Deep Cove  “Working Bee”

The club is looking to do another service trip to Deep Cove to assist the Deep Cove Outdoor Education Trust to tidy up before the schools start visiting in 2022.

The date to mark in your diary is:  January 28 and 29, 2022.

 

 
 
When Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988, there were 350,000 cases of polio in 125 countries every year. We’ve made great progress against the disease since then. 

Our club sponsored Jessica Spain to go on an Outward Bound course in January, 2021.  A photo of Jessica and her beautiful thank you card is the main image of this week's bulletin.  She says the Outward Bound experience improved her both mentally and physically. 

A beautiful tribute was held at the club meeting on September 21, 2021, to allow members to pay their respects to long serving member Warren Warburton (1921-2021). 

Led by President Lisa the tribute covered his love of Rotary, his penchant for routine and ensuring all Presidents were up to scratch. Members also shared personal stories about Warren, from his love of whisky, recounting how time is precious to all of us, his wars years and the wonderful wit he had and the special way he had to make people feel welcomed.

Warren had a special seat at Rotary, and for the tribute his seat was reserved by a display of poppies at the table to honour him.  

A prayer was held by Peter Dunn to close the tribute. 

One of the fitting statements in the tribute was the following quote: 

To be born a gentleman is an accident; to die a gentleman is an achievement.

If you missed the story about how Warren joined Rotary we have included it again for members.
