Timaru No.8 Break a Sweat…

Meanwhile down in South Canterbury, Round Table Timaru have been helping keep the towns residents warm with their Fire wood fundraiser.  Thanks to Grant Marshall and the team at Timaru Hire for the good deal on the wood chipper, Howard for the trees and the Table boys that turned up, apparently still lots more to keep them busy!

Thames Deliver Again…

thamesAnthony Round tells us “Round Table Thames has in the last month delivered 6996 Waikato Phone books in our area and in two weeks time the club will deliver the local phone books.

We’ve booked a Thai Restaurant in Paeroa for this years club Christmas dinner on 2nd December. Round Table Thames have arranged to get Christmas Trees cut for us from the forestry on Friday 12th December and we sell them at our local liquor store car park on Saturday 13th.

We are providing money for Thames Fire Brigade, Thames Scouts and Tapu Fire Brigade from our end of year projects”.

What have Round Table Mosgiel been up to? From the Pen of Grant Gibson

Away TripsIMAG0584
Recent away trips – Milton Hilton – Prison visit which was a fantastic chance to see the inner workings of the prison, and what is being done to rehabilitate prisoners.  This is after going through a local hot rod collection, as well as a visit to the local funeral home over the past few months.
Social Events –
Annual Fishing Trip – Lake Benmore.  Around 25 current and ex tablers invaded Lake Benmore for the annual fishing trip.  Sixth year in a row at this location, and some new stories were added to the legend of the Mosgiel Round Table fishing weekend.
We have the Christmas Gifts project again this year, providing gifts to under privileged children in the Taieri region, with BNZ and Warehouse supporting us.  Last year over 230 gifts were provided to the region.  We have also been working on wood chopping, with most of the massive loads of wood now ringed and ready for splitting. We take a major part in the Can Drive around the Mosgiel region. We are also erecting the community Christmas Tree down the main street of Mosgiel. As well as that, we have the A&P show, for which we do the parking.




Wanganui, Pride of the District

Grant Hird writes: Our annual Garden Galore fundraiser went well . We’ve recently had a social dinner / mini bus trip out with the ladies which involved a golf driving range , some dodgy shots . We have entertained in the past year German & Austrian ( later stayed with me for a night) RT visitors.  We are looking forward too our end of year social functions & have a trip to Paraparaumu to visit the Tuatara Brewery / Southwards Car Museum for an overnight trip staying @ the PSA  holiday homes . Later we will stay there again & see the Hurricanes defeat some poor saps.  Round Table Wanganui also dismantled a bird aviary and transported it for reassembly to a local bird rescue centre .

Up to their knees in it….

The cheeky lads at Gore have been busy on their fertiliser drive. This project teams up Round Table Gore with the local Ford dealer and the Gore Air Training corps, to make a difference locally. Also Gore has their annual xmas tree hunt coming up on December 6th and December 13th

Christmas Giving Tree

A huge shout out to Round Table Mosgiel for this idea. Round Table Christchurch and Balclutha are adopting this Christmas project, hopefully come December 25th putting smiles on lots of Kiwi kids faces.

The Christchurch boys had a really good laugh planning and making our tree on Sunday afternoon. No limbs were lost whilst using the skillsaw, so a successful day all round.
