A JIGSAW PUZZLE FOR MOSMAN.. THEN AND NOW
The ROTARY CLUB of MOSMAN has designed and produced the MOSMAN JIGSAW PUZZLE.
Manufactured by HOLDSON New Zealand, this 1,000 piece, double sided puzzle, (690mm x 495mm in finished size), has contemporary images of Mosman in the 2020’s with the reverse side puzzle showing images from the 1890’s.
Available for sale from mid April at a price of $50, it allows one to explore the delights of present day Mosman and Mosman wildlife, including the ubiquitous brush turkey and discover the secrets of yesteryear Mosman. Spot the street where you live now and compare with the same street 130 years ago.

The funds raised by this project will go towards Mosman Club’s 2021 community goals. Mosman Rotary Club members have, over 45 years, contributed their time and passion to support sustainable long-term projects in our area including the women’s refuge, youth and community development, disaster relief, literacy programs, disease treatment and prevention, water and sanitation projects.

THE JIGSAWS HAVE ARRIVED!
On Wednesday we had a strong team on hand to help unload the truck (tricky since most of the pallets were broken). We stored store some 100 or so cartons (8 jigsaws in each carton) in Artarmon, transferred another 70+ cartons to store in Ross and Therese’s garage and distributed some to club members who were on hand to take delivery.
Ross has subsequently transferred a number to Mosman Newsagency, both for them to distribute to individuals who purchased through our web site via Trybooking and they also have their own stock to distribute to buyers who walk into their store. We met with Anthony on Friday and I think he is looking forward to having more foot traffic through his Newsagency. Suri has been in constant contact with Ross and James to ensure our website is up to date with the latest availability information for the jigsaw.
So we are now into selling mode!
