Rangiuru Sports to mark 125 years

Te Puke Times - - NEWS - By HINE AHOMIRO

The Rangiuru Sports Club has long been an in­te­gral part of the sport­ing sec­tor — not only in Te Puke but for the wider Bay of Plenty — and it still en­joys that sta­tus. Sports played un­der the man­tle of the club are rugby, netball, ten­nis, 8 ball, rugby league and soft­ball.

This Labour Week­end the club will cel­e­brate its 125th an­niver­sary, toast­ing the vi­sion­ary mem­bers who con­ceived the Rangiuru Sports Club, the mem­bers who have en­sured the legacy con­tin­ues — and of course, sport.

Through eco­nomic booms and re­ces­sions, and whanau mov­ing to other parts of the coun­try and the world, Rangiuru has en­dured, and con­tin­ued to pro­mote its val­ues of strength­en­ing whanau ties, tikanga and the love of all sports.

We hope to see the Te Puke com­mu­nity some­time dur­ing Labour Week­end to help us cel­e­brate our mo­men­tous an­niver­sary.

See Te Puke Times next week for more in­for­ma­tion.
