Hi Members and Friends,
 
As the Christmas and New Year break fades rapidly into distant memory we can now focus squarely, on what the next few months holds, and get down to making sure all our plans come to fruition.
 
The big one, of course is the Lake Mac Autumn Fair.
 
I have been working quite hard on this, and we are gradually building up a good selection of participants and stalls, Rotary run, charity run and commercially run.
 
Meanwhile, Adrian and Toni McLean are starting to pull together the entertainment aspects.

WOW! Well what a year this has been. One for us all to remember.

It started with the devastating bushfires up and down our east coastline and the smokey days down at the lake reminded us what others were facing. Our Club donated $2000 to an appeal run by Taree Rotary Club – given in $1000 vouchers to people in that district who had lost their homes.

Our Rotary year was soon into gear, with a Vocational visit to the Red Frog, providing services for families with autistic children. After an interesting talk and tour of the premises we dined at Warners at the Bay.
 
 
The Christmas Trailer Raffle has been drawn with the winners being drawn at Survivors R Us on Friday 18th December and the lucky winners are:
 
1st: Damon McDonald
2nd: Ann Humpreys
3rd: Ryan Field

Barry introduced the guest speaker, Peree Watson, and CEO of “Got Your Back Sista”, Mel Histon.
 
As the registered charitable arm of The Sista Code movement, their vision is to see women and their children happy, thriving and living independently after escaping the trauma of domestic violence.
 
As such, Got Your Back Sista offers benevolent relief and support to women and children escaping domestic violence and are at risk of living below the poverty line. They give a hand up for them to begin again and live independently.
Leckie Poetry Night Monday 19 October 2020 was hosted by the Rotary Club of Cardiff this year with our usual participating clubs Charlestown and Warners Bay joining in for the long standing fun and friendly competition.
 
Congratulations to all who participated by writing and reciting a poem, and to all those who wore a special hat for the occasion.
 
The overall winner of the Leckie Poetry prize was Eleanor Cunningham, RC Cardiff. AG Craig Henningham was awarded a special prize for his hat that was “nearly in season”
 
Some of the competing poems are below:


Twilight Bike Rides Every Thursday at 5.30pm we gather at Speers Point Park to join Barry’s Twilight Rides. The rides are a community event and each week have included a few local riders joining Club members on investigating different rides around our beautiful lake.

They also provide a social get together for Club members and community members whether riders or spectators. You don’t need to be a rider, or on the roster, to come and enjoy the afternoon. We have streamlined the organisation. We provide soft drink or water as well as a sweet treat as a reward for sharing the evening. A reminder that a gold coin donation is appreciated and will go towards RCWB’s community service.
 
Text Yes, name and number of riders to 0428 259 769.
 
We look forward to sharing this regular event with you.
