7 and 8 December - Toot4Tucker:
Our annual Toot4Tucker - street collection for Tawa Foodbank is happening on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th December.
Can all Rotarians please keep these dates free as we are looking to have a large turnout. This collection, led by Tawa Rotary, is being undertaken in conjunction with local service organisations, family and friends. Hoping for great weather as we go through the streets of Tawa!
We will be taking an indication of numbers at the 1 December meeting.
A special thanks to the following people who helped out at the Elton John Concert last week:
- Marion Patchett
- Steve Martin
- Richard Herbert
- Robert Armstrong
- Gaylene Lines
- Tony Heyward
A great evening to work and the music was fantastic. $700 was raised for Tawa Rotary Charity Account.
Christmas – Pot Luck Progressive Dinner
Back by popular demand is the “Pot Luck Progressive Dinner” on Saturday 12th December 2015, from 6.30pm.
- Attendees do the cooking and keep us all guessing!
- ‘progressive’ - attendees go from house to house.
- Event outline - three homes for entrees, three homes for mains, and then a central home for dessert and coffee.
- Each couple will be allocated their venues (and timetable) to attend, and one of those venues to provide their ‘pot luck dish’.
Being as we are responsible drivers, and conscious of the new drink driving laws, the emphasis of the event is food and fellowship, but you are welcome to assist with BYO.
Malcolm invites offers of hosts, and Club Service believes hosts don’t need to provide a ‘pot luck dish’, but perhaps a few drinks. Otherwise there is no cost.
Hope you are all able to attend - we will be contacting you all in the next few days to see if you able to join us.
Any questions please contact Malcolm Andrews.
Drivers rostered for Longview:
- 6 December: Paul and Trish Drummond
