Dear Fellow Club Members and Friends,
The 40°C weekend did not stop our club from running the BBQ at Bunnings Gladesville. It may not have been the best day in Bunnings and the staff helped us. Our best customers were the Bunning’s staff (4 serves for 1).
We also met some of our local community friends and leaders. Go North Ryde Rotarians and Macquarie Ryde Rotaractors!
Not forgetting our sponsors: Officeworks, Ritchie's IGA at Coxs Rd, North Ryde RSL Club, and of course Bunnings Gladesville.
Thanks so much to all our workers for your long day and hard work and the organisation with Bunnings and logistics for all the supplies and equipment.
My quote for this week: “The nice thing about teamwork is that you always have others on your side.” By Margaret Carty
I am hoping for good health to all our members and their partners.
The next scheduled Club Zoom meeting is 4th December 2020 for AGM, Club Assembly for Membership and debrief section for our Bunning BBQ event.

Tree of joy
Tree of Joy
The Tree of Joy continues at Coxs Road Mall until 12 December. Every day we are amazed at the number of gifts placed under the tree. Big thanks to Pam Wood, Garry Maloney. Bernie and Pete Mason, Liane Corbett and Alan (he used to clean at Coxs Rd Mall and since his retirement is still helping us out) for collecting the gifts and placing in the store room.
This photo is an example of the number of gifts being collected each day - often two trolleys full.  The generosity of the North Ryde community is wonderful.
Bunnings BBQ
Bunnings BBQ
The Rotary Club of North Ryde participated in the 'Sausage Sizzle' at Bunnings BBQ North Ryde last 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.
Here are a few photos.  There are more in the photo album.
