Frankton Te Rapa Club was formed after the merger of the two clubs; Frankton and Te Rapa. This merger made our club to be one of the oldest Rotary Clubs not just in Hamilton but also in our district.
Club meets every Tuesday evening of the week at 5:30pm for fellowship for 6:00pm formal start. The meeting starts with Welcome of new members, guests, apologies and few brief notices. All attendees are then invited to proper two course dinner. This offers another avenue for attendees to mingle and exchange their ideas for service projects and their personal matters forming closer relationship with one another.
The formal Sargent Session starts immediately after the dinner. This a fun-filled session where the Sargent attempts to find out from the members their special events of the week, happy or otherwise and share them in a manner that calls for putting a token amount of their liking into the donation box. These donations are deposits into Club’s Trust Account that is finally used for community support and funding needs.
