President's Report 
Well I’m sure we all enjoyed a quieter week and no weekend BBQ’s.
At our Meeting on Monday night, following the Board meeting, we heard some updates from Acting Community Director Bill on upcoming events, and others with planning of events.
Club Administration Director Dee distributed the Survey to those in attendance and it was pleasing to see so many completed and returned. Dee encourages all members to complete the survey (it was emailed to you all) and return asap. It is feedback from this that will help formulate plans to make changes, if necessary, and grow our Club.
A warm welcome back to Secretary Paul following his recent procedure and a huge “Get Well Soon” to Geoff on his progress to recovery which saw him moved to Katoomba for rehab.
Friday saw another successful “Rotary helping hand” to Ellison School by our members who provided lunch for students, parents & teachers at the Colour Run event.
Looking forward to a better result at this months Bunnings on Saturday with forecast warmer weather. Thanks to those who were able to assist in filling the roster.

Ellison School Rainbow Rush - Colour Day

Another very successful Rotary Club Of Springwood BBQ event.
The subject event is the major fundraiser for the school, and you helped make it a success.
The predicted rush for food occurred and we handled it well.
312 sausages handed out in about 2 hours.
These events are only a success when people like you volunteer your time. thank you again.
Regards Bill B
