Wine Appreciation Together
Last week we had a very enjoyable Wine Appreciation Evening with our Rotary neighbours - 70 Rotarians and friends. The wines were challenging – so many experts. Responsible hosts with the meal selection from New World Tawa that was first rate. Thanks to Andrew Watson and all those helping.
Public Image Award for Tawa
District Governor Deb Gimblett presented Tawa Rotary with a Public Image Award 2014 for outstanding promotion of Rotary in their community.
The citation was: “The Rotary Club of Tawa has achieved articles in the local community newspaper about what Tawa Rotary has been doing. They wear the Rotary High Vis jackets to promote Rotary in the community. The Club has achieved a dedicated meeting to arrange awareness of public image within the club, and the club have achieved a joint project “toot for tucker” with the local Lions club. Rotary Tawa has an article printed in the Communities in Action book which again confirms their commitment to raising the public image of Rotary throughout NZ.

We've been very privileged to know Fred through his extensive years of service with Rotary such as the outstanding support he has provided to his lovely wife, Glynis while she was our Assistant Governor, and through the invaluable work he has done in the community, like the Relay for Life in Porirua. With very best wishes to Glynis, your family and to our fellow Rotarians in Porirua Sundown.
