Hello, Members and our Rotary Friends receiving this eBulletin.
Christmas is coming and the social get together last Thursday at JIA Restaurant was enjoyed by all who attended.  The food was great and we commended our Assistant Governor, John Zhang, the owner.
We have two more social functions coming up!  The first is a social get together of our ‘Cluster Clubs’ being held at the Killara Golf Club on Tuesday night 6pm, 23rd November, $50 a head with lots of auctions, raffles and fun, all being hosted by our good friend Rotarian Andre Hariman.  Please let me know if you would like to join our Club’s table!  It should be a great night!
The second and main important function is our Club’s Giving Night, and Pride of Workmanship Awards on 13th December 2021, so please register now and come enjoy the night.
As mentioned last week, our BBQs are back! and we have our next on Saturday 27th November, so if you can spare the time, come on down to Bunnings Artarmon and enjoy a ‘Sausage Sizzle’.
Note; We are going to alternate our meetings, ‘face to face’ one week, and the next week on Zoom.   Next Monday, 22nd November we meet 'face to face' at the Union Hotel, Nth Sydney at 12.30pm for lunch.
Enjoy your newfound freedom, but be careful, wear your mask!
Yours in Rotary Service

President's Extra Message
You may recall our Club recently financed the purchase of a new Weber BBQ for Taldumande Youth Services and here it is in use;
Ms Liz de Rome, Taldumande's Grants, Community and Volunteers Officer responded;
"The new Weber BBQ and cover made its way to the Crows Nest Refuge and was quickly put to use! Our youth worker threw some snags and veges on the barbie and everyone enjoyed the first of many BBQs to come.
Thank you for so generously supporting our refuge in this way. The young people and the Taldumande staff agree this is a great way to bring everyone together".
