Tuakau is just 10 mins from the Southern Motorway and in the heart of Horticulture and farming area of Franklin and Waikato District. Tuakau Rotary was started in 1965 and members have undertaken many projects of benefit to the community , and the Rotary Wheel is around the district in the community.
We meet Mondays 6pm for 6.30pm at Tuakau Hotel in the main street of Tuakau. Our meetings vary from guest speakers, club speakers, fellowship in homes, comittee project planning and visiting other clubs.
Our projects include supporting Rotary Youth Driving, Rotary Youth Leadership, and International Exchange, Group Study Exchange, RYPEN, and much more... Coming projects for 2012-2013 will include: Charity Road toll, Charity Dinner, Car boot sale, community day and more as the year progresses and lots of involvement with our Tuakau College.
Rotary membership is about people like you and me.... considering membership a prospective member was told:‘First ask what can I do for the club to make it strong, he was told, then when the club is strong it can help you.’
The prospective member soon got the message - Rotarians are givers not takers,- they are unpaid, not because they are worthless but because they are priceless.
