The annual Ku-ring-gai Chase Fun Run is to be held on the 16th June - at the Claude Cameron Oval East Wahroonga. In past years we have conducted the BBQ for the competitors and visitors.
 
The students from Knox Grammar School also take part to act as mentors for the disabled competitors.
 
Read more about the event - here.
 
We will need about a dozen volunteers on the day over two shifts -- so please register your interest - here - to assist with the event.
 
More details to follow.
 
 
 
I recently received an email from Robin Hall (Aged Services Coordination) asking if we could circulate our members with a survey about dementia support and risk reduction. This is all about Ku-ring-gai becoming an "aware community".
The text of the email is reproduced below.
 
"Hi All, We all know of a family that has been affected by dementia – it may be our own – and we know of the challenges presented by this diagnosis. The Ku-ring-gai Dementia Alliance and Ku-ring-gai Council are working to create a Dementia Friendly Community by:
providing information and support through expos and seminars encouraging accessible social opportunities collating and distributing printed and online resources
de-stigmatising dementia in the community.

 
To help us to understand exactly what is needed for people to live well with dementia, we would appreciate your input, via the surveys below, regarding your awareness of existing supports and services for people living with dementia, their families and carers.
 
The three surveys cover dementia support in Ku-ring-gai, early onset dementias and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Each survey takes 2 to 3 minutes to complete, and you can do all or any of the three. Links to the surveys in Survey Monkey are:

> Early onset dementia support in Ku-ring-gai   https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/dementia-earlyonset
> Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Chronictraumaticencephalopathy
 
Thank you very much for your participation."
 
 
 
Dear Rotary Club Secretary,
 
    I have very recently read your really wonderful Centenary Guide to Wahroonga Park.
 
"I was shocked to read the Wollemi planted in 2006 has 'disappeared'.  I have bought another one from the RBG Sydney.  I want to donate it with good strong protective fencing round it. It couldn't have had it.
 
The fine Araucarias planted on Stuart Street have really come into their own over the last few years and not to have a Wollemi seems truly sad. I understand, though, that it could not be planted in the vicinity of those marvellous tall trees already there as it would be too obvious and easy to remove.
 
I look forward to a reply from you soon.
 
Thanks in particular to the clever, civic-minded people who compiled this succinct and interesting little booklet."
Recently the District 9685 Rotary Youth Exchange Chair seeking input from Club Youth Directors as follows:
 
"The District 9685 Youth Exchange Committee is looking for a Secretary to commence on 1 February 2024!
The Rotary Youth Exchange Program provides an opportunity for school students to live and study abroad for 12 months. The program is coordinated at a district level by the Rotary Youth Exchange Committee, with students hosted and sponsored by individual Rotary clubs."
 
Bob, advises the outcome - as follows:
 
"I am pleased to say that Mariela Salisch contacted the current Secretary for Youth Exchange and had a 1 hour discussion with her. Mariela was then asked to attend the RI Offices at Norwest on Saturday to meet the Committee and Mariela was then offered the position effective 01 Feb 2024."
 
 
We all wish Mariela our best wishes in her new role and an exciting opportunity to work on a fabulous Rotary programme.
