Past President Jim Mein and Gill caught up with our lovely Norwegian Exchange Student  #CorneliaBjorke (1997-1998), during their current travels --great memories of the wonderful experience for our Club having these fine young folks visit with us. 🌻  #rotaryyouthexchange
Club members and a group of Knox volunteers were up early to offer the Wahroonga Community an opportunity to make a contribution to the Cancer Council's special fundraising day.
Thanks to Dr Yvonne McMaster Kuringgai Women of the year and Cancer advocate for joining out team.
 
They assembled at the Wahroonga Railway station at 6.30am and raised $1500.
 
Well done folks and thanks to Jenetta!   More pics: Here

It isn't often one has the pleasure of meeting a person with such a creative approach to supporting people less fortunate than ourselves.
 
Today we had the pleasure of meeting such a fellow Chris Savill, who has created a business model embracing well qualified trades people with a willingness to offer their services  to assist a family, or individual, or community group that is struggling and in genuine need of trade services?  United Tradies
 
Congratulations Chris --a wonderful concept --Chris would like recommendations of valuable capable trades people to include among his "welfare army"
 
Great Club support for the annual SAN Run for Life Community event supporting the SAN Foundation--20 members acted as course marshals and manned the Bag drop area.

This week Club Members gathered at the Wahroonga Railway station with some supportive young Knox students and others collecting donations to add to our efforts supporting our Drought Relief project. Our collective efforts to date have exceeded $10,000 and climbing.
 
The Club has developed a relationship with the Rotary Club of Narrabri and will be travelling to that location next week to begin dispensing funds.
 
Donations can be made at the Clubs Drought Relief page: Drought Relief -- OR a transfer to the Club's Bank account (please use description "Drought Relief")  RCW Foundation Trust Account BSB: 032189, Account: 256574

The support for Drought relief from all over Australia is fantastic. Whether it be large Corporate donations--or local country town collections.

The Wahroonga Rotary Club has mounted a campaign via the link elsewhere on our Website and taken a local initiative in the Wahroonga Shopping centre together with a planned bucket brigade in the Hornsby Mall next week.
 
The Buy a Bale collection barrels (pictured below) are currently placed at the:
 
--IGA Wahroonga
--Wahroonga Pharmacy
--The Laneway coffee shop
 
 
Click here and share this with friends and colleagues using the social media buttons provided.
 
We look forward to you supporting us with this campaign. 
 
President Stuart Armstrong is asking how you might help our country communities who are experiencing the consequences of severe drought. 
 
It is important to remember that often time money is the best sort of assistance that we can send.

The money can be converted into grocery cards administered by agencies such as The Salvation Army, CWA, Rural Aid, local Rotary Clubs and Councils.
 
Wahroonga Rotary will have members conducting local community collections but you may also visit our Donation Web page and make a direct online contribution.
 
        Go to : Drought Relief Project
 
 An electronic acknowledgment and a Tax deductible receipt will be sent
 
Thanks you for your participation.
 
Stuart

The PACE program at Macquarie University (Professional and Community Engagement)

I will talk about the PACE program at Macquarie University (Professional and Community Engagement) and present a recent assignment I was involved in as an academic working for PACE, in partnership with an organisation in Nepal. The project was to evaluate a program to address child marriage in this country.
