Members at the Clubs first meeting of the year this week were delighted to have a special visitor attend --that of Eketarina (Kate)... in Australia for several weeks under a sponsored Rotary programme-- "From Russia with Love"-- a Vocational experience for young Russian teenagers interested in expanding their horizons in their particular chosen profession.
Honorary member Peter Edwards was instrumental in introducing the programme in to Wahroonga in 1999 (Peter Joined the meeting also ) --Kate is being hosted in Sydney by Jo-Ann Moffat and Richard Jackson and their families. Welcome Kate --enjoy your visit!

A great Community/Youth activity undertaken on Sunday the 27th May--a number of Club members joined the staff at Abbotsleigh to assist with the schools' Red Shield effort--160 senior and junior girls and their parents spent the morning collecting on the local area.
Over $11000 was collected.
A signature occasion on the 27th May at the newly opened PCYC Waitara facility as eight local participating Rotary Clubs joined politicians and other local dignitaries at the opening of the wonderful Community facility.
