President Vanessa Dodunski's Welcome
Tauranga Te Papa Rotary Club is a lunchtime club that meets every Thursday at Hotel Armitage & Conference Centre Hotel at 9 Willow St, Tauranga.  Our club was founded in 1981.We are a strong and vibrant club with around 53 members who are passionate and committed to engaging in projects that benefit our communities both locally & internationally.
 
 We are very involved in the Rotary Youth programmes particularly International Youth Exchange & Youth Driver Awareness. We give ongoing support the Welcome Bay School for projects they need completing and have partnered with ACG School to form an Interact (junior Rotary Club) who participate in fundraising for the local community.
We are also heavily involved on the ongoing development of the Kopurererau Valley Reserve with tree planting and rat baiting We have excellent Speakers at our meetings who present varied and enlightened insight into their adventures, careers or organisations.
 
We organize some exciting fundraising events during the year including, The Great Tauranga Duck Race and a Golf Tournament. Funds from events go to support local organisations and the wider Rotary International movement which majors on Polio eradication worldwide as well as providing aid to developing countries and those affected by natural disasters.
 
We are also a very socially active club and hold an Annual Car Rally, movie evenings, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, monthly Friday night drinks etc. with a planned bike trail ride coming up to name a few.
We look forward to welcoming visiting Rotarians and prospective new members to any of our meetings and invite you to message us by clicking on the following link:  Contact Us Page.
 
Yours in Rotary, Vanessa.
