Club News
This week we had a wonderful meeting --made especially so by the large number of visitors and prospective new members who attended.
 
The Hon Paul Fletcher- Member for Bradfield- was our guest speaker and Jenetta Russell conducted a searching interview with Paul with some great questions to follow--good work Jenetta --great research!
 
We were honored by Paul accepting an Honorary Membership of the Club.
 
 
 
A bright and cheerful meeting held at the St Lucys Special School Wahroonga this week and we heard from the Principal David Raphael and Deputy Principal Susan Jones about the challengers and support programmes focused on the Children and families of the students.
 
Thanks to the staff who prepared a lovely breakfast for us.
 
 
Club Members will be up early on the 25th August to raise funds for Cancer research and participate in the signature Daffodil Day selling at the Wahroonga Station--join us by signing up as a volunteer below--in particular we would love to see our past Rotarians friends rugged up and ready to go at 7.00am.
 
 
Last week we had the pleasure of hosting the CEO of the PCYC in NSW Dominic Teakle and DG Peter Ward together with Honorary Member Alister Henskens.
 
Apart from hearing an enthusiastic address about the PCYC strategic Direction from Dominic a new collaborative memorandum of understanding was signed between District 9685 and the PCYC to further each groups objectives in the Community. A great occasion and will lead to continuing the 80 year relationship between the PCYC and Rotary.
