The Streetwork Event at the Hornsby Mall today was well supported by the local community - lots of fun with push carts and music to entertain. President Stuart was interviewed by Ian Stuart ( Turramurra Rotary) on 2HHH during the morning. Congratulations Lucy Dahill and her committee.

Our members this week were delighted to welcome our District Governor Susan Wakefield and husband PDG John Wakefield. Susan in her relaxed manner spoke of several District highlights including a positive message on membership growth and also shared stories of her unforgettable experience attending a Polio immunization day in a town named Nua just outside Dehli.
 
PDG John outlined plans for the 2019 District Conference in Newcastle and encouraged members to take advantage of the early bird discounts.
 
Susan also presented President Stuart with an RI banner recognition for our excellent Rotary Foundation achievements in the 2017/18 Rotary year --one of only two presented in D9685  for the 2017/18 Rotary year.
 
A great spot for members to mingle meet extended families and enjoy a relaxing lunch and a few wines --thanks Rochelle for the initiative.
 
 

 

 
 
 
Our members had another great day at the Wahroonga Food and Wine Festival at the Wahroonga Park--the Festival Patrons were very generous as we launched our annual St Lucy's Raffle day. Congratulations to Margot Natoli for her wonderful organisation for the whole event.
 
 
 
 
We have the opportunity to get in the mood annually to promote, celebrate and raise funds for Australian Rotary Health (ARH) and wear a Hat to mark the occasion.

Past President Jim Mein and Gill caught up with our lovely Norwegian Exchange Student  #CorneliaBjorke (1997-1998), during their current travels --great memories of the wonderful experience for our Club having these fine young folks visit with us. 🌻  #rotaryyouthexchange
Club members and a group of Knox volunteers were up early to offer the Wahroonga Community an opportunity to make a contribution to the Cancer Council's special fundraising day.
Thanks to Dr Yvonne McMaster Kuringgai Women of the year and Cancer advocate for joining out team.
 
They assembled at the Wahroonga Railway station at 6.30am and raised $1500.
 
Well done folks and thanks to Jenetta!   More pics: Here
