Zelati Gelato in Tawa
Alberto Tuason opened up the doors of Zelati to Rotarians and friends on Tuesday evening. Alberto explained how Zelati is now supplying various outlets in the Wellington region, such as several New World supermarkets, Moore Wilson and several restaurants. All of the churning is carried out in the Tawa factory but due to strict hygiene and audit requirements we were not allowed to enter the factory. Alberto explained the range of delicious flavours of gelato and sorbet that were available in the shop, followed by a tasting and the opportunity to purchase, which many took up. We are fortunate to have such a high quality, innovative gourmet food manufacturer based in Tawa.
Robert making the hard decision-which flavour?

Hanging Baskets – Community Project
Sat 21 June (3.30pm). Richard Herbert is arranging a working bee on Saturday 21 June to replant the flower baskets along the main road retail area. Positive feedback continues to be received from our community about making our main street in Tawa look attractive and alive with flowers. Richard has found a more cost-effective source to replace the contents of the baskets. It doesn’t take long to replant the baskets with a good number of Rotarians and friends to help.
Meeting is at the Tawa Fire Service at 3.30pm to load up baskets. Please advise Richard of your availability.
Sat 28 June. Stadium DM duties (after Book Fair) 7.35pm kickoff Hurricanes v Crusaders. Please advise Tony Heyward of your availability to help with this important fundraiser.

Rotary Fellowships Month
The month of June is Rotary Fellowship Month in the Rotary calendar. "Rotary Fellowships", refer to the groups of Rotarians, Rotarian partners and Rotaractors who join together to:
- Share a common interest in worthwhile recreational activities (sports, hobbies, etc.);
- Further their vocational development through acquaintance with others of the same profession;
- Make new friends around the world;
- Explore new opportunities for service; and
- Have fun and enhance their experience in Rotary.
Examples of Rotary Fellowships include: Rotarians on the Internet (ROTI), International Fellowship of Rotarians of Amateur Radio (ROAR), International Computer Users Fellowship of Rotarians (ICUFR), International Fellowship of Rotary Convention Goers, International Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians, International Fellowship of Rotarians Musicians, Rotary Global History Fellowship, etc.
The field is so varied, which includes cricket social networking, marathon running, scuba diving, flying, bird watching, chess, doll lovers, environment, Esperanto, go, gourmets, lawyers, magic, nurses, police and law enforcement professionals, recreational vehicles, singles, stockbrokers, venture capitalists, wine and yoga.
Each Rotary Fellowship operates independently of Rotary International, with its own rules, dues requirements and administrative structure. Membership is open to Rotarians, partners of Rotarians and Rotaractors. It must be international in nature with active members in at least three (3) countries. Each fellowship elects at least three (3) officers to oversee the group's administration. The Rotary Fellowships are expected to facilitate communication among their members and maintain regular communication with RI.
What are the benefits for Rotarians in joining the Rotary Fellowships? Fellowships provide opportunities for Rotarians to make lasting friendships outside their own Club, District or country. Fellowships contribute to the advancement of world understanding and peace. Also, Fellowships serve as an incentive for attracting new members to Rotary and retaining our existing members. Indeed, Rotary Fellowship, together with the Rotarian Action Groups, serve as an effective tool in promoting membership development and should be actively promoted in our Districts.
Interested Rotarians can join a Rotary Fellowship – see: http://www.rotary.org/programs/fellowships/index.html or even start a prospective Rotary Fellowship if their recreational or vocational interest is not in the list of approved Rotary Fellowships.
