Greetigs all
What a week that was?   First, the Crows Nest Fair last Sunday. A HUGE thank you to Lea Condell for her splendid organisational skills.  What a crowd? What a beautiful day?   Plenty of questions about Rotary and what we do.  Met Virginia who might become a transfer Rotarian.  Met an Italian Rotarian (Ross still remembers his Italian), met three girls from ROTARACT in the Philippines. A drop in from our AG Jenny and surprise visit from DG Christine.  We had a great day and plenty of exposure for ROTARY.

Crows Nest Fair - 2023
Sunday October 15th, 2023.
 Thanks to the efforts of a number of members, co-ordinated by Leah Condell, Crows Nest Rotary had a extremely successful Crows Nest Fair. 
As well as reminding locals we are a key member of the community, we had 182 children taking part in our guessing competition, which lead to 12 "expressions of interest" in the club from their parents. Positioned between 2 food stalls with their queues crossing our stall, we were able to "engage" with the public non-stop.
