Leaving Paekakariki
 
 
Ride for Polio
 
“Please remain on the train!” The main job for the train controller was ensuring all his 360 passengers plus crew arrived safely to Taihape and returned home. This he did, thanks to volunteers from Steam Incorporated and Chris Tchernegovski, the End Polio chair of Rotary. In 3 coaches were 110 Rotarians, happy to support the elimination of polio in the world. 
 
The occasion was the Rotary Explorer heritage train hauled by steam locomotive Ja1271, beautifully restored and operated by Steam Incorporated in Paekakariki. It was fuelled by good West Coast coal and watered from fire hydrants at Palmerston North. Along the route were many families enjoying the unusual sight and sound of a steam train.
 
 
RCW was delighted to be able to donate over $2000 to the New Zealand Portrait Gallery following a very successful fundraising event at the Gallery in August.   Coinciding with the "Tribute to Avenal McKinnon" exhibition, members, their friends and Friends of the Gallery gathered to hear the back story of the paintings (all drawn from Avenal's personal collection).  We were welcomed by John McKinnon then his son Alexander spoke about the collection, making clear the passion for the individual pieces shared by him and his mother.   A worthy tribute evening and a fun way to support the Gallery she cared so much for in her time as Director.
