Could u kindly ask members if they can make the Zoom link up meeting with the RC of Helderburg Sunrise on Thursday afternoon 3pm on 19.7.18.
Any member interested who do
Hi guys. Here is a note from Graham Money from RC Helderburg Sunrise.  It was really interesting to experience this link up and to hear about Helderburg Education projects.  Graham has issued a challenge to help increase membership.  How are we going to handle this.  I think I might have a "membership think tank" section at one of our meetings in the near future and see if anybody has any ideas to,share.  I'll speak to the board tomorrow.  Thanks Mary

Subject: Today's meeting
Hello Mary.
Let me hasten to say what a pleasure to share our Club’s Rotary meeting with you and the members of the Terrigal RC.  Amazing what can be achieved with modern technology!  The next step will be to zoom in on one of your Club meetings. Haven’t worked out the timing yet in my mind, but it will probably mean us having a midnight feast or cup of coffee to keep us awake!!
Great to hear a little about your Club’s projects and activities. I mentioned membership-wise a Club challenge, which I hope your President Greg and members will accept on the basis that the more members we have, the more can be achieved.
My idea is a prize of some description or perhaps a certificate of recognition for the Club which achieves the highest net growth between now and 30 June next year. And to be fair and might I say generous, because of the size of the Helderberg Sunrise RC, we have to have a net growth of twice that of Terrigal’s.  Does that sound fair to you?  Open to any other suggestions you may have. 
Sadly I won’t be able to attend the link up on Saturday, but look forward to our next chat together.
All the very best,
I thought you may be interested in the information detailed in Linkedin
which hopefully you can open.


Welcome to Terrigal Rotary   

Greg Hooper  President 2018 - 19

Apologies, we are missing copy from Councillor Rebecca Gale Collins, hopefully this can be reprinted in next week's edition
A big thank you once again to the Rotary Clubs of the Central Coast for arranging this annual event and in particular to Terrigal Rotary Club for sponsoring and supporting our team.
The students and I are very grateful to Rotary for this support and for providing our students with such positive mentors. A wonderful day was had by all. Dale Massie,
Business Studies, Legal Studies & Economics Teacher
Mary is working with Terrigal High School and RC of H in South Africa.
After discussions with youth exchange people and PDG Graham Davies I thought it was impossible to use a Rotary Umbrella to exchange our student with a South African student. PDG Jeanette Scott who says there is no problem at all and it is all quite simple. She says we have sent many students on short term exchanges through the above club to club youth friendship exchange. Thanks for the suggestion Jill. We just have to ensure a counsellor, that the necessary youth paper work is done and that the legislation of working with children in S.A is adequate. Onward and upward.
Regards Mary
Can any of u make a coffee catch up on Friday morning, either Erina or Terrigal to talk the pamper day. Time and place to suite all.  Contact Mary

Last week we held a Presentation Night for Community Service Awards.
Six local people from a variety of areas in our community, were honoured with a plaque and certificate, detailing their achievements. 
A sizeable number of attendees included Past District Governors Terry Blair, Harold Sharp, Gina Growden and DG Elect, Peter Ward, as well as Honorary member, Adam Crouch M.P., who also presented the awards.
Awardees with their nominators
Our Club sponsored three RYPEN students this year from Terrigal High School.  They came to our meeting and gave very fluent accounts of their experience of the weekend camp. They shared their thoughts on the value of the activities which helped them with public speaking, teamwork, making friends and developing their own leadership skills.  All three highly recommended the camp and will encourage others to attend the winter camp this year.
On 4th March, Harley and Jill, manned the Club stall at the International Womens' Day Expo at Erina Fair.  Lynn Davies from Rotary Terrigal was on the committee that organised the Expo, and many congratulations to her and the team.
On Monday 30 November 2015, the Terrigal Rotary Club project, Bush to the Beach entered it second phase, with a visit to Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club who welcomed students from the Coonamble High School by providing a BBQ dinner sponsored by Gosford North Rotary.  Surf Club Member Tim Schofield spoke to the students, representatives from Coonamble and Terrigal High Schools, and Rotarians (from Gosford North and Terrigal) on the topic of “what is surf club life about” followed by questions and answers.
The students were presented with a Terrigal Surf Club Cap and T-Shirt which were gratefully received as mementos of their time at the beach. 
The students then went to Toowoon Bay Surf Club who had donated the use of their club as a dormitory base,  and thanks should be mentioned for the Club’s generous effort in cooking breakfast for the students early every morning.
The Coonamble students also visited the Marine Centre at Terrigal, went Ice Skating, played basketball at the PCYC Bateau Bay, went Bowling.  They visited Manly and Tuggerah ShoppingTown for movies and retail therapy.  The group then left early on Friday morning to return to Coonamble.
One high school has about 1,100 students and the other just over 280 students.  So what would students from the Central Coast of New South Wales – Terrigal High School have in common with or could learn from students from a school on the Central Western Plains of New South Wales – Coonamble High School?
The idea of an exchange for students who have identified as Aboriginal and satisfied a set of school participation requirements was conceived by Rotarian John Spath, Rotary Club of Terrigal following a visit to the Rotary Club of Coonamble in 2014.  The idea was promoted to teachers of the Coonamble and Terrigal High Schools who also shared a passion for providing interesting educational, learning and cultural opportunities to their students. 
The Rotary Club(s) of Coonamble and Terrigal and the Clontarf and Girls Academy which are both part of Coonamble High School are providing financial and organizational sponsorship and support for the student exchange.  The Coonamble and Terrigal High Schools are providing teacher and transport support.  The combined aspirations and commitment of Rotarians and members of the school executives has led to the creation of the Beach and Bush exchange experience.
The exchange has two legs out-bound Terrigal High School to Coonamble from Monday 19 November – four days (completed) and in-bound from Coonamble High School to Terrigal from Monday 30 November – five days.
On Saturday 14th November 2015 Year 8 Erina High School student Radley hosted a learn to surf and beach awareness experience for local youth.    
The community project was provided under the auspices of the YMCA – Youth Frontiers Mentoring Program.  Radley’s volunteer mentors  Ms Bianca Shearer and Mr David Mylan and the program coordinator Mr Scott Browne assisted Radley on the day.
 Mr Tony Hughes and Ms Tilly Hughes (father and  daughter), the proprietors of  and  professional surfing  instructors – Avoca and Terrigal Learn to Surf donated  their time and  equipment so some young people could  have an experience that  would not otherwise been  available to them.  After surfing Avoca Beach Surf Life  Saving Club, volunteer Surf Life  Saving Patrol Captain Mr  George Ruzek provided  an overview on the role and  responsibilities of a surf life saver and beach and surf  safety.
  The Rotary Club of Terrigal provided funding for a sizzle.   No food was wasted as  stock on      hand was donated to the  Woy Woy Youth Cottage.
A great day was had by all.
On behalf of Radley and Youth Frontiers thank you Rotary for your support.

Ceremony for Gifting the Terrigal Rotary Hall
August 13th 2015
A very well attended Ceremony for Gifting the Terrigal Rotary Hall to Gosford Council. Many thanks go to those who were instrumental in arranging the handover, and in planning the ceremony. Well done to David Mylan, Lyn Davies, Paul Harris, Robin Hearder and Peter Halliday.  Thanks also go to Gina Growden for her excellent talk of the history of the hall.  The Mayor, Lawrie McKinna gave a short talk, and then Gina and Lawrie unveiled the new plaque, dedicating the Hall to the memory of those Terrigal Rotarians who built and maintained it over the years. Morning Tea, provided by the Council, rounded off the ceremony, and allowed time for members and guests to chat and reminisce over the photos and history displayed.
