Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise Rotary

Message from our Joint Presidents

 
It's the end of September as I write this message.
 
Sandra de Gruchy and myself have been sharing the President's role in 2022-23. So far so good.
 
The last few months have been busy with projects, membership, youth and planning for the next year.
 
Our Cookbook project, under Jenny Hartnett's leadership, has been powering along, bringing Club members together. See story below about this exciting project and watch this space for updates. Our other big project has been assisting the Association of Bell, Clarence and Dargan Inc (ABCD,  fund a new Community Hall that was destroyed in the 2019-20 bushfires. It has been rewarding to see these communities come together with a common purpose, celebrated with "shovel turning" event ahead of construction. Our Phill Isaacs has been the key person sorting out the complexities of grants and Rotary funding.
 
I am in no doubt that Rotary is strong and forward-looking. We are engaged with our communities and there to help in these difficult times. We are confident that our Club activities, and working together with other Rotary Clubs, will lead to significant benefit to our local community. We have ambitious and challenging goals and will be making major announcements shortly about our Homelessness Project.
 
Please call/text me if you would like to know more about Rotary, our Club and our 2022 projects. Do you know you can be involved in some of our community projects in the Blue Mountains, working alongside some pretty interesting people. It's always rewarding to participate and have fun while you're doing it.

Club News
 
Well we are now launching the Cookbook. After many months, if not years, the Cookbook team has finished the "It's Not Just a Cookbook".  It will be worth the wait. It is a homegrown publication put together by our Club and Rotary friends and supported by so many in our Blue Mountains community. It is a highly professional presentation and it will make a great present.  All the funds raised from sales will go towards our Homelessness project.
 
It's Tuesday 29th November at Katoomba RSL at 5:30pm.  It's $30 per person, which includes finger food and a complimentary drink.

This event will be well-supported by the community, so we encourage you to book early as numbers are capped.

Our Club has made a long-term commitment to helping the homeless in the Blue Mountains. We have now raised over $34,000, to this critically important Mountains initiative. This is just the beginning.
 
A group of Rotary Clubs are now negotiating with a range of stakeholders, including state government, BMCC , social housing organisations and corporates on advancing this major project. We will make some announcements over the next few months about the use of these funds and how they will benefit those homeless folk in the Mountains.
