Thanks to Dinah and Russell Crofts we are going enjoy an authentic Aussie Backyard BBQ next Wednesday.  All we need to do is bring our own drinks, dress up in our favourite Aussie gear and pay $25pp into the club account ... details are below:

BEFORE and AFTER shots of the Elf Headquarters! A double garage full of gifts is now empty and under the trees of so many nursing homes from Manly to Hornsby. Well done everyone ... this is what Christmas is all about! Merry Christmas to one and all who made Rotary Club of St Ives Tree of Joy project happen!

 

John W arrived with gusto ... the spirit of the season in abundance! After consulting with the Elf about directions and details of the nursing home the car was loaded and John was about to spread his good cheer with others. The Rotary Club of St Ives Tree of Joy brings joy to all involved!

 

 

 

Marie and Graham arrived singing carols! They quickly scooped up the gifts they needed to deliver to Southern Cross Nursing Home and were off again. They received the 'thumbs up" on arrival when they dropped off the gifts. Rotary Club of St Ives are good at spreading Christmas cheer!
 
Peter was pleased to arrive at Elf Headquarters this morning and in good spirits to collect the gifts going to Kari Court and filled the car with presents! Presents gratefully received by Veronica (Nursing Unit Manager) and Lax (Manager) at Kari Court. The Rotary Club of St Ives Tree of Joy will have delivered 1,110 gifts to people in nursing homes in the North Shore by the end of today - it could not happen without the wonderful support of our community! Merry Christmas to all.
 
True to his word Tim was right on time to collect the gifts from Elf Headquarters. He was then off to the Thomas and Rosetta Agst Nursing Home. In addition to photos loading up the car you can see Rotarian Tim and staff member, Jeanette taking a little rest after unpacking the car and getting them inside. A happy Christmas Day guaranteed thanks to the Rotary Club of St Ives Tree of Joy!
 
President Harold (in the red santa shirt and hat) is ready to confer Honorary Rotary Membership to Ian Edwards (yellow shirt) who has been supporting his father every year in the Tree of Joy delivery process to the nursing homes. Thank you Ian for being such a wonderful son to Wal - he was obviously an amazing father and clearly the apple didn't fall too far from the tree!
 
Need to make sure all the presents are in their correct boxes, correctly labelled and numbered! Wal phones the nursing home ahead to make sure they will be there ready and waiting when they arrive. Then it's into the car and off to deliver! At 101 years young Wal Edwards you have us in awe of your commitment, compassion and your cognitive strength - you are a legend!
 
The famous list! If you haven't seen the list, then here it is! Wal's famous list, neatly scribed and numbered in priority of delivery. Wal Edwards has been doing the Rotary St Ives Tree of Joy for so many years he almost knows the names of every nursing home off by heart but that doesn't stop this military style operation being formerly listed and checked off with precision.
 
Rotarian Murray is also a volunteer at our local SES. He was on duty with them today and needed a big boot to load lots of gifts so he had two hats on today. Gifts delivered to Ainslie at North Haven Nursing Home Turramurra from the Rotary Club of St Ives Tree of Joy.
 
It was a very late night Thursday that the Elves worked checking off lists for the Tree of Joy. There were a few presents missing, so a quick trip in to the Tree of Joy Friday morning. Gifts collected and ticked off the list! Now for the delivery!
Barry's was the first car to arrive Friday morning to collect gifts for the residents at McQuoin Park, Waitara. The Elves even had special instructions about getting parking as some locations are a bit tricky to deliver to at this time of year. Michelle was there to receive the boxes of gifts that were going to the different centres: McGovery, Carter, Lewis, McAuley at McQuoin Park along with our very best wishes for a wonderful Christmas.
