News & Stories

This year Bernie Boxer  wrote to some seven primary schools about our Club's Citizenship Award, but only one school - Goodwood Primary School - responded and took up the offer. The Goodwood Primary School selected “Lucia Ebeling” as their winner and the citation for the win, in her own words, was:
  • "I was a Traffic monitor and gave up some time before and after school
  • "helped out at goody patch
  • "MC for goody patch open day
  • "kidscaf, a charity group which raises funds for an orphanage
  • "performing arts leader
  • "I gave up my lunchtimes to be a play-at-lunchtime leader
  • "I represented my school by playing soccer, came second in discus at SAPSASA and went to beach volleyball
  • "I give up weekends to volunteer at my riding school
  • "I have locked up the bike shed, put up the  flags and put out the bins all year."
Lucia was presented with a club recognition certificate (below) and a set of three classical novels (donated by Bernie Boxer) at the school’s final assembly on Friday 12th December by Bernie, on behalf of President Andrew. Thanks to Alan Bartram for printing the Certificate and book plates.

The club's annual Xmas Trailer Raffle is on again this year. The MEGA prize is the 6' x 4' trailer and contents:
  • 1 x outdoor BBQ

  • 2 x cartons of quality wine - white and red

All proceeds to Youth and Local Community projects. Tickets are available - where the trailer is on show, directly from the club <hydepark@rotaryclub.org.au> or any of its members.
The trailer is on display at Unley and Mitcham Shopping Centres on most weekends and at selected events in the Unley area. Winner will be drawn on Friday 19th December.
 
Pres Andrew and Bev are seeking donations of NEW toys or adult stocking fillers you may have OR WISH TO DONATE, OR KNOW OF A BUSINESS THAT IS WILLING TO DO SO, eg  (BBQ aprons/ BBQ Tools, Children's Books, Toys, outdoor brooms/rakes/garden gloves, picnic set, children's golf sets/tennis rackets, plastic ball, pool toys...) anything that would look good in a stocking and will be reasonably durable within the stocking.
 

 
With so much turmoil in the world, it's easy to forget just how lucky we are to live in a country where most of us don't have to worry about having adequate shelter from the elements, provision of clean water and safety from persecution & conflict.
 
Sometimes the news is so overwhelming that we switch off, despairing that there is nothing we can do to help. But there is always something we can do. ShelterBox responds immediately with emergency shelter for disaster victims. Find out more about ShelterBox and where they send their emergency relief containers at: www.shelterboxaustralia.com.au.
 
The Rotary Club of Hyde Park has been a strong supporter of ShelterBox for many years. Here's where most of our boxes have been deployed, HOWEVER the club has contributed more than those listed as they are yet to be deployed or posted on the ShelterBox website. The latest acknowledgment (yet to be deployed as at 23 Oct 2014) is pictured below. You can probably recognise the disaster from the destination and date of deployment. {Home Page>Links>Club Links>ShelterBoxes Tracker}

A mild day, slightly overcast and just perfect for the annual Goody Patch BBQ supporting Goodwood Primary School with their Xmas breakup and fundraiser. Hyde Park Rotary was there in force cooking their gourmet sausages and vegie patties. It was also hands-on promoting the club's Xmas Trailer Raffle. A fun day was had by all. Thanks to G2 for these pictures.
