Attendees gave a summary on a very successful District Conference held at Foxton.
We welcomed Gary Denton as a new Member to our Club. Gary has had an Accounting practice in Tawa for many years. His wife is Yvonne, and his father, Jack Denton, was a valued member of our Club in earlier years. A warm welcome, Gary.
Last week’s parting thought was from Judith Havill. There were two from Dr Seuss – ‘Today you are you! That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you’. And – ‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not’.
The winner of last week’s New World Tawa raffle was Bruce Philips.
For our Club Forum we received updates on the Tongan Project and the Hanging Baskets in Tawa Project. Questions were answered on other projects, and we gave our views on what we wanted at club functions.
Andrew closed the meeting with the song “The Gambler”
On 1st April Andrew has organised a Wine Appreciation Evening to be run by Wine Consultant Chris Morgan, and we will have a Club Raid from Johnsonville and Plimmerton Rotary Clubs. The programme starts at 6.15, at which stage the bar will be closed, and wines and the meal will be delivered to our tables. Cost is $26 per person, which includes the wines.
