"Service Above Self"
An Emphasis on membership saw a net gain of five.
A second successful Book Fair involved all members and partners, raising a net $16,000. Many members volunteered to help the caterer at a Te Rapa Race Day to earn $3500 to offset hire of the Book Fair premises. Assistance at a financial seminar raised $1800. 

In its final year, Elgar Henry was congratulated on the success of Graffiti Cats. $10,000 of the funds so raised by Graffiti Cats was donated to the Club to be used for further playground equipment at Claudelands Park.

The generosity planning skills of Manjit Singh and Jiwan Dhaliwal, along with much appreciated sponsorship  by Majic Fresh and food produced by the chefs and staff of Indian Aroma, made for a fabulous daia dinner at the Indian community's Phoenix House. $5000 was raised towards the year’s major project, the provision of specialist paediatric laparoscopic surgical instruments for Waikato Hospital.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner raised some $1200.
The Club bylaws were substantially revised with special thanks to Geoff Thornton and Alan Jones.

$1600 was allocated to Rotahome Village, Fiji; and an International Youth Exchange Student was hosted. Two candidates were successful for RYLA. The Inter-Schools’ Debate produced a most instructive evening.
A Club visit was made to the Karaka Concert.
A Vocational Evening held at Wintec Avalon Campus and an International Night with a Latin-American theme was much enjoyed by members and their partners.

The Fairfield Rotary Readers programme led by Michael Timmins continued to flourish. The Children’s Christmas Party was highly successful, and the Club’s Christmas Party at Willow Glen was enjoyed by all.
Paul Harris Fellow Awards were made to honour Lorraine Bartlett, Doug Haigh and Rob Jones.
