.30 pm each Monday for a 6 pm meal.

After a dinner a short business section commences at 6.30 pm which is generally followed by a speaker who addresses the club on a topic of interest to Rotary.

Meetings generally finish at 7.30 pm.

In an previous post we have mentioned our Rotary Associates Programme run in conjunction with the University of Canterbury.

Tonight, three of them were presented with their certificates to recognise their involvement in community service.

They have contributed to a number of our Club Projects - such as Artarama, Street appeals, and City Mission.

They were presented with their certificates by Club Youth Chair Matt Ellery and Tony Blackler who has been co-ordinating the Associate Programme.

Guest speaker, was Eden Skipper, a former Associate and Rotary Youth Leadership (RYLA) participant who spoke of his participation at the RYLA North America Conference in Washington DC.

Thanks to our Sponsors for your support in providing the prizes and also donating items to our auction on the Gala Opening.

Of course a special thanks to our members, friends and families who have volunteered their time to enable the smooth running of this event.

They have helped out with a variety of tasks such as arranging sponsorship, artist liaison, advertising, signs placement, setting up, operating the sales and cashier desks, assisting and of course the inevitable dismantling and clean up.
