Vale Jim Dine PH:

Foundation member:1959-2018

Jim died 17th April 2018. He died in-service. He was enormously proud of the fact he had been inducted as a Foundation Member of the Rotary Club of Taradale on the 6th June 1959 and remained a member until the day he died following a very short illness. With his passing there are no longer any Foundation members still alive.

Except for his schooling years at Nelson College, Jim spent nearly all his life in the Taradale district. During this time, he has devoted much of his time promoting his trade through membership of the HB Electrical Apprenticeship committee, the HB Branch of the Electrical Contractors Association and as a member of the Electric Institute of NZ.

He was married to Audrey, who died in 2009. They are survived by their family, Pamela, Andrew and Bruce

As member of the Taradale Rotary Club he has been totally unselfish in his service to the Club. For the duration the 33 years of the Auction & Charity Fair, he spent many hours repairing and testing electrical goods. In 1973 he helped with the installation of the waterwheel in Taradale Park, particularly its lighting.

He was on the building committee of the Atawhai Flats in 1984 where he was responsible for the installation of electrical wiring,

He took a keen interest in the traditions of the Club and when the Mason Cup (symbol of Club relations with St. Joseph Maori Girls’ College) went missing, he organised its replacement. He also spoke more than once, to the Club about the history of the Sergeant’s Chain.

Jim never sought higher offices in Rotary but served as a Director during Fred Yeo’s year, 1962-63. During this time he helped in acquiring a mayoral chain for the Taradale Borough. This chain is now incorporated into the Napier Mayoral chain.  He was a director again during Bill Beaton’s year, 1984-84, the period in which the Atawhai flats were built.

In 1999 Jim was made a Paul Harris Fellow for services to the Club and Community.

As he grew older he sought ways he could help and was instrumental in setting up a “Good Morning Group”, for recently retired Club members. This group would meet monthly for the purpose of good companionship. He organised this group as Chairman, issuing minutes, and meeting recorder. He did this while remaining a full Club member, until the week he died.

Jim traveled to spend time with family and twice recently visited Australia. On a visit in 2014 he took the opportunity to attend the Rotary International Conference in Sydney

A keen walker, he often walked many kilometers daily and entered a number of sponsored events.

As he developed a fondness for photography, he volunteered to be Club photographer, and for the last 10 years he was on the Bulletin reporting team. With the help of his pictures, the Bulletin developed a tabloid style which helped it twice win the “Best Bulletin” in D9930.

Jim was an icon of Taradale Rotary and will be sadly missed by all members of the Club who all join together in extending their condolences to Jim’s family.
