Each year The North Harbour Club supports young achievers through the AIMES Awards. The North Harbour Club has, as part of its Mission Statement, the desire to provide scholarship grants each year to deserving young people of the North Harbour region.
These Awards are presented to young people of the North Harbour Region, up to and including the age of 25, who have achieved excellence in the categories of the Arts; IT, Innovation & Science; Music; Education; Sport and Service to the Community (Hence - AIMES). In 2005, a 'Rising Stars' category was also introduced, which is now called the Emerging Talent Award.
In 2007, one of our regular customers, Rob Tucker, won the Emerging Talent Award, and this year The Earlybirds took the honour. Lead guitarist, Mike Cannon, is our neighbor. It's a pleasure listening to him warm up playing Smoke on the Water. Last week they made their second video, I Killed The D.J. (below) and my daughter and some of her friends were dancers in the video.
Congratulations to The Earlybirds!
