South Kaipara Rotary Satellite Club

The South Kaipara Satellite Club was formed in February 2016 and is the second of Henderson Rotary’s Satellite Clubs.

img_3076-1A Satellite Club is effectively a club within a club. In this case South Kaipara Rotary fills what Henderson Rotary perceived as a geographical gap where no Rotary Club existed between Kumeu and Silverdale. The area is growing in population and this presented an opportunity to use the Satellite Club structure to establish Rotary in the area.

Members of South Kaipara Satellite Club are still members of Henderson Rotary but they meet at a different time, frequency and venue from the main Henderson Club and also have a less formal and shorter meeting.

So far South Kaipara have worked on a number of fundraisers to build up their funds to spend on Charitable projects. The fundraisers have included picking and selling organic Nashi Pears, doing a stocktake at the Parakai 4 Square and bagging Kanukas ready for sale, clearing a community parking lot and planting trees.

We have funded picnic tables for Te Whare Oranga o Parakai, established a thriving orchard at Parakai School, donated dictionaries through the Dictionaries for Schools program, helped with numerous working bees and we are in the process of helping to fundraise for a new playground for the Kaukapakapa community.
