Thanks very much to Peter Rixon, Peter Hill, Chris, Bill, Betsy, Theresa Lythgo and Norm for selling tickets at the turf club on Saturday.

SOCIAL NIGHT BBQ AT HUXTABLES

 

 




Middle Aged Men (not) In Lycra

We are pretty pleased because our combined Rotary clubs fund raising bike ride just raised over $17,000 for Southern Youth and Family Services. They are a wonderful organisation looking after kids with troubles in their life. It was great to see some of those kids riding with us and getting sponsors. Its not too late to chip in if you want to. Go to ride4rotaryillawarra.com.au , pick a rider and follow the instructions.




CLEANUP DAY 10/3/18

Elaine Hart, Peter Rixon, Di North, Theresa and Rowan did a cleanup on the back roads around Mt Kembla. We collected all sorts of things including carpet, beer bottles, tyres and other old car parts.

Brian tried valiantly to make it but was geographically challenged

Peter Hill came down with the Lurgi and couldn’t make it.

A few people are using this beautiful area – which is part of our home –  as a tip.

We had a good post mortem at the coffee shop on Woodlawn Ave.
