Speaker of the Evening
 
Stephen Geard is Rotary Club of Balclutha's newest member and he told some great stories of his background and life so far!
Steve grew up at Wainui Beach just east of Gisborne and spent a lot of time on the beach and playing rugby. After finishing up at school he started studying management at Waikato University before getting a job with the Arthur Yates Company which from his description sounded like it had a great social club! Later, Steve began work in the meat packaging industry and then with a trading company, jobs with which he travelled internationally. When he was tired of the frequent trips away from home, Steve bought a small print business and moved to Pukekohe.
After their children moved south, Steve and his wife Jenny followed a couple of months ago so most of the family is around Clutha and Steve is now spending his days feeding calves. Welcome to Clutha and to our Rotary club, Steve!

On Saturday, David, Fergus, Kevin, Peter V and Rebecca took the picnic tables to the Fishing Camp off The Nuggets Road and cemented them in to the grass off the beach. It was a gorgeous sunny day and after a bit of work we got to enjoy a break on one of the nice level tables! Thanks Gabrielle for bringing morning tea :-)
