The trench was popular. The multimillion dollar construction of an underpass in Wellington had thousands of curious people come to have a look. And with a Rotarian having a vocational contact with the project, there was an opportunity to profile Rotary to the public. At the same time a gold coin collection raised over $6,000 for the support of those suffering in the Philippines.
Little blue stickers were distributed saying 'Thank you Rotary' and proved popular with the young ones. A great day that hit the national news.
Well done Karori Rotarians.
