What We’ve Been Doing Lately
Adrien Borrie – Webmaster
Rotary Clubs from District 9970 from Nelson and Marlborough have been refurbishing the Rotoiti Outdoor Activity Centre. So far $700,000 has been spent.
On the 3rd and 4th October I joined an army of Rotarians from the Nelson and Marlborough Rotary Clubs at the Centre.
Members of Blenheim South Rotary and Partners.
My car was loaded with scrapers and sanders; however, when I arrived about 1030 I was immediately pressed by the RSM Trevor Marshall into assisting “Noel” on the spray gun equipment.
Noel turned out to be quite hyperactive and set a cracking pace. I became very competent at shifting hoses, ladders, paint pumps and pots, and sheets of masking cardboard, at Noel’s beck and call.
Don Pointon joined us later in the day and the three of us worked up to being a very efficient team.
The dormitory was two-storey and challenging.
We finished very late on Thursday night, and ate a very tasty meal well after 8 pm. Thanks to those at home who prepared it. We had a convivial evening and retired by 10 pm..
Next day broke sunny but cold. Many other activities were taking place that day as well as putting the first top coat on the building.
By Friday 4 pm I was b******d and packed up and drove the Trusty Toyota home to Sandra and a hot shower.
