A historic evening for both the Rotary  and the Rotorua Multicultural Council as Rotorua North welcomed the Council a Not-For-Profit member of the Club.   
On Wednesday 27 February Rotary has gained a new and enthusiastic member and the Multicultural Council and its members gained the opportunity to make new connections and opportunities for volunteering.
The room had a wonderful buzz with the promise of a great relationship. As our 'guest speaker' five members of the Rotorua Multicultural Council spoke for five minutes each about the journey that brought them to their current position in Rotorua before being officially welcomed to Rotary Rotorua North.
