Ready for the sum­mer time!

Rotorua Weekender - - News - Shauni James Shauni

Hi ev­ery­one. I hope you have all had a great week and are look­ing for­ward to the week­end.

Day­light sav­ing starts on Sun­day and I’m su­per ex­cited to have the long sun­light hours again. I al­ways feel like I have more pro­duc­tive days for some rea­son — are you the same?

Well, it’s that time again where school is out for a cou­ple of weeks and many par­ents need to find ways to keep their young ones en­ter­tained.

Luck­ily for lo­cal par­ents, Ro­torua has plenty on of­fer.

There are some awe­some events on at the Ro­torua Li­brary, in­clud­ing a rain­bow dance party (sounds like my kind of party!), learn­ing about an­i­mal wel­fare and a lot of craft ac­tiv­i­ties.

There are many other ac­tiv­i­ties on around town to suit all sorts of hob­bies and in­ter­ests.

What will you and your chil­dren get up to these school hol­i­days?

This week I also vis­ited Ha­mu­rana Play­cen­tre and found out more about its an­nual Spring Fair and Grand Auc­tion, which is on this week­end.

It is such an awe­some play­cen­tre and the chil­dren were hav­ing a blast when I vis­ited on Mon­day morn­ing.

So, let’s all head along and help sup­port the cen­tre, as this event is its one ma­jor fundraiser each year.

An­other great fundraiser which is com­ing up is the Mitre 10 Mega Ladies Night.

This is such an awe­some event with a lot to check out, not to men­tion the fact that it is rais­ing money for Ro­torua Com­mu­nity Hospice.

To find out what cool things are on of­fer at this year’s event check out the story on page 5.

Tick­ets are on sale now so make sure you get in quick to se­cure a place.

There are plenty of other things for you to check out in this is­sue so I’ll let you get read­ing.

Don’t for­get to keep those reader’s pho­tos and thumbs ups and downs rolling in so we can share what is hap­pen­ing in the com­mu­nity.

Take care, un­til next time.
