Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise Rotary

Message from our President 

 
It's the end of March as I write this message.
 
We are pretty much doing our meetings face to face now. We still cater to a handful of members who cannot make the meeting, with a Zoom link.
 
March turned out to be a busy month with our annual District Conference with almost seventy Clubs attending at West HQ. After much delay in the planning because of COVID uncertainty, it was a really good effort. (see story in newsletter) Some top speakers and just the feel good factor in seeing Rotarian friends after so long. 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.

Fundraising

Most community programs need not only our time and attention but they need funds. Our Club like most Rotary clubs are out there fundraising for a specific purpose or cause. Click here to find out more about some of our fundraisers.

Projects

The members and friends of Upper Blue Rotary are a committed group of men and women who manage and implement a range of projects benefiting our community, both locally and overseas. These projects often start with an idea from an individual.

Club News
Our Club is supporting the Push-up Challenge for Mental Health. Kicking off on 1st June and finishing on 24th June, we will be doing 3,139 pushups symbolising the no. of Australians who have taken their lives in the past 12 months. By getting our Rotary Clubs in the Blue Mountains involved, we aim to encourage our community to participate, and in the process raise some funds for Lifeline, who provide critical online counselling for those in dire need. President Bill Pixton has set up a team Bilby 75. For all the details and to donate PUSH the PUSH button.

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.
