A successful community project, Stuff the Trailer, has been held on 31 July for the Tawa Foodbank.
 
Many thanks to all for your participation in making today's Stuff the Trailer another successful community project for Rotary and our joint partners in this venture being Tawa Inner Wheel, One Agency and the Tawa Salvation Army foodbank. The day was even more blessed by the wonderful weather and no wind.
 
Sarah Opie conveyed her grateful thanks for our help in replenishment of their food bank shelves, in readiness for the 2nd half of the year, as a result of the Saturday’s effort.

Every year Tawa Rotary, with the support of the Tawa community, backs Foster Hope’s annual winter pyjama drive.

Many of the children taken into foster care have never had a brand new pair of pyjamas of their very own and knowing that someone has shopped especially for them is a huge boost to their self-esteem as some can feel a bit like second-hand kids themselves. Anything we can do as a community to help these youngsters feel loved and valued is invaluable.

This year there is a particular need for pyjamas for 12-16 year olds.

Donations can be dropped off at Tawa ITM, 36 Main Road, Tawa.

 

Thank you for your participation in this year's major community fundraiser - the Book Fair. 
 
The Book Fair has been held in the weekends 3/4 July and 10/11 July; and open during the week from 10am to 2pm.
 
Venue: Duncan Street, Tawa (former Beanstalk Kindergarten)
Tawa Rotary celebrated its 50th anniversary
Tawa Rotary celebrated its 50th anniversary over the weekend of 9 and 10 April 2021.
 
On 4 April 1970 at a dinner held at the Wellington Overseas Terminal, Rotary International presented the Charter for the new Rotary Club of Tawa to the Club’s Charter President Eldon Armstrong.
 
Fifty years later the Rotary Club of Tawa planned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that evening with a weekend of activities. Unfortunately, COVID-19 interrupted the planning. The celebration was held in April 2021.
 
Over the 51 years, Tawa Rotary has contributed to the infrastructure of Tawa through numerous projects, as well as to a wide range of youth and international initiatives and projects.
 
Paul Harris awards were awarded to Past District Governor Martin Garcia for his service to Rotary and to Dianne Patchett for her significant service to Inner Wheel, a project in Nepal and teaching. Two of the club’s Charter members, Murray Jensen and Rewi Chaney, supported by Robert Armstrong entertained with great stories of the Club at its very beginning.
 
A book on the 50-year history of the Rotary Club of Tawa has been published and copies are available for purchase at $20 each. To buy a book, please contact tawarotaryclub@gmail.com.
