TTC's Centenary

Centennial history book

The Centennial history book is at the printers 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 31 May 2019.
Additional copies will be available to members at a member's only price, if you are interested please indicate on a no obligation basis your interest in additional copies.

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 [period] president [snail] ttc [period] org [period] nz?Subject=Query%20from%20TTC%20website on 021 966 312
