Denise and I have often popped into Foxton, particularly when our children were young, because of the windmill De Molen. AG Chris was able to tell us that the main street in Foxton is so wide because it was designed to allow carts with up to six bullocks to turn around.
I was pleased to hear that Foxton will soon also host the Dutch Connection Museum, which will be the New Zealand National Dutch Museum recording and showcasing the Dutch immigration experience. This will be a great tourism attraction for Foxton and you can find more information about developments at http://www.dutchconnection.org.nz/

It is great to see Foxton developing with the support of its local Rotary Club which is providing events for the local community and attractions that enhance the lives of local people while also drawing in more people to contribute to the local community.
Foxton Rotary is of course engaged in many projects and activities, including supporting our youth to RYPEN, RYLA, RYDA, the Rotary National Science and Technology Forum and school speech competitions.
Foxton Rotary is another good example of Rotary improving the lives of everyone in our communities.
