Soapbox

Tonight’s soap by Richard Hodges was a reflection on ANZAC Day and all it means in that with all the wars there have been, “is it any better” was the question left with us all with respect to today’s global issues


Guest Speaker

Tonight’s guest was Ram Adhar Kapar, a Nepalese gentleman who came along as a follow up to Barrie Smith’s presentation earlier this year. Ram gave us an audio visual presentation on the aims and work of the Rural Community Development in Nepal and explained its many functions and goals which been recently increased many fold with the earthquake and the aftermath. Barrie hopes to visit Nepal later in the year with a pledge from the Rotary Clubs in Taranaki that we can help in some way.
