I am sure that in your lifetime you have known people that struggle with mental health issues and it is becoming more evident now we are talking more openly and acknowledging the importance of sharing our inner most thoughts. We can see a broken arm or leg but we can’t see the turmoil inside a person’s mind.
 
There are many initiatives being promoted and Rotary Clubs are making a difference this year by “Lifting the Lid” on mental illness. Locally you will see Rotary members “Pop up” in one of your local coffee shops. Make yourself known to the team and support the program.

Rotary Club of Drysdale joined with the Friends of Point Richards Reserve and Community to plant over 800 trees and shrubs on National Tree Day in July 2018.
 
Rotarians and Friends of Rotary from the Rotary Club of Drysdale turned up on sunny Sunday morning with their tools of trade to plant trees. An introductory talk informed the planters of the value of trees for our environment and in particular for the small birds of the native foreshore reserve.
 
The task seemed overwhelming but it was completed in record time with lots of laughter. A bbq lunch was supplied followed by a bird watching walk and talk. A fun day for the tree planters.
The Rotary Club of Drysdale Changeover Dinner held on June 26 was where a large group of members, partners, Rotary members from other Clubs and Friends of Rotary gathered to celebrate a successful year and introduce the new Board and Committee who take over for the next 12 months.
