Centennial history book
The Centennial history book is well underway and will be the centre piece of the celebration. It will be a very fine history of our club and one to cherish for many years. It will be given free to every financial member (membership definition will be the same as for the Tararua Annual distribution) as of 1 June 2019. Copies will be available for sale at a price yet to be determined.
The club is covering the cost of the book with the Michael Taylor Bequest making a generous gift of $50,000. The committee is currently looking at applying for external funding. Several members have approached the club offering to contribute financially towards the cost of the book. These offers are welcome as donors are not only helping the club pay for the book but also are making a contribution to the broader centennial event.
If you would like to contribute to the production of the Centennial history book could please contact Paul Maxim -> mailto:p [period] maxim [snail] xtra [period] co [period] nz on 027 4470 459 or Patrick Arnold -> mailto:ttc-president [snail] ttc [period] org [period] nz?Subject=Query%20from%20TTC%20website on 021 966 312
The club was formed at a public meeting held during the evening of July 3 1919. It is proposed that the club meet to celebrate 100 years on Wednesday 3 July 2019. We will approach WTMC to see if we can swap club nights on that particular week. The Centennial history book will also be formally released that day. It is envisaged that the afternoon and evening will be time for members to drop in to mix and mingle and enjoy nibbles and drinks. Obviously the size of the hall will have to be considered in planning the exact timetable. The first club trip was a day trip up Mt Kaukau and it seems fitting that a repeat of that first outing take place earlier in the day.
A formal dinner is planned for Saturday 6 July. This will be at a cost to the attendees and numbers may be limited. We are currently looking at venue options.
The TTC Centenary Committee has arranged a purchasing arrangement with Earth Sea Sky to sell to TTC members items of clothing branded with the TTC logo, complete with the centenary year (1909-2019) embroidered under the actual edelweiss representation.
See purchase information and the logo on a beanie and T-shirt.
