Rotary… serving the local, national and international community.
Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise is a group of like-minded men and women, all volunteers, who have a passion for making a difference here in the Mountains and around the world. We are ordinary people who love helping others, with a focus on families and communities.
Each week our members are inspired by excellent speakers and community leaders who inform us about interesting issues or challenge us to be better people. We enjoy the friendship of our fellow Rotarians and have plenty of fun along the way.
We meet every Tuesday morning at 7:15am at the Mountain Heritage Hotel in Katoomba. Our club is a successful, growing club where new members are always welcome.
Come along and see for yourself.
COME OUT SWINGING CONCERT
Our fundraising concert on 2nd September, 2016, “Come Out Swinging”, was a great success. We raised over $12,000 for Motor Neurone Disease and Huntington’s Disease. About 150 people turned up for a fun night of swing music, dancing and the auction at St Mary’s Rugby League Club.
About the Concert
We enticed the renowned Terry Rae and his Big Swing Band featuring the legendary Ed Wilson on trombone. The Big Swing Band is made up of 18 musicians, three vocalists and three dancers. It will be a mixture of swing, jazz and pop. The musicians donated their services as a contribution to the fundraising.
MC for the night is Pat Drummond. Pat is an Australian singer/songwriter based in Medlow Bath. He has over 40 years in the Australian music scene, with over twenty albums and numerous industry Awards to his credit. In January he was awarded the 2016 Lifetime achievement ‘Songmaker Award’ in Tamworth.
This concert is a prelude to local Rotarian Bob Montgomery’s next bicycle ride from Darwin to Perth next year. Many of you will recall Bob’s finish at Leura last year.
