18 September 2020

Dear Fellow Club Members and Friends,
Special thanks to our guest speaker last Friday Club Meeting – Rotarian AG Johanna Johns, Ambassador from ShelterBox Australia. Johanna shared ShelterBox International updates, her experience, passion and her fund-raising Tasmania Trek which will now be delayed to March 2021.
Johanna and I, with a team of young-at-heart ladies will be fund raising for ShelterBox Australia in the 2020 Virtual City2Surf.  We are the ShelterBox Girls team and will run on Sunday 18th October 2020. Both of us will carry a ShelterBox to do the 14 km walk from Epping to St Leonards.
I hope you can support us by GIVING NOW on
My quote for this week: Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.
This Wednesday night, 16 September we will visit the NSW Rural Fire Service Warringah HQ at Terry Hills with Rotary Club of Macquarie Park.  This is there thank you to us for the support we have given them but also our thank you to them for the work they do. I'll let you know how the night goes next week.
The next scheduled Club Zoom meeting is 18th September 2020 with our guest speaker – Rev. Bill Crews, a well-respected Australian from Exodus Foundation.  If you know others who'd like to join in please let me know and you can share the Zoom link.
