Cherrybrook Public School as a part of their annual fund raising program is having an International Food Fair providing cuisine from different parts of the world and they have requested us if we could run their BBQ stall for them.
They will provide us with all the materials including the BBQ & gas and proceeds collected will go to P&C funds.
Apart from being a fun evening, great fellowship, it will also provide us a FANTASTIC opportunity to showcase our club and engage with huge number of guests in our own community.
Last year they sold approximately 18 kg sausages.
I am looking for 6 to 8 volunteers starting from 4:30 to 7:30 pm (maximum 8:00pm).
Clean water and sanitation is a human right. When people, especially children, have access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, they lead healthier and more successful lives.
We don’t just build wells and walk away. Rotary members integrate water, sanitation, and hygiene into education projects. When children learn about disease transmission and practice good hygiene, they miss less school. And they can take those lessons home to their families, expanding our impact.
Rotary has issued a global challenge to its members, asking them to work collectively to improve education quality and access — particularly for girls — by working with communities to improve teacher training, curriculum, and water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities
ADVOCATES FOR CLEAN WATER
WASH IN SCHOOLS TARGET CHALLENGE
Rotarians join the fight to clean up the western basin of Lake Erie, the source of drinking water for millions of people
ROTARY'S TARGET CHALLENGE to develop sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene (WASH), and education projects is being piloted in five countries: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, India, and Kenya.
ROTARY HAS PARTNERED WITH THE U.S. AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT to implement sustainable, long-term projects to improve water supply, sanitation, and hygiene in the Dominican Republic, Ghana, and the Philippines.
ROTARY MEMBERS ARE PROVIDING CLEAN, FRESH WATER to every public school in Lebanon, so students can be healthier and get a better education.
ROTARY AND THE IHE DELFT INSTITUTE FOR WATER EDUCATION have teamed up to tackle the world’s water and sanitation crisis by training professionals to devise and implement solutions in developing and emerging countries.

President Colin welcomed members partners and guests. Partners tonight were Anne and Roma. Guests were our speaker David Streichler, Jaswant Thakorlal and Indira, and Larissa.
Thank you, Rotarian David, for standing in as Sergeant at very short notice and to Rotarian Cawas for volunteering to be the night reporter.
It was pleasing to finally induct Jaswant who has been attending as a guest for several months. Jaswant and Indira were introduced to the club by Rotarian Bernard and Roma. Jaswant has been a member of several Rotary Clubs previously in both Fiji and Australia. He has been a club president and returns to Rotary after an absence of 15 years. I am sure that Jaswant and Indira will fit in well with our Rotary Club family.
Thank you to all (including partners, and friends of Rotary from Probus, Cherrybrook Technology High School and Knox Students) who gave up Saturday morning to sort books. We had such a good turn-up (30 people) that all the books collected last week were sorted by lunch time. Thank you to Andrew and Max for organising the collections and co-ordinating the sorting team. Andrew gave members an update on set-up progress and reminded members that the next sort is on Tuesday March 13th, so if you are available please turn up at the church.
The St Gabriele’s playground project is almost complete. Thank you to Tony and the shed construction team on a job well done. The photos of the construction team at work at St Gabriel’s are amazing. I am impressed with the ability of multiple engineers to follow the construction plans and still get a shed without any left-over parts. Tom hopes to get the shade sails completed next week which will conclude this stage of the project.
