2 July 2021
Dear Fellow Club Members and Friends,
Please note there is no Club Zoom meeting this week.  See my note later about the District Zoom Changeover on 4 July.  Hopefully you will be able to join in.
This week, the committee is working on the new date for our changeover. However, due to the Covid circumstances, we have had to wait till the NSW Government decides if events can be held.  We have tentatively decided on 23 July. Our Annual Report was ready to be given out at the changeover. Thanks to Garry and Konica Minolta for being our printing sponsor.
As the Rotary financial year is approaching, our club has delivered some of our donations recently.
Besides all 6 local schools, we have donated to Australian Rotary Heath, the Centre for Emotion Health from Macquarie University, the Rotary Foundation, the Exodus Foundation (Bill Crews), ShelterBox Australia, ROMAC and Foodbank NSW.
The President's position and all other positions will be changed at 3pm AEST on July 1, 2021 (Midnight 30 June Chicago time). This Bulletin will be my last one as President for 2020-21.  I welcome Peter Mason as President 2021-22 and Sandeep Rathi as President Elect.
We are also welcome members from Rotary Club of Chatswood Sunrise as they join us.
The District Changeover will be by Zoom without registration. I encourage members to join.
Rotary District 9685 is inviting you to a Zoom meeting for the District Changeover on Sunday, 4th July at 12.00 pm. We can all dress up in our most colourful clothes to meet the theme of Colourful Changeover.

Save the Date - New Date for the Annual Celebration Dinner 23 July 2021

We have made a  new booking for Friday 23 July to hold our 2021 Annual Celebration Dinner at Basil's Seafood Restaurant, Dehli Road North Ryde.
This is pending the lifting of current restrictions of lockdown and the lifting of the 4 square metre rule. We will confirm the booking closer to the date as restrictions ease. 
Please don't hesitate to contact me or Garry Maloney at if you have any questions or concern

Hash Browns (gluten free)
Slow Roasted Tomato

Please let Garry Maloney know if you will be attending this Assembly by Friday 16 July, so that he can let Dunmore Lang College know the numbers for catering purposes.

A Thank You from Macquarie University and the Centre for Emotional Health
This year the Rotary Club of North Ryde has made a donation of $4000 to the Centre for Emotional Health at Macquarie University. These funds were raised through the North Ryde eFun Run for Mental Health that we organised in April this year. This donation will support the Cool Kids Program at the Centre for Emotional Health, enabling families, who otherwise could not afford, to access this valuable program for children experiencing anxiety.
We had planned to make a presentation to representatives from the Centre for Emotional Health at the Annual Celebration Dinner last Friday evening. However as the dinner has been postponed, the Board agreed the donation was to be made directly before the end of this financial year. Below is a letter of thanks from the University, I have been advised the funds will be allocated directly to the Centre. For more information on the Centre for Emotional Health and the Cool Kids program go to
