Coronavirus Delays 2020 Book fair

The annual Rotary charity book fair at the Te Rapa Racecourse, originally scheduled for 7-9 May 2020, has been scratched for the time being.  Our collection depots have been temporarily suspended while the country is in lockdown, and some of them unfortunately will not be available when the lockdown is lifted. The fair itself will likely be a long time returning to its traditional format, but we Rotarians are an adaptable lot, and we will find a way to keep books in the community
 
As with many other areas of post-pandemic life, we will have to adapt to a "new normal".

Rototuna Rotary donates to Rototuna High School

Rototuna Rotary supports the Crafts and Creations Market held annually at the Rototuna High School.

Craft & Creations Market 2019 was held on the 23 November with well over 140+ stalls of craft, arts, sweet treats, health and beauty products and more.

Rototuna Rotary made available a selection of books, DVDs and jigsaws for sale, raising several hundred dollars for the school. It was a great day, with families enjoying the wide range of stalls with everything from cutting boards to candy floss. The school is very much a central pivot of the Rototuna community, and the Rotary club has become a regular supporter.
