The Garage Sale 2018
We have just had our best and most successful Garage Sale on the weekend of 13 & 14 October raising a record gross - north of $35k.
Excellent Project Management and a large number of dedicated volunteers, some putting in hours of effort, in the weeks before the weekend contributed to this result.
Monday 6:30pm for 7:00pm - Springfield House - 245 New Line Road, Dural 2158

It is good to be back at Rotary meetings after a wonderful 2 months leave.
Thank you to President Elect Keith for doing a wonderful job as acting President including taking care of the final arrangements for the combined clubs event.
It was pleasing to have 150 present tonight representing 12 of the 17 clubs that were invited from the Upper North Shore, Hills and Norwest zones. Judging by the level of conversation it was evident a lot of fellowship occurred so I hope everyone enjoyed the evening and that we can do more of these combined meetings to allow clubs get to know each other better. There was support to do another combined meeting with Riccardo as the speaker.
The Rotary Club of West Pennant Hills and Cherrybrook had pleasure in welcoming District Governor Elect Kalma McLellan, and Assistant Governor’s, John Fenessy, and Bruce Jacobs. The Club presidents present tonight, their club members and partners and the guests of Rotarians were welcomed. Finally, a welcome was made to Riccardo Rossi, our guest speaker, who told us about his Afghan Adventures which was a wonderful insight to living in the UAE with his family and the war on terror in Afghanistan. Riccardo was formally introduced by Rotarian Kerry.
Thank you to Sergeant Rosemary for running the meeting tonight, which was a simple meeting with no formal Rotary content to allow Riccardo enough time to tell his story. The night started by candlelight due to a district wide power outage.
Fortunately, power was restored in time for the talk.
Thank you Rob Clark for being our night photographer.
We mixed up the seating for the clubs to encourage Rotarians to take this opportunity to learn about other clubs in our area. Kalma was invited to say a few words.
I remind the WPHC Rotarians that the next time we meet will be Tuesday April 23rd at WPH Sports Club to join with WPH and Cherrybrook Lions for their annual ANZAC Commemoration Dinner.
Until April 23rd have fun and be an inspiration to others.
