Presenting Tom with his second sapphire, District Governor Gina Growden said: :
"Tom epitomises Service Above Self. He is a committed Rotarian who goes out of his way to help whenever he can, both at Club and District level. Since joining Rotary 18 year ago Tom has been frequently asked to MC dinners, changeovers, District conferences and other functions, and has always willingly agreed to do so, carrying out the task with great enthusiasm and professionalism (and always including an occasional Irish joke or two!).
"This year Tom has been an integral part of my training team and also my conference team – he not only organised the Saturday night dinner at the AIS – which was a wonderful success, but was the MC for the entire conference.
"Tom has been an active member of Crows Nest Club and has served on the club Board in various positions and as President of the club on two occasions – in 2001-02 and then again in 2009-10
I have much pleasure in awarding Tom with a second Sapphire pin to go with his PHF recognition. Congratulations, Tom and thank you for the huge contribution you have made to Rotary, and to District 9685 over many years."
Saturday 2 July is the first of our scheduled BBQs at Bunnings Artarmon for the next six months.
It will be the 1st of 13 occasion that Bunnings customers will have the opportunity to taste how great are our snags! The aroma simply brings the crowds.
Fundraising is integral to the success of any charitable organisation. The Rotary Club of Crows Nest is no exception.
In addition to the regular barbecue at Bunnings, Artarmon, the club coordinates the sale of Melbourne Cup Trifecta tickets to other clubs to assist in their fundraising.
These events not only help us raise money to assist others, but it also increases awareness in the community of Rotary and our Rotary Club of Crows Nest.
Our members have great fun being chefs and shop attendants every few weeks and the club as a whole owes all its volunteers a debt of gratitude. We look forward to seeing you again at Bunnings in the next six months and thank them for the opportunity.
There certainly is more to Rotary than just great sausages.
