Greetings from Martha
Martha did another makeup.  This time at the Christchurch South Club.  They have 52 members and are lots of fun, like our club.  They are also in District 9970.  Because of declining numbers of Rotarians, the entire South Island will become one Rotary district soon.  This club is really vibrant, with many younger members.  The president-elect is in his late 20's.  They had an inspiring speaker, lots of funny stories and fun trivia.  They sold raffle tickets and the prizes were pieces of meat from the grocery store.
