The first quarter of the financial year was a busy one for the community services with lots of Sunday events. We coordinated the distribution for Meals on Wheels with a number of recently inducted Rotarians. The next event is on 30th Dec – can you volunteer?
Our club was also busy with graffiti clean-up for Graffiti Action Day 2012.
We visited six nursing homes on Sunday Sept 2nd to wish the residents a happy Father’s Day, and gave each a nicely wrapped gift from Ryde Rotary.
The second quarter will involve activities on every day of the week, and it will get busier as the number of projects increases, including the three Christmas projects.
We are currently taking orders for the Christmas Puddings, Whisky Cakes and Biscuits. If you have not placed your order please do so ASAP.
The second project is the Tree of Joy which will be placed in four different locations: Top Ryde City, Ryde Library, West Ryde Market Place and Eastwood Shopping Centre. Volunteers are needed to look after each tree.
The third project is Christmas gift wrapping at Top Ryde City during the ten days leading up to Christmas. We will once again have James Ruse Agricultural High School Interact Club students helping with this project.
Have a wonderful time leading up to Christmas.
