Our President’s Message

Dear fellow Rotarians, firstly thank you for the confidence and trust in me to serve you as your president for the coming year.

By all appearances we had a very successful club changeover at the Northbridge Golf Club and I trust that those who attended had an enjoyable evening.

The occasion was made special by the attendance of our new District Governor Peter Ward as well as that of Past District Governor Bruce Allen. The Mayor of North Sydney Jilly Gibson, a great friend of the club, was also a guest and so was the new MP for North Shore, Felicity Wilson. A special mention must go to our Master of Ceremony Tom Sweeney who was a class act and added much to the enjoyment of the evening.

It was an enjoyable day with perfect weather for over 40 people at the Fern Valley Ranch farm.  Friends and families participated in cattle feeding, orange picking, hiking to a scenic waterfall, and a BBQ lunch throughout the day.  Funds were raised in support of providing computer education to the Learning Centre for Youth (Sentru Formosan ba Juventude no Communidade) in Dili, Timor-Leste.

A succulent meal for a benevolent cause! If you missed our Peking Duck Luncheon, here's some photos from the day. Almost 60 people came to break Peking Duck pancake together and raise money for an earthquake stricken Nepal. Prizes from Luis Garcia signed soccer balls to silver candelabras were won, Nepalese beanies were bought and all in all we raised over $3600. Thanks to all who came! This money has been put to good use by the Rotary Club of Dhulikhel towards the reconstruction of Nepal.

Come give your taste buds an adventure and help rebuild Nepal at the same time! Nepal was devastated by two earthquakes in 2015 and much support is still needed to help rebuild their lives. See the brochure below for details and come along OR better still get a group of family and friends together!
The mental devastation will stay with the Nepalese people for a very long time but at least we can do something to mend the physical one; hope you can help!

The concept of the Tree of Joy has been part of the Club for a number of years and we give thanks to our Past President Jenny for being the driving force that keeps it going. The objectives are to provide Christmas gifts to those people who might not otherwise receive one. 
Sometime before Christmas, Jenny contacts those who are willing to have trees in their businesses and then appropriate labels are printed.  The members shared in putting ties on these labels which Jenny had printed. The labels are then placed on Christmas trees located in prominent positions in those groups and businesses who have agreed to take them. The number of trees that go out is growing and currently stands about.
The public are then invited to take a card/label from the tree, purchase the gift and return it to the tree. Once all tags are gone or even before a number of members pick up the gifts left and then Jenny with her team sorts the gifts and distributes them to the recipients via a list of agencies prior to Christmas.  Over the many years that our Club has been involved in this project we have collected many thousands of gifts.
Thanks once again to PP Jenny's fine organisational skills and enthusiasm we were able to host many of our Tree of Joy participants to a thank you luncheon at February 4th's meeting.This worked out extremely well for those attending as they were able to receive their framed awards from our Rotary Club, in recognition, for display at their office or in their reception area.
Representatives from the following companies received their awards and others are to be awarded over the next weeks.Those awarded were to the North's Leagues Club,Meat & Live Stock Association,ALI Group Pty Ltd, CoverMore, Syngenta Crop Protection.
The Photos of those being presented Certificates are as follows:

The Rotary Club of North Sydney is one of the foundation clubs in Australia. It was chartered on 16 August 1928 and was then only the third Rotary Club to be chartered in the waratah state. But just because we're an old club doesn't mean we're not active! That's why we're also the longest standing club in our District (9685), which embraces the northern suburbs of Sydney.

There's a lot going on at our club including local projects and activities that serve to improve life in local communities, as well as international projects that expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe.

We also embrace the business community with vocational service activities, and support and stimulate youth in our communities to achieve their life potentials. Check out our Club Projects to see what causes we've been involved in.

Our members come together every Thursday for lunch at the North Sydney Leagues Club located just up Miller Street from the North Sydney CBD. All visitors are welcome to join our meetings and, in particular, those that are interested in learning more about Rotary and experiencing an hour in the life of a Rotarian. Come and see what we're all about!
