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
Rotary Gym class for this Sunday 27th April is cancelled because of the long weekend. Regular weekly classes at midday Sunday will continue again from 4th May – all welcome.
The Tawa Rotary Revolve Gym class continues each Sunday, at midday, or 10 minutes earlier if you wish to warm up on a treadmill. At Revolve Gym, The Mall, Tawa. 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.
