The Rotary Clubs of Macquarie Park and North Ryde came together to celebrate the opening of the variable mounting ramp for Riding for the Disabled at Ryde on Tuesday 15 October. After 2 years of fundraising and a Rotary grant enough funds were raised to construct the ramp. 
Warren Smith form RDA has sent the following thanks and update to both clubs:
Hi Dear Rotary Friends,

Sorry I have been tied up in meetings until late this afternoon but eager to get this news out to you.
I personally wanted to thank you all for the amazing support of the RDA Ryde project.
A big thank you.
As some of you witnessed yesterday the horses are still undertaking familiarization with the changes and the new rubber matting has a strong smell so heightens their caution. Many Rotarians saw the dedication and kindness of the volunteers that kept leading the horses on the new route to the mounting arena and it was quite clear the bond and trust the horses have with their volunteers.
I heard a few comments saying they did not realise the complexity of running the RDA Ryde program.
That patience and trust of our volunteers paid off. 

Later in the day I am pleased to say that a couple of riders used the new mounting platform. The feedback was a glowing positiveness.
I have no doubt the huge difference this will make to the comfort and safety of the riders, volunteers and horses.
Thank you.
Best wishes
Warren Smith
 On Friday 20 September 2019 we held a Thank You Breakfast for all our sponsors, supporters and volunteers who helped make the North Ryde Fun Run  a great success. Certificates of Appreciation were presented to all those who helped our club with the event.
The Fun Run raised $15000 for Youth Mental Health. A cheque for $8000 was presented to Terry Davies from Australian Rotary Health which will go towards research into Youth Mental Health. A second cheque  of $4000 was presented to Dr Carly Johnco from the Centre for Emotional Health. This will go towards supporting the Cool Kids program and research.
Explore and Develop Epping Road was also presented with the $500 cash prize for the school or pre-school that had the most entries in the Fun Run. For more photos see photo albums.

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.
