Dannevirke Rotary - connecting their community

Dannevirke Rotary was well-advanced in organising their Spring Festival when I visited last night.  They are coordinating a range of weekly events and attractions during October.  There are a diverse range of events and attractions, from exotic sheep shearing to a parade and arts and crafts exhibitions.

It is great to see such a diverse range of community groups being coordinated under the Rotary banner with sponsorships from local businesses, including the local New World supermarket which is owned and operated by Rotary President Garry Hasler and Bridget.

They are listening to the needs of their community and are planning to provide two bus shelters for inter-city and school travellers. There are many other projects they are working on or planning, including the next stage of a walkway.

Dannevirke Rotarians have also adapted their Club meetings to suit members' needs and provide diversity.  Each month they have one evening business meeting, one breakfast meeting, two evening meetings with speakers and if there is a fifth Tuesday in the month they will have a social event.
