Rotary Cambridge

 

Rotary Cambridge supports many community projects. We're always looking for assistance to support the club with these projects.
 
 
 
Taste Waikato:
In 2018 Jan Bilton and Michael Ryan compiled and edited this wonderful recipe book and proceeds are a major part of Rotary Cambridge's annual fundraising efforts.

Showcasing a tempting selection of the very best New Zealand foods and the people who produce them, Taste Waikato is the ultimate smorgasbord. An indispensable ‘go-to’ guide for foodies. 

More than 80 easy, appealing, innovative recipes provide gourmet delights that capture the true taste of the Waikato. Dishes feature meats including beef, lamb, chicken, duck and salami; fish and seafood; cheeses and dairy delights; fruit; vegetables; nuts; honey; olive oil; tea; unique preserves; and wines and beers. And enjoy the stories of the people and families who produce this fabulous fare.

 
Cambridge Garden Festival:

The 2019 inaugural Cambridge Garden Festival was a huge success. Eleven garden owners were on hand to share their gardens, secrets and stories, and there were smiles everywhere we looked.

Planning is already under way for 2020.

Save the date - Sunday 22tnd November 2020 - we will have some fresh gardens, some of the gardens that you want to see again and a couple of new surprises for you!  We will update you during the year, and tickets will begin selling around August 

 
Recycling Project
While still in the planning stages, this project is very exciting with great outcomes for our community and planet earth! Watch this spavce
 
Marshalling:
Every August we help out the Cambridge Harriers by providing marshals for their ½ marathon, 10km and 5km events. This is not big time consumer and the harriers make a nice donation to Rotary. We also marshal for the annual Christmas parade in December
 
Bookarama: 
In May we hold a huge used book sale, the proceeds of which go to community projects. Many hours are spent collecting, sorting, pricing and storing the books before the sale
 
Armistice Event:
In November each year we help out the Armistice of Cambridge Committee. We take the entrance money from the public on the Saturday and Sunday, from 8.30am till 3pm each day.
 
RYLA:
Each year we nominate 2 to 3 young adults to attend this course. They must be between 20 and 26 years of age and have potential to be future leaders in our community. We look for these people around February for them to attend the course in April at Epworth Camp on Lake Karapiro. The club pays the $650 fee on top of a $100 fee paid by the awardee.
 
RANZE:
This is a youth exchange with Australia. NZ student aged 13  to 16 years are matched with an Australian and spend 12 weeks in each other’s homes and their country.
 
Speech Contest:
On the first Friday night in December each year Rotary runs its annual speech contest. This is open to students from Year 5 to Year 8 from surrounding schools. They pick their own topic and speak for 3 to 5 minutes.
