What has our Club been doing?
Great show for our first recording of the Carols. When we thought back in June it would not be possible to have a Carols in 2020 it was good that we thought laterally and went a little bit virtual. The final result shows what can be done as Clubs work together. We must give a huge thank you to Roseanna Gallo from Macquarie Park who led the singers.  If you haven't had a peek do so in the next week before Christmas.

On Monday 7 December, I delivered nearly 200 items to the Smith family Toy and Book Appeal that were donated by the North Ryde Community to the Tree of Joy this year.   Thank you to Bernie and Peter Mason who helped with the sorting of the gifts. Our next delivery of toys and gifts will be to the St Vincent De Paul Society at North Ryde later this week. We have extended the Tree of Joy closing date to Wednesday 16 December.
Thank you to everyone who has so generously donated to the Tree of Joy and to Cox's Road Mall, Bendigo Bank, Caffe InContro, Ritchies IGA and North Ryde Pharmacy for their ongoing support of the Tree of Joy. Thank you also to our wonderful helpers Liane Corbett, Victoria Crawford, Bernie and Peter Mason, Rob and Carolin Wilkinson and Allan McNallty who have regularly collected the gifts from the Tree of Joy and placed them in safe storage, which has been generously provided to us by Jason Hodge from St Michael's Mission.

The Rotary Club of North Ryde participated in the 'Sausage Sizzle' at Bunnings BBQ North Ryde on Saturday 28 November.
It was a long hot day, with the BBQ running from 9am to 4pm, but the Rotary day was from 6:30am to 6:00pm, after picking up food for the day in the morning and the clean up and taking items back to our Kennards storage at the end.
The following members were there for the whole day:
Rob Wilkinson, Mandy Van, David Martin, Peter Mason and Garry Maloney.
The following members were there for half the day:
Bernie Mason, who started there in the morning, had to leave and then came back around 12 noon, Sandeep Rathi (morning), Pam Wood (afternoon) and Liane Corbett (morning).
We also had help from two people from Rotaract, Sara and Nirth. It was a great effort by our team. The result of that effort is that the club made a profit for the day of $1,433.
Well done everyone but with special thanks to Garry and Rob who did the bulk of the organising. Thank you also to Kevin Lance from Eastwood-Gladesville Rotary Club for his great advice and support for our first Bunnings BBQ!
A big thank you also to our supporters Bush's Meats at Gladesville;  Ritchies IGA,  Cox's Road Fruit Market and Bendigo Bank North Ryde

Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are non-political, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto “Service above Self”, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.


The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

•FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

•SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

•THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;

•FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.



Of the things we think, say & do:

1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?


 Did you know for a once-off payment of $100 you can become a Friend of Australian Rotary Health for life?
As the end of the year draws near does your club want to honour someone who has made a special contribution? Are you looking for a gift for someone who has everything? Make them a Friend of Australian Rotary Health and in so doing support medical research in Australia. It is as simple as phoning 8837 1900.
