The Rotary Club of Kawerau was pleased to welcome Araceli into membership at their Christmas night.
Araceli is originally from the Philippines and has been living in Kawerau for 35 years with her husband and son.
Araceli has a long work history as a Migrant Interpreter for a Finance Company. She is still working but her husband has now retired. Araceli has always been a hard-working community person and has been involved in areas such as the Kawerau Community Board.
She is also very active in tramping, bush walking and harriers.
She has wanted to join Rotary for some time and meeting up with President Lynette at the Covid Jabs Project provided a golden opportunity to discuss it with her and she is very excited to have this chance to continue working for our community.
