Crows Nest Rotarians were part of an important community project of helping to raise funds for the Salvation Army through the Doorknock Appeal on Sunday 29 May.
The Rotary Clubs of North Sydney, North Sydney Sunrise and Crows Nest, together with Australian Catholic University again worked in partnership for this project. Last year, we collected $13,000 on the day and hope to do even better this year.
Three hours to help one million people was most appreciated.
Chatswood Rotary is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Gordon Waterhouse Memorial Music Scholarship at the Zenith Theatre in Chatswood on Wednesday 8 June.
Six young musicians from the six local high schools will compete for prizes of $3,000 as they showcase their musical talents.
Many of the past winners are now studying at The Conservatorium or playing professionally in Australia and Europe.
The event is free ... so if you enjoy excellent music and are close to Chatswood at 7pm on Wednesday 8 June .... our colleagues at Chatswood Rotary would enjoy your company.
Congratulations to the students who took part in the Model United Nations Assembly on the weekend of 14-15 May. Very impressive work to represent your assigned countries so passionately.
In the end it was the delegates of Colombia (SHORE School) - sponsored by Crows Nest Rotary - who took out the competition and will now go on to compete in the National MUNA this August. Congratulations Columbia!
Saturday 4 June marks the last scheduled BBQ at Bunnings Artarmon for the current six months. It will be the 11th occasion this half-year that Bunnings customers have had 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 There will be more news about the latter shortly.
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.
There certainly is more to Rotary than just great sausages.
