Tauranga’s future and Rotary Otumoetai

Delivering the Rotary Wheel in Te Puna Quary Park.

The Rotary Club of Otumoetai is 50-years-old and is having a birthday party on June 10.

The club has a lot to celebrate; Otumoetai Rotary built the gates at Fergusson Park, a barbecue at Kulim Reserve and the waterwheel at Te Puna Quarry Park.

It has also planted trees in the Kopurererua Valley and the flowering daffodils in Bureta Park Gardens. 

Club president Peter Stanley says that Rotary’s best work is in helping people. 

“Both in our local community and overseas we contribute to youth projects. For instance, right now, we are providing resources and assistance to two schools in Tauranga while we are also supporting girls’ education in Fiji.”

At the 50 years’ celebration, CEO of Tauranga City Council Marty Grenfell will be speaking at the event about his view of Tauranga’s future.

“We are lucky to have Marty and we’d love to see lots of other people at our birthday,” says Peter. “Past members of the club are especially welcome, as is anybody who would like to know more about Rotary.”

Tickets cost $30 and must be booked in advance.
