Tuesday night is our Quiz Night, this has been planned for a good while and postponed due to COVID restrictions.  Inner Wheel got their Quiz Night in last week and did very well, a lot of fun.  I hope ours does as well and is very bit as much fun.
Our Book Fair starts Saturday and will run for the next 3 weekends, this is one of our big fund raisers this year, so we all need to get in behind and support Pat and his team.
Our program is also filling up with a lot scheduled between now and the end of the year, there will be something for everybody.
Let us do Rotary together.

Last Weeks Meeting 29 September 2020
Was our Book Fair working bee, a good number turned up and all the books that can be put into trays were stuffed into every corner.  There are still lots of books in boxes and more coming in so I don’t think we will be running out any time soon.  Tuesday night went quickly and the Pizzas and Fish and Chips were devoured with relish.  Thanks to all and see you there Saturday.
Tuesday went so quickly I didn't get any photos of the activity so I have used one from a week back when the books first arrived.
Probus announces International Day of Older Persons as Probus Day
Probus is all about FRIENDSHIP, FELLOWSHIP and FUN in retirement.
1 October 2020 was the inaugural annual celebration of Probus Day with an inaugural Probus Day theme all about Staying Connected.  This day is all about celebrating Probus, while connecting with retirees and semi retirees and inviting them to find out more about Probus.
Established in New Zealand in 1974, Probus is a not-for-profit organisation with over 14,000 members. Probus is all about social connections in retirement.   Probus Clubs provides the opportunity for retirees and semi-retirees to come together in our local community, make new friends, hear wonderful guest speakers, participate in a range of activities, and opens the door to new experiences and friendships in retirement.
The Probus Club of Tawa was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Tawa and commenced in 1995 and today has 80+ members.  Tawa Probus meets monthly at the Tawa Bowling Club, 13 Davies St, Tawa, on the 3rd Monday of the month (except Dec and Jan), at 9.30am, for speakers and morning tea.
