Do You have Time for Rotary? Are you new to Rotary? Rotary welcomes women and men.
Our trailer BBQ comes with 2 cooks. To book, or to discuss your requirements, please phone: SANDRA MATZ on 0414 747 657 OR email Sandy here. Before you call, check our Calendar (under Activities) in case it's already booked.
Our standard hire includes two cooks @ $75 per hour with a minimum 3-hour charge of $225. THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE FOOD OR BEVERAGES. Other arrangements can be negotiated.
We do not hire the trailer BBQ out without Rotarians in attendance.
News & Stories
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.
Thanks to Sam and Libby Savis who are donating wine (although we will be putting empty boxes in Trailer during displays) and we will be needing soft drink, BBQ and esky. Please talk to Andrew or myself if you have or know of someone who is willing to donate this.
Fortunately last year's winner donated the Prize back to charity... a Rotarian won it.... (which we in turn donated most of it to the Salvation Army who had people in need that used the contents gratefully, and we 'purchased' the trailer back so we are already in front profit wise this year!!
We will try to limit the times we require helpers out and about with the trailer selling tickets (we have a limited number of towbar-drivers), but when you are given your books of tickets, the best way to sell them is to go out with the Christmas Trailer and have fun selling Rotary at the same time.
We plan to have some marketing photos of WHAT HYDE PARK ROTARY CLUB DOES, so if you have any photos or ideas of how we can have a display ( or maybe we make a wind banner with these photos on it) and know someone who can assist us with this, that would be great.
Perhaps once again contact Andrew or myself asap if you can assist in this area, as Rotary believes the best way to raise money is to show the public what we are using it for!! both within the community and overseas!!
Thanks for you anticipated assistance in the next few months, which will be busy fundraising times for us, but fun being out in the community with our 'yellow shirts', Rotary Caps and having Rotary conversations.
And don't forget if you are out selling tickets give them one of our Community Link booklets to show them the sorts of things that Rotary clubs in the Unley/Mitcham area do.
PS As this is going to the 'Friends of Rotary' and some other people who have opted to receive our newsletter, if you are willing to spend a couple of hours assisting us with some PR and ticket selling or BBQ cooking from now until Christmas, please drop us an email or give us a ring and I am sure that we can fit you in your preferred time slot.... we can guarantee you will have fun!!
PPS If you know of a venue that would like us to bring our great Christmas Trailer to add atmosphere to their function and they are having a lot of 'traffic' attending, PLEEEAAASE let us know... as they are fun events for us to 'work' at. EG we would love a venue the day after the Christmas Pageant (Sunday 9th November) as kids love to see Christmas Stockings and Bikes at that time of the year. Sandy Matz
