This is my penultimate column and there’s much to report.
Tania and I attended the NSW Police Officer Of the Year Awards (POOTY) Friday 29 April along with 550 guests and acknowledged the remarkable work of so many divisions within the NSW Police Force.
Attending was Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC and Mr. Wilson and Commissioner Karen Webb. Both impressive leaders and their presence added to the atmosphere of a dedicated force congratulating and remembering their own.
Speaking of inspirational women,
We celebrate all Mothers
Enjoy Sunday May 8th
Our best wishes
and Thank you
Club Anniversaries: 1972 was a very productive year for Rotary in then District 968 with six Clubs chartered in that calendar year. Congratulations to; Gosford North, The Entrance, Richmond, Beecroft, Carlingford and Lindfield now part of Ku-ring-gai. Add to these Epping’s 60th.
Just imagine the positive impact these Clubs alone have had on their communities for over 50 years of service. Thus far we’ve attended The Entrance, then Gosford North and a review of their Service over 50 years is an extraordinary list of achievements and fundraising.
Awards: We don’t join Rotary for recognition but over the years various forms of acknowledgement and awards have been created to recognise those members and Clubs that surpass normal service to their communities. Please review the criteria and make submissions to recognise outstanding effort.
D9685 Greater Sydney Flood Appeal: Donate at RAWCS Greater Sydney Flood Appeal
Our Flood Appeal is at a remarkable
To Do List with 8 weeks left in this Rotary year:
Rescheduling due the pandemic means there’s many Club events happening, so I do hope the weather is kind and allows maximum participation for fun runs, outdoor concerts and changeovers. Best wishes for the final push in activities, giving and membership and let’s end with strong results in a challenging year.
RAWCS Flood Appeal for Sydney Region Fundraising Completed!
Thanks to all the clubs and individuals which have helped us exceed the $100,000 target for this project to assist victims of the Sydney region floods!
We are now distributing $500 Woolworths/Big W vouchers to clubs in the affected areas who are working with the local community to provide assistance where it is most needed.
So far, the clubs involved include Windsor (see Press release), The Ponds, Kurrajong/North Richmond, The Hills, and Kariong Somersby. If your club is aware of further needs for flood relief in your area, please contact DG Lindsay May, or Deputy Project Manager David Dean.
If your club has already raised funds specifically for this appeal, but has not yet made a donation, please let me know urgently. We must honour the promises made to donors!
However, if you have raised funds more generally, please consider making your donation to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund, Polio Program, or Disaster Response Fund instead.
Although the needs throughout the world seem overwhelming, every dollar we contribute makes a difference in someone’s life.
Yours in Rotary
DG Lindsay May and Tania
Lindsay May OAM
District Governor 2021-2022
