Last Week's Meeting 
Our guest speaker was Barbara McKerrow -  CEO of the Wellington City Council
Barbara gave us a very good update on the challenges and issues facing the Council.
They currently provide 400 services and employ 1800 staff.
The update was very informative and professional, I am sure everybody at the meeting would have learnt something new.
I personally found the update excellent and came away much better informed of all the work that is being done to prepare the city for the future.

Raffle Update from Gaylene
Greetings Tawa Rotary Club members
I have now been given the amount the Rotary Club Raffle made on the selling of the raffle we held recently.
Total Amount $4,579.70
There were no other costs involved as all prizes were donated.
For that we thank, Whittakers, Mitre10, Bunnings, Twigland, Thyme Cafe, The
Warehouse, TOA (ITM), and last but by no means least
our own Lyn Calman from Ray White Real Estate to whom we owe the printing of our tickets.
Without all of these generous people the raffle would not have been possible.
Thank you to all the Rotarians who participated in either purchasing or
selling of the raffle tickets for us to have made this amount of money for the Youth in our area.
Thank you

Pride in Work Awards 2021
Pride in Work Awards 2021
Tawa Rotary will soon be inviting nominations for a Pride in Work Award from Tawa employers who have outstanding performers in their employment.
This is the 2nd year that the Awards have been available for nominations in this format. In earlier years the Club held Pride in Workmanship Awards but after a number of years not being held it was reintroduced as Pride in Work Award by Don Rushworth in 2019.
After the Book Fair, the Club will start to promote the Awards with employers and the community. Nominations will close on 20 September and Awards will be presented at a dinner on Tuesday 19th October.
The Committee of Judith Gray and Pat Waite would welcome volunteers to help both distribute information around employers and also in the planning of the Award evening.
cheers Pat
