Congratulations Martin!

Last Week we had a special occasion chaired by District Governor Deb Gimblett, and with 15 guests including many Past District Governors, incoming District Governor Anthony Scott and DG Nominee Simon Manning.

The announcement that Martin Garcia has been appointed District Governor Nominee Designate for the year 2016-17 was greeted with wide applause. Congratulations, Martin and Denise from your fellow Tawa Rotary members.

Good health @ Revolve

Tawa Rotarians and their friends / relations are very welcome to join - so come along and give it a go. FREE for first time attendees – else only $10pp per session. A bargain for a 40 min. weights and exercise circuit to tone up those muscles following Easter Sunday feasting on chocolate.
