Consumed, or whether there was "stock" left over for the next event ?. Good result ! MCKENZIE TRUST DISTRIBUTION Ian C has received a cheque for $4,828 and a list of the Families involved.

DONATION FROM CLUB TO JONI AKER : Facebook’s Rutherford Club Site has a message and Pic from Joni Akers who is a Volunteer worker in Cambodia. Refer back to Bulletin 9 of 10th Sept 2012, reporting on Joni’s address to this Club about her work overseas, in the backblocks 15kms from Ankor Wat in Cambodia. We presented Joni with a cheque for $200, and she has made the money go a long way for the school she is helping at. Joni reports now that the money has paid for a large hanging blind in the open classroom, which shields the children from the blinding heat of the sun, and from the rainy season rain storms that can otherwise saturate the classroom in teaching sessions. Also she has been able to pay for larger bamboo desks in the classroom. A few NZ dollars can go a long way !
